“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.
