    This isn't any other fight, this is the biggest pvp event ever, and the biggest fight in decades. Even a 60/40 split of everything would be far more than what they're offering manny. Here's the thing though, without manny it's just another mayweather fight. Same thing if manny loses before the fight. Mayweather will never make more than he would off of this fight. This whole drama is one of the reasons why I'm much more of a mma fan at this point.

    True it's not. It would be a huge payday for each. I think that the suggestion about using the accountants is probably best at least to establish the parameters. Right now both camps are taking approaches that almost guarantee that the fight will never happen. I happen to feel that Mayweather should be the fighter who gets the most out of the deal. If the amount of money each had earned was closer to the same I would have less of a problem with a 50 - 50 split. As is though, Manny just has not shown that he can draw that fight as well as Floyd can. Just my opinion now based on the limited amount of research that I have done.

    The same thing goes on in the MMA also. If you think that GSP does not make more than say Nick Diaz, before his suspension, then you're fooling yourself. The sport is still relatively young so they have not been able to generate the type of money that Boxing has up to this point. It may never do that as well. So, the differences between pay outs are less drastic. Again, just another opinion.....

    they agreed to 50-50 once, and Pac's position has only improved since. So 50-50 is obvious. Over thinking it beyond that is ridiculous. We're not talking a guy who sells 1.5 vs. a guy who sells 800k. We're talking 1.4 vs. 1.3, 1.4 vs. 1.1, close differences like that.

    and don't even try to act like Floyd brings in this money himself. Canelo was on the card twice.

    then you factor in that Floyd -needs- this fight if he wants his undefeated record to actually mean anything...... Floyd needs to accept 50-50 and go out there and fight Manny.

    First of all, I have never heard anything about them agreeing to 50 -50 deal before. Got a link?

    Second, while they may genarate similar numbers for tickets sales and such, the people that pay evidently pay more per as he sure has earned about double what Manny has since 2006. That's even taking into consideration 2010 & 2011 in which you say Pac earned more. So, 50 - 50 still doesn't get it for me when you compare the value of the two fighters.

    Oh yeah, that Canelo is still an up an coming fighter but he is a HUGE draw!
