Manny Pacquiao insists he’ll fight Floyd Mayweather but offer was financially unacceptable


LAS VEGAS – Manny Pacquiao was upstairs in the bedroom of his suite at the MGM Grand over the weekend, catching a nap after a long day of giving a deposition in a defamation lawsuit he filed in 2010 against fellow superstar boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr.

A little after 5 p.m., his dinner of steak, rice and asparagus was delivered, where it sat, untouched, for nearly 90 minutes. Finally, Pacquiao slowly, sleepily made his way down the stairs. He greeted me with a wan smile and headed to the dining room table. He bowed his head in silent prayer, then poured steak sauce over his food.

He didn’t dig in immediately, and was almost like a child forced by his parents to stay at the table until he cleared his plate. He ran his fork aimlessly through the rice, not seeming particularly hungry or eager to talk.

It wasn’t until the subject of a potential bout with Mayweather came up – the topic that no one fails to raise with him – that he seemed to awaken. Suddenly, Pacquiao shook the sleep from his eyes to defend himself against an incessant Mayweather campaign that has painted him as a reluctant warrior.

In the weeks before Mayweather announced Jan. 31 that he would fight Miguel Cotto at the MGM Grand Garden on May 5, Mayweather waged a public campaign for a bout with Pacquiao. He posted on Twitter and spoke at news conferences, using every opportunity to make it seem that Pacquiao was avoiding the big match.

You are facing a new Manny Pacquiao now. A God loving man! No one can harm him because God is with him and no evil minded people can get near him. He doesn’t fear man…He fears GOD!

“He offered me $40 million, and no pay-per-view [money],” Pacquiao said, breaking into a laugh. “No pay-per-view. Can you believe that? Would you do that? Come on. What would he say if I offered him $50 million – not $40 million, $50 million – and said ‘No pay-per-view. Take this money and be happy, but no pay-per-view.’ He wouldn’t do it, either.”

Also, Freddy Roach says “We Will keep fighting untill MAYWEATHER COMES TO THE TABLE!!!!… even if we have to fight till we’re 50 years old”

I told you guys, it really looks like Pacman is ducking MayNever, as every Floydiot fans are insisting, but the truth is Floyd wants 100% PPV…$40M or $50 Million but no PPV, c’mon….MayNever’s head has no brain!

You see, if MayNever receives the 100% PPV, that is estimated at around $160 Million dollar, plus the purse of $40 Million or $50 Million, then Floydiot will earn more that $200 Million…..can you believe that MayNever fans? Who the hell Floydiot think he is? Hopefully the defamation charges against this NeverFloyd will be…GUILTY!
