Mayweather Turns His Nose on Pacquiao, Even at $50 Million

Watch Pacquiao vs Mosley Fight Live Stream - Proper decision-making much? It seems like Floyd Mayweather Jr seriously needs a crash course regarding the matter. Michael Koncz, who is Manny Pacquiao’s adviser, confirmed in an interview that Mayweather not so long ago turned down a $50 million guaranteed wade of cash to lock knuckles with Pacquiao. And Koncz may be correct, as he believes that Mayweather may have other proud reasons to not fight Manny even with that guaranteed purse.

"A country that I won't name offered us $100 million to bring the Mayweather fight there. So we, in turn, offered $50 million to Mayweather as a guarantee. If the pay-per-view comes in higher, Manny and Mayweather would make more. He refused the $50 million. It means he doesn't want to fight Manny at this point in his career. Very simple," Koncz explained.

Considering this report is correct, and then it only proves one thing: Mayweater may be scared actually to fight Pacquiao, despite his sarcastic gestures toward the Filipino fighter.

Now, what doesn’t make any clear sense to me is that why someone nicknamed “Money” would turn down such enormous sum of cash for a 36-minute fight? Perhaps he’s a bit penny-ante about it because on the other hand, losing against Pacqiao (which is not impossible) would cause him great humiliation.

Having Mayweather to turn down on such a big event would definitely mean something’s up? Fear? Pride? Maybe even comic relief for people who thinks Money just wouldn’t take it if he’s defeated by the People’s Champ? You decide! For now, enjoy and wait for the upcoming Pacquiao vs Mosley Live!
