Now that Mayweather’s case is behind him, Floyd is clear to plan a major fight against Manny Pacquiao, which is expected to be one of the highest-paying bouts in history. The case had originally caused uncertainty in the fight planning because they were not sure how much jail time he would receive if convicted.
The big fight between Mayweather and Pacquiao is expected to take place in June. Promoter Bob Arum is considering building a 45,000 seat venue on the Las Vegas Strip to hold the fight. The original date suggested of May 5 was scrapped.
