A day after fight promoter Bob Arum set a deadline for Floyd Mayweather, Jr. to agree to fight Manny Pacquiao in November, the pretty boy responded on Sunday that he was in no rush to make a decision. 

"I'm not interested in rushing to do anything," Mayweather told The Associated Press.

Appearing in Miami on Sunday as a coach at a charity basketball game hosted by Dwyane Wade and Alonzo Mourning, Mayweather happily fielded questions about the NBA. But when talk turned to boxing — and Pacquiao in particular — the fighter known as Money simply wouldn't respond, the Associated Press reported.

"I'm not really thinking about boxing right now," Mayweather said. "I'm just relaxing. I fought about 60 days ago, so I'm just enjoying myself, enjoying life, enjoying my family and enjoying my vacation."

Oddsmakers are holding out hope the fight will go off before year’s end. continued to offer odds on Mayweather-Pacquiao at Mayweather Jr. -160 and Pacquiao at +130.

The fight was initially supposed to take place this past March but Pacquiao refused to submit to Mayweather’s demands for Olympic style drug testing.  A public war of words soon followed.

Pacquiao already has agreed to an equitable split of the earnings from the megafight, along with extensive drug testing.

Although he hasn't spoken directly to Mayweather, Top Rank promoter Bob Arum said he believes the former pound-for-pound champion might be reluctant to fight this year because of the legal woes of Roger Mayweather, his uncle and longtime trainer.

Roger Mayweather will go on trial in Las Vegas next month on assault charges stemming from an altercation with a female boxer last year.

Should the fight not take place this year, will refund all bets as will most online bookmakers offering odds on the yet-to-be-scheduled event.
