Koncz: 55-45 is Real, Mayweather Likely Not Interested

By Rick Reeno

Michael Koncz, the adviser to former eight division world champion Manny Pacquiao, informed that the Filipino superstar was completely serious when he stated during two interviews that he would be willing to take less money in order to finalize a super-fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr.

According to Koncz, Pacquiao is willing to accept a 55-45 monetary split in favor of Mayweather - and Pacquiao would also accept Mayweather's terms for a random drug testing protocol. He would also allow Mayweather to receive top billing in their promotion [posters, ring walks, etc.]

"Manny is of the position now he don't care. If that's what its going to take to get Floyd in the ring - he would do 55-45 regardless of who wins," Koncz told

Mayweather's adviser, Leonard Ellerbe, was not moved by Pacquiao's proposal. Ellerbe told The Los Angeles Times that "Pacquiao can't dictate sh*t" when it comes to the actual fight terms. Based on Ellerbe's recent response, and other factors, Koncz believes Mayweather is not interested in a Pacquiao fight.

"I don't think Floyd wants to fight Manny to be honest with you. I'm not criticizing him one way or the other, whether he should or shouldn't. My opinion is - I don't believe he wants to get in the ring with Manny," Koncz said.

"I don't believe it's going to happen. And the the longer it takes to happen it loses some luster with each week that passes by."

If Mayweather's handlers submit a counter-offer, which provides Mayweather with a higher monetary percentage - Koncz doesn't expect Pacquiao to take any less than a split of 45%.

"I don't believe we would [take any less], no," Koncz said.

Pacquiao returns to the ring on December 8th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, taking on Juan Manuel Marquez for a fourth time.
