- Mayweather dampens hopes for Pacquiao fight
Unbeaten fighter Floyd Mayweather dampened talk of a possible mega-fight agreement with Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao, a day after the Asian star's promoter said a deal was near. Mayweather posted a message on his Shots account that said in part "While they continue to lie about making the fight... I'm just going to continue to travel and explore the world on my private jet. Pacquiao promoter Bob Arum told the New York Post on Friday that he was optimistic a Pacquiao-Mayweather deal for a May 2 fight in Las Vegas would be completed in the next couple of days, with only a few final details to be settled between rival telecasters HBO and Showtime, the rights holders for Pacquiao and Mayweather respectively. Mayweather, who turns 38 on February 24, left England's Amir Khan hanging for months until announcing on his birthday last year that he would fight Argentina's Marcos Maidana instead.

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce announced on Saturday that a deal which looked to have been on the verge of completion 24 hours earlier had fallen down due to a disagreement between the clubs over whether the United veteran would make the move on loan or on a permanent basis. "I don't know what's happening," said van Gaal, speaking after his team had beaten bottom-of-the-table Leicester 3-1 at Old Trafford to move up into third place in the Premier League ahead of Southampton's match against Swansea on Sunday.
