The only thing we know for sure about May 2nd, 2015 is that it is a Saturday and unless the world ends that day will come. Now according to reports, May 2nd might also be remembered for being the day the biggest fight in boxing history happened as reportedly, both Floyd Mayweather & Manny Pacquiao have agreed to the fight, and actually SIGNED the contract. This would not be the first time we were all duped into thinking it is the real thing, but this report does seem to have more substance.


According to the Sporting News, the contracts are signed, the deal is done, and all that is left is the announcement itself.

Mayweather is currently in New York for NBA All-Star Weekend, and some speculate he will officially announce the match in the coming days. There’s also chatter the popular boxer could even announce it during the All-Star festivities. That would be the ultimate Mayweather move. On the other side of the spectrum, Pacquiao has signed and completed all things necessary.

Fans have felt toyed with when it comes to this fight and the constant back-and-forth of “will they or won’t they.” Pacquiao has already started training in the Philippines. Mayweather’s training isn’t too far behind.

The MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas will be the setting of the epic bout. Both fighters have ties to the venue, with Pacquiao having five of his past seven fights there, and Mayweather having his last ten. There are two other possible dates, but May 2 seems to be the favorite.

Let’s all hope this is the real thing. We will definitely hear from Floyd soon, one way or the other.
