Floyd To Pacquiao: Be Happy With 30 Million, No Back End!

By Michael Marley

We all love a parade but not a charade.

And what Floyd Mayweather Jr. is conducting is a propaganda charade.

Now, for the first time ever, I am firmly convinced that "Money" has no intentions of ever fighting Manny Pacquiao.

No. no, no and never.

Not because Mayweather doesn't view the match as a glorified exhibition, a sparring session which he easily win.

But because the control freak that lives inside Mayweather will not permit him to make a fair economic split with Pacman.

Floyd and Manny are boxing's two super powers but Mayweather's ego will not permit him to ackowledge that by splitting revenue 50-50.

Floyd won't even split Fifty Cent 50-50, he wants his shadow companion all to himself.

I digress, I know, but why else would a guy who is going to jail after his May 5 fight with Miguel Cotto insult an upstanding citizen such as Pacquiao with this comment from Wednesday's Apollo Theater in Harlem press conference"

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

After that dubious comment, Mayweather went on to his tiresome feud with and hatred of his ex-promoter, Bob Arum.

"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. 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."

Mayweather is not entirely wrong on Arum's in-house habit but he is doing what the shrinks call "projecting" because he's running the same game.

Mayweather, Golden Boy, and yes, Arum also, do whatever is best for themselves in any given promotional situation.
