New York Times published on Monday that a Manny Pacquiao vs Sugar Shane Mosley fight on May 7, 2011 at MGM Grand in Las Vegas is likely to happen, and a meeting on Tuesday will push through to finalize the agreement.

According to the report, former three-division world champion Sugar Shane Mosley announced that his adviser will have a meeting with Top Rank promoter Bob Arum on Tuesday and ‘discuss the details and maybe agree’ on a contract to pursue a Pacquiao-Mosley fight next year.

“We’ve already discussed the fight about three-four weeks ago, so now we’ll go over it again,” Mosley said in a telephone interview.

“Both sides just need to commit to what we’ve talked about and then I think we’re done.” The 39-year old American boxer added.

Incidentally, Mosley also shared the news to former former world heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis through Twitter, saying that he is ‘just excited about the fight with Pac (Pacquiao)’.

Mosley, with a record of 46-6 with one draw and 39 knockouts, said he is willing to submit himself to any kind of testing but insisted that Pacquiao will also do the same.

Apparently, Pacquiao’s trainer Freddie Roach announced that he wishes Mosley to undergo a drug testing after an alleged involvement of steroid distribution in 2003.

Meanwhile, no formal announcement or confirmation was revealed from the camp of the eight-division world champion boxer as of this writing.

Manny Pacquiao has record of 52-3 with two draws and 38 knockouts, and turned 32 last Dec 17 where he was said to have played the role of Santa Claus on his birthday party.
