A source close to Pacquiao stated that the deal has been agreed to the contractual terms and it was expected to sign before the tip-off the NBA All star game between Eastern Conference and the Western conference.

With full expectations of people assembled there, the American was in attendance at the Madison square garden just to declare that the agreed deal that has been doing the rounds is just a rumor. People gathered for the NBA All Star game were expecting an official announcement, which was thought to be only a matter of time, but this declaration once again left the boxing fans in the dark.

Having said that he had not signed the deal, he also mentioned that Pacquiao too hadn’t signed it. However, Mayweather is sure about the result and expects the fight to happen soon.

“That’s not true. I haven’t signed yet and he hasn’t signed yet. It’s just been speculations and rumors. But hopefully we can make the fight happen,” Mayweather told the TNT crew.

There have been many times when Pacquiao challenged the American making people trust that the Filipino wants the bout to take place more than the American. But when a face to face meeting between the champs was disclosed by Mayweather, it was understood that even Mayweather wanted to come to blows.

The Most Awaited May Weather vs. Pacquiao Fight Will Happen Soon

The most awaited May weather vs. Pacquiao Fight Will Happen soon

The long awaited and most expected May weather, Manny Pacquiao fight could just be a matter of time with both the welterweight champions showing great personal interest in the competition.

Both of them have shown great interest May weather’s intent is known via a video post over the social networking site, Instagram, while Pacquiao has stated it in an interview with Fox News.

“I’m thinking that the fight will happen,” said Pacquiao.

“So confidently within a week’s time, we can hear from them and confirm the fight…I don’t want that [the fight not to happen] when I retire boxing, and there’s a big question to the minds of the fans.”

It was quite a few weeks before where both the welterweight title holders were said to have met in a hotel to thrash out about the bout, with May weather leaking a small clip on social networking site.

The video makes clear about May weather’s seriousness about the fight, where he has said: “I congratulate him [Pacquiao] on his career.

“He had a wonderful career and I had a wonderful career, but before we leave the sport, of course we have to make this fight happen.”

Boxing fans round the globe want the fight to shape up as well.

With the intent of the boxers been disclosed clearly, it is HBO and Showtime that’s facing pressure and they seem to have been a major hindrance for the fight, nevertheless, HBO has told that they are not a hurdle to the fight.

While Pacquiao is contracted with HBO, May weather is contracted with Showtime.

Bob Arum, Pacquiao’s promoter, just a few days ago stated that both the networks have agreed to a deal, but Showtime chief Stephen Espinoza made it clear that a deal had not been completed.

More than a few media reports have asserted over the past few days or so that the private deals for the competition between the boxers have been agreed, counting a better financial share for the American in the tune of 60-40.

It is of no importance, how much HBO says that they are not an impediment, it is the network deal, which has not made the grade to see the fight happen.

The major impediment is the terms for the deferred air of the shared pay-per-view.

Despite the difference of opinion, both networks, at the same time are aware of the money that they will be making from this fight, so it is expected that the networks will come to a common agreement in the end.

IBF middleweight champion Jermain Taylor is detained on new firearm charges

The IBF middleweight champion, who earned numerous accolades throughout his amateur career Jermain Taylor’s career, is on the edge of collapse. Suffering severe injuries, he is arrested on new firearm charges and his fight with Sergio Mora next month is cancelled.

Sources say, Taylor who revived his career last year by distressing Sam Soliman to win the title was charged with five felony counts of motivated assault for allegedly discharging a gun, three felony counts of imperiling the wellbeing of a minor and one misdemeanor count of possession of a controlled substance, i.e., marijuana.

Allegedly, five times, Taylor shot the weapon pointing at his wife, children and a bystander. Marijuana was found after the arrest of the boxer.

The boxer expelled the weapon five times Monday afternoon on a little Rock street corner after pointing it at his wife, children and another passerby. After his arrest, they found him in possession of a bag with marijuana in it, police said.

Following the August 2014 incident, Taylor was already facing some issues at this home when he allegedly shot his cousin multiple times.

Low DiBella, the promoter- who faced condemnation for employing Taylor after the boxer arrival subsequent to a boxing-related brain injury- insists as of now, nothing will be taken to the next step until all legal issues are dealt with and solved.

Irrespective of what the exact matter is, this is a shocking subject; DiBella told more than his boxing career, it leads me and his management to be more concerned with his well-being and mental health.

Speculation continues with the welterweights fight…

Mayweather-Pacquiao stalemate is not good for the sport says Boxing Trainer Stephen Edwards

He opines that the talks of the fight were the most awful thing that could ever happen to boxing. The Filipino boxer and the pound for pound boxer looking for a contender in their subsequent fight, it only makes sense that they should come to blows each other. They are the clear most wanted over anyone else, moreover the top fighters in their respective divisions.

Spaced out from being one of the most respected boxing coaches, Stephen is also a journalist for the boxingtalk.com website, where a lot of interactions happens with boxing enthusiasts together with question and answer sessions.

The outlook that this matter has created is extremely absurd. Guys, who were friends, will take different turns and it will not quite come to blows. In the same discussion, Edwards expressed more aversion on how the Mayweather-Pacquiao non-fight has subjugated the boxing headlines. Mentioning Brook, Errol Spence, Amir Khan and Keith Thurman, boxing fans should welcome and appreciate upcoming fighters in the division, he adds.

Having said all that, the newest on the Floyd-Pac is nothing, but the same it was in November 2014, or years ago since 2010 or 2011 when it was initially thrashed out, when both champions overtly called out each other and that they want the super fight to take place in the start of the New Year. No deal or contract has been confirmed or settled down; however as boxing fervents continue to wait patiently for what could be the biggest fight in boxing history.
