Atlas Thinks We Won't See Mayweather-Pacquiao
Teddy 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.
