Arum and company were disappointed about the Bradley-Pac PPV sales compared to Pac-JMM .... thus JMM-Pacquiao 4.
as for the necessity of the 5th fight ... if people make a claim that Pac got robbed on the scorecards for the DRAW .. can't the same be said of the 3rd fight? where one judge had it 8 rounds to 4 for Pacquiao?
**it's still a marketable fight, but after four already, I feel like another Pac-JMM bout is a bit excessive.
