Mayweather outsells Pacquiao. I think should the fight not happen, he probably has the more interesting options.

Worldwide Pacquiao is bigger. Not sure how that translates into earnings.

The only numbers that really matter are ppv sales, not t shirt sales. However if 50/50 was agreed but has now fallen through, **** em.

It doesnt actually, and ive yet to find a reason why. Only US figures count. Sounds stupid, but thats the way it is.

Whether it was more arum bs or not....he said the international rights for a floyd v manny fight would bring in $5 mill. That seems ridiculously low, but if it was close to being true, i guess there's the answer.

Pac v marquez reportedly did around 1.5 mill which is a great figure. Arum never released pac v mosley (showtime) suspicion being that it didnt do too well. Floyd v shane and ortiz both did over 1 mill i think.

Yep, if floyd has no valid reason for saying manny cant have 50/50 (allegedly he agreed to it, wait and see if he actully did)....then both these fighters can suck a hot one. Stick the fight up their ass. Boycott floyd and pacquiao ppv's....stream is your friend now.

meh, i dont even care anymore. considering the years of "build up" to this fight, excuse after excuse, it's destined to be a major disappointment for those who have waited so long.

wanting more than 50% imo shows he doesn't really want the fight.

he keeps saying how much that he wants to fight manny now, and nobody else, and says he will whoop him.
telling pacman to man up and show some balls.

yet floyd continues with the games to make it difficult to get the fight on.

either he wants the fight or not ffs.

i don't think he does.

The fight should be 50/50 & if it doesnt happen both sides should definitely deserve some of the blame at various stages.
Looking forward to being in the US in late May & most of June & hope to get to a big fight or 2, in LA, Vegas or NYC.

Using Shane as an example isn't really fair as floyd fought him wen his stocks were high even though he was over and had been inactive for a while, perfect timing. I'm sure PAC margarito / clottey did as well as Ortiz / Mosley .

It is extremely fair because shane was never a draw and was always a b side to any ppv. So it means floyd (and pac) carried those ppv's that involved shane. Any "timing" relating to mosley is irrelevant.

Pac/ clottey was a flop compared to his recent numbers. It only did 600 k. Floyd/ ortiz did 1.25 mill, floyd/ mosley 1.4 mill. Pac/ margarito 1.1 mill

Floyds was clearly outselling pac, however their numbers ( on average) are close now.

If floyd agreed to it (im sure he did at the start) then the blame can shift to him now. He hasnt got the number of excuses manny and arum have but its a hurdle nonetheless so floyd can get rooted as well. Stick the fight up their arses.
