Let's hear what your thoughts are on the possible stumbling blocks or possible issues related to the fight in question.. let's start with revenue split.  I think 50/50 is fair.  If you think otherwise state why you think what side deserves more than the other, and what percentage.

Apparently Mr. Money doesn't think 50/50 is fair.  I think he needs to get off his high horse and take 50/50 and MAKE THE FIGHT.  As of now he has just proved to me that he doesn't really want the fight.  As this fight hangs in the balance this type of useless posturing is uncalled for.  No matter how justified it is.  And quite frankly, I'm not so sure Floyd is really an equal draw to what Manny is.  For all intents and purposes, MANNY could damand 51% and higher.  So Floyd, if you read this, know this.. we want this fight, stop being a girl, drop the egotistical bullshit and take the 60 million, cause all us fans want is a friggin fight.  Seriously, this is a jolke.

Yes, I want this fight to happen !!!  I will UNLOAD on Floyd to Win at anything 2/1 or less.  As should you Frank, even if you hate his guts as I do.  If you wanna squeeze a lot of juice from a floyd bet, you could go floyd by decision, but i'm fearful what I might see in the later rounds if PacMan cant find floyd at all. If his gameplan falls flat, he could wind up like big punching Ricky Hatton. That my friend is a closer possibility to happening than floyd losing this fight.

Although...........for a fight of this magnitude.  Ask the sharpest of sharps, and they'll tell you to sprinkle a little on the draw.  Only reason is the crooks in boxing sometimes rear their ugly heads and start thinking of the money to be made off a rematch.  And in this case, probably the closest thing to a rematch "clause" as you might say, would be to let NEITHER guy walk away with a victory....

Regardless, thanks for the post Frank, I enjoy reading your posts.  There's not enough "intelligent" conversation on this site, regarding boxing, so I really do appreciate your posts.  And remember, if ever any of my comments offend you, please note it would be in good, maybe heated debate form, NEVER anything personal.
