Mayweather must confirm fight until this month

Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao has given Floyd Mayweather until the end of the month to confirm that the unbeaten American will fight him on May 2.

Pacquiao says he and promoters Top Rank have agreed to terms that include giving Mayweather a 60 percent cut of the proceeds in a megafight, including issues such as the gloves to be used and a drug testing protocol. Pacquiao added that the deadline is necessary so that his team can choose another opponent if Mayweather refuses to sign the May 2 Las Vegas fight.

Mayweather (47-0, 26 knockouts) and eight-division world champion Pacquiao (57-5-2, 38 knockouts) are two of the greatest boxers of their generation and experts believed that the fight would be a mega hit that will shatter all box-office and television revenue records.
