Speaking to Yahoo Sports' Kevin Lole, promoter Bob Arum revealed that the Pac-Man has given the go-ahead as have representatives of Floyd Mayweather. But, although it is Pacquiao himself who has agreed to the much anticipated super-fight, the agreement from Mayweather's camp is from Floyd's representatives rather than the man himself.

"I want to get some movement here, with bringing Mayweather to the table so we can go out and get everything signed and get the networks together and get the thing finished."

In 2012, Mayweather personally offered Pacquiao $40 million for the fight, but Pacquiao declined because he wouldn't have received any of the pay-per-view revenue.

"I'm not trying to force anybody's hand, I'm just saying, 'Hey, we've agreed to everything, period.' The people we have talked to on Mayweather's side have agreed to everything. Now we need Mayweather to step up and say, 'Yeah, I'm on board. I agree.'"

"I'm not going to put a deadline on there. I'm just going to hope that everybody does the right thing and we get this concluded. It would be really sad if we went through this stuff again like we did before."

But these doubts have been crushed with the Pac-Man's recent resurgence. Now, with Manny Pacquiao having agreed the terms and Mayweather seemingly very close, the fight may very well take place within a couple of months.

Whatever the outcome of the Pacquiao - Mayweather bout, it will go down as one of the biggest and most highly anticipated fights in boxing history.
