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.

    Pacman stop ducking Mayweather. Mayweather deserves more money because he is entertaining. You are boring. They couldn’t even do a HBO 24/7 because you are so damn boring. Floyd has to hype the fight to be the villian so you can be the “good guy”. So take the money and fight.

    Neither of these guys want to fight each other because they can continue to make big money while fighting lesser opponents. Once they’ve gone through the lesser fighters, they will agree to fight in the twilight of their careers. The sum of the money going that route is more than it would be for one of them to lose now in the biggest payday ever and try to continue fighting those same lesser fighters.

  • Alan-Michael Alston

    Floyd is a diva, and there’s no way Pacquiao should accept such an absurd offer.  Floyd needs the fight more than Manny tbh…anyone who isnt a fangirl/boy knows that Mayweather has been avoiding a fight with Manny for quite a while now.  The fight wont happen because Mayweather is unreasonable, and thats the bottom line.  Its not like Manny is a nobody, Manny is one of the best in the world.

    The secrete gets out like always, Mayweather ducks the fight yet again.

    why give floyd more money? who wants to watch a punk?

  • king8lopez

    What an insult!!!! Floyd clearly doesnt want to fight paman. He made this offer knowing Pacman will turn it down. What a punk , that way floyd looks like he wants to fight him. Its clear that each fighter should get the same amount because they are both elite fighters, Floyd mayweather is king of PPV because its clear that everyone dishes out money hoping that he will lose. Thats why I pay to watch a mayweather fight,hoping someone puts a beating on this punk.

    What makes Mayweather think that he can tell Manny how much money he will make? I admit both boxers have an overwhealming amount of money, but Mayweather is a pretty greedy bastard to keep all the ppv income to himself.

    I wish I was a betting man because if I could bet money on how many times Gayweather makes himself look like an idiot, I would be rich. No Pay-Per-View money for Pacquiao but you get it? That’s real fair Hoodrat. And remember, he AGREED to all your stupid demands and it was your ghetto ass who ducked and said you were going to manage your gym instead. Quit beating on women and come get your ass whooped.

    when you say boring do you mean how he throws alot of punches and dances around the ring, or do you mean the boring way mayweather ducks the whole fight and runs and throws a punch here and there

    why not floyd looked better than pac in his last two fights ,  Pac’s  lucky to get any money at all , but then again put up all your money on pac, BELIVE  the HYPE.  his own opponets has told him that floyd is way too fast for him.  oh well  after this  he’s gonna need all the money he can get.  LAYING IN THE HOSPITAL

    With all due respect Mister irvingtonp33; this fight needs no hype at all! The history between these two is adequate enough! Floyd never has to try to be the villain because people genuinly don’t like disrespectful loud-mouths like him, anyway. These guys need to pull their skirts down and do this before they get too old!!!

  • Anonymous

    Dude be serious with yourself!  Last two fights?  Lets talk about the legacy of a fighter who was willing to fight any and everybody no matter the size of the opponent.  Please name a fighter that floyd has fought that Manny hasn’t?  Last I checked Manny fought the BEST fighters out there.  Do you remember when Cotto wanted to fight floyd and what floyd said?  “No his fan base isn’t big enough.”  Come on man!!!!  He wiped out the whole class besides floyd and he ducked him.  Now all a sudden he has a couple losses and floyd takes him on now?  Please do not argue this i’m a super Mayweather fan and I know his entire career move and every way he ducked all the best fighters.  Kinda sad when he has to make people believe he will be in the boxing HOF because of who he fought.  NOT!!!!  He wouldn’t have to bark that had he fought the tough guys.  Period!!!

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_EAQMYRGFO25PLR7VM4G2MIZY5Q MaleyaD

    It cracks me up that people still think Manny lost that last fight. I was at the fight and the only thing JMM was doing was blocking and counter punching. He was scared.
    I am not surprised Mayweather would throw out such an offer, the guy is a total tool. I honestly cannot believe this a$$hole has fans? I want this fight to happen, but I also believe Manny is all round ten times better fighter, man and human being! I also believe Mayweather doesn’t deserve to even be in the same ring as Pacquiao!!

    paquiao will beat the $Hit out of his big mouth!

