That's why I brought up what you called "nonsense". Because it's that "nonsense" which is the biggest obstacle in making this fight. Both guys are going to plead their case as to why they should get the lion's share of the money.
Mayweather "I Deserve the Bigger Piece of the Pie"
" "I deserve the bigger piece of the pie. I've done more, I've been around the sport longer and I've been dominating longer. And nobody has beaten me yet. Like I said before, they trying to build a fighter to beat me. They built Ricky Hatton up, undefeated; it didn't happen. They constantly build these fighters up. It's not going to happen. When God wants me to lose, that's when I'll lose," stated undefeated multi-division champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. as he talked more about a potential clash with Manny Pacquiao. Although negotiations for the showdown have yet to officially get off the ground, Mayweather is already doing his part to state his case for the lion's share of the purse. "
did he really just say that Roach wants this fight so that he can "cash out" before he dies??????
that has to be one of the most classless things i've ever heard. i have no idea why people keep trying to back this guy up.
if he wasn't my most hated athlete before, after reading that he definitely is now.
As a Filipino, of course I'm gonna vote for Manny. But even if I wasn't, Manny is a class act, humble and doesn't need to trash talk. FMJ is the "bad guy" of boxing, IMO. He loves to insult people and he's undefeated because he hasn't fought Pacman yet. Besides, 5 division titles = FMJ vs. 7 division titles = Pacquiao...um, that's pretty obvious who accomplished more. I think Sugar Ray Leonard had 6.
Edit: Also read right after the Pacman vs. Cotto fight that FMSr. accused Manny for using performance drugs, that's the only way he beat Cotto. Real classless people.
