A Flurry of Reports Raise Possibility of Pacquiao-Mayweather

08/13/2010

The saga continues....

The world wants to know: Will Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather finally meet in the ring?

A string of recent stories in the national media point to several possibilities....

Yahoo boxing scribe Kevin Iole reported that the fight is "inching toward reality. Pacquiao promoter Bob Arum of Top Rank said Wednesday that issues have been resolved and the only thing standing between the fight being made is a decision by Mayweather as to whether he wants to fight again in 2010. Arum has said for months that Pacquiao will fight on Nov. 13, whether it is against Mayweather or another opponent."

SI.com reporter Chris Mannix adds: "Arum did not disclose terms of the deal, which is expected to be a 50-50 split and include some form of drug testing. The fight is scheduled for Nov. 13 at a location to be determined. Las Vegas and Dallas are considered the favorites to land the fight."

"If Manny Pacquiao can't secure a highly anticipated fight with undefeated welterweight Floyd Mayweather Jr. for Las Vegas," writes ESPN.com's Calvin Walkins, "Plan B would bring the newly sworn in congressman from the Phillipines back to Arlington, Texas.

"Pacquiao's trainer, Freddie Roach, said if the fight with Mayweather doesn't happen -- progress on the contract talks between the camps hasn't been publicized -- Cowboys Stadium would host a Nov. 13 bout between Pacquiao and an undetermined opponent."

We report, you decide.
