Mayweather vs Pacquiao Fight might not happen after all

Stay updated of the latest news and updates for the Mayweather vs Pacquiao Fight

The all time awaited fight between Mayweather vs Pacquiao might never happen even with the scheduled November 2010 fight according to Bob Arum. But sadly, no matter what negotiations will come, if Mayweather never wanted it at the first place and all he did was stir up controversies regarding the fight, it wont ever happen.

Both sides have differences and i think they failed to settle and agree to push the fight through although I have thought that this is all because of Mayweather.

But nevertheless, Pacquiao will still be fighting but not Mayweather. The Pacquiao vs Mayweather is too far from happening and all of us are already tired of these talks, well maybe it wont be happening after all, but we still keep our hopes up.

One thing that is pretty much obvious why this Pacquiao vs Mayweather fight wont happen is because Mayweather doesnt want to lose, as what i have observed, Mayweather is a picky fighter who doesnt want to fight that puts him in danger of his no loss streak. Both didnt come to an agreement and the hopes of putting up one of the most awaited fight and up to $40 million worth of revenue goes down the drain.

According to Arum, He always knew Mayweather didnt want the fight because he didnt want to lose.

Crucial talks for Mayweather vs Pacquiao

A very controversial fight between Mayweather vs Pacquiao has gotten to a hault when Mayweather demanded for an olympic-style drug testing and Pacquiao refused to give in to the demands of Mayweather. According to reports, Bob Arum, the founder of Top Rank promotions and who is currently handling the negotiations for the Mayweather vs Pacquiao fight that will likely to happen on November 2010 is already doing the talks to make this fight happen, it's a very crucial time, it may make or break the Mayweather vs Pacquiao fight if things go smooth or bad especially when talking about the Money. We are expecting that Mayweather gets the bigger share but he can't generate another large sum if he won't fight Pacquiao.

Bob Arum also told the camp of Pacquiao to stop any talks about the fight with Mayweather and let him do the talking. It might jeopardize the negotiations if ever any talks about the fight will leak from Pacquiao's camp. Even Manny Pacquiao's coach, Freddie Roach is staying out of the issue. But if ever the Mayweather vs Pacquiao fight won't push through, according to Roach, there would definitely a fighter who's going to fight Pacquiao on November.

Mayweather vs Pacquiao - who wants the bigger share of the money?

There is only one thing in common in Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather - Money. The attention and controversy these two fighters have is much beyond my expectation. Floyd Mayweather's plan on Manny Pacquiao to take the Olympic Style drug testing, and that Pacquiao refuses to take it because of physical issues when it comes to the ring. But we've heard enough of the drug testing issue, let's talk about the other side of many sides in this Mayweather vs Pacquiao fight. The splitting of the money is very crucial for both camps, both want to have the bigger share of the meat. It seems to be a financial issue for this Mayweather vs Pacquiao fight to break or to happen.

Let's analyze and observe if who of both fighters must have a bigger share. Let's compare if who also has the higher revenue generating fighter. A difference of even at least 1 percent can mean something, if the expected revenue can go up to $60 million then its around $600k for just 1%.

If we compare the number of PPV viewers from Mayweather to Pacquiao, undoubtedly Mayweather Jr. can generate more money than Manny Pacquiao. Mayweather has his numbers on PPV however its not really an accurate source. While Pacquiao in his last fight didnt get much attention since he was fighting a bit boring fight and didnt really pleased the fans.

As expected, Mayweather wants the bigger share of the purse but this can only happen and generate a great revenue only if he fights Pacquiao. On the other hand, Pacquiao wants a 50-50 split but it can never be denied that Mayweather will use this as an excuse of the bigger share to avoid another fight with Pacquiao. Although negotiations are already on the process, it may take some time before both camps can agree and decide on a Mayweather vs Pacquiao fight.

Negotiations on Mayweather vs Pacquiao November 2010

A Mayweather vs Pacquiao fight is going to push through according to Bob Arum and it will happen some time in November 2010. If this will go smoothly it will be one of the biggest fights in boxing history and prove who really is the pound for pound champion. Also according to other sources, it may be Pacquiao's last fight


Bob Arum of Top Rank, and one of the most successful promoters in boxing believes that a Mayweather vs Pacquiao Fight will happen on November and it could be one of the biggest fights in boxing.

Negotiations will start after the elections since Manny is running for congress and now that the National elections is done and Manny has his position for public office the negotiations will start and Arum must do his best in order for this fight to push through and avoid being cancelled as what happened previously.

According to Arum, he never really thought that this kind of situation will happen, whenever he goes to the Philippines or in US, he always is confronted with "When is Manny going to fight Mayweather?" questions.

Arum thinks that this fight has gotten really overwhelming and the people are getting demanding on a Mayweather vs Pacquiao fight, they really want this fight to happen.

After the Mayweather vs Mosley and Pacquiao vs Clottey which everyone thinks its a one sided fight and there wasnt enough action, a Pacquiao vs Mayweather should happen and everyone wants it. If money was the issue, i think it will generate more than their previous fights.

The overwhelming and excitement of fight and sports fans is really high and want it to happen. I really think Manny Pacquiao wants this fight but a chance has slipped since he didnt want Mayweather dictating him on what should happen before the fight, Manny already said that he is ready to face Mayweather anytime and many think that Floyd Mayweather is just making the blood testing an excuse to avoid Manny Pacquiao. Arum have doubts on whether Mayweather wants this fight or not. Floyd Mayweather has been fighting fighters that aren't really competitive for him and everybody is noticing that.

Although according to Bob Arum of Top Rank, he won't give a public announcement just yet while he hasn't discussed anything with Manny Pacquiao but is confident that a Mayweather vs Pacquiao will happen some time in November 2010.

I hope everything will go smoothly and that both camps would agree and make this fight possible. November would be a good time for the fight since it will be after the baseball season and before the football playoffs. It would be the perfect date for Pacquiao vs Mayweather.

Obviously everybody wants this fight to unfold and we don't want it cancelled the second time around but it would be very unfortunate if this one big mega fight won't happen.

Mayweather vs Pacquiao is going to happen - Roach

A lot of us are craving for a boxing megafight between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather and finally be able to show who really is the pound for pound champion of the world.

According to Freddie Roach the fight will happen and is going to happen. Roach confirmed that Pacquiao and Floyd are gonna come to terms and make the blood test after the fight.

There is no definite schedule for the fight yet but hopefully late this year. Bob Arum will be flying to the Philippines as soon as possible to make an offer to Manny Pacquiao and make sure this will work on both sides.

The fight was supposed to happen last March 13, 2010 but due to both parties that haven't come to an agreement because of the blood testing the fight was cancelled.

Because the fight between Manny Pacquiao vs Floyd Mayweather did not push through, instead it was a Pacquiao vs Clottey fight and then after that was the Mayweather vs Mosley.

Roach's prediction is that Manny Pacquiao will wipe off Mayweather. Although Roach is not denying the fact that Mayweather is a very good fighter.

A Pacquiao vs Mayweather Fight should happen

Pacquiao previously agreed to fight Mayweather with certain conditions, he would be happy to fight Mayweather and vice versa as long as Pacquiao agrees to take the test. Now that the Mayweather vs Mosley fight is over, if Pacquiao still refuses to take the blood test then it would be pretty obvious that he is the one dodging Mayweather and not the other way around.

We all want a Pacquiao vs Mayweather fight and I hope they will come to an agreement and prove who really is the pound for pound champion. I think this fight will really push through, there would be no excuses and reasons for this fight not to happen.
