Default Re: should floyd not take the fight with pacquiao if he won't get more than 50% split

--The ultimatum game is a game often played in economic experiments in which two players interact to decide how to divide a sum of money that is given to them. The first player proposes how to divide the sum between the two players, and the second player can either accept or reject this proposal. If the second player rejects, neither player receives anything. If the second player accepts, the money is split according to the proposal. The game is played only once so that reciprocation is not an issue.--

Arum was winning the dipshit holding up the fight, but, Floyd's last move of more than 50/50 has him climbing the approval rankings for dipshit move to hold up this fight.

At this point blame lies on Arum and then Floyd.

Yeah, I agree in a way. But Arum and Pac are one and the same, so its really still on team Pac (who, let's face it, agreed to take a smaller purse).

But put that aside.

Arum (and therefore Pac) are still not agreeing on the date and venue (despite what some "reports" are saying).

So the May and MGM has not been agreed.

If you ask me, even if everything was agreed in terms of date, venue and purse split, I'd bet everything I own that the testing issue would come back and stop the fight from happening.

Arum will only let Pac fight Floyd when he knows its his last fight, i.e. to cash him out.

Bottom line. No ifs, buts or maybes about it.

so far, 77 thinks floyd should accept pac's proposal of 50% while 5 thinks floyd should not take the fight if he won't get more.

Floydie will not take 50-50, because there's only one 50 for him.

50 : " Floydie's asshole is this big "

Floydie : " 50's dick is this long "

If it does over Floyd-Hoya and gets, say, to 3 million PPV buys, that's $180 million in PPV revenue.

And the fighters will get paid more then just the PPV revenue.

So yes, fair is fair.

BUT

If Manny was ready to fight on May 5 at the MGM Grand with the testing rules in place, why not just agree to it in the first place.

Then this issue of purse split could have occurred a few weeks ago and have been sorted out by now.

By putting all those roadblocks (which were excuses, lets be honest) in place for so many weeks, it's going to potentially prevent this fight from happening.

yes? you mean it's ok for you that floyd won't take the fight if he won't get more than 50%?

The thread asks should Floyd take 50-50.

The first line of my post you quoted says "yes".

Please read before posting.

But Arum and Pac have stalled and stalled.

They haven't actually agreed on venue and date (despite what some reports say), but if they did, they should have done weeks ago.

Then the purse split issue would have been dealt with by now and the fight signed (except I have a feeling if everything is agreed, the testing will become an issue again, despite Pac saying he's agreed to it).

Stalling after stalling after stalling.

I agree with PBF accepting 50/50 to make the fight, but clearly it's irrelavent per Arum saying it doesn't matter if Floyd agrees to 50/50 they still aren't fighting on May 5th, hence it doesn't matter if Floyd took 45%, Arum isn't making the fight, per his words.

How is Floyd "ducking", when Arum just said this morning, it doesn't matter if he agree's to 50/50 they aren't fighting on May 5th, etc? I know you read it.

The guy didn't defend anything, he pointed out that he doesn't blame Floyd for going after it since MANNY OFFERED IT, not sure what part of that you missed?

5 people voted no. They'd rather see Floyd get paid more than to see the fight

Yes he should. I don't see why he is (apparently) demanding more against a guy who is almost as big a draw. Not that it matters since BobTheBuilder still refuses to fight before June because he's building his mega stadium due for completion whenever Floyd goes to jail.
