It’s the fight boxing fans have been waiting for: Pacquaio vs Mayweather. According to Yahoo Sports, promoter Bob Arum confirmed that Manny Pacquaio agreed to fight Floyd Mayweather on May 2nd. Mayweather hasn’t confirmed the agreement quite yet, but this is expected to bring in a lot of coins. The fight is set to take place at the MGM in Las Vegas and bring in an estimated 40 million from ticket sales.  Arum didn’t want to get too much into details, but said

“I think Manny has been very reasonable and demonstrated that he wants the fight to happen. Now, we’re waiting on Floyd. That’s not to say that Floyd has been obstinate, that Floyd won’t do it, but we’re waiting on him.”
