Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Manny Pacquiao…at a Miguel Cotto press conference?

5 Comments

At the Apollo Theater on Tuesday, Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Miguel Cotto held a press conference to promote their Cinco de Mayo fight in Las Vegas.

Mayweather seemed interested in another fight that still might not ever happen but would be one of the greatest fights that boxing has ever seen

A looming fight between Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao is still the talk of boxing because it could be the richest fight in the sport’s history. According to the Associated Press, Mayweather said the fight is all about splitting the money that the two fighters would generate.

“Just by speaking to Pacquiao on the phone, I mean, he’s not one of the sharpest knives in the drawer,” Mayweather said at the press conference. “He faces Floyd Mayweather, he’s not getting 50-50. Not at all. No one is getting 50-50.”

Although it has been reported that other things such as drug testing have held up the mega fight, money seems to be the biggest dispute. Top Rank promoter Bob Arum has said that drug testing is not an issue but payout between Mayweather and Pacquaio has been the biggest hold up.

“Bob Arum likes to match Top Rank fighters with Top Rank fights. He keeps all the money in house,” Mayweather said.

“If I offered him $30 million, he should be happy,” Mayweather added. “If I offered him $30 million and I didn’t give money on the back end, why should I? He’s with Arum right now, and they’re having problems. It’s obvious he must not be getting money on the back end.”

“If I offered him $30 million, he should be happy,”

You should offer more to make the fight happen

FLOYD MAYWEATHER SAYS: “Floyd Mayweather is a winner at the end of the day. Floyd Mayweather is not a cheater. If I was Timothy Bradley, I’d have Manny Pacquiao take random blood and urine testing.” Your Thoughts?
