Pacquiao: My Son Wants Me To Fight Mayweather, Retire

By Edward Chaykovsky

Forget the fans. Forget the media. WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao is feeling the pressure at home. Pacquiao's eleven-year-old son, Emmanuel Jr., is pushing his father to retire from boxing - but not before he fights and beats his welterweight rival, WBC champion Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Pacquiao would have loved to fight Mayweather in May, but claims the undefeated boxer is too concerned with keeping all of the money. According to Pacquiao, he will agree to the fight at any time, but only if Mayweather agrees to a 50-50 revenue split. Mayweather offered him a guarantee of $40 million dollars, with no pay-per-view revenue.

“[My son says] 'Dad, I want you to retire, but before, you have to fight Mayweather and beat him,“’ Pacquiao said. “I'm willing to fight Mayweather. But I have to fight the guys who are hungry to fight me. Timothy Bradley is strong, and he can punch. He's a good boxer, so it's a challenge to fight a guy like that.”

“I was in the Philippines, and I told him, `We need to make this fight happen,“’ I said I would agree to a 50-50, and he said, `Oh, I'll give you a $40 million guarantee, and no pay-per-view. I'll take all the pay-per-view.’ I don't accept that offer. It's kind of embarrassing to me. It's trying to take advantage of me. He doesn't want to fight.”
