The fight of the century between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao has been grabbing headlines ever since the announcement of the date and venue for the mega fight.

The fight, which has been scheduled for 2 May has not been able to see the light of the day, despite the personal deals between the two boxers being agreed.

Floyd Mayweather Sr, who is not only Mayweather Jr's dad, but also his trainer, is confident that the fight will take place.

"To me it makes no difference but I think the fight is going to take place," Mayweather Sr, was quoted by Hustle Boss.

The boxers are said to have met in a hotel suite, where they even discussed about the importance of the fight in one another's career, which has been a huge success.

During the recent Miami Heat vs Milwaukee Bucks NBA game in Florida, the pair met and also exchanged number during half-time, thus expressing their desire to fight in the ring on 2 May.

"Otherwise, I don't think him and Pacquiao would have took it this far, with trading numbers, you call me and I call you. To me, I'll be honest, that looks like a fight to me. It's on its way,"

Mayweather, nicknamed, 'Money' has not lost a single bout in his professional career. He has won all of his 47 bouts, 26 of them being via knock outs.

Pacquiao may not have an unbeaten record, but his win loss record of 57 to 5 does state that he is one of the best boxers of modern times. Thirty-eight of those wins have come from knock outs.

So, it is evident that all parties related to the fight want the fight to happen, though Mayweather's camp may not be as vocal as Pacquiao, who has let the world know about his interest in the fight.

He even stated that the American was afraid of him.

Fans around the world also want the fight to happen, after it failed to see the green light in 2010 as well. 

It was a 50-50 financial split then, but this time around, it is 60-40 in favour of the American now.

Nobody wants the deal to break down once again, after all the hype that has been created of late.
