BOXING BETTING: Representatives from the Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather camps have agreed on a mediator to resolve a blood testing row which is threatening their March 13 super-fight.
Betfred make Mayweather 4/7 favourite, the draw can be backed at 28/1 and Pacquiao is 11/8.
The MGM Grand Garden Arena showdown, which is expected to be the most lucrative in fight history, has been cast in doubt because five-weight champion Pacquaio has refused to agree to a random drugs tests request by unbeaten American superstar Mayweather (Mayweather 7/4 Points Win with Betfred).
Former judge, Daniel Weinstein, who has helped resolve previous spats between the pair, has been brought in to try and resolve the issue of P4P king Pacquiao agreeing only to submit to blood testing on specific dates.
Top Rank chairman, Bob Arum, told ESPN.com: “This guy was successful resolving our nutty problem before and hopefully he can be successful this time.”
He added: “He’s a guy who is a big fight fan and loves the sport, and I found him last time to be a delight to deal with. Everybody did.”
