I really dont get the 60/40 split thing. 50/50 sounds right to me. If this last fight generated 70 million for Floyd, a PacMan fight could double it, 100m minumum. Neither of them need the money, so what's the issue. Pure pride? If/when he beats PedMan he can walk off into the sunset as a true GOAT.

both are scared to lose, and with Ployd making a CRAZY amount of dough for a surefire win , .......I don't see this fight happening unless Pac does all of the PBF stipulations.

I was hoping Floyd would go somewhat broke to get the Pac fight started, but that is not the case.

Pretty much.

They are getting paid $20-40 million per fight to NOT fight each other.

And it keeps getting hiigher and is adding to the final show down between the two.

i honestly feel they are milking the cow dry, if they fight, which ever one loses will not be drawing the same ppv numbers as the did prior to fighting each other, so they are fighting less talented fighters and making great money doing it. We would all probably do the same, but as a fan it pisses me off because they arnt giving the boxing fans what they really want to see
