For years fans have been wondering about the Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao dream fight. Could the dream be announced and become reality as early as the next 7 to 10 days? Read on...
In a report published by the Los Angeles Times, Lance Pugmire reports that an official source close to the negotiations but not authorized to speak on the proceedings, told the publication anonymously that noticeable progress was made in Thursday's negotiations.
