FHM Nation, kalma! It looks like the be-all and end-all of all mega buck fights is STILL NOT HAPPENING. At least not yet.
At the NBA All-Star Game earlier today, Floyd Mayweather denied recent reports of him agreeing to a $250 million bout with Manny Pacquiao on May 2. This is a direct contradiction to a Telegraph article that revealed that the two have already agreed to terms and that Manny has signed his side of the deal.
“That's not true. I haven't signed yet. He hasn't signed yet. That’s all speculations and rumors,” Floyd pointed out to TNT analyst David Aldridge. "But I hope it will happen. We have to make it happen in May."

We know that this is incredibly frustrating, and that Floyd is starting to sound like a broken record, but he may be telling the truth this time. In fact, Showtime executive Stephen Espinoza, a key figure representing Mayweather, pretty much tweeted the same thing.
We're on your side here, Floyd. We're more than convinced that you want to make this fight happen just as much as Manny. But what the hell's stopping both of you from signing whatever it is that needs to be signed?
