When a man is on top of his sport and is the highest paid athlete, he can demand anything he wants. What Floyd Mayweather Jr. offered Manny Pacquiao was way above the Pacman’s pay grade.
Who is Manny Pacquiao to reject $40 million up front? Pacquiao doesn’t even make that much money in one fight let alone 4 fights. That shows fear. If someone rejects their highest payday and demands a 50-50 split in PPV money with the cash cow of boxing that only means one thing – they didn’t want the fight in the first place.
First, Manny rejected the Olympic style drug testing, then he rejects the highest payday of his life to fight Timothy Bradley for less money. Bob Arum really doesn’t want Pacquiao to lose to a fighter who isn’t with Top Rank promotions, and believe me when I say this, Pacquiao will likely get beat like he stole something from Bradley. Arum wins either way because he kept it in-house and Bradley will be his new money maker that he will continue to milk against washed up fighters.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. has been trying to get this fight on even terms since the first negotiations. Floyd has been calling Pacquiao out on Twitter, Facebook, in the media, and Pacman still hid under his blanket ignoring Floyd Mayweather’s challenges because he is scared of him.
Manny Pacquiao has to bow down to Floyd Mayweather’s demands and not the other way around because Floyd is the undefeated fighter and biggest star in boxing with the most fans. If the Pacman wants it, he must accept all of the demands, from blood testing, money, ring size, venue, glove size, and after Floyd Mayweather whoops Miguel Cotto on May 5th for the 154-pound strap, Manny Pacquiao must fight Floyd Mayweather at 154-pound’s no catchweight aka “Mannyweight” crap. If the Pacman really wants to prove greatness he has to be reasonable and learn that he has no right to demand equality when he has the worst deal in boxing and is coming off two horrible performances versus washed up fighters.
