The press conference of the mega fight Mayweather vs Pacquiao begins on March 11 and you can watch the live stream of the kickoff conference below live at 4:30p ET/1:30p PT via Youtube live stream. The said press conference is the start of the road to the May 2 fight.
(02/21/2015) Finally, after several years of negotiations, requests and series of fan and money may trash talks, the fight is here for us to taste. Mayweather vs Pacquiao will be happening this May 2, 2015. It was announced by both fighters in social media: Shots and Twitter. Later, I will make a dedicated page for this fight to give you an update on what is happening on their training and the other details about the big match< .
(01/10/2009) There's an information today that I found from Bleacher Report about the negotiation transcript of Mayweather's camp to save the fight event.
(01/07/09): Bad news!!! The negotiation failed and there will be no Pacquiao vs. Mayweather. This is after the mediation session failed to resolve the differences of the two fighters. Tsk, the richest fight ever just won't happen. I don't know if it will in the future. If not Mayweather, who will be next? Write your reactions below regarding this fight.
(01/03/09): Good news guys! Bob Arum now said in a news that he is willing to meet with Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer next week and try if they can work out something on the Pacquiao vs. Mayweather fight. There's a possibility that this Monday or within this week, Judge Weinstein, the same judge who assisted in mediation with Top Rank and Golden Boy Promotions in the past, will be mediating between the two camps with Pacquiao's lawyer and Mayweather's party. Well, we can expect some development here and if everything goes well, Pacquiao will start his training in LA Wild Card Gym next week and expect for the mega welterweight bout to happen.
(01/01/09): Bob Arum gave up the idea of Pacquiao vs. Maweather megafight and shift to negotiating with either Yuri Foreman (WBA Super Welterweight champion) or Paul Malignaggi (former IBF Junior Welterweight Champion). On the other hand, Pacquiao file a case against the Mayweathers (Jr., Sr., Uncle Roger) in connection with their accusations against him on using performance-enhancing drugs. Its a fight not on the ring but on the court worth $75,000 fine. Tsk, what a waste!
(12/27/09): Recent news from Examiner.com said that Mayweather's camp just back-off the USADA or Olympic style drug testing. They are expecting that this will make the fight to continue. Ah, I am really getting tired of the "push-pull" negotiations and I will just update this post when they finally ink the contract.
(12/24/09): No more Mayweather vs. Pacquiao? They are opening the possibilities of Pacquiao vs. Foreman or Malignaggi vs. Pacquiao and I don't think it will be what the fans want. Let see what happens after the holiday.
12.23.09 - Drug Test procedure requirements of Mayweather might hinder the much anticipated Pacquiao vs. Mayweather superfight. He wants the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) test procedures instead of the usual method. This requires a blood to be taken from the fighter which Pacquiao don't like. Tsk, it will be such a waste if this thing will got in the way.
(12/14/09): I previously said that the fight is confirmed. Bob Arum suppossedly will officially announce the fight today and it seems that it will not happen yet. Maybe this is because of the issues involving the final place to hold the fight. I am in waiting mode right now. I will just replace this update when the official announcement comes.
Its confirmed! Pacquiao vs. Mayweather is on and set to happen on March 13, 2009. Location is still undecided but Manny Pacquiao prefer to fight at Las Vegas according to a recent interview.
“Fight Mayweather!” This is the shout of the boxing fans around the world after Manny Pacquiao (50-3-2, 38 KOs) won against Miguel Cotto of Puerto Rico last November 2009. It is expected by a lot of boxing analysts and been said that there are no other qualified fighter to fight the pound for pound king, other than the number one of USA, Floyd Mayweather Jr. (45-0-0 25 KOs). It will be gigantic fight as two best fighters of the world will clash to prove themselves that they are the best of their worlds.
On a recent news Pacquiao and Mayweather already agreed to fight in a 50-50 split share on the $50 million up front and Bob Arum of Top Rank promotion is just tuning up everything before they officially announced the exact date and location of the upcoming fight. It was previously reported that the tentative fight date is March 13, 2010 and there are 3 locations that they are considering to hold the fight, Dallas Cowboys Stadium, MGM Grand Garden Arena and the New Orleans Superdome. On a separate report, Freddie Roach said in an interview, that he personally don’t like the date as he feels that the date is too soon for the boxer. He said that Pacquiao suffers some injuries on his previous fight and the political plans of Pacquiao will surely be distracting his training. “If they want the best of Pacquiao, it will be after the election 2010,” he added.
In my opinion, it will be much better if Pacman will be fighting after the election. In this case he will be more focus and will really be very prepared to face the undefeated Mayweather Jr. I know everyone is excited already to see them both on the ring but if we really want a good fight then we should see both of them on best shape and that is not before the election. However, it is up to them if they will pursue with the date. If in case the match will happen, we will be here to witness this much awaited fight of the year.
