I think it should be 50-50 just because they'll still both make more than they've ever made on a fight before, and that seems to be the main hang-up. Unfortunately, the egos involved on both teams aren't going to agree on an even split. 60-40 means Team Pacquiao backed down and 50-50 means Team Mayweather backed down, and I don't really see a resolution for that. Both fighters will be satisfied with their careers even if they never fight each other, so unfortunately I think money will remain the biggest issue in making it happen. Neither fighter needs the fight to happen, so why compromise?
OH SHIT THE PACTARDS COMING OUT THE CUT!
Niggas talking about how this proves Pac can beat Floyd? LOL. I mean it not like Manny " The Catchweight King" Pacquiao didn't DRAIN Cotto to fight at 145 right?
PAY ATTENTION. I applaud Floyd for taking this fight AND allowing Cotto to face him at his BEST.
THE CHAMP IS HERE. 43 MEN GAVE TRIED.. 43 HAVE COME UP SHORT
Cotto is naturally 147 pounds, so I don't believe for a second that he was drained at 145. It was for the WBO welterweight title, but they agreed on 145 because Pacquiao had never fought above 140 until that fight. Pacquiao weighed in at 144 for that fight and Cotto weighed in at 145. Cotto made it to the 12th round before Pacquiao got the TKO, and in the 12th of this fight Mayweather probably could've scored a knockout, but he stayed calm and went to the scorecards. I think anyone claiming that Floyd fought a "better" Cotto is stretching things a bit.
If someone really believes Cotto was robbed, I'd like to see what fight they were watching. It must've been the same one Cotto's wife was watching. I was pulling for him, but he only won 3-4 rounds.
Cotto fought at 147 for years! If half these flomo's actually followed the sport of boxing outside of mayweather you would have known that. smh..It's ridiculous the way floyd fans fool themselves into believing everything that comes out the mans mouth no matter how many times he contradicts himself. Like ya'll really believe he was taking those punches for the sake of entertaining his fans?..Those same fans didn't wanna see a knockout? lmao he must have not gave a fuck about those fans in all the other 42 fights then. haha...flomo's be the worst.
