By no means official yet, but it looks like at long last this is going to happen. Mayweather has decided now is the time to fight Pacquiao and has stopped shying away from the fight, there's no going back from that now.
Let's see how it progresses from here and hope they agree soon, if this goes ahead it will be one of the most memorable events in the history of sport, regardless of how the fight goes....I get excited every time I think about it !Floyd Mayweather Jnr has challenged Manny Pacquiao to fight him on May 5.
The WBC welterweight champion’s plans to fight on that date in Las Vegas looked to be dead and buried when he was sentenced to prison.
But his 90-day term was deferred and the five-division world champion looks set to finally agree terms with Pacquiao for what could be the first $100m bout in history.
Mayweather tweeted: 'Manny Pacquiao I'm calling you out let's fight May 5th and give the world what they want to see.
'My Jail Sentence [sic] was pushed back because the date was locked in. Step up Punk.'
The pair, who many consider to be the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world, have put off meeting each other in the ring despite both camps promising a deal on several occasions.
The latest blow to negotiations came when Mayweather was sentenced to prison for assaulting his ex-girlfriend.
I know fucking karate
