Arum: Pacquiao Agrees To Terms For Mayweather Fight

Manny Pacquiao was on his way to Los Angeles on Wednesday, preparing for a meeting with contestants of the Miss Universe pageant.

Whether he has an even bigger date on May 2 seems entirely up to Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Promoter Bob Arum says Pacquiao has agreed to all terms for what would be boxing's richest fight ever, a bout with Mayweather that fans have been demanding for five years.

The question now is whether the long-reluctant Mayweather will finally sign on the dotted line for what could be an astonishing $120 million payday for the fighter who flaunts his money better than anyone.

Arum says the fight would be held at the MGM in Las Vegas, where Mayweather has fought exclusively for years.
