The proposed super fight between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather is getting closer.

Mayweather agreed to terms for the welterweight title bout on Tuesday, multiple sources with knowledge of the negotiations told ESPN.com.

The proposed date is March 13, although there is a chance it could move to May 1, sources said. Mayweather, according to a source close to him, is OK with either date.

Pacquiao and Mayweather have fought recent bouts at catch weights. However if they complete their deal, the bout would be contested at 147 pounds, the maximum for a welterweight fight, a source said.

Top Rank's Bob Arum, who promotes Pacquiao (50-3-2, 38 KOs), was flying to the Philippines on Tuesday night to meet with Pacquiao and try to close his side of the deal.

Arum spent much of Tuesday getting open issues resolved in his negotiations with Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer, who represents Mayweather, sources said. Once Arum was able to do that, he left for the Philippines and is expected back on Monday.

If the HBO PPV fight happens on March 13, it would force the tentative HBO PPV fight between light heavyweights Roy Jones Jr. and Bernard Hopkins to move to another date. Hopkins and Jones both fight Wednesday and must win for their fight to go through.

Does March being too soon for you guys have anything at all to do with wanting Manny to get a lot more time to prepare?

Ah, thought so. I want Pacquiao to win big time as well, but not enough to the extent of wanting him to get more preparation time so I (the viewer) have to wait a longer time to see it.

4 months in between fights is too little time. I want both fighters in top physical form and shape, so there
will be no excuses when one of them wins.

I took this analysis lightly, but then I watched more Mayweather fights on YouTube, and this guy is exactly on
point. It's a long watch, but a worthwhile watch if you're interested in boxing analysis and technique.

Really want it to happen in March but Unlabeled is right & any boxing fan would want both of these fighters at 100% with no excuses. May would be here before we know it.
That poster has an old school look to it, pretty cool.

Mayweather/Pacquiao fight now in danger of not happening, due to Pacquiao's bid for Congress in May. Fight IS NOT official.

There’s only one fight Manny Pacquiao is looking at right now, and that’s the one in the political arena. So, unless Bob Arum offers him the moon, Pacquiao is no longer inclined to fight in March or May as earlier expected.

Pacquiao’s lawyer, Franklin Gacal, yesterday told The STAR that the reigning pound-for-pound champion has come to a decision the other night that his next fight will come after the May 10 elections.

“As of last night, Manny said he doesn’t want to fight in April or even May. There will be no fight. Maybe it will come after the elections,” said Gacal.

I don't mind if the fight is after May, I just want the fight to happen!
