    I don't agree with the title of the thread. I think that Pacquiao and his camp are just as much to blame for the match up not happening up to this point. Floyd makes a statement that he offered Manny 40 million to meet him May 5th. He also said that he agreed to send 20 million of that within 48 hours if they would accept the deal. From what Floyd says, they came back saying it had to be a 50 - 50 split. Mayweather would not agree to that.

    Does that mean that he's ducking Manny? I don't think so. IMO he had a valid argument. If the gates that he draws are consistently larger than Manny has been able to draw, why should he do a 50 50 split? Makes sense to me.....

    I agree that it needs to happen. I don't have anything to back this up with but I think that the Mayweather camp was suggesting somewhere in the neighborhood of a 60 - 40 split. Obviously, the 60 would go to Floyd. I'm not saying that I agree with Floyd's stance but I do understand it. I actually think that Floyd would go for a winner take all deal. I'm not so sure that Pacman and his crew would...

    Stop this madness. Money May never ducked this goon a day in his life.

    As long as Bob Arum is involved in all of this, this fight will NEVER happen.

    Period.

    Floyd wants 60-40, yeah.. and also 100% of the pay per view money. Pacquiao gets $0. You think that's fair?

    Look at that video.

    He's scared. Ducking. By the way, Pacquaio already agreed to all the testing a long time ago. Mayweather scared.

    I wouldn't rule out Timothy Bradley upsetting Pacquiao and getting a shot at Mayweather. I know it may be a long shot to some, but he's a local fighter here and has been impressive as of late. I've seen most of his fights up close and the guy can hold his own! Not a knockout guy but any means, but can box with the best of them. I could definitely see a match between Bradley and Mayweather in the not to distant future for a battle of "undefeateds" if Bradley were to catch PacMan by surprise.
    I just try to be myself, whatever that is. I don't think about how I'll be remembered. I just want to be consistent over a long period of time. That's what the great players do.

    That's probably fairer than 50 - 50 if Pack doesn't have a history of generating the type of payday that Mayweather has. Cotto got 8 million I think. Has Manny ever made 40 million?
