The WBC sent out this release on Tuesday, signaling their desire that The Superfight us fight fans have craved for four years now finally get made. Check it out…

FLOYD MAYWEATHER VS. MANNY PACQUIAO

After Floyd Mayweather clearly defeated Marcos Maidana in their much anticipated rematch, there have been countless news stories, articles and statements in the press regarding the fight that has been in the makings for several years. Clearly and simply – the world wants to see Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao.

Mayweather, the WBC Welterweight and Superwelterweight champion of the world, has been the pound-for-pound driving force of the sport in recent years, while Pacquiao is an iconic champion who has reestablished the interest of the boxing world after his dramatic loss in his fourth fight with Juan Manuel Marquez.

The WBC has been extremely supportive, and in fact ranked Pacquiao as number one contender in the welterweight division after his comeback victory against Brandon Rios.

With this ranking in the month of December, 2013, Pacquiao was in line to have the fight against Mayweather, but unfortunately his plans were different and he challenged Timothy Bradley, conquering the WBO championship.

The WBC hereby ratifies complete support and commends Mayweather and Pacquiao to sit down and make the fight happen, if Pacquiao successfully wins his upcoming fight against Chris Algieri.

Both Mayweather and Pacquiao have great history in the WBC and without a doubt their fight would be one of the biggest events in the history of boxing and our sport.

Good for the sanctioning body. Soon mayweather will say he doesn't need any belts. Floyd and tsAH still have Khan, Spadafora , or Berto to exploit before he says pac's name.


-Skibbz :

Great to hear from Suleiman, have Haymon and Mayweather trodden on too many toes? Either way we know nothing irks Floyd more than being questioned or having mentioned a Mayweather Pacman fight. The more people do it the better, the know it's the juiciest Floyd has on the table, in terms of glory and $$$, so whichever road he is inclined towards most will still lead him to Pac.. Or so that's how my simple logic sees it!


-oubobcat :

Of course they do and I am sure they want to sanction the fight as well. Probably at both Welterweight and Jr. Middleweight. Heck even throw in a Silver title at Middleweight. They see a lot of money in the fight and a lot of money to be made in sanctioning fees.


-Radam G :

Oh, YUP! The WBC want that up to $6mil sanctioning fee. Wow! It would be richest s fee for the richest pug gitdown [$??] ever. Holla!

Pac has sharp words for Floyd: .@FloydMayweather's testimony to the commission on All Access' authenticity tells me everything I need to know about his desire to fight me. ? Manny Pacquiao (@MannyPacquiao) September 24, 2014 The Showtime people are saying Floyd is lying to the commission. How soon before the heads of CBS pull Espinoza into the room and say ,someone has to go because of this mess, don't let the door hit you on the way out.

Lol. ...Deep....These guys are starting to exhibit a fondness for each other.... Floyd has posted numerous outrages pics of Paq on facebook. Floyd has been posting selfies of himself from the Eiffel Tower in France all day while engaging in copious shopping sprees dipicting the distribution of obscene amounts of money in the fair city of Paris. Paq has been fighting back attempting to ridicule Floyd about All Access. Will they continue this fight into the ring?? One can only hope!!!!! please please. Regarding Espinoza... Don't know why he should be job hunting but if this is the case he's just another victim of the recent beheadings taking place in top management positions within the last couple of years. They have a closet full of suits ready to take his place if needed. Nothing surprises me in this business. I just watch the fighters.
