Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s Camp Denies Megafight With Pacquiao Is In The Works

Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s adviser, Leonard Ellerbe, reportedly said that Top Rank chief executive officer Bob Arum “is not interested in pursuing a fight between Mayweather and Pacquiao at this time.”

A report from ESPN’s Dan Rafael said Top Rank Promotions is not keen on negotiating with Golden Boy Promotions relative to the possible staging of the most-anticipated megabout between Filipino champ Manny Pacquiao and undefeated American boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Earlier reports said Mayweather’s camp is open for a May 5 match, but it would be impossible as Arum planned to talk with Team Marquez for the fourth match with Pacquiao while the latter also expressed willingness to have a rematch with the Mexican fighter.

Freddie Roach, Pacquiao’s trainer, meanwhile, admitted that Marquez deserves a rematch before the Filipino champ faces Mayweather for pound-for-pound supremacy.

If the Pacquiao-Mayweather match happens, sources say both fighters would probably take a whopping $50 million purse each.
