By Johnny Benz, Doghouse Boxing - Freddie Roach recently told Ring Magazine's Lem Satterfield that Manny Pacquiao would gain more by fighting Floyd "Money" Mayweather Jr., instead of Juan Manuel Marquez for a fourth time.  Financially speaking, Pacquiao would make a huge sum against Marquez, but that sum would be dwarfed by what he stands to make should he face of Mayweather.  Check out these numbers...

In regards to who Pacquiao would gain more from fighting (Marquez or Mayweather), Roach took the financial aspect of it, stating: "Financially, I think that you’re going to get about $30 million with the one guy, Marquez, and you’re going to get $100 million with the other guy, Mayweather."

I mean really, none of us had to be A + students in math to see what fight makes more money sense at this time. For instance, just say Pacquiao did fight Marquez next and lost?  Wouldn't it be safe to assume that a ton of interest in a Mayweather fight would dwindle over night?  

Roach went on to add to the publication: "So why wouldn’t you take the $100 million?"  (Hey that is all I am saying!) Roach added: "You could fight Marquez any time. I mean, he’s always there. The thing is that I don’t think that it’s a very hard decision."

Really, it shouldn't be a hard decision to make.  If the money isn't loud enough, the fan's beating the drums for Mayweather vs. Pacquiao certainly has been deafening.

On another note, $100 million.... seriously, how much are boxing fans going to bleed out of pocket for this?  (Thankfully advertising and tv deals will help out.... because the fans don't need to take the grunt of the load here!) Also remember these were numbers that Roach "thinks" are possible. Who knows for sure? Perhaps Bob Arum?
