Speculation that the richest fight in boxing history is close to being made has been rife since the Pacman put on an impressive performance to defeat Chris Algieri in Macau two weeks ago.

Now Mayweather, put under pressure by one of his promotion companies’ events, said: ‘Will I fight Pacquiao? Absolutely.’

Mayweather has called for the negotiations for the Pacquiao fight to start, and has warned Pacquaio that he will not make anywhere near the amount of money that he will make for the fight. Mayweather’s reasoning for not giving Pacquiao a 50-50 split is because he’s undefeated, and Pacquiao is not.
