How much money does Manny Pacquiao want or expect to face off against Floyd Mayweather? For Pacquiao, money is not the issue and the least of his worries. He has already offered to fight Mayweather for free (charity) - what Pacquiao wants more than the cash is legacy, making the fans happy and above all else, doing what is best for boxing.
Regarding the issue of money,
via his website, Pacquiao posted: "Mayweather can get the amount he wants. As early as January this year, I challenged him to a charity fight. Until now, he has not agreed to it. So, money is not the issue in our fight."
Pacquiao went on to add:
"This fight is about legacy, this is about making the fans happy and, above all, this is for the good of boxing."
I'm sure when and if these two finally fight (the dream seems to be heading for a possible May 2nd showdown), the issue will not be money, at least not for Pacquiao - but I don't expect Pacman to do it for free. I do expect that Mayweather will try and undercut Pacquiao's value significantly... and to be honest with you, I don't feel that will at all be fair. One thing seems for sure, with Pacman not taking the money issue seriously... tells you just how badly he wants this fight. If anyone is stopping this fight from happening, how can we not put the blame on Mayweather?
