Atlas Thinks We Won't See Mayweather-Pacquiao

FNFTeddy Atlas said on the season opener of “Friday Night Fights” that he didn’t think we’ll see Pacquiao-Mayweather, because both fighters will be asking for too much money. It’s a matter of simple economics, he said.

Promoter Bob Arum, he said, would be more likely to make easier money with Pacquiao against someone who isn’t asking for $50 million for the honor. It won’t be that easy for Arum to make a profit when the two principlas both command such a pretty penny.

Atlas said he’d like to see Pacquiao fight Marquez again, and he thinks Marquez won the last one, no doubt. He isn’t itching for it, three times is maybe enough, but he really wouldn’t mind it.

I honestly really cant think of a fight this big that never got made. Both sides are to blame in this as i feel the fight should have happened over 2 years ago.

The fans are the ones who have lost out

I disagree with teddy...everybody and they mamna is going to watch this fight....giving the fighers 50 mil dollars is far from the problem everyone involved is going to make plenty of papper.

Wow! BOKSING! It is known, rightly so, as prize fighting, not pride fighting. Money May can make more moola by fighting Canelo Alvarez, so that is how it use be. Da Manny will make almost as much by fighting Cotto, Peterson or Bradley, so that is the way it should flow. You KNOW! Da Manny could even make 30mil by kicking crybaby Marquez's arse again. C'mon, people! Let's not act like we are insane. Boxing is BIG business -- da hurt bitnezz! Holla!

Wow! Ali Baba, Open SA-SE-ME on your __ brain. You got 100 billion neutrons in that joker. Try using about 10 of 'em for a change. Everybodee and dey momma know elementary finance, or should. Money May going against young, green-arse Canelo Alvarez is BIG, BIG, BIG! They got the honey and Carlos Slim got the money. They got the romance and Carlos Slim got the finance. They got the skills that will be a thousand and one thrills, and Carlos Slim doesn't care about any bills.

I just luv Uncle Roger May. "Most people don't know syet about boksin," he loves to say. And they don't know even more about the backroom BIG money part of it. Ali, WAKE DA DOUBLE FUDGE UP! Holla!

yes it is about the money ....while both fighters still have that "aura"....so make 30 million in an easy fight this spring and then 50 million in the fall ...their saving that fight cause it is money in the bank ...we lose cause they are not getting any younger ..would have been great to see them fight a couple of times but the risk was too great that one or the other would get blown out ..just not good business... because right ....it is prize fighting

Damn homie u r really slow r u telling me Mayweather will make more then 50mil fighting Canelo yes or no...miss me with all the bullshit
Is there anybody else on TSS that agrees with Radam G.

Radam G says:

Money May will MAKE more MOOLA fighting the red-headed hyped-up Canelo, than Money May would make fighting Da Manny.

Am I clear enought for you, homie Ali? Strange things are happening in the game all the time. Some real Twilight-Zone jive, no doubt! Holla!

miguel1 says:

If it doesnt happen in May, it wont happen. After May, figure that in training and jail time we wont see Mayweather again this year.

Pacqiauo outta take a bum fight in Manila in between if he needs cash, because he looked fallible last fight and if he fights Marquez again, he will look maudlin again. Plus the fight has already lost some lustre, the more time goes by, the less each can be garaunteed in my book.
