If Floyd really thinks that he can beat Manny, he would've agreed to the fight YEEEEAAARRSS ago.
But he's afraid to get a number on his loss column.
That's what I think. He keeps thinking this is just a money grab for Manny. I mean of course there's money involved, but Jesus Christ, if Floyd with still be able to earn about $50 million on a 50/50 share, BEFORE THE PPV splits, is it really a problem for him that Manny would earn the same?
Manny also draws. He filled up the Cowboy Stadium against Joshua Clottey on a boring fight. I don't get as to why he doesnt want to give him a solid split of the purse. Oh, and Manny is on the record that he's willing to take less money, and for Mayweather, he keeps pushing this reason.
It's not the money, it's that dreaded 1 on that loss column. Pacquiao is and will be his BIGGEST threat and he knows it.
For some reasons Top Rank and Golden Boy stopped working with each other. Not just pac-may. I remember the supposed to be superfight in the bantamweight division between Mares and Donaire because of promotion disputes.
I've read that Arum is in talks with CBS execs. I'm not sure how it went down. Would need to win more.
