Manny Pacquiao's trainer, Freddie Roach, told The Associated Press on Monday that discussions could begin as early as Tuesday for a bout against Floyd Mayweather Jr., once results are in from the Philippine elections.  This has the sports betting community and online bookmakers alike excited.

Betting on the Pacquiao-Mayweather fight has been in full swing despite the mega event having already been cancelled once.  In fact, Pacquiao-Mayweather is among the most popular bets being offered at in recent weeks. 

"It will probably be November, maybe October. November's not a great pay-per-view month, but I think it will happen," Roach says.

In order for Pacquiao-Mayweather bets to be counted as "action", the fight must take place before the end of this year. 

Mayweather was a -175 favorite at press time while Pacquiao would pay out $110 for every $100 bet.

The two fighters have been engaging in a bitter war of words ever since initial negotiations broke down related to stringent Olympic style drug testing.

Roach wouldn't say whether Pacquiao would budge on the drug-testing dilemma.

Mayweather has said that every fight he takes, beginning with Mosley, will include Olympic-style blood testing along with the typical urine tests required by most athletic commissions. That means the fighters could have blood drawn in the days leading up to the fight.

Pacquiao believes giving blood makes him weak and refused to do so within 24 days of a fight.

"If Manny Pacquiao can take a blood and urine test then we have a fight," Mayweather said shortly after his victory May 1. "If not, no fight."
