Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s camp has denied there have been any ongoing negotiations for a November 13 Mayweather-Pacquiao super fight.  That is contrary to what Manny Pacquiao’s promoter has been saying over the past three weeks.

Top Rank's Bob Arum said on June 30 that he had concluded talks and was waiting for a decision from the Mayweather camp on whether he wanted to fight this year.  A supposed Saturday 3 am deadline was set and passed without any word from Mayweather.

Leonard Ellerbe, one of Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s closest advisers, says otherwise.

"Here are the facts," Ellerbe said in Monday's statement. "Al Haymon, [Golden Boy Promotions CEO] Richard Schaefer and myself speak to each other on a regular basis, and the truth is no negotiations have ever taken place, nor was there ever a deal agreed upon by Team Mayweather or Floyd Mayweather to fight Manny Pacquiao on Nov. 13. Either Ross Greenburg or Bob Arum is not telling the truth, but history tells us who is lying."

Mayweather-Pacquiao fight odds were still available at Sportsbetting.comwith Mayweather the -160 favorite and Pacquiao at +130.  Bets will be refunded should the fight not take place before year’s end.
