Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight DEAD! Mayweather Jr. refuses to accept offer

By Nowboxing Staff

After nine long hours of mediation on Tuesday, Jan. 5 with retired federal judge Daniel Weinstein, the two camps for fighters Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao worked hard to come up with promising contract revisions they felt that both fighters would agree on.

But on Wednesday Jan. 6, Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao were both given the revised proposal which Pacquiao reviewed and agreed on, but Mayweather Jr. didn’t and rejected the new offer.

The mega fight was scheduled to take place on March 13, 2010 at MGM Grand Las, Vegas. Since Mayweather Jr.s refusal the fight is declared dead.

There is no news of what the new proposal contained. The main problem holding the fight back was Olympic style blood testing demands from the Mayweather Jr. camp which stemmed from steroid accusations of Manny Pacquiao by the Mayweather family.
