The fight between Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. is considered as one of the most awaited boxing fights of all time. The reason why is because of Mayweather’s continuous badmouthing of how he is greater than Manny Pacquiao in boxing without having to prove it in a match, as well as badmouthing other Asians, including Jeremy Lin which angered many, including UFC President Dana White who called Mayweather a “Racist” and that he challenges Mayweather to fight Manny.I Am All GreatRecently, Floyd Mayweather Jr. declared himself an all-time great. And that, he said, is regardless of whether his much-awaited fight with pound-for-pound rival Manny Pacquiao would push through or not. “I’m an all-time great, with or without Pacquiao,” Mayweather told Fred Strunk of on Tuesday during the New York stop of the promotional tour of his May 5 showdown with Miguel Cotto in Las Vegas.But as he continued to boast his greatness in boxing, he had also been continuously hounded by Pacquiao’s shadow wherever he goes.
According to Latest News of Pacquiao, most questions centered on his seeming reluctance to tangle with the eight-division world champion Filipino, now the World Boxing Organization welterweight titlist, even if both of them could earn at least $50 million from the fight.A New Way OutFloyd Mayweather Jr. had once again found a new way out in a match between him and Manny Pacquiao when he disagreed to an equal sharing for fight revenues, even though Manny had already consented on to all the American’s terms, including an Olympic style drug testing.”Just by speaking to Pacquiao on the phone, I mean, he’s not one of the sharpest knives in the drawer,” Mayweather told the media Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila) in the New York leg of the promotional tour of his bout against Miguel Cotto on May 5 in Las Vegas.
“He faces Floyd Mayweather, he’s not getting 50-50.”In addition to that, Mayweather had also said that he’d only consider fighting Manny if the Pound-per-Pound king will leave venerable promoter Bob Arum, head of Top Rank.Mayweather offered $40 million to Pacquiao last month, with the Filipino not getting any share of the PPV revenue. Pacquiao nixed the offer, proposing instead a 45-45 sharing with the other 10 percent going to the winner of the bout.According to Philippines Boxing News, Hall of Famer Arum went further, saying he’s willing to give Mayweather $50 million, provided also that the prison-bound (June 1) fighter doesn’t get any PPV share.
