Pacquiao: Only Floyd Mayweather is Preventing Our Fight!
Mobile Version Share Click Here To Email   Search BoxingScene Database 

WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao takes part in a Q&A session with HBO, discussing various topics as he prepares for his upcoming fight with undefeated WBO junior welterweight king Timothy Bradley on June 9th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

At this point, what is keeping you and Floyd Mayweather Jr. from climbing into the ring together? Will the fight ever happen? How Important is to you being considered one of the best of all times when you career is over? What's that your goal when you started fighting 8 divisions below?

"The only thing preventing a fight between Floyd Mayweather and me is Floyd Mayweather. He no longer wants to split the pay-per-view revenue with me equally, something he agreed to in our first negotiation. Will the fight ever happen? It's up to Floyd. I hope it does. I'm a competitor and I enjoy a challenge. I know the fans want to see us fight. I think it would be good for boxing. As long as I continue fighting I will remain hopeful that the fight will take place."

"To be considered an all-time great is very important to me. Hopefully my story can inspire people to achieve their dreams. When I was growing up, watching Sugar Ray Leonard, Roy Jones Jr, and Larry Holmes fight inspired me to work harder and to become better. They still do inspire me. They were great. They were my heroes.

"I never dreamed that I would achieve as much as I have. I wouldn't even dare to dream of winning world titles in eight different weight divisions. My goal when I began boxing was to earn enough money for my family to make their lives easier and to win a world title - to be considered the best in my weight division. But as opportunities presented themselves - world title fights at higher weights against superstars - I worked harder and studied harder."

"Every victory was an incentive to do better in my next fight. I believe it is the responsibility of every boxer to put on a good show for the fans and themselves. It's the only way to grow and invest in the sport. Making boxing fans happy is a legacy that would make me proud."

Pacquiao Offered 45/45 Split & The Winner Gets Xtra 10% & Floyd Said NO! *****!
comment by tlarry, on 05-26-2012
Floyd stop telling us what a business man you are, how your pay per views are greater than Manny's. At the end of the day, Pacquiao has fought much tougher competition than you ever did, many of them multiple times, AND he offered the winner of a fight with Floyd the xtra 10%, and gutless Floyd s...

Pacq made 20 mill for the Mosley fight!! whoever thinks he's making 6 mill for this one needs immediate brain surgery.

Anyone who believes that Mayweather has no blame in the fight not coming together, they are seriously an order of fries short of a happy meal. There is no way to get almost a half dozen huge egos with team Pac and team Mayweather and not have a struggle for control. Instead of just getting the fi...

[QUOTE=MayMosPeaHop]All you did was blame Mayweather for being the smarter businessman.[/QUOTE] I see nothing smart about avoiding Paqciao. Easy work, easy money.
