ATTEMPTS to restart negotiations made no further progress. While Floyd Mayweather remained imperious in the ring it was Manny Pacquiao’s form that dipped. 2012 was a disastrous year for Manny. He lost a controversial split decision to Tim Bradley and then his fourth encounter with Juan Manuel Marquez [pictured above] ended with an astonishing knockout as Juan Manuel leveled Pacquiao in six thrilling round. It looked like the time for the Mayweather fight had come, been missed and was now gone. In 2013 Floyd signed a massive six fight deal with Showtime.
