Mayweather: I'm Ready To Sign Pacquiao Contract Today

By Chris LaBate

WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (42-0, 26KOs) is pushing harder than he's ever pushed in the past, to get WBO champ Manny Pacquiao (54-3-2, 38KOs) in the ring. Mayweather has a lock on the HBO date, May 5th, and the venue has been placed on hold - the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

After several periods of failed negotiations, and years of anticipation from fans, Mayweather wants the bout agreement in hand and he is ready to sign it immediately. But, Mayweather states that he won't sit around forever for a deal to get ironed out.  

"May 5th, I'm ready. I'm ready to sign. I'm ready to sign today. If I sign today, you [referring to Pacquiao] better sign tomorrow," Mayweather told fighthype.com.

[QUOTE=Pactar∂;11493768][B]How is there no negotiations if Floyd clearly said on twitter and his news site fhype.com, "Sign the contract"?[/B][/QUOTE] I'm just answering your boy's post. You should read his first and see what he said.
