Final proposal by Pacquiao camp

Promoter Bob Arum has delivered what he says will be his last

proposal to salvage the fight between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd

Mayweather Jr. The fight is in jeopardy because of a blood-testing

dispute.

Under Arum’s proposal, the Nevada Athletic Commission would have

the final say in how much testing there would be for the fight and

when it would take place. Preparations for the fight would go

forward and there would be three blood tests – none within 30 days

of the fight – unless the commission decided otherwise at a

mid-January meeting.

Arum said Sunday that Pacquiao’s side would go no further than

the proposal, and that he will begin negotiations Monday with Paul

Malignaggi for the March 13 date the megafight was supposed to take

place on.
