How dare Manny Pacquiao reject a $40 million guaranteed payday, who does he think he is, Floyd Mayweather Jr?
There is only one true cash king in boxing that can demand big bucks, and that is Money Mayweather. For Manny Pacquiao to think he is on that level is absurd.
If you saw Manny Pacquiao’s last payday for the Juan Manuel Marquez fight, he only got paid a guarantee of $6 million, while Mayweather was getting $20 million guaranteed paydays, so the only reason that Manny would reject the highest payday of his career is because he is SCARED.
If Manny Pacquiao really wanted to fight Floyd Mayweather Jr. he would accept everything from drug testing to purse split. After Pacquiao got embarrassed by Marquez, I think a 70-30 split in Mayweather’s favor should be reasonably fair.
Bob Arum doesn’t want to put his fighter in with Mayweather because he knows the outcome is not going to be pretty. If you thought Juan Manuel Marquez and Shane Mosley gave Pacquiao problems, just imagine what a master boxer like Floyd Mayweather would do to him? Let’s just say the fight will not be competitive at all.
In Pacquiao’s next two fights he will only make $12 million tops, that is $6 million each fight not even close to Floyd’s $40 million offer, and let’s not forget that his pay-per-view buys will suddenly drop because he was exposed by Marquez and people won’t waste their money on him anymore if he loses or looks horrible in his next fight.
If I were Manny Pacquiao I would take the $40 million from Mayweather and take my ass whooping like a man.
