Pacquiao on Mayweather-Cotto, Stands Firm on 50/50 Split

By Manouk Akopyan

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. - As the smoke settles from yet another convincing Floyd Mayweather performance, the sport's other superstar took center stage in Hollywood by making an appearance for the premiere of "The Road," a film made by Manny Pacquiao's fellow Filipino countrymen.

Pacquiao quickly walked the red carpet, fielded a flurry of questions from every direction, and then went into the Arclight Hollywood Theater for the North American premiere of the horror film. Before he did, Pacquiao talked Mayweather's latest win over Cotto--albeit very briefly to a group of gathered media.

"It was a good fight," said Pacquiao, keeping it very short and not straying past that line. He then discussed the prospects of a matchup between him and Mayweather.

"I always want to fight him. Whatever he wants to do as long as it's 50/50 with the pay-per-view," he added.

As soon as he finished his thought, Pacquiao was swiftly directed by his handlers to graciously pose for paparazzi behind his Prada sunglasses.

Hours before at the nearby Wild Card Gym, Pacquiao was preparing for his June 9 fight against Timothy Bradley at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas. Pacquiao arrived in Los Angeles Monday afternoon to begin a full-fledged training camp with trainer Freddie Roach.

As for Wednesday, after a circus-like red carpet at night, he ended it by watching the "Thrilla in Manila."
