According to reports on the internet and various media outlets, a group of investors from UAE have put a consortium together worth an estimated combined $200 million to try and entice pound for pound king Floyd "Money" Mayweather Jr and Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao in the ring in the middle east.
Other reports floating around in cyber space suggest Pacquiao will fight in the UAE regardless with Dubai promoter Prince Amir, but now boxing executive Akbar Muhammad is said to be in the frame with the latest offer.
If you believe all you hear and the fight does happen then there is talk the entire event being the first billion dollar event.
One thing is for sure if the two greatest fighters on the planet are to face each other it must be the first quarter of 2015 as neither fighter is getting any younger.
