Pacquiao says fight with Mayweather on

Mayweather vs. Pacquiao Cartoon

It’s a done deal, says Manny Pacquiao.

Speaking to GMA 7, Pacquiao said he is just awaiting the contract to be signed by Floyd Mayweather before the unbeaten US fighter makes a formal announcement of their May 2 showdown at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

“Oo, positive na,” Pacquiao said when told if the welterweight super fight would proceed as planned.

Pacquiao said Mayweather’s signauture is the only thing that is preventing the fight from being made official.

“Pirma na lang (ni Mayweather),” said the 36-year-old Filipino star, who easily beat up Chris Algieri in his last outing in Macau late last year.

As of yesterday afternoon, there was still no announcement from the 37-year-old Mayweather, who usually posts breaking news about his fights on his social media.

An announcement is said to be imminent based on posts by noted fight scribes on their respective social media accounts the last couple of days.

Even Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum, who was about to throw in the towel, told a Filipino reporter about a major development a couple of days ago that prompted him to remain hopeful and very optimistic.

Still, without Mayweather’s confirmation, not even Pacquiao’s upbeat mood and startling statements don’t mean a thing.

Being the acknowledged A-side fighter, everything will come from Mayweather.

Remember, the A-side has the signature song in a record label.

Last month, the two fighters met during a NBA game in Miami and discussed making a fight happen, a match that is expected to surpass all existing box-office and attendance records.

    Thanks for nothing Tempo. Report the story when the contract is signed and the ink is dry. I still don’t believe Gayweather is man enuff to fight Pac Man. It hasn’t happened in all these years and by now this deal should have been done. The fact that its still all speculation is troubling.

    Gayfeather said he would fight Khan and even had fans vote to choose his opponent, only to have him opt out and fight the statue Maidana. Granted, Fraud has boxed himself into a corner by running his mouth about May 2nd but this “thing” has no character, no integrity and no cojones!

    Don’t hold your breath on little Fraud Gayfeather fighting Pac Man; it ain’t going to happen.

    if they do fight, I hope ref. Kenny BrainLess is the referee.
    Kenny BrainLess will allow JailWeather to grab, hold, clinch, tie up, elbow, hug, embrace… Pacquiao endlessly & repeatedly…… tsk tsk

    The ex-convict Gayweather will not sign the fight contract.
    He will look for another excuse. His next excuse for not signing the contract
    is that on May 2, 2015, he will have his menstrual period. Boxing fans all over
    the world should BOYCOTT all future fights of ex-convict Gayweather.