  • Polo Champ

     I have to disagree man. Since Manny’s “rise” he’s fought Hatton, Marquez, Mosley and De La Hoya- all of which Mayweather has fought too. Mayweather also beat top talent in lesser divisions coming up. NEITHER of these guys have ducked anyone. At the phase of the game they’re in, it’s ALL ABOUT MONEY. They’re going to hype this fight, while fighting lesser opponents because they know we’ll order those at a higher rate. Mayweather fans will buy Pac Man fights to see him lose and vice versa. It’s marketinig genius. Because once the big one happens, the only money left to get is a rematch, if one of them doesn’t look terrible. In the meantime, they’ve been cashing in off of this hype since 2008, with the biggest payday still looming. People need to quit being “fan boys” and realize they’re both playing the game, maximizing revenue.

    OK people…There are some good points here and some bad ones, but lets look at the facts. Both of these fighters are at fault with the edge going to mayweather. If Manny had submitted to a drug test two years ago this may have already happended. Now, that mayweather is going to jail he was desperate to get the deal done, but his greed got the better of him. All he is thinking about is Golden boy promotions Oscar’s last firght with…Manny gave him the looser’s purse of 30 million and the lion’s share of the PPV over 100million. At this point in his career Oscar was washed up, and Manny was the real draw to the fight.  Greed is a bitch. Now we are looking at a fight in 1.5-2 years that will have a post jail inferior skills mayweather and  a manny that will have at least one more loss. Greed and age will make what should have been the fight of the century two people trying to recapture former glory.

    For the record I’m a Pacman fan, but I would never knock the skills of  Mayweather. I also believe if the fight happened two years ago Pacman would have wone running away. Today I think it would be close but Pac would bull it off, but in 1-2 maybe three years when this does happen Mayweather’s pure boxing skills would put him over the top on the cards, beacuse he can’t knock anyone out. 

  • David Wiseley

    Mayweather will soon be a piece of sh*t convict. He doesn’t have the right to call out who gets paid what. Flo mayweather ducked pac in the past, now gives a bullsh*t offer, he wouldnt agree to it either. Now he runs his mouth saying pac is ducking him???? I highly doubt it, Pac has loses on his record, he has nothing to lose, “Flo” is afraid of that……….I say…….P*SSY

  • Polo Champ

     Being objective, Mayweather should get more money for the fight, but his offer is laughable. He’s undefeated and has destroyed his every opponent in recent memory, including Marquez. Manny is coming off a very controversial win against Marquez, which brings his value down tremendously when bargaining against Mayweather.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Vaughn-Carter/1335275368 Vaughn Carter

    Sounds like you’re making excuses for Pac losing. Mayweather would have beat him 2 years ago just as he would today and will when they fight in the future. Manny has an advantage of being able to deliver with power from odd angles but Floyd is a technical master and would catch Pac out of position coming over the top with straight rights and would have pressured him to throw more, with Mayweather exploiting his lack of defense. Marquez did it and he’s nowhere near ass sharp as Mayweather. Be honest with yourself. The same technical flaws were there 2 years ago.

  • Polo Champ

     I’m sure if Manny got robbed of a decision you would see the Marquez fan’s point of view.

  • Polo Champ

    Let’s be real people. Most of the Manny fans are Manny fans in the whole good guy, bad guy thing. Or, they’re his fellow country men rooting for their own- which I completely understand. But Manny has weaknesses and the weaknesses he has is Mayweather strengths. It’s no secret that Manny picks bigger stronger guys to fight, so his quickness and punching ability will be on display. But when he steps in the ring with a quick counter puncher he struggles, if not loses- Marquez. The same Marquez that gives Manny fits, barely won a round against Mayweather. I’m no Mayweather tool and I think he’s an awful person from the outside looking in, but styles make fights and his style is not one that Manny is strong against. If he had problems with Marquez, imagine Marquez times 100, which Mayweather is.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Vaughn-Carter/1335275368 Vaughn Carter

    Manny didn’t fight a Castillo or a Corrales in their prime, a hard hitting straight forward coming great defensive fighter in Castillo would have broke Pacman down. Floyd is not stupid, maybe you guys is stupid, he only has one body and he’s gonna take as much money hyping fights as he can while keeping the public in suspense fighting mediocre fighters that have shown weaknesses that can be exploited. By the way Pac fans are worried about Mayweather while Pacquiao should really be concerned about making it pass Bradley.  

