Pacquiao Says Mayweather Offered a $40 Million Flat Fee

By Edward Chaykovsky

According to WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao, he was treated like an opponent during last week's infamous telephone call with Floyd Mayweather Jr., Pacquiao claims he was offered a $40 million dollar guarantee - but nothing further- for a welterweight mega-fight on May 5th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Mayweather would retain 100% of the money generated from pay-per-view, and other various sources of revenue. Pacquiao turned the offer down and requested an even 50-50 split, which Mayweather rejected.

“He said he will guarantee me $40 million but I won’t have any share on the pay-per-view and other sources of revenue,” said Pacquiao to veteran reporter Nick Giongco of Tempo. “How can he leave me out of the pay-per-view when I generate more than him in pay-per-view sales? I am still praying that Mayweather gets enlightened because I believe that I am not being unreasonable.”

[QUOTE=Jim Tom;17012508]No way GGG accepts this stupid offer. [B]Why would he take a flat fee when the fight can sell. Every fighter needs a B side to sell a fight and every fighter should get a slice of the PPV…
