Floyd Mayweather: Manny Pacquiao is an Amazing Fighter, BUT ...

source: Shawn Craddick | Boxing Socialist

Yes, you heard it from Floyd Mayweather's mouth "Manny Pacquiao is an Amazing Fighter". If you know any better you know that it does not stop there. Floyd went on to say "But if your not hiding anything, then take the Test". It's a little confusing because Manny Pacquiao already agreed to take the test. He has no problem with that. The problem now is the 50/50 Split on the PPV Purse.

While Manny Pacquiao will be making the most money ever, so will Floyd Mayweather. Both of them will receive the highest paid Purse in History. The problem comes down to the PPV Revenue. Mayweather does not want to give it up because he says he is putting "HIS" own money up to make it a success. If it was up to Floyd, he would cut Bob Arum out of the picture.

This will always be an on going Battle. The only way this will get resolved would be to get them all in a room. Floyd, Ellerbe, Haymon, Manny, Arum, Koncz, and HBO Executives. If it takes 8 hours to negotiate, then do it. Don't walk away leaving the Fans empty handed. Mentally you are breaking the fans down. If you not careful you will "lose" fans behind this. As the old saying goes, "you have to give a little to get a little".
