Manny Pacquiao

48 Hours to Decide

If He'll Fight Floyd

1/11/2012 9:46 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Manny Pacquiao could decide today or tomorrow whether he will fight Floyd Mayweather Jr. on May 5th -- this according to Manny's trainer.

Freddie Roach just told TMZ Manny and promoter Bob Arum are in the Philippines, figuring out if they can put off several deals to fight other boxers ... to clear the decks for a Mayweather fight in May.

Roach is scoffing at Mayweather's tweet, in which he calls Pacquiao a "punk," saying, "He should look in the mirror. He's been ducking us for 2 years."

As for what weight class Pacquiao will fight Mayweather ... Roach said 147 lbs -- that's the upper limit of welterweight.

Of course, even if Pacquiao can rearrange his schedule, both sides have to agree on a financial deal. Roach says, "We'll do it on even terms."

i hope they DON'T fight. of course, if they do, i will definitely check in, but i'm hoping that mayweather loses a whole year of fights/income for dodging pacquiao for so many years and talking like he's the greatest while delivering boring-ass fights.

I love how roach says he has been ducking when both sides need to stfu about ducking cause they BOTH have done enough. If this fight doesn't happen it will be because arum is scared or floyd backs out after TR agrees. I don't see how anyone can be confident in a pac win here. After that JMM3 performance, I'd be surprised if pac wins more than 3 rounds. bigger, faster, more precise, and better defensively is mayweather. I love pac but this one is gonna be challenging and a KO or TKO for pac is a laughable prediction. dont be a pactard people

The only prob I have with may weather is the corny pics he continues to put up with 50 cent. Being confident is cool but he is doing too much now # not attractive

floyd is the g.o.a.t you people are stupid and know nothing about boxing I can tell by the stupid comments being made. Floyd will out box manny and thats why they dont want the fight to happen they never though floyd would call them out and he did.
