Manny Pacquiao: I Believe Mayweather is Avoiding Me

By Edward Chaykovsky

Trainer Freddie Roach is convinced that a mega-match between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. will be a 100% dead issue if the two fighters don't come together in 2013. The two sides have been trying to make the match for the last three years.

Mayweather recently brushed off Pacquiao's proposal of a 55-45 split, which guaranteed Floyd a bigger piece of the pie. The WBA junior middleweight champion has an issue with Pacquiao's promoter, Top Rank, and no compromise is coming any time soon. Mayweather might be moved by a 60-40 split in his favor, but Pacquiao will not agree to anything less than a 45% split.

"I think if the fight doesn't happen next year, it never will happen. People are getting bored and tired of (talking about it). We're chasing a rabbit we can't catch," Roach told USA Today.

Pacquiao told the paper that he believes Mayweather is avoiding him.

"If the fight doesn't happen, it's not my fault. I'm not going to accuse him of being greedy or judge him. It's hard to judge. It's his title, it's his life, (but) I believe he is avoiding me," Pacquiao said.

[QUOTE=WESS;12657693]So Pac finally realizes that he will now only be able to take what Floyd gives him? Sad as he could have had a 50-50 split years ago…. He can only blame himself. That or Bob Arum. I blame Bob.…

This was before he got KTFO. He still could somewhat justify asking for that much. That ship has sailed.
