US-based media outfit TMZ Sports caught up with the Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao who is in New York City for a meeting with executives of American cable network HBO where his team is reportedly finalizing discussions for a megabuck duel with Mayweather.
TMZ asked Pacquiao if he had any message for brash American rival Floyd Mayweather.
And Pacquiao’s message was short and simple: “Sign the contract.”
Pacquiao has reportedly agreed to terms of the fight according to Top Rank chief Bob Arum, leaving the ball in Mayweather’s court. HBO and Showtime, which has an exclusive deal with Mayweather, have reportedly met as well to discuss a deal to bring the fight to pay-per-view.
