Wink should floyd not take the fight with pacquiao if he won't get more than 50% split?

pacquiao said 50/50 and it's on but floyd insist that pac can't have 50/50.

thoughts?

Look you dipshit just forget about the 50/50 bob arum already made it clear that pac was not fighting on may 5th so get over it. There was never no fight on may 5th for mayweather v pac.

Floyd should agree to 50/50, but I'm afraid Arum is just going to run away with this and leave the table saying "Oh there you go. He wants more money. We're fighting Cotto because he's overpricing himself. We can sit down to negotiate a fight in November", before Floyd even has an opportunity to drop the demand

He should take it, I'm a big Floyd fan but it is only fair that they both get equal share of the money. It would be very disappointing otherwise, I mean I can understand where he is coming from but he should just compromise.

it's the topic of the thread. pacquiao said 50/50 and floyd has the fight. floyd said he can't accept 50/50. should floyd not fight pacquiao if he can't get more than 50%?

60/40 to the winner or 50/50. Its that ****ing simple and its a damn shame that these guys can't get this shit done. Arum doesn't want it at all and that is why he refuses to go to the negotiating table to work all this shit out.

I`ll vote any option that means getting these 2 drama queens in the ring together.

If this fight falls thru because of this 50/50 bullshit, especially with all the money they`ll be making, then its purely because neither fighter wants the fight enough.... which to me is so sad & pathetic I can`t even put it into words properly.

50/50 is only fair, or winner take bigger peace.

50-50 and let them fight already
only 2 reasons for not accepting this, either greed or not interested to fight
no more excuses just give the fans what they deserve

so far, almost all voters think floyd should accept pac's suggestion of 50/50 to make the fight.

where are the other posters in the other threads who thinks floyd should get more?

Floyd should just ask for 60/40 to the winner. That will solve everything and there is no reason Manny shouldn't take that.

Then Floyd will accept 50-50 and the "Who ducked" argurement will be back on Paq.

Floyd should take the fight with a 50/50 split. Pac is more valuable in the ring as far as entertainment value, Floyd's appeal is outside of the ring. Floyd needs Pac more than pac needs Floyd. Pac has a better legacy, memorable fights, rivals, overcame adversity, took greater challenges.

60-40 to the winner creates too much opportunity to bribe officials. How bout 50-50, or 55-45 for a KO and Smogger @ ref.
