The world of boxing has seen many famous fights over the years - Rumble in the Jungle, Thrilla in Manila, the Ward vs. Gatti trilogy and, of course, Rocky Balboa vs. Ivan Drago.

But possibly the one battle that every fan of the sport still wants to see is Floyd 'Money' Mayweather Jnr. take on Manny Pacquiao in what would be one of the most lucrative meetings ever.

Pacquiao vs Mayweather

The pair have had an ongoing feud since 2009 and the idea of the fight has been hot in the media for years. However, calls for the two to meet died down after the Filipino suffered back to back defeats in 2012. But an unbeaten 2014 for both boxers has put the contest firmly back in the spotlight.

It's rumoured that the undefeated Mayweather and 'Team Money' would pocket a massive $100 million if the dual was to go ahead, with Pacman receiving $80 million.

Making the fight possible 

This would be the most that either fighter has ever received for time in the ring. Mayweather recently refuelled the situation by mocking the eight division world champion's knockout loss to Juan Manuel Marquez in 2012 on his Instagram page.

The 37 year old has also accused Pacquiao of taking performance enhancing drugs in the past, to give himself an advantage over opponents. Talks of a previous meeting between the two boxers considered to be the best best of their generation, broke down as the Filipino Slugger refused to adhere to Team Money's drug testing requirements.

However, there seems to be nothing standing in the way this time as Pacquiao has said he will go about it however his opponent wants to. This would go down as one of the greatest fights in history so let's hope the fans are given what they want.
