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=bojangles1987;14018641]Irrelevant. It's not being offered now, and was a terrible offer at the time.[/QUOTE] How is your largest purse to date a terrible deal? Because you like him and don't care for Mayweather does not make him an equal drawing…

[QUOTE=Money Team.;14018596]I will bet you anything he would pray to God for an offer like that now[/QUOTE] Irrelevant. It's not being offered now, and was a terrible offer at the time.

[QUOTE=junior gong;14018632]Better to be known for being against it rather than gleefully embracing it and indulging in it like you do.:lol1:[/QUOTE] Gadzooks foiled again. I'll get you one day Racism Man!!!!!
