Earlier this month Mayweather had a 90-day jail sentence for misdemeanor assault postponed in order to allow the boxer to fight May 5 in Las Vegas. Since then the undefeated boxer has publically challenged his archrival Pacquiao to fight him on that date at the MGM Grand.

Pacquiao’s camp has expressed interest in a possible fight with Mayweather, but believes that the two sides can come up with a better date and location to hold the bout.
