40 mil is now off the table and Floyd will only offer 30 mil flat. PAC will also have to do OSDT the following 4 weeks after the fight.

he most likely will.. because he has no other options unless he retires.. which lets be honest his getting old and he just got out of prison, he is more then entitled to do


that being said he hasent even hinted at fighting again so i think people are getting a little ahead of themselves .. mayweather has lots of time to reply considering pacquiao is fighting dec 8 against JMM

Ray never wanted to fight Tommy when Tommy was prime, like in 1984 because Ray knew he would lose. Ray then decided to fight Hearns after Hearns lost to Barkley in 1988 and struggled with Kinchen that same year. Mayweather like Leonard did not fight Manny in 2009, but will probably fight Manny in 2013 if Manny struggles with Marquez. it is the same thing as Leonard against Hearns. If Mayweather sees Manny as beatable he will fight him.
but mayweather is not the one who walked away from negotiations? i know plenty of people blame him for the fight not happening and at the moment its correct he is. that being said back when the first round of negotiations began manny was the one to walk away from it because of the drug testing issue, PERSONALLY i dont find nothing wrong with his request and manny could have used it to his advantaged and said something to the tune of "if u want testing thats fine but i pick the gloves." or ring size.. or something else ... he might have gotten more cash using it as a bargaining chip, but instead he just walked away


also its 100% clear back in nov,dec,jan and feb of last year manny and floyd both wanted eachother but bob arum put a million and one roadblocks in place.


i truely believe unless floyd retires (which id say there is a good 30 percent chance he will) right now, he will take on pacquiao next .. though i dont favour pac to beat JMM so its going to diminish the fight a touch ( prob still break records)

If Pacquiao is really serious he's only serious due to the fact it's a chance for him to make one last huge payday. I'm sure however if Mayweather were to call Pacquiao's bluff. We'd learn that he never was serious about a match up.
Please. Boxing fans are fickle as ****. If Pacquiao looks spectacular against JMM in December, demand for the fight will be just as high as it was in '09-'10.

Bullshit.

He can fight Sergio at 154, and that's the fight I'd most like to see him take (and I know for damn sure I'm not alone here... especially now that Pacquiao has looked like shit in his last two fights). He could also take on any number of easier fights ie. Canelo and make $30+ million doing so. Damn near everybody wants that big payday, so he has more options than virtually anybody.

i think you miss understood what i ment

yes floyd has plenty of options but he hasent mentioned boxing since getting out of jail, couple that with pacquiao making more noise then ever going on tv interviews making it INCREDIBLY clear he wants floyd, whatever it takes , money , testing its not an issue


theres no way floyd can just pop up now and say "hey guys ima... fight... someone else..."

realistically he could wait till the fight with marquez is over and if marquez wins he could say "why would i want pacquiao he just lost!" but that leaves him in an even more dangerous position looking at fights with martinez who has been chomping at his heels for a while now and alvarez

He's done it before and so has Pacquiao. These are not people who embarrass easily, and as long as people keep paying to see their fights despite all their bullshit, what reason do they have to change anything?

Manny says he will take 45% yet he is scheduled to fight Marquez next. At the moment there is no fight for Floyd to agree to with Pac.

If he's agreed to 45% then he hasn't agreed to shit. Floyd offered him $40 million flat, not 45%.

The real question is, "Will Manny finally fight Floyd when he is shown (by the numbers), that he is not worth 45%?

Let's not forget that Manny priced himself out with the 50/50 the last time around.

Pactards like to think that the 45% makes Manny "in the right." They don't get that the numbers support Manny getting less than this.
so basically you're an idiot who don't want to see the fight
