The fight of the century between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao had hit a road black especially with the tickets for the mega fight not on sale with just around 10 days to go and Bob Arum, Pacquiao's promoter, had increasingly become frustrated.
But the issue seems to have been resolved after Arum and Top Rank President Todd duBoef met Leslie Moonves, President and Chief Executive Officer of CBS Corporation and Mayweather's adviser Al Haymon.
"We resolved all of the issues and now we're waiting for the paperwork," Yahoo quoted Arum as saying. "I said on the call that if what we agreed upon is in the paperwork we receive, we will sign it and the tickets will be released."
So with this, boxing fans around the world can heave a sigh of relief and wait for the megabout on 2 May at MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Boxing fans have been waiting for this fight for a very long time.
Both the boxers have been undergoing some serious training with their respective trainers to be in perfect shape for the bout. There is a lot of pride at stake along with the huge amounts they are going to make from the bout.
