Manny Pacquiao Hopes Floyd Mayweather Bout Follows Timothy Bradley Fight


While he’s kicking up interest in his pending bout with Timothy Bradley, Manny Pacquiao continues to create buzz regarding the fight fans really want to see: Manny Pacquiao vs. Floyd Mayweather. Now, Pacquiao has discussed retirement, but has something to take care of before he goes.

Manny Jr., 11, recently told his father that he wants him to retire — but not before he takes care of the unfinished business everyone wants to see.

“I’m hoping for a November fight (against Mayweather),” said Pacquiao.

One of the many sticking points keeping the fighters apart has been how the revenue will be split for the fight. If ever there was a case for a 50/50, this would be it, but Mayweather hasn’t seen it that way.

“There is no justification for anything other than a 50-50 deal,” said Arum, referring to all sources of income. Pacquiao, who envisions retiring after two or three more fights, sold more tickets in the USA than any other fighter in each of the last two years.
