Filipino boxing icon Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao (57-5-2, 38 KO’s) was with his constituent on Thursday. The fighting congressman of Sarangani gave educational financial assistance to 345 students. After the cash assistance distribution, ABS-CBN‘s Jay Dayupan ask Pacquiao, in an interview, regarding the chance of the much awaited mega fight between him and undefeated American Floyd Mayweather Jr. Pacquiao’s short answer: “Positive!”
“When will be the announcement sir, this February or March?” asked Dayupan in Filipino. “Within in this week” says Pacquiao.
The report also confirmed that Mayweather Jr. (47-0, 26 KO’s) called Pacquiao on February 9, but Pacquiao said no details about the conversation.
So, it seemed that Mayweather took initiative to dial the phone number that Pacquiao gave him during their chance met-up on Heat-Bucks basketball in Miami. Pacquiao and Mayweather exchanged phone numbers mid-court during the game’s halftime.
With the above being said, do you think the much anticipated fight, almost six years in the making, will finally happen?
