Mayweather still has to confirm the May 2 match
Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao tweeted Tuesday that it’ll be easy to defeat the undefeated Floyd Mayweather, whenever their legendary match actually gets the green light.
Pacquiao didn’t stop there: while he has agreed to the match’s terms, there’s still no word from Mayweather. But Pacquiao wasn’t afraid to call out his silence.
The real delay, though, is the negotiation between Showtime, which broadcasts Mayweather fights, and HBO, which claims the rights to Pacquiao’s matches, on how they’d broadcast the event.
Pacquiao has previously expressed his hope for the match, which would occur on May 2, telling the Los Angeles Times on Monday, “We just want to make that fight happen — for the sake of the fans, for the sake of millions of people around the world who are excited to see that fight. We have a deadline … this month.”
