Manny Pacquiao is not letting up; he knows time is dwindling to get a fight with Floyd Mayweather and he’s going hard to get it.  Yesterday before the clock struck 12:00 to declare the New Year, Pacquiao issued another public challenge to Mayweather, pushing the undefeated boxer to get in the ring with him and make “history”.

I’m sure you’re aware of the numerous requests Pacquiao has sent Mayweather’s way so I won’t recap them all for you.  Pacquiao (57-5-2, 38 KOs), who’s 36-years old, has been way more vocal in recent months about his desire to make what would easily be the richest fight in boxing history, and on Wednesday he tweeted to Mayweather (47-0, 26 KOs) and 37-years old, yet again, saying it was time for the two all-time greats, both in the twilight of their careers, to get together and make the fight.

For it to happen, CBS/Showtime, which has Mayweather under contract, and Time Warner/HBO, which has Pacquiao under contract, likely would have to come together for a joint pay-per-view broadcast. They did it once before, in 2002, for another long-anticipated fight between HBO’s then-heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis and Showtime’s Mike Tyson. Both were near the end of their careers, and the fight became was the highest-grossing fight in boxing history at the time.

Even if Arum and Moonves can come to an agreement on the parameters of a deal — and the Pacquiao side is clear that it is willing to accept less than 50 percent of the money — Moonves still has to persuade Mayweather to make a deal.
