MANILA – Although there are reports about Floyd Mayweather Jr. asking for a bigger share of revenues in a fight with Manny Pacquiao, the camp of the outspoken boxer has been relatively silent since the Filipino agreed to have himself blood tested 14 days before their possible bout.

Unlike in the past when the Mayweathers were practically non-stop in issuing statements to reporters, the camp of the former pound-for-pound king has been mum about a possible fight with the 7-division and reigning World Boxing Organization (WBO) welterweight champion.

“Nothing,” Top Rank promoter Bob Arum told The Sweet Science boxing website, when asked about developments on a possible Pacquiao-Mayweather fight.

"Haven't heard a word. The ball is completely in Mayweather's court. Every term has been agreed to," he added.

Pacquiao, recently elected as congressman of Sarangani province, has already softened his stand on Mayweather’s demand that he undergo a blood test 14 days before the fight, clearing an obstacle to talks for their much-awaited bout.
