Pacquiao agrees to fight Mayweather
Pacquiao and Top Rank, his promoter, have agreed to terms for a May 2 bout, Top Rank vice president Carl Moretti told ESPN.com on Tuesday night, although Mayweather has not yet agreed to terms and it remains to be seen if he will.
“Top Rank and Manny have agreed to the terms on our side. I don’t know about the other side,” Moretti said.
Nobody from Mayweather’s camp could be reached for comment. Yahoo! Sports initially reported the development.
Top Rank chairman Bob Arum has been negotiating the bout for the past couple of months through Leslie Moonves, the president and CEO of CBS, which has two fights left on a six-fight contract CBS and subsidiary network Showtime signed Mayweather to in early 2013. Moonves, according to Arum, has been acting as a go-between in trying to hammer out Mayweather’s end of the deal with adviser Al Haymon.
