I am torn about this.
Part of me wants for him to stick to his guns so the whole WBC vacant 8 title **** would not happen.
Other part of me wants for him to reconsider. So they could fight in Dallas. And, I could watch this entertaining potentially exciting even FOTY type of fight live.

Manny pricing himself out of this **** fight is actually a good thing...lol.
Horus I think somebody heard about the alleged Mayweather 25 Million per fight with King.
But hopefully all Pacs boy lovers put the myth that he doesn't fight for money in the trash.

Because what we know about pacquiao is he is hardhead when it comes to money.. and lets see how Arum gets Manny to moved on his stance...
