It's accurate. Uncle Bob gets a big cut of Pacman's earnings.

this

Mayweather maximizes his earnings by also acting as his own fight promoter through his company Mayweather Promotions. He collects all of the revenue from tickets, pay-per-view and sponsorships and covers the costs, including the purse for his opponent. His take home per fight is typically at least 50% higher than what his rival Manny Pacquiao earns.

Pretty smart buy him. and greedy
I dont see why other boxers don't do that.
Still cant stand the guy, lol

You have to be established to be able to do that. It takes a s**tload of money to be able to cover the costs for a fight. Oscar De La Hoya did it. Floyd's doing it. Miguel Cotto is trying to do it. Manny can easily do it but for some reason, he wants to be under Top Rank.

I think Pac is binded by Arum for about 2-3 more fights. I'm not sure. Another reason why I think Arum had a hand in that Bradley douchebaggery.

Sure. Why not just say what you want to say. Quit beating around Reggie Bush.
