Floyd Mayweather Jr and Manny Pacquiao had a brief phone conversation with one another on Wednesday night, which was reported by ABS-CBN news in the Philippines, as Pacquiao gave a brief account of what they talked about (translation via Ryan Maquinana at BoxingScene.com):

"It went O.K., the talk about the negotiation proceeds forward. ... I said that the 50/50 was approved and there’s no problem. Anytime. It’s in your hands. We’ll just wait if it’s O.K. with you."

Bob Arum confirmed to The RING that the fighters spoke on Wednesday, and says that Mayweather and Pacquiao adviser Michael Koncz have been speaking "quite often," and that the phone conversation came about when Mayweather called Koncz, who was with Pacquiao at the time.

I can legitimately and honestly say that I think this little bit of news is interesting. I don't know what it means, if anything, but this is actually interesting.
