They both had something to lose, they both have an endless list of reasons why they didn't sign, they are both to blame.
add to that that even though he had already lost another loss would decrease his fan base because it destroyed the aura of invisibility he had gained. YOu wouldnt believe how many people actually thought Pacquiao was undefeated when the fight talks started

What challenges? Oh you mean draining a legitimate threat? The dangerous fighters he fought were all at catchweights.

Floyd's just still busy trying to read the first draft of the contract from the first time they were negotiating.

So, Pacquiao signs to TMT or Floyd signs to TR? There's too much money and greed involved in this fight for both promotions to split it.
you're getting as bad as boxing_master with the dumb threads.

Nah! Manny was offered mo money by Mayweather than he'll ever make and the Pactards can't deal with it ! $40M is what was offered. Manny will never see that kinda money. PPV or not. Also 2 more fights at 20M + PPV ? He'll never make that kinda Money at TR, so why say no? It's Manny that doesn't want the fight and Heymon has tried and Manny has cried. Now he's working the Pactards along with Roberto Garcia as Mayweather being the one responsible for this fight not happening. Manny has his chances and now he needs the money. ****em like Money says.. He had his chance and he blew it !
