Manny Pacquiao informed the Philippine public that his title fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. is on.

When asked in a live telecast program “Balita Pilipinas Ngayon” of Philippine television network GMA 7 on Friday if the WBC-WBA welterweight title fight would took place as expected on May 2 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada, Pacquiao replied “Yes, it’s positive”.

Mayweather’s signature is the only thing they are waiting before making a formal announcement.

“Pirma na lang (ni Mayweather),” said the hard-hitting Filipino prize fighter.wbc wba logos

Pacquiao once became more universally recognized champion when he was a title holder of WBC and IBF belts.

Pacquiao became only the pound-for-pound king beginning 2008 when the WBC champion Mayweather hanged up his gloves after his demolition of Ricky Hatton in December of 2012.

From 2006 to 2007 during Mayweather’s P4P reign, Pacquiao was behind him being the WBC International super featherweight champion.

In 2008 when Mayweather was resting, Pacquiao took the American’s position following his split decision win over archrival Juan Manuel Marquez to become the new WBC super featherweight champion.

The Filipino star defended the gold and green belt against David Diaz with 9th round stoppage in June 2008.

Pacquiao capped the year with impressive annihilation of Oscar De La Hoya. He won the first and special WBC Diamond Championship belt.

After Mayweather returned in the business when he tough Marquez a neat boxing lesson in September 2009, he was put behind Pacquiao for three years until the unbeaten Californian Timothy Bradley upset the Filipino congressman with controversial decision and Marquez knocked him out with lucky right hand punch both in 2012.

Pacquiao was already the P4P king when he captured the less regarded IBO super lightweight title from Ricky Hatton and WBO welterweight belt from Miguel Cotto in 2009.

Pacquiao took his 8th world title in different division, the vacant WBC World super welterweight title, when he mauled the bigger Antonio Margarito at Cowboys Stadium in Texas in 2010.

With Mayweather’s WBA title would be on the line, Pacquiao gets the chance to become undisputed world champion.

Mayweather wanted to keep his unbeaten run intact and he believed beating Pacquiao will solidify his status as one of the greatest boxer of all time.

Former WBC flyweight champion Sonny Boy Jaro (38-13-5, 27 KOs) will return to action next month.

The 32-year-old wants to take on fellow veteran Albert Alcoy (14-21-7, 4 KOs) in scheduled 8-round clash at the Angono Sports Complex in Angono, Rizal, Philippines.

The show is initially set on February 15 but promoter Aljoe Jaro is thinking to move it on Valentine’s Day.



Sonny Boy reeled on disappointment after his two scheduled fight against WBC super flyweight champion Carlos “Principe” Cuadras in the United States did not materialize.

Promoter replaced him by less dangerous Mexican challenger Jose “Sugar” Salgado in September in Sinaloa, Mexico and by the less prepared Filipino contender Marvin Mabait in November in Washington, D.C.

With activity in November against hardnosed Danilo Pena, Jaro keeps his good position to challenge Cuadras this year.

Aljoe did his part in the advancement of Jaro’s position to No. 5 in WBC rankings. His request to move up the stataus of the native of SilayCity to where he is right now was granted by WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman with full support of WBC Board of Governors at the WBC Convention in December at The Mirage in Las Vegas, Nevada

Jaro displaced the Japan-based Filipino and also a former WBC flyweight champion Malcolm Tunacao.

Sulaiman put Tunacao to No. 11 as he reasoned the boxer from Mandaue City had given a chance for a world title fight not too long ago.

Nobody represented Tunacao to defend his ranking. Even WBC Vice President and Chairman Juan Ramon Guanzon of the Games and Amusement Board (GAB) favored Jaro’s climbed and no objection of Tunacao’s fall.

Alcoy never even in Philippine rankings due to his failure to win in his last nine fights. He got only two victories in 21 appearances since July 2010.

2 WBC Asia Championships

Two Japanese against Indo and Filipino opponents headline the card.

Rio Hidaka (10-2, 8 KOs) takes on Indonesian David Koswara (11-12-2, 4 KOs) for the vacant heavyweight title while Takamori Akita (9-4-1, 7 KOs) battles Pinoy boxer Desson Cag-ong (14-12, 8 KOs) for the light welterweight title.

Cag-ong substitutes Dondon Lapuz (19-46-7, 7 KOs).
