The clock is ticking for Mayweather

The clock is literally ticking for Floyd Mayweather Jr. to make up his mind and fight Manny Pacquiao.

Top Rank Inc., which promotes Pacquiao, has set up a timer on its official website that acts as a countdown for Mayweather to agree on facing Pacquiao.

The countdown timer, labeled as “’Money’ Time: Mayweather’s Decision,” has been placed on the topmost part of Top Rank’s website. As of posting time, Mayweather has one day and one hour to decide whether to face Pacquiao.

Top Rank chief Bob Arum said when the deadline lapses, he will look for other fights for Pacquiao, possibly against Antonio Margarito or a rematch with WBO junior middleweight champion Miguel Cotto in November.

Arum earlier said Pacquiao has already agreed to the terms for the Mayweather bout, adding that it is now up to the Grand Rapids, Michigan-based boxer to give his nod of approval to finalize the fight.

Negotiations for a Pacquiao-Mayweather showdown, which is expected to be the richest fight in boxing history, had been hounded by issues on blood-testing protocol, with Mayweather insisting for random, Olympic-style blood testing.
