One of the major hold ups why the Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Manny Pacquiao super fight won’t happen is the argument on which fighters should take on Cinco De Mayo weekend. Recently, the Mayweather Jr. called out the Pacquiao and to make the fight happen on May 2, 2015— previously assumed as the same date when Mexican Canelo Alvarez and Puerto Rican Miguel Cotto face each other on top of the ring— even calling it “Cinco de Mayweather”.

Mayweather Jr. might just have gotten his wish after Oscar De La Hoya, the founder of Golden Boy Promotions, has had a change of heart and declared via social media on Twitter that they are willing to move Canelo’s bout against Cotto if it mean that Mayweather Jr. will finally face Pacquiao.

In recent statements, De La Hoya was one of the many critics of Mayweather Jr., whom he has accused of disrespecting Mexico and Mexicans for trying to steal the limelight in the Cinco de Mayo festivities. The other one is Bob Arum, founder and president of Top Rank Promotions, who shared the same sentiment as De La Hoya.

“The only Mexican in the group is Canelo Alvarez, who is a big attraction among the Mexican people. And to poach on that date, which is a Mexican holiday by non-Mexicans, shows a terrible disrespect for the Mexican people, both those living in Mexico and those living in the United States,” De La Hoya said on Dec. 14. “And anybody who does the poaching ought to be ashamed of themselves. That goes for hotels and that goes for fighters and that goes for any of us. I’m willing to make that statement.”

It appears De La Hoya is now willing to give way to the highly in-demand fight between the top pound-for-pound boxers in the world today. With the recent pronouncement from the Golden Boy boss, the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao super fight is now getting closer to becoming a reality.
