Floyd Mayweather to Manny Pacquiao (In Best Soup Nazi Voice): No More Pay-Per-View Cut for You [VIDEO]

(How about $1 Million dollars and an autographed 8×10?”)

Manny Paquiao told reporters during a recent media scrum that Floyd Mayweather recently called him up and offered him a guaranteed $40 million purse, but said he wasn’t willing to share a cent of the pay-per-view cut.

“I spoke with Floyd on the phone. He called me on the weekend. I told him, ‘Let’s make the fight happen and I agree for 50/50 [on the pay-per-view] and whatever blood testing you want, as long as you agree for 50/50.’ And he said, ‘Let’s do this. I’ll give you this amount and no more pay-per-view for you,” Pac Man recalled with a chuckle. “After that, I gave it to my people [to handle]. He was very serious. It’s okay with me that he has a bigger guarantee and I have a smaller guarantee, but it’s 50/50 for the distribution of the pay-per-view.”

According to Paquiao’s manager, the final offer given to Mayweather was a $50 million guarantee for Manny and a 45-55 percent split of the pay-per-view revenue, but “Pretty Boy Floyd” just wasn’t having it.

“Manny said,’ ‘Let’s make it a prize fight where the winner will get a prize less than 10 percent more than the loser,” he explained.

Paquiao revealed that the bout, if it does happen, could be his final fight and said that his family wants him to retire too.

“My kids — the youngest one is 11 years old and he said, ‘Daddy, I want you to retire, but, before you retire I have one request.’ I [asked him], ‘What is that? And he said, ‘Give me one [more fight]. Fight Mayweather, beat him, and then retire.’ Even my kids [want to see that fight happen].”

Make it WINNNER gets 60% of PPV and I bet Floyd STILL doesnt take it. He knows he is getting that O on his record and he wants it to be over $100 million to pay for it.

I not a boxing fan, but 3 million PPV is probably a good bet for this fight? That would be $150 million. With HALF goin to cable/PPV/elsewhere, around $75 mil is left. A 60-40 cut is around $45 mil for the winner and $30 million for loser. And MOre to both if PPV is higher

Fuck Floyd, that racist, arrogant pile of sh!t. He is NOT happy with making $50 or 60 has to be more than that for Floyd to fight. That is fucking disgusting, being petty over money when BOTH can make $50 million.

F**K Floyd. Arguing over money that huge and being that petty. I hope Fluyd gets a lot of dates in jail. What a scumbag

The kid really wants Manny to fight one more time so that they can finally finish that addition to their solid gold house.

I think he should take Floyd's offer. I'm sure it would end up being "Fight of the Night" and he could pocket another cool $65K.

Wait, so is it happening or not?

At this point, all I really care about is whether it's a done deal or not. But the pay per view issue is interesting. This fight will probably garner more pay per views than any other fight in history, so the difference between 40 percent and 50 percent could be ginormous.

@gruge-I think Monty Brewster showed us all that you can Blow through 40 million. I mean he spent $30 million in 30 days and had nothing to show for it. And that was before gas was $4-$5 a gallon.
Duh Ogre- March 16, 2012 at 5:33 am
@gruge Not true. I recently read an article stating that Pacquio is burning through his money like a fire in in the southwest. He's going to broke before we know it.

40M is enough money to run a stem cell lab for ten years, and save hundreds, if not thousands of lives.

This is fight exactly why the world needs to end. NOW

What the fuck?, hes not happy with 40mill?. Mayweather is a dick sure, and it SHOULD be 50/50, but 40mill?. You coundnt spend that if you tried. In principal, Mayweather should say 50/50, but 40 MILL!!!??, all principal flies out the window, who gives a shit?. Just say, "yea sure, whatever" knock him out, make him look like a twat and take your 40mill. If this fight doesnt happen because no one is happy about the obcsene ammount of money they will make, it just makes me sick.
