Manny Pacquiao has agreed terms to fight Floyd Mayweather Junior in May and is now anxiously waiting for his rival to put pen to paper.

Pacquiao”s promoters Top Rank say everything is signed off at their end to make happen the most-eagerly awaited clash in years.

However Mayweather has yet to agree to the contest, which would be on May 2 at Las Vegas” MGM Grand, and many commentators feel the fight will still not take place.

Carl Moretti, vice president of Top Rank, said: "Top Rank and Manny have agreed to the terms on our side. I don”t know about the other side.

Pacquiao says he is willing to face his great rival after years of the pair avoiding each other and it is believed he has accepted a 40 per cent cut of what will be the richest fight in history.

The Filipino has also agreed to Mayweather”s demands for drugs testing, which has been an obstacle in the past.

"I think that Manny agreed to USADA testing shows you his eagerness to make this fight," Moretti said.

Despite Pacquiao”s willingness to fight, the final call lies with Mayweather and he will decide if the fight happens or not.

Amir Khan, who does not believe the fight will happen, was in a similar position in the autumn of 2013 when he signed to fight Mayweather, only for the world”s pound-for-pound king to opt to fight Marcos Maidana.

Away from the ring his life has not always been so great.

He spent 90 days in jail in 2011 after being found guilty of battery against an ex-girlfriend – the latest in a series of criminal violence cases going back to 2002.

He has previously told of growing up in poverty in New Jersey, his family of seven sharing one bedroom.
