Pacquiao-Hatton Was On, Then Off, Now ON
It was on, then it was off, now it’s on again.
Word is Manny Pacquiao has accepted the contractual terms, and will glove up against Ricky Hatton on May 2 in Las Vegas.
Pacquiao (48-3) has accepted a $12 million dollar guarantee, and he will enjoy a 52-48 edge when the PPV monies are divvied up, according to Philboxing.com. PacMan has wanted a 60-40 split, and played hardball, as he let a deadline to return a signed contract to his promoter Bob Arum pass.
This spurred a salvo from Richard Schaefer of Golden Boy, which reps Hatton (45-1). He tried to spur Pacquiao by suggesting Hatton might take on De La Hoya instead. That seems to have worked.
