he tends to show that he wants the fight only to offer pac some BS offer wihtout any PPV share. so pacquiao who was selling millions of PPV would not be getting any share as an offer from floyd when even floyd gave cotto a PPV upside deal?
floyd would come back as usual when pac is already committed. just like when he fought marquez and ortiz.
Seriously need to stop saying this.
Arum offers a fixed amount for Pac then a small percentage of PPV, the fixed amount Pac receives will be mainly from the PPV. Floyd offered Pac a higher than he normally gets with no percentage of PPV, where do you think the money Floyd was offering him would come from? his ass?
The only difference is the fact that no matter what the PPV result Pac gets a certain amount of money, Floyd is taking a risk (true virtually none) by depending on the PPV results, if you take a risk you stand to make more money, hence why promoters actually make money.
Also why is Pac already committed a fight and multiple months in advance?
