MANILA, Philippines – “Sugar” Shane Mosley and Floyd Mayweather Jr. have reportedly agreed to terms to fight for the World Boxing Association (WBA) welterweight title, according to a report by

"Shane has signed. I sat with him [Friday] and we went through every provision of the contract and he signed," Mosley's attorney Judd Burstein told "He is excited to move forward with the bout."

The fight is set on May 1 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Mayweather, who has yet to sign the contract, has reportedly expressed his intent to fight Mosley, according to Ellerbe.

"All of the deal points have been agreed to," Ellerbe said. "We still have to put pen to paper, but everything is agreed to.”

Mosley reportedly agreed to undergo random blood and urine testing, as has Mayweather.

The Mosley-Mayweather fight came into fore after talks for a Pacquiao-Mayweather fight collapsed due to Floyd’s drug test demands.

Mosley was supposed to face Haiti’s Andre Berto in a title-unification match, but Berto was forced to pull out after some of his family members were killed in the earthquake in Haiti.
