According to The Daily Mail, despite both fighters having bouts lined up in the coming months, Manny Pacquiao made another offer to Mayweather. It’s an interesting one to say the least.
Manny Pacquiao is challenging Floyd Mayweather Jr to split the giant purse 70 per cent to the winner and 30 per cent to the loser, if their mega-fight ever takes place.
According to the latest projections this would be boxing’s first $200 million bout so the PacMan is upping the ante considerably.
Let me be the first to say holy fucking shit that is a lot of money for a few months work. That’s a lot of money for a few lifetime’s work. The loser would take a projected $60 million. The winner would get $140 million. Yowza. That’s hard to turn down. My only concern would that this fight will almost undoubtedly go the distance. That means there would be somewhere in the neighborhood of $80 million dollars in hands of the judges. Consider the incompetency and possible (alleged!) corruption that could be involved in a fight with this size purse. I shudder to imagine the possibilities.
Thank you for reading Big Lead Sports Fantasy Fight Series. We’ll see you next time that Floyd Mayweather or Manny Pacquiao so much as think about each other.
Now let’s snap back to reality. Pacquiao is fighting Timothy Bradley on June 9, 2012. Mayweather is fighting Migue Cotto on May 5, 2012. Then Mayweather is going to jail. Then he’ll leave jail and start this dance again. Oh, and Manny Pacquiao might have to spend a little time in jail for tax evasion and harboring a fugitive in his native Philippines. Other than that, these guys are definitely negotiating a real fight that could totally take place really soon.
