While we wait for the fight, Manny Pacquiao has done a funny commercial for footlocker, where he overhears a piece of a conversation between two men and wrongly believes based on their statements that Mayweather has agreed to fight him in the ring.

Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao: The Billion Dollar Fight moves a step closer... so will they finally get in a ring together and make the richest event in sporting history?  

Published: 08:50 EST, 17 November 2014 | Updated: 02:55 EST, 18 November 2014 - the Billion Dollar Fight – no, not a movie, the actual promotion – will come closer to reality if Manny Pacquiao wins in Macau on Saturday night.

Pacquiao versus Floyd Mayweather can become the single richest event in sporting history and the enormity of the prize will surely be enough to break down the barriers which have prevented it from taking place thus far. This bonanza is being made possible by the prospect of the first pay-per-view fight broadcast in China.
