Floyd Mayweather on Manny Pacquiao: “How my deal is structured at this particular time in the sport of boxing is that I keep 100 percent of the revenue, so why would I even give a 50-50 if I’m out there?”
Following an alleged assault by Pacquiao advisor Michael Koncz and assistant trainer Restituto “Buboy” Fernandez on photographer Al Bello in the post-fight aftermath on Dec. 8, Getty Images is requesting that the NSAC take action.
Tim Bradley says that Manny Pacquiao “hasn’t fought anyone as young and hungry like I am in a long time.”
Manny Pacquiao’s advisor, Michael Koncz: “Our counter offer to Floyd Mayweather was a $50 million guarantee, plus the overage on the pay per view would be split 45 percent to 55 percent, with the winner getting 55 percent.”
Floyd Mayweather on his telephone conversation with Manny Pacquiao: “He asked about a 50/50 split and I told him no, that can’t happen, but what can happen is you can make more money fighting me than you have made in your career.”
Promoter Bob Arum says Manny Pacquiao is unlikely to return to the ring until June 9, meaing that Floyd Mayweather Jr. will already be serving jailtime.
Miguel Cotto’s advisor, Gaby Penagaricano, assesses potential matchups against Manny Pacquiao, Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Saul Alvarez.
Richard Schaefer on Bob Arum: “It’s just one bulls–t story after the other…People should just realize that this guy doesn’t want to do the fight.”
Like everyone else, Freddie Roach will be eagerly awaiting the results of Bob Arum’s trip to the Philippines to decide who’s next for Manny Pacquiao.
Manny Pacquiao will be offered his choice of opponents between Tim Bradley, Miguel Cotto, Juan Manuel Marquez and Lamont Peterson on or after January 10 in his native Philippines.
Lamont Peterson’s trainer, Barry Hunter, says Lamont Peterson is ready for any top fighter in the sport, including Manny Pacquiao.
Angel Hernandez says that his training methods were validated in Juan Manuel Marquez’s November performance against Manny Pacquiao.
Manny Pacquiao’s advisor Michael Koncz said “Lamont Peterson is another option” among those being considered as an opponent in the wake of Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s legal issues.
