Pacquiao, Mayweather Camps Fail to Settle Issues

ABS-CBN, Posted: Jan 06, 2010

MANILA, Philippines -- The camps of Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather, Jr. failed to resolve their differences after nine hours of talks on Wednesday in Manila. An ESPN.com report said Top Rank's Bob Arum and Todd duBoef, accompanied by their lawyers, met with Golden Boy's Richard Schaefer, Oscar De La Hoya and their legal team. They spent the day with retired federal judge Daniel Weinstein in an effort to save the March 13 fight. Also present during the meeting was Mayweathers manager Al Haymon.

It is unclear if the talks will resume on Thursday in Manila. Arum earlier said the only way the negotiations will push through is if the other side drops its demands for random blood-testing and makes a public apology for implying that Pacquiao is taking illegal performance-enhancing drugs.

Pacquiao, through his lawyer Daniel Petrocelli, filed a defamation lawsuit last week seeking $75,000 in compensatory and punitive damages. The negotiations hit the wall after Mayweathers camp demanded that Pacquiao undergo Olympic-style drug testing before the fight. The seven-time world champion thumbed down the demand and filed charges against the Mayweathers and Golden Boy Promotions for insinuating that he was using performance-enhancing drugs.
