    Report: Pacquiao-Mayweather all set

    Floyd Mayweather has agreed to fight Manny Pacquiao, according to a TMZ Sports report on Friday night.
    The two sides had been trying to hammer out a deal for a while to square off at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on May 2, the report states. Pacquiao agreed to his contract weeks ago and Mayweather signed on after a meeting at a Miami Heat game earlier this week.
    A formal announcement will be made in the coming days, TMZ Sports said.
    The news comes after promoter Barb Arum said Friday afternoon that he expected a fight between the two to be set in the next few days.
    Arum told the New York Post on Friday that there is no deal yet, but the two sides are working toward an agreement on a bout that would be the most lucrative in boxing history.
    Not only did Pacquiao and Mayweather meet in private on Tuesday in Miami, but they were also seen talking at halftime of the Heat-Milwaukee Bucks game Tuesday night.
    "I think it helped a lot because we were all putting papers together, and there was still a question as to whether Floyd really wanted to do the fight or not," Arum told the Post. "Based on the meeting with Pacquiao in the hotel suite, Manny and (Pacquiao adviser) Michael Koncz were convinced Floyd absolutely wants to do the fight."
    One of the sticking points in negotiations is the contract that Pacquiao has with Time Warner/HBO and Mayweather with CBS/Showtime. A joint pay-per-view telecast needs to be worked out.
    "Everybody is doing the right thing," Arum said. "We're looking to complete the paperwork. Everything is moving in the right direction. Hopefully, the next couple of days it will get done."
    The 36-year-old Pacquiao is 57-5-2 with 38 knockouts. Mayweather, 37, has a 47-0 record with 26 knockouts.
    Attempts through the years to negotiate a showdown between the two fighters have fallen though, but it appears the much anticipated showdown will, in fact, happen.

    This kind of feels like the announcement of Leonard-Hearns Two without Leonard-Hearns One ever happening. Just like Leonard-Hearns Two, I'll still pay to see it. I'm going with Mayweather.

    Report: Mayweather-Pacquiao deal not sealed

    [​IMG] © Issac Baldizon, NBAE/Getty Images Boxers Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. talk before the game between the Milwaukee Bucks and Miami Heat on January 27, 2015 at American Airlines Arena in Miami, Florida.
    Days after boxing legends Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao appeared set to finalize a fight, ESPN.com reported Monday that talks are stalled.
    The two camps were attempting to square away a deal for a May 2 bout at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Pacquiao agreed to his contract weeks ago, and reports last week indicated that Mayweather was on board, too.
    According to the report, the issue is not television, even though Pacquiao is under contract with Time Warner/HBO and Mayweather is signed with CBS/Showtime.
    "The thing that really concerns me is that we are running out of time for May 2," Bob Arum, Pacquiao's promoter, told ESPN.com. "If you want to drag this out a little longer, then move the fight to later in May -- May 30 is a good date -- or go in June. We agreed to go on May 2 because that is the date Mayweather is hung up on, but if we're going to go on May 2, we need to get this done. ...
    "There are issues that should be solved in 10 minutes, but it's a slow dance. We send one draft to their side and their lawyer sends back a draft with something else that's an issue. And there doesn't seem to be any urgency about it on their side. It's terrible."
    Pacquiao and Mayweather reportedly met in private on Jan. 27 in Miami, and they also were seen talking at halftime of the Miami Heat-Milwaukee Bucks game that night.
    HBO issued a statement Monday that read, "We are not an impediment to this fight. We stand ready to go. The principals need to agree to terms and come to a deal."
    Pacquiao, 36, is 57-5-2 with 38 knockouts. Mayweather, 37, has a 47-0 record with 26 knockouts. Attempts through the years to negotiate a showdown between the two fighters fell through.

    Report: Floyd Mayweather, Manny Pacquiao agree to $250 million Las Vegas fight

    The deal is reportedly done. The biggest fight in boxing history is expected to take place May 2.
    According to The Telegraph, Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao have finally come to terms in what will be the richest match-up in boxing history.

    Mayweather is currently in New York for NBA All-Star Weekend, and some speculate he will officially announce the match in the coming days. There's also chatter the popular boxer could even announce it during the All-Star festivities. That would be the ultimate Mayweather move. On the other side of the spectrum, Pacquiao has signed and completed all things necessary.
    "Manny has 100 percent signed his side of the deal," a source told Telegraph Sport. "It is now over to Mayweather to close deal and announce the fight."
    Fans have felt toyed with when it comes to this fight and the constant back-and-forth of "will they or won't they." Pacquiao has already started training in the Philippines. Mayweather's training isn't too far behind.
    The MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas will be the setting of the epic bout. Both fighters have ties to the venue, with Pacquiao having five of his past seven fights there, and Mayweather having his last ten. There are two other possible dates, but May 2 seems to be the favorite.
    The revenue breakdown for each fighter is almost evenly split with Mayweather receiving 60 percent to Pacquiao's 40. Mayweather's legacy will take a big hit if he loses and tarnishes his unbeaten record of 47 wins.
    No matter what, the two fighters are finally giving fans what they have been craving for years.

    Maybe this time?
