Sorry mods for posting this on new thread.

The proposed super-fight between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather is getting closer.

Mayweather agreed to terms for the welterweight title bout on Tuesday, multiple sources with knowledge of the negotiations told spam.com.



Well there you have it! Once again the ball is in Manny Pacman's court!

Manny knows he will lose the fight badly which is why he is loathe to have it take place before the Filipino Elections. Smart move but nevertheless the TRUTH remains: Floyd stands ready for Manny!

What say you Pactards??   Wink

keegan if pacman aint elite i dunno who is Roll Eyes

Sorry about that guevara, please read above post , the one i sent to style doctor. Elite to me is being able to beat any style that is thrown in front of you and until this day i dont know if pacman can deal with a very good pure boxer that defends very well and counters all day.

Dont get me wrong , i enjoy watching pacman go to work and how he just dismantles his opponents but again i guess im just being stubborn for not calling him elite but to me that word is meant for the best of the best .

Hear Hear!! CC for that one!  Manny is simply not of the same class that Floyd Mayweather is!

Manny may be exciting, but Floyd is just brilliant!

Once this fight happens you will all see exactly what I mean.

Rather intriguingly Thomas Cook have nothing showing on flights for either of those dates but hols showing for the weeks before and after - they're clearly hedging their bets to make the most out of the sports packages!

Not that I'm pricing it up....

I miss the whistling smiley.

I'll ask a girl I know at Thomas Cook.. I checked 10th to 17th March, and also 17th to 24th, nothing for both, weird how there was nothing for 17th to 24th?

If they're withholding flights until they know a date then that's ridiculous, no airline does that!

Then again that website is hopeless!

Reports have it that Arums in town and will have a meeting with Manny today. 
Frankly the press has not gotten to Arum yet, which is definitely a good sign.  Keeping my fingers crossed.

Yo brotha.
My take on Floyd vs Manny is that Manny will be facing a Bigger Version of Marquez who has a 3 inch reach advantage,much better reflex/defence,quicker jab,faster feet and most Importantly a much more accurate Right hand.
None of his past 3 opponents had a right hand.
But still I will give Mnany all Credit in the World for the way he dismantled Cotto,Ricky and Oscar.
But Mayweather is so unlike any of them.
Manny has finally met his match and stylewise Its gona be a very bad fight for him.His team know it and that's why he won't Rush to sign the Contract,until at least after the Elections.

I totally agree your comparison of Floyd to JMM.  Styles indeed makes fights  Smiley 

That said pointing to the elections as something that Manny has gone into so as not to rush the signing of the fight is a bit off in my view.  Mannys ambitions isnt exactly a big secret.  In the same manner that I think a long layoff wouldnt help him either.

Hopefully by tom will have new updates on this drama from Bob Arum himself Grin

I still can't see March the 13th happening, it all seems so soon and rushed. Having said that the election throws a slight spanner in the works for May and October seems to far off.

I don't know what I want  Huh? Huh? Huh?

The positive at least is that it does seem the fight will be made.

The more I think about this, the more I think maybe Floyd's being pretty cute here.  Seeing if Manny fancies fighting BEFORE his precious electioneering, by which time he may have been beaten.  Frankly, I don't think a loss to Mayweather would be that much of a setback to Pacman in boxing terms, but I wonder what it would do to his political aspirations?  Maybe PBF is sat with a sly smile on his face?  I can just see that
