After more than five years of uncertainty, we can now finally say that the dream match between Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao and Floyd "Money" Mayweather Jr. is on!
"This will be the biggest event in the history of the sport. Boxing fans and sports fans around the world will witness greatness on May 2. I am the best ever and this fight will be another opportunity to showcase my skills and do what I do best, which is win. Manny is going to try to do what 47 before him failed to do, but he won't be successful. He will be number 48."
“Floyd should enjoy being the A-side while he can because on May 2 Manny is going to put him on his backside."
"I am very happy that Floyd Mayweather and I can give the fans the fight they have wanted for so many years. They have waited long enough and they deserve it."
Pacquiao reportedly agreed to take home the smaller part of the 60-40 split in order to make the fight finally happen.
It doesn't matter to me who gets how much. What matters is the fight is finally going to happen. This is the chance for Mayweather to put a stop to those "chicken" jeers.
