Two Decembers ago it looked to be an excellent Christmas for boxing fans, as it seemed Santa Claus has left them an excellent present – a bout between the two best boxers in the world.

But Christmas turned into Halloween, as a treat turned into a trick when negotiations for a fight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao unraveled over drug testing.

Now, as we prepare for Christmas 2011, boxing fans are once again being teased.

Bob Arum, Manny Pacquiao’s promoter, has gone on record, stating that a bout with Floyd Mayweather is his top priority for the Filipino boxer.

As for “Money” Mayweather, he as released a sensational video via boxing website FightHype.

The video, which can be seen here, shows Mayweather clearly calling out Pacquiao.

“I been told the boy May 5th is open. I told him May 5th is open...Now you know me, to all the FightHype fans and all the fans, May 5th is the date. Sign the contract! Sign the contract! I'm waiting. Now I can't be sitting waiting all day, now. You want a fight, let's make it happen,” Mayweather told FightHype.

In the video, Mayweather also speculates that Manny Pacquiao maybe taking large cash advances from Bob Arum, before his multi-million dollar paydays.

Time will tell, but this writer is leery that a bout between Pacquiao and Mayweather will go off in 2012.
