The Manny Pacquiao vs. Floyd Mayweather Jr. light is dimmer, but it’s still burning hot!

“I’m always open to fight with Floyd, but the problem is that he doesn’t want to fight me. He keeps coming up with excuses like drug testing and how to split our money earnings. Let’s just give fans the fight they all want,” said Pacquiao in a recent interview.

Personally I can understand why Mayweather Jr. would have a hard time accepting a fight against Pacquiao at this point in time, but one thing for sure, Manny would probably agree to the terms now that he would not have agreed to before his loss to Marquez.

On one hard, why fight a loser? Now that Manny is no longer the fighter that he was a few years back, the significance of the fight has fallen. Or has it?

The fight would sell now as well as it would years ago, or in other words, it would sell out instantly at any price. The PPV numbers would break all records, and the amount of marketing and promoting would be overwhelming. So technically speaking, Mayweather Jr. could fight an older Pacquiao, offer him less money, and claim a higher profit.

Of course Pacquiao is no fool and would not give Floyd too much of his money pie, but he would most certainly be more lenient and would likely agree to most of the terms set by Mayweather Jr. just to sign the contract and make the fight happen.
