Manny Pacquiao willing to take less for Floyd Mayweather fight

Filipino boxing superstar Manny Pacman Pacquiao is now throwing everything under the table just to make sure a fight with undefeated American boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather Jr. will finally happen.

Pacquiao said he is open to have the smaller purse in their bout as long as Mayweather agrees to fight him anytime next year. Pacquiao’s business manager Eric Pineda said the initial talk for the realization of the long-awaited fight has already started and they are confident it could lead to a good result.

Pineda said money is less of Pacquiao’s concern since he is more focused on making the professional boxing fans happy by fighting Mayweather. A fight with Mayweather in 2015 became a big possibility after Pacquiao convincingly defeated Chris Algieri via a unanimous decision.

In their bout, Pacquiao floored Algieri six times to the delight of his boxing fans all over the world. Boxing fans and experts are all clamoring for a Pacquiao-Mayweather bout since the two are considered as two of the best boxers in the world today.

While Pacquiao is very vocal about his intention to fight Mayweather that is not the case for the latter. Sources said Mayweather is reluctant to fight Pacquiao since he is afraid to lose to the latter.

In the world of professional boxing Pacquiao is known for his speed and power and Mayweather for his head and shoulder defense.
