It's over people, this fight is not giong to happen. Now nobody can say Manny doesn't want to agree to the tests, etc... It's Mayweather's fault the fight won't happen.

Although there are reports about Floyd Mayweather Jr. asking for a bigger share of revenues in a fight with Manny Pacquiao, the camp of the outspoken boxer has relatively been silent since the Filipino agreed to have himself blood tested 14 days before their possible bout.

Unlike in the past when the Mayweathers were practically non-stop in issuing statements to reporters, the camp of the former pound-for-pound king has been mum about a possible fight with the 7-division and reigning World Boxing Organization (WBO) welterweight champion.


“Nothing,” Top Rank promoter Bob Arum told The Sweet Science boxing website, when asked about developments on a possible Pacquiao-Mayweather fight.


"Haven't heard a word. The ball is completely in Mayweather's court. Every term has been agreed to," he added.


Pacquiao, recently elected as congressman of Sarangani province, has already softened his stand on Mayweather’s demand that he undergo a blood test 14 days before the fight, clearing an obstacle to talks for their much-awaited bout.

Default Only time will tell if this fight comes off

People are so damn impatient these days. So because Floyd didn't immediately jump on top of a car screaming "bring it on!" after Manny oked the 14 day blood test, this somehow means that Floyd is at fault for the fight not becoming reality? Negotiations appear to be progressing towards a fight if I'm not mistaken since this hurdle has been cleared.

Get control of yourself for God's sake and let the details continue to be worked out in private.

First of all:

UPDATE ON LAWSUIT FILED AGAINST WWE AND BOXER FLOYD MAYWEATHER JR. | PWInsider.com

In summary, he's being sued over his WWE theme music. Can't be going in the ring while this is going on. His production team is also named in the lawsuit.


Second of all:

Ricky Hatton would fight Floyd Mayweather Jr. in a comeback bid - Bad Left Hook

In summary, Hatton is embarrassed and wants a rematch. I wouldn't be surprised if the team is considering it just to make Pacman wait even longer.

Also, as was said, they're not just going to jump on it in any case. If the fight's going to happen I figure November, October at the earliest at this point.

Floyd Mayweather has responded to Manny Pacquiao. He is going to take a couple years from boxing. This is Mayweather's way of saying " No, I don't want to fight him" I guess he realized the risks he would be taking by fighting Manny-- this guy's a beast. Even Floyd Mayweather Sr. said it wouldn't be a good idea for his son to fight him. Manny Pacquiao remains P4P best.

I think this is what he's referring to:

Floyd dodging Manny? Mayweather eyes 2-yr break | ABS-CBN News Online Beta

Not clear as to whether or not he's talking after a fight with Manny or scrapping the idea altogether. He'd be a total fool to opt for a two year layoff and avoid a fight with Manny in November. I do think Floyd will take the fight, he's not stupid. He knows if he doesn't he'll lose face big time, and every sportswriter and fan will eat him alive.
