A potential ‘Super Fight’ between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao would stand to net both boxers a guaranteed $50m, according to a recent report.

The report from Inquisitr suggests that two fighters would make a combined $100m if they finally agree to go head-to-head inside the ring. This is the fight that the whole world has wanted to see for years - and it seems that a clash between the superstars could take place in the near future.

Pacquiao is believed to be pushing hard for the mega-fight, but must first avenge his controversial defeat to Timothy Bradley on April 12 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The 35-year-old was beaten by Bradley in June 2012, but knows that victory could set up a clash with Juan Manuel Marquez, which would leave him knocking on the door - once again - of Mayweather.

Mayweather, the WBC welterweight champion and pound-for-pound king, is in action at the MGM Grand a month after Pacquiao. The US boxer takes on Argentina’s Marcos Maidana, following his decision to swerve Amir Khan, and is expected to keep his unblemished record intact with a comfortable victory.

But will Mayweather be prepared to lose his unbeaten record to Pacquiao? Unless he takes on the Philippine national hero then many will dispute his reputation as one of the all-time greats, while he will not receive anywhere near as big a pay day if he fights someone else - not that he needs the money.

"As long as both Pacquiao and Mayweather can keep winning, it's likely that both fighters would command $50 million each when they finally meet, insiders believe," the Inquisitr wrote.
