well floyd was offered a pac fight for dec or early next year by TMT. arum mentioned he has no problem working with TMT. pac was actually delaying to sign the jmm fight to see floyd's response. 50 mentioned that floyd needs more time. floyd confirmed this by saying that he is not focused on fighting right now and just lost 15 pounds.

Who knows if he lost 15lb or not but he had just gotten out of prison

Do you honestly think after what he did for months chasing pac and arum to book in may5 that he doesent want it?

They both want the fight, arum dont.

What happends if floyd comes back? Pacs booked for april, floyd will fight may as per usual and that leaves pacquiaos final fight in november... I think floyd will fight twice a year as he has expressed interest before going to jail.

But as pacquiaos last fight arum is looking to throw pac in with a young future TOP RANK star so that pac can passthe torch and keep it in house

well floyd himself said that. i call BS on that but it seems most floyd fans believe in it. even if it's true, it's not an excuse not to fight this december or early next year.

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?

it's a BS offer from floyd anyway. if you guys think an offer of no PPV share is too generous, floyd should have accepted the $50M counter-offer under the same terms the floyd has offered.

I think it will be Canelo which should be a quality fight.

I don't think it is too generous, I think both of the offers are shit, figure out a split and stick to it

Floyd vs Danny Garcia would make a lot of sense actually...or the Berto/Guerrero winner.

Floyd vs Danny Garcia is a missmatch but Pacquiao vs Rios would be quality.

Pactard logic.
