Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao: Showtime and Top Rank to talk

Written by
Showtime Executive Vice President Stephen Espinoza has been a great contributor in reviving the Sweet Science by producing numerous blockbuster cards to the delight of boxing fans.
Golden Boy and Showtime most recently produced the highest grossing pay-per-view event in history 'The One', the boxing event between pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather and boxing's newest star Canelo Alvarez.

The fight card was quality from top to bottom showcasing top level talent in the co-feature and undercards.

Golden Boy and Showtime showcased on a world stage what they have been seemingly doing the last few years, providing quality cards that all boxing fans can enjoy.

Staying true to that philosophy is Stephen's newest venture. Securing the epic fight fans have been clamoring for since 2009, a challenging task given the troubled history of the combative promotional companies and television networks.

However renewed interest has been sparked by Top Rank CEO Bob Arum, expressing heavy interest in reaching a mutual agreement with Golden Boy and Showtime.

The Showtime executive will attempt to iniate contact with Bob Arum soon in hopes of producing the mega fight.

Stephen told the LA Times, "I will call Arum. This is an enticing enough opportunity to do it. HBO, for whatever reason, doesn't have an exclusive deal with Manny Pacquiao, so there's no reason it can't be on Showtime."

We'll find out how serious Bob Arum is by how welcoming he is to Stephen Espinoza.

Will this be the beginning of an eventual megafight or the continuation of hostile negotiations?
