Pacman Advisor Koncz Hits Back at Floyd, Implies Money's The Ducker..WOODS


TSS LOGO!Floyd Mayweather told Boxing Scene today that Manny Pacquiao ducked a superfight, and Pacman advisor Michael Koncz takes issue with that charcterization.

Koncz told TSS that Pacquiao initiated talks with Mayweather; conceded on revenue issues; offered flexibility on the date of the fight; and acquiesced to Floyd's demands on drug testing.

More specifically, Koncz said Floyd did indeed offer a guarantee to Pacquiao of $40 million. Pacman, after he sought a 50-50 split,  countered that, with an offer of a split of revenue. That offer would potentially give Floyd $10-20 million more than Manny, because Pacquiao said that the winner of the bout would get the lion's share, 55% of the revenue from the pay-per-view sales, and the loser would get 45%.

“If Mayweather is the best, as he says, then he would be getting between $10 and $20 million more than Manny,” the advisor said. “Does that seem like we're ducking the fight? I don't think so.”

Manny also got Bob Arum to guarantee Mayweather a lump sum of $50 million, apart from the overage from the PPV sales. The advisor told me Manny was also guaranteed a $50 million flat fee, but that he indicated to Mayweather that Floyd could get an extra $10 million out of the PPV sales.

Koncz also said that Pacman gave in to Floyd on the testing matter, that Manny said he would agree to testing any time, any place. He only asked that there be no testing on the day of the fight.

To all those concessions, Koncz said, Mayweather didn't budge an inch. He said that Mayweather stuck to the offer he stated to Pacman on the phone two weeks ago, a guarantee of $40 million.

“There's been no give-and-take from Mayweather,” Koncz continued. “So who's ducking the fight?”

Readers, what's your take? You guys know that I have written repeatedly that both men need to show a willingness to compromise. Sounds to me like Manny is in that mode more than Floyd. What's your read?

Any way! Pretty Boy Floyd! Pretty Boy.....PRETTY BOOOY and his dad -- Pops JOOOY! Talkin' 'bout Buffalo Sol-DIEEERRR! Born in America...Got PUNK by a PINOOOOOY... You STANKS -- I mean Yanks!...won't ever bow down. Your foolish pride tells you not to ever admit that Money May is a scared-of-the-PacMan CLOWN! Da Manny would kayo dat moola-loving A$$. And on those Y faces, there will be quite a frown. Muthasuckas and knuckleheads would be acting as if they've been sprayed by tear gas. So the reporting is hardcore that Stormyweather -- I mean Mayweather -- picked Miguel Cotto. Well don't be surprised that for that moola-luvin' a$$ Money May, MC may have a perfectly planned MOJO, BABBBBEEEEE! Cuban Doc Diaz was in the last corner that officially beat Money May. YOU KNNOOOOOWWWWW The O GAMES held in Atlanta, G-A. I won't be surprised of the Cuban doc's magic. One more time, for Money May, it could just be a tragic. Holla!
