On Sunday night one of boxing's legendary media figures Larry Merchant made an innuendo that a bout between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao may be close to being finalized.
While appearing on The Boxing Truth Radio, Merchant made the following statement regarding the proposed fight:
"Yes, I do believe it is going to happen in November. What exclusively I have heard, I cannot reveal entirely, but I think most of the issues have been resolved. It does not mean they won't find something else."
Merchant's long time status as an HBO Boxing on-air analyst gives him access to information most journalist cannot access regarding the network's inner-workings, and Merchant's statements should give optimism to fight fans who want this question settled: who is better, Pacquiao or Mayweather. - examiner.com
