UPDATE: Sources with AllHipHop confirm that a deal is close, but the respective camps are ironing out details. The fight could amass a quarter of a million dollars, according to promoter Bob Arum.
“No, I’m aware of the report, but there are still some contractual issues to work out,” Arum said in a brief phone interview with the New York Daily News. “It’s close but not done yet.”
They met for the first time in Miami just a few days ago and now Manny Pacquiao And Floyd Mayweather Jr. have made a fight.
According to numerous media outlets, the pair have a date for a megafight that could dwarf all previous bouts.
The fight is tentatively set for May 2.
An announcement could be made at the Super Bowl this Sunday.
