Manny Pacquiao To Visit Mayweather Jr. In United States

pac04Like an avalanche, the possibility of a Manny Pacquiao vs. Floyd Mayweather Jr. fight in the near future is starting to swallow people whole.

After Pacquiao secured a solid victory over Brandon Rios, Manny Pacquiao fans began chanting an ever ancient, never forgotten mantra of a showdown between Floyd and Manny. Not only was this idea elevated by Pacquiao’s performance, but it was also fed by certain, barely relevant and indirect statements by Top Rank’s Bob Arum, and lately by Mayweather J. himself.

Now, it seems that Pacman is joining in, by suggesting that on his next visit to United States, he intends on meeting with Team Mayweather and discussing the potentiality of the fight.

“We have to talk first. If we can come to an agreement, then we’ll talk about the fight. We still don’t know, but there’s a chance,”said Pacquiao in a recent interview.

Contacting Mayweather Jr. in person in order to try and reignite the negotiations is a tremendous step in the right direction, and it’s a positive thing having Pacquiao initiate the talks.

Will he indeed go and visit Floyd? I think that based on his recently reported money woes, the likelihood of that happening is higher than ever before. There is only one thing that can stand in the way of their meeting very soon: Manny Pacquiao not having a visa to enter the United States.
