Pacquiao has global appeal, mayweather is not even close
Whites – 223,553,265 72.4%
Blacks – 38,929, 319 12.6%
Asians – 14,674,252 4.8% – (Filipinos Alone – 4,000,000 1.5%)
Other – 10.2%
Total USA Population: 308,745,538
Let’s get something straight. Manny Pacquiao has GLOBAL reach and appeal, Floyd Mayweather mainly appeals to some of the Black demographic in America, In Manny’s country, he is at almost 100% of nearly 102 million people in support. Even if all the Blacks supported Floyd, which they don’t, it would only be 12% of the total population of the USA at 38.9 million.
In the USA, where both of them hold their fights, there are about 38,929,319 Blacks, and about 4,000,000 Filipinos. Yet, Manny is in a dead heat in PPV numbers with Floyd Mayweather jr. Manny is the only fighter in the history of boxing to go over 1 million PPV sold for four straight years, Mike Tyson is the closest rival at 3 years in a row.
If Pacquiao was born and raised in the USA, Mayweather would be eating his dust at every turn. Mayweather would not be on the same level as Pacquiao, he would be #10 in Pacquiao’s harem, at second tier.
Big business are run by very smart people. Corporations want the best, most influential, and most popular personality that has the most reach and connection to the public to endorse their product, like Michael Jordan and Lebron James for example. Manny has the top Corporations as his client to endorse their products. Nike, HP, KFC, McDonalds are just a few that use Manny to endorse them.
Pacquiao is a very smart man. He does not have an education in the traditional sense, but he is a highly intelligent person. No one pulls himself from extreme poverty and rises to the very top tier of their country without intelligence. Manny chose his own path, he made his own way, he left home as a boy and conquered the world. His name is golden in big business.
I can’t say the same about Floyd Mayweather. His path was chosen for him. Someone held his hand and led him to boxing. Instead of having insight and knowing that a good image brings in endorsement money, he complains that Oscar De La Hoya and Manny Pacquiao has endorsement deals and he doesn’t.
Gee, Floyd, you’re not even smart enough to figure out why the endorsers are staying away from you.

Im a huge Pacq BOXING fan but IRL I think hes a religious psycho and he should be killed for his 1000AD views. World is better without religious idiots like him.
That said this dude has no global appeal, asian people are not "sexy" and nobody wants to buy anything from a asian person, even other asians. Sure he is popular in Filipinines and is a mega-celebrity there but thats about it. Anywhere else? nope, nobody knows him, nobody is going to buy stuff.
Plus those "asians" love white/black people, they try to dress like them, etc. Go to any Asian country like Korea or Japan and they are trendsetting and none of them will know who Manny is.
Face it *******s, Pacq = #1 P4P Boxer alive today, but he should stop all this dumb singing , it sounds like William Hung American Idol tryout, and he should stop public talking, everytime he talks about his views I lose respect for him.
Lets just be happy he's fighting and not writing your countries rule books or soon you will be burning people at the stake for being witches and raping albinos to cure diseases.

They are both popular all over the world you can't dispute that either way.
Floyd wants more money than Pacquiao but the split should be 50/50 for this fight. If Floyd wanted more money he should have fought him three years ago.
Manny has agreed to the testing up to two weeks prior to the fight and immediately following the fight.(That should be suffice and fair from both of their perspectives)
They are fighter's fighting in a court of law and not the ring.
The bottom line is that they need to cut the bull and fight for crying out loud this has gone on far to long!!!!!

how does popularity make you a great fighter? im not debasing your article. Sure manny is popular, so was Oscar it didnt make him win fights when he needed too. this thread makes no sense either manny makes 10-20 million Floyd has been making 40 million a fight. how much money do you need?
