There are several attempts to make the dream fight happen. After the Pacquiao-Cotto fight and the Mayweather-Marquez fight last year, boxing fans are hungry for a Pacquiao-Mayweather fight to happen. But many issues had yet to be agreed upon between both parties, such as the “purse split” and the controversial “random blood testing” for both boxers.

According to, Mayweather always wanted the biggest share of the fight, not even considering that Pacquiao is the World’s Number One Boxer according to Yahoo Sports and Ring Magazine. But Mayweather has also his own reasons of demanding for a bigger share, since most of his fights, those events are shall we say “revenue-generating” events, and attracting even celebrities from Hollywood. A 50-50 split, or a 60-40 split in favor of Floyd, what can we say? Many fans have been criticizing Pacquiao for his refusal of drawing blood for drug test, as a result, Pacquiao agreed to Mayweather’s term of random blood testing before the fight. After settling to Mayweathers’ demands, Floyd said that he is not interested of boxing of this time, and is only focusing on his vacation. This is a good call to everyone that Floyd Mayweather is apparently to be running away from Pacquiao and is concerned of tarnishing is unblemished boxing record. This, as a result, Mayweather is moved to 2nd best pound per pound fighter in Yahoo Sports, and placing Pacman as number one.

The biggest reason that the Manny Pacquiao-Floyd Mayweather bout will take place is the big money on the line. The $40 million dollar guarantee Floyd Mayweather offered Manny Pacquiao is generous, considering the financial investment required by both men to make the super fight a reality.

With at least a two-fight series between the two fighters almost guaranteed once they finally do get a deal agreed upon, both fighters could make as much as most top fighters make in their career in just two fights.
