Relax, it's an unverified story. None of the people who matter are talking about the fight. It's just fun watchin fanboys like Olu get angry because he thinks his "boy" is getting "dissed" because the little Filipino has the temerity to want purse parity.

I come and go these days. If these two knob heads don't fight this shit will go on forever, long after they've retired. They'll probably end up arguing over who would have spent their imaginary purse better.

Good I can see what Olu is saying about Mayweather having the big PPVs, but I just think that the amount of money thats going around in this fight is incredible, so a 50-50 split and a chance to prove to everyone that you can beat Pacman and claim he is no 1 would be too hard to miss, wouldnt it??!! If he REALLY wanted the fight that is

Don't you dare be so logical about this. Amateur accountants like Olu need their man to get the most paper!

I just wanna know how Mayweather ended up on the wrong end of a 65-35 purse split against De La Hoya when he beats DLH in PPVs against all common opponents.

Mayweather v Mosley sold more PPVs than two fights combined of DLH v Mosley.

Mayweather v Gatti sold a healthy 365k PPVs whereas DLH v Gatti sold a surely disappointing none.

By bringing in Olympic style testing it rules out every PEDs so fighters wont use them and it will clean up the sport.

No more than any other athlete of similar standing.

No it doesn't. Multitudes of atheletes have used PEDs in the Olympics. Some were caught, some weren't but we know now that they were doped.

The problem in boxing is that it's actually impossible to have 'olympic-style drug testing' as there is no worldwide body to administer it.

Hatton = Hatton (but Pac did a much better job)
Oscar = Oscar (Floyd got a better version of him, but Manny did a better job considering the size difference)
Diaz > Baldomir (but not by much)

But let's look at another fact - Pac was constantly testing himself against naturally bigger opponents (despite that silly catchweight for Pac-Cotto). Floyd, meanwhile was either fighting smaller men, or men at a serious disadvantage physically until Mosley - who was 38, FFS.

Here's a reality check for you. Floyd does NOT deserve a 60-40 split just for being Floyd. He's as reliant on Manny to make serious money as Manny is on him. So 50-50 is fair. Anything less is, to me, just another way out of a fight Floyd just doesn't want for whatever reason.

it's a shame. Floyd got a lot of respect from me for how he handled Mosley. He's losing it with petty bullshit like this. Stop throwing up barriers to making the fight and the fight will happen.
Clottey < Mosley
Cotto > Marquez
Hatton < Hatton - Floyd got a better version
DLH < DLH - Mayweather fought up at 54, DLH was down at 47 for Pac
Diaz = Baldomir
Marquez > Judah

It's all much of a muchness really.

Pac decimated him, at his 'best' weight though (not at that point, but still) took the chances, annihilated him.

Floyd arguably lost the first round and pushed Ricky away with his elbow for 9 rounds. Then stopped him. Didn't even spark him

You are the one to laugh at because whilst you may be a fan you know little about business or for bthat matter the business of boxing. Read the following article so that you can get some learning about boxing business. Take as a business school tutorial moron:
