Manny Pacquiao has disclosed two contract points, a 50-50 split and purse guarantee, as the remaining factors to determine if he’ll face Floyd Mayweather on May 5.
The below statement was released yesterday on Pacquiao’s official website.
To all my fans… Mayweather just needs to accept a 50-50 split, and if he does, the fight will go through. He is the one who needs to agree.
He’s the one who has to say yes. The reason is because he talks to a lot of people. He has a lot of representatives. If he takes the fight, he can make $50-to-60 million. That’s how much he can make.
I want to fight him. This is the fight the world wants. Mayweather wants a guaranteed purse, so what he has to do is get a promoter who can give him the guarantee.
I don’t have problems getting a guarantee because I have a promoter who will give me my guaranteed purse. If he gets a guarantee, then we are going to share the revenue on a 50-50 basis.
