    blah blah blah built in excuses. Pacquiao is one-dimensional? How about changing up from that defensive style of yours, Floyd? Already trying to get some sympathy because he knows who the crowd favorite is.

    "If I go out and make $60-75 million in one night; come on - I'm not losing."

    that sounds like a no win situation alright.

    They should do 40-40 split with winer getting 20. If floyd knows he will win I don't see why he doesn't take it.

    What a self absorbed moron.


    His antics will speak for themselves and the fact you won't win just for the money will be all too apparent. God I hate this guy so much.

    Pacquaio is a great fighter, Floyd doesn't know he'll win. He's a boxer, he's cocky - so he's going to talk himself up and put Pacquaio down.

    I do think there is some truth in what he says. If Mayweather wins it will illicit more of a 'eh' response. If Pacquaio wins some will be surprised and many more will be rejoicing that he beat Floyd's cocky ass.

    I will predict Floyd will make it boring. He is like hopkins their styles just aren't conducive to good fights. If pac starts lunging in he will be eating counter punches. He has to be patient if he wants a shot.

    Its the same thing he said before the weekend. He says he has nothing to gain from fighting Pacquaio, and that's why he won't do it.

    What's changed is that Roach said he wants Floyd, and the seeds are now publicy planted in the crowd. Hopefully this happens.

    I would be rooting for Pacquaio but I'd expect Mayweather to win in a decision.

    He has a point. He should win and he is a much bigger guy than Pacquiao but Manny is by far the best opponent out there for him. Why come out of retirement if you don't want to fight the best, Floyd?

    This fight will happen simply because of the money Mayweather will make. I expect he'll win too but I hope like hell he doesn't.

    Watched a few rounds of the Cotto fight last night.....even the sound of Pacquaio's punches were different to his opponent, he just has so much power its amazing!

    Considering Pacquaio is with best pound for pound fighter in the world and has stepped up 7 weight classes to now be in a position to fight Mayweather.....he has to fight him!

    If your saying no one would care if you beat the best out there right now, why fight at all. He fights any other fighter and you'll get the same response. Yeah go fight someone else and tell me Floyd what do you gain? The same I'm "suppose to beat him" if you win and "wow Floyd lost" if you lose. If anything there's nothing to gain if you fight anyone else.

    Right now, Manny is the best P4P fighter, if Floyd doesn't want that title anymore and also shut all the critics up and then he can keep telling himself and everyone else there's no point in fight Pac-man.

    I think that's a fair compromise but what if the fight goes to decision? 20% of purse would be tens of millions of dollars. I'm sure a judge or two could be bought for a million a piece.. And if Mayweather would win this fight, he'd probably would win off points and on a decision. So I don't know how that would work out..

    the person who has more foreward steps should get the 20%.
