Manny Pacquiao offended by lack of pay-per-view money in Floyd Mayweather’s offer

Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. each have fights scheduled in the upcoming months, but they won’t be facing each other. Floyd aggressively pursued a fight with Pac Man for May 5th but the Filipino wouldn’t agree to one. Mayweather says Pacquiao is ducking him. Now we’re hearing from Manny that Floyd’s financial offer was inadequate.

“He offered me $40 million, and no pay-per-view [money],” Pacquiao said, breaking into a laugh, according to Yahoo! Sports’ Kevin Iole. “No pay-per-view. Can you believe that? Would you do that? Come on. What would he say if I offered him $50 million – not $40 million, $50 million – and said ‘No pay-per-view. Take this money and be happy, but no pay-per-view.’ He wouldn’t do it, either.

“I told him, ‘OK, 50-50 [with the money] and I’ll agree to everything else,’ ” Pacquiao said. “I told him I would agree to all of the other things he was demanding. Everything. Even the blood testing he wanted, I would do it. But it had to be 50-50.”

Pacquiao says he wanted Floyd to be guaranteed $50 million with the rest of the revenue split — 55% to the winner and 45% to the loser. That seems like a fair deal.

Pacquiao has said that money is not an important factor to him when it comes to a fight with Floyd, but that doesn’t mean he should be treated unfairly. If Floyd insists he should be paid more guaranteed money and receive a greater cut of pay-per-view revenue than Manny, I can understand it, and I would expect Pacquiao to accept those terms. But to cut Manny completely out of the pay-per-view revenue is unfair.

    Just have the fight and be done with it! All the talk is pointless. They are both fine fighters worthy of consideration as pound for pound best in the world (for what ever thats worth). They are also great promoters playing all of the world for first class chumps( Floyd playing Jordan, Manny playing Pippen). They will at the end of the day probably both make over 100 million each ! Wake up sports fans and realize when you are being played in the financial grand theater. Floyd is a master at playing the”Bad Guy”! Realize Madison avenue has no promotional machine to equal Floyd. Like it or not without his motor mouth and over the top persona Manny is just another unrelatable foreigner! Floyd’s very existance has given rise to Manny’s! Truth hurts, especially when it comes from seemingly unrepentant boastful A#$hole like Floyd! Someone once said “Give the Devil his due” well it has never been more appropriate for use than now. Manny you should thank Floyd for all he has done for you! Like it or not people we know the truth so lets stop with the Floyd bashing because without him and his undefeated record and mouth, Manny means NOTHING!

    FOR ALL YOU FLYBYNIGHT SO CALLED BOXING FANS PACMAN WILL SPANK MAYWEATHER . HE WILL OUT POINT HIM  BECAUSE MAYWEATHER WILL RUN ALL NIGHT LONG . I THINK ORTIZ WOULD HAVE  POSSIBLY KNOCKED HIM OUT OR ORTIZ WOULD HAVE LOST ON POINTS

     Sucker punch?!!! Please.  Ortiz admitted to intentionally attempting to break his nose with a head butt.  For that reason he got immediately knocked out.  Can’t be a sucker punch when the ref says fight.  Look at the replay.

    How can you say Pacman’s career was WAY better when they have so many common opponents and Mayweather is undefeated? Their career records are very comparible and they have made about the same money except Pac gets screwed by Bob Arum. As far as ducking, Cotto is the only one that Mayweather has even remotely ducked, which I don’t think he really ducked because he was under Bob Arum at the time, but I can understand how it looked. Clotty is absolute garbage, there is no way mayweather would waste his time fighting him and Margarito is overated and would have been as unappealing a fight as Paul Williams vs Mayweather. Damn weren’t those guy exposed? Common who would you fight, Del la Hoya while still close to prime for 40 mil or Paul Williams for maybe 20 mil?

    Well let me ask you this.  Do you know that for sure?  Are you sure you can really say that when they never fought?  NO!  Pacman has proved what you cannot so that is irrelevant already with your argument.  Mayweather isn’t accepting challenges like a real champion is suppose to do.  When you are at the top you accept any challengers to establish your dominance and showcase that you are the best.  Mayweather has not done that.  Show me a challenge that he took from anybody?  The man pick and chooses who he wants to pick on then hypes up the fight enough for someone to want to see him lose.  Therefore the fighters he pick seem better than they actually are.  He has fought absolute garbage his entire career, and he will only fight someone after they have missed their primes so he can dominate them.

    Most of you guys don’t know s**t. Some make some interesting points, but all in all. You have to get past that cockyness and attitude Mayweather portrays. I don’t like it either, but he’s an entertainer, and judge the fight by his skills. Not life outside of the ring. That being said, Pacman is no challege for Mayweather. Promoters will be promoters, and they will eventually come to an aggreement. But Bob Arum is going to milk Pacman as much as possible. He knows that onces Manny loses, there is no more boxing for him. He will focus on his poilitical career. I wouldn’t be surprised if Manny fights Marquez one more time after Bradley. I can spend the whole day telling you why Mayweather will beat Pacman, but no time. As for Bradley, here is your payday man. But you are no match, not even in the same league. Nice guy overall, but not enough to overcome this obstacle. Mayweather might be a lot of things, and the best boxer is also one of them. Like it or not, but judge the fight by the skill in the ring. Not for twitter rants, or TMZ clips. That doesn’t give any opponent and edge, or him a set back. He prepares well, and is focused on his target at all times!

