Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The fight many boxing fans have been waiting for could soon become a reality.
Undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather says he is ready to give the fans the fight that many believe would never come to pass.
Mayweather (47-0, 26 KOs) told SHOWTIME on Friday the long waited fight against Manny Pacquiao (57-5-2, 38 KOs) could happen in just a few months.
"Absolutely, I would love to fight Manny Pacquiao, we're trying to make the fight happen. Years ago we had problems with random blood and urine testing. I just want to have an even playing field," said Mayweather.
"Now he's in a very, very tight situation with his loss to (Juan Manuel) Marquez and his loss to (Timothy) Bradley. His pay-per-view numbers are extremely low, so he's desperate. I've wanted that fight a long time ago."
Many have speculated over the years that Mayweather has been dodging a fight between him and Pacquiao, out of fear of a loss. Mayweather says that is not the case.
"Manny Pacquiao, Bob Arum, you guys have been ducking us for years. We're tired of you guys fooling the public, fooling the critics. Before we tried to make the fight happen and you guys didn't want to take random blood and urine testing. So that's why the fight didn't happen. Then I offered you $40 million and you didn't want to make the fight happen. Then you lost twice and now you're coming back begging for the same money. That's not going to happen. Let's make this fight for the people, for the fans. Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao May 2, Cinco de Mayweather," said Mayweather.
So far, Pacquiao has yet to respond.
