A Mayweather-Pacquiao fight only makes sense now if people think Manny is a credible threat and he isn't, he just isn't....
Neither was JMM or Cotto, and those fights happened. Guerrero might be next. Of course they took way less than Pac would probably take even now, but at least at this point a very uneven split is justified.