    Hey Mayweather – you don;t draw any pay per view with your boring fights and mouth. Nobody deseves 100 million mdollars to fight for a few minutes but that isn;t even the fact – Why donl;t you both fight for 10 million each and donate the rest to all the starving children in both your countries? hmm, omg that would be FAIR>>>> we don’t do that anymore….

    Mayweather is a punk. He waits for his contenders to get old or not in their prime. He should be ashamed to wear the championship belt. Knowing he did earn it.

    Wow, I am a fan of neither. That being said Mayweather is exactly what is wrong with boxing. Remember Roy Jones Jr? Never took on the best in his prime for fear of finding out he is not the best. Floyd is such a boring defensive fighter. He is afraid of being hit!  Roger Mayweather would have kicked bothe their A$$ in his day, you know before JCChavez whooped him!

    This is Mayweather’s way of ducking pac-man without actually saying no. He offered him a ridiculous deal that he knew he wouldn’t accept just to say that he’s ducking him, when in fact it;s the other way around.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/David-Bell/100002197215362 David Bell

    His entire career. Wow some people are amazing. Go on you tube and watch every mayweather fight, see how many times commentators are saying that this is a dangerous fight for mayweather, or predict he loses. Then listen to those same commentators swallow their words and HAVE to give the man his credit.

    But what would you say when Floyd whoops up on Mannys PED using ass? Funny that manny is cool with the blood testing now that he’s had time to get it all out of his system.

    Floyd is just plain PUSSY…plain and simple…can’t blame him though…his dad and uncle had been the trainers of some of Pacquiao’s opponents who were BORINGLY punished and whooped…they definitely know what Pacquiao is capable of…I understand you Floyd…hehehe

  • Anonymous

    Mayweather is so hoping Pacquiao doesn’t accept these ridiculous terms because he knows it will be the end of his reign as the mouth that roared. Not only will he lose his crown but he would have to get a rematch at the terms he is giving Pacquiao.  Floyd be happy that this fight probably will never happen, it is better to be remembered as the Champion who ducked a fight with the only contender that could whip him than to give him a chance and be remembered as the man who got his assed kicked by the guy he tried to duck!!!

    Although I like Pacman much better as a human being and champ, I agree with you that Floyd is too much for him and you’re dead right about those 3 Marquez fights.

    IF this fight is such a walk in the park for Floyd Mayweather, he’d actually make the fight happen.  You dont give a guy such a bad offer if you think you’re going to win.  You do it because you dont want to fight him, or you think you might actually lose.  Of the two fighters, Floyd is the ONLY one trying to protect a record.  Manny has lost already, and obviously is not afraid to lose.  Floyd *is* afraid to lose because he is trying to keep his record squeaky clean.

    The bottom line is Floyd will never fight Pacquiao because Floyd is a wuss.  Its just like Roy Jones Jr all over again.  The only difference is that Roy Jones Jr was at least entertaining to watch.  Floyd is just boring.

    Now it’s a ridiculous deal? Ever heard of a counter offer? Pacman’s promoters didn’t issue one. Why? Because they know their own fighter, the one that generates the most money, will lose. And if he loses, no more mega fights? They are milking Pacman? I don’t like Mayweather’s ways sometimes either, but you gotta respect his game. He can flat out box. I could care less about what he does with his life and money, but I pay to watch him fight and put on a clinic and never disappoints. Don’t hate, appreciate. Oh and for that guy above Eddie… Mayweather is older? So use another angle genius!

    Some of you guys don’t know what you’re talking about. You put too much emotion on it. So what if he flashes all this money, and comes out on TMZ and tweets. That still doesn’t change the fact that he is a great boxer. So is Manny, but he can’t beat Mayweather. This is a sports issue right. Look at the facts. If you can’t give me legit reasons, that don’t be such a female about it and bitch about other things. Its boxing. A sport but also a business, let them make their money. You dumbasses still watch?

    lariza, I think you miss the point that Manny is a fine fighter but without Floyd on the scene he is just another guy that the American market has no affection for. Cowardice is a shameful statement to make about any person that enters the ring and puts his life on the line, not to mention a man who has risen to the rank of champion. Obviously you have never been in the ring or you would not make such a insulting and ignorant comment. With that being said stay in your lane and leave the “Sweet Science” to those who know! P.S that goes doubble for the simple slappy that liked your comment!

    you are a floyd hating lying piece of garbage. you totally gloss over the fact that manny only fights these guys after he makes them go down to an un natural drained “catch weight” while floyd fights them at their best weights including his latest challenge=cotto at 154lbs! also acs fights are very suspect since he’s arum’s cash cow and only fights the fighters signed by arum. we all knew he would be fighting bradley next as soon as bradley signed to toprank. not fooling anyone fixed fight pac wins

    Dude you sound really retarded.  Floyd hasn’t fought anybody at their weight maybe one or two fighters.  Manny has been in many fights that i bet you didn’t think he can win.  Floyd had an advantage in every fight he has been in either they were out of their prime or floyd was just too skilled for them. Floyd has never gotten in a ring with someone bigger than him faster than him or stronger than him.  Manny has been at a disadvantage in most of his fights and fighting all the brutal fighters.  Floyd wants cotto now after he has lost his step but he wouldn’t fight him when he was undefeated go figure.  Guy you sound just like floyd trying to convince me that he has done what a true champion has.  Not this case.  Manny has that title.  And floyd proly will beat manny at that.
