The Filipino boxer’s management says fight is a “long way” off

Boxing fans hoping to see the fight of the century between eight-division world champion Manny Pacquiao and unbeaten Floyd Mayweather will have to keep waiting.

On Wednesday, Pacman’s publicist Fred Sternburg quelled rumors that Pacman had agreed to Mayweather’s terms for a potential showdown in early May 2015 this week, despite that being widely reported in the media.

“There is still a long way to go,” Sternburg told the BBC. But, he conceded that “the movement has been in a positive direction.”

The potential matchup between arguably two of the greatest welterweights to have ever laced up gloves has been stalled for the better part of eight years because of management feuds, contract disputes and disagreements over drug testing schemes.
