On the other side of it pacquiao would have no bargaining leverage against floyd in negotiations. Dude would not settle for the 10 percent or whatever offensively low split floyd offers
The Bradley debacle is a moot point. Everyone thought PAC won, and that's all that really matters. I guarantee sooner or later Floyd will want the fight, since he also has to keep up with the "money" monecar. Either way, if he never fights Floyd, my point still stands. He can easily collect million dollar pay checks fighting any hot fighter at the time. His fan base will ensure this. He's not so worn down to the point where he seriously has to consider retirement. He just beat an "elite" fighter in Bradley. Its easy pickings in today's boxing land scape. Of course if this was the era of sugar ray/Duran/hearns/benitez, he should definitely retire after a Marquez fight, but its damn sure not. Why not fight some name recognized bums and make foolish bank.
