By Johnny Benz, Doghouse Boxing - Floyd "Money" Mayweather Jr. in a recent interview on the NBC Sports show, “Costas Tonight”, explained to host Bob Costas that he tried to land a fight with Manny Pacquiao, but wants to keep 100% of the PPV revenue.

Mayweather stated on the program: "I tried to get it done for May 5th. It would have been Mayweather versus Pacquiao but I got turned down." The deal breaker has reportedly been "Money" Mayweather's refusal to split the PPV profits 50/50. 

Mayweather went on to add: "How my deal is structured at this particular time in the sport of boxing, I keep 100 percent of the revenue. So why would I even give a guy 50-50 if I'm out there?"
