Since the recent negotiations between Mayweather and Pacquiao have hit a snag, Bob Arum of Top Rank has offered current NABO Champion Paulie Malignaggi the date of March 13, 2010 to face Manny Pacquiao at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
The super-fight between Mayweather-Pacquiao would be the highest grossing boxing match of all-time, however both sides have drawn a line in the sand. Malignaggni just came of a big win over prospect and rising star Juan Diaz.
One has to ask whether this is all posturing for negotiations or not. One thing is clear, if both sides continue to disagree and not finalize a deal, there will be no realistic time to promote a fight of this magnitude.