  • Polo Champ

     Let’s be real, Mayweather’s style will give Pacman fits. Marquez gave him all he could handle in their 3 fights and Mayweather is Marquez times 100.

    I really believe that Mayweather is totally afraid of Pac Man, because is the only one that can kick the sh…..of to him and closed his big mouth. I haven’t seen a boring fight from Pacquiao, by the contrary, Mayweather’s fights are boring, kicking and running never showing that he has real “cojones” for the infighting, he knows about Pacquiao’s punch and that’s why he’s afraid of him. Do you really think Mayweather deserves more money than Pac, personally I don’t think so, I pay my money to see pac’s fights not Maywearther’s.
    When somebody uses his big mouth also may use his back up, meaning, his big knockouts as Mohamed Ali. Mayweather is far, but far away from being a M. Ali. 

  • Polo Champ

     I’m not a Marquez fan and I’ve been over it, just giving you some insight on how they feel. I get it. If your guy gets robbed and it may be his last chance at glory, you’ll feel some way. If Manny fights Mayweather and he loses by controversial decision, I’m sure you would be livid. That’s how Marquez fans feel.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_CTVYVTFG5A7L54C4Q6WYG3PU6U Alex

    And you consider winning by sucker punching a great win?  Yeah, I get your inane logic!  Same logic as Floyd’s, hence, he’s destined for jail!

  • Polo Champ

     ^^Spoken from emotional Manny fan. Clearly not a boxing fan or a realist. Mayweather puts out the best PPV numbers and there was no controversy surrounding his last win. This is why he deserves more money. Also, Mayweather puts on boxing clinics of hit and not get hit. Manny’s defensive skills are severely lacking, which is not a good recipe against a counter puncher. All in all, I want Manny to beat Mayweather for personal reasons, but at some point people have to keep it real. Manny can barely beat Marquez and Mayweather is the same kind of fighter times 100. This is why Bob Arum dodged this fight from jump and spoke on fighting Marquez for the 4th time, because he knew he couldn’t get 50/50 after that last Manny fight. He also knew Floyd would counter punch him to death, like Marquez did once he settled in. Floyd’s fights are “boring” because he doesn’t get in risky exchanges and doesn’t get hit. But that’s what the sweet science is all about and all boxing purists know we’re seeing a master technician, not a wealterweight brawler.

    I like Mayweather. Marquez exposed Pacman. Pacman  can’t fight backwards. Mayweather will beat him worse than Pacman’s fans think. Mayweather is fighting “Cotto”. Now people are going to say “oh he won that one by luck”.

    Pacman lost that fight to Marquez. Bib Arum says “well Manny will fight” Marquez again lol or somebody else. But before he was like yea Pacman will fight Mayweather and etc.

    Pacman will lose because he is unable to adjust in fights. He cannot fight backwards, that is why Marquez could pressure him.

    Marquez even said Pacman cannot beat Mayweather.

    The black man is god to you. I am out man.

    Mayweather – a convicted felon, a woman beater, a court deposition-evader, a bully, a ranter, a racist, a media spinner (benevolently donated to Habitat and Breast Cancer but didn’t say that it was mandated by the court).  What a great guy!

    Did mayweather fight cotto, clotty, or margarito?  Did you notice how pacman destroyed all the opponents that floyd fought plus or minus one?  It doesn’t matter about who fought who first this is boxing we are talking about.  Pacman has a way better fighting record.  Period.  It doesn’t matter if pacman didn’t do well against marquez.  Know why?  Some people just have your number, and that is in every sport.  So no floyd gets no pass whatsoever.

    I’m sorry did you see Castillo mayweather 1?  Floyd clearly lost that fight.  A rematch gave him an advantage, and he clearly lost that fight.  Just like manny and marquez so don’t go there.  Floyd fought two people in their primes.
