The money isn't the issue, Martinez has said numerous times that he wants to beat the best and last time I checked, Floyd was #1 P4P. Ward is too big and Pac is too small so that's why he wants to fight Floyd so bad.
I'm sure at this point, Martinez is richer than he could have ever imagined that he would ever be and he saves his money and invests it, I doubt he would turn down the fight if Floyd offered him 5% of the PPV.
I think Ortiz got 2 million (not including PPV money and what not) for his fight against Mayweather. Kind of crazy if you think about it, don't know what Victor's people were thinking. Guys like Dawson, Bradley, and Berto have gotten 1 million+ for fighting on HBO while bringing little fans or ratings.
