Floyd Mayweather
The King of Boxing Floyd” Money” Mayweather

In a fantastic interview  with Yahoo!Sports’ Kevin Iole, the man facing Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, Floyd “Money” Mayweather, Jr spoke about the fight everyone wanted to see . . . three years ago.

“Everybody’s like, ‘Aw, Pacquiao,’ but I’m just letting you know he’s not getting a fight with me,” Mayweather said. “The only way he’s getting the fight with me is if he signs with Mayweather Promotions. He’s got to give me fights with Mayweather Promotions. If he don’t give me no fights under Mayweather Promotions, then he’s not getting the fight. That’s how it is working now, because the ball is in my court. The ball has been in my court. I have been the A side.”

Mayweather/Pacquiao was once the biggest fight of the century. But a failure to agree on drug testing, venue or a the financial split ultimately derailed the megabout. And then this happened:

Manny Pacquiao

When Marquez knocked out Manny Pacquiao, the megafight lost it’s luster. If there was ever a question of who had leverage, there isn’t one now.

“I went to Pacquiao at one particular time and I offered him $40 million and I told him, ‘I will wire you $20 million within 48 hours.’ He told me he wanted 50-50 and he got off the phone. Some guy named Michael Koncz [Pacquiao’s adviser] came down here. I don’t know who he is. He looks like a little weasel. He came down here, was in my gym and talked to me. He said, ‘If you want the Pacquiao fight, you talk to me.’ I said, ‘What about Top Rank?’ He said, ‘I run all his business.’ That’s what he told me. I’ve got everything recorded, everything on film.”

Will Mayweather-Pacquiao happen in 2015? Will you care? Only time will tell.

    At one point I did wanna see Floyd & Pac Man in the ring now I’m just like fuck it because it took to long and He got put on His back He should have just took the $40 and ran with it see that’s were that greedy shit get you I look at it like this if it do happen Floyd should only give Him $20 because its a waste of time its to many good up coming fighters out there that will put on a good show for the people And Hank lundy one of them just saying Floyd don’t waste your time and the fans time on this Pac Man has been shit………

    Mayweather knows that IF that fight happens it’ll be the biggest fight in the past 5yrs and bring in the most money in boxing history. He’ll be getting paid after he gets off his back.

      Why do you believe pac will win after marquez showed for the final time that pac leaves himself exposed way too many times?what is the point of seeing this fight now….I believe your just another person who wants to see mayweather lose. Sad bro!

        The reason is because styles make fights, and paquiaos style isn’t the best against marquez just like mayweathers style will have problems against paquiaos style
