World Champion in five weight categories Floyd Mayweather is ready to fight WBO Welterweight Champion Manny Pacquiao next May. The leader of the Pound for Pound rating called on the Filipino boxer to start the negotiations about the fight and its financial conditions. Mayweather, however, believes Pacquiao should not even think about getting anywhere near the purse he himself would earn. According to mass media, this fight is likely to gross at least US $250 mn and Mayweathers purse alone would be around US $150 mn.
