"We just want to make that fight happen - for the sake of the fans, for the sake of the millions of people around the world who are excited to see that fight.


"I just want to prove who's really No 1. If the fight is on and he beats me, I'm really convinced he is No 1. If not, I'm No 1."

A Mayweather camp “insider” had been quoted as saying “they’re putting it together”, but there has been no word from the Money Man himself.
