Ricky Hatton Vs Manny Pacquiao Back On
After much debate regarding the purse split Between Ricky Hatton and Manny Pacquiao, it seems like they might have come to an agreement. First though i must say, i can't beleive the greedyness of Manny Pacquiao, he stands to make millions from this fight, even if he got 30%!! The Ricky Hatton camp have offered him a 50/50 split, but he was still not happy!
Bob Arum is going to meet with Manny and hopefully get him to sign the contract for the fight. Manny Pacquiao is still said to not be happy with the contract even though he stands to make 8.1 Million GBP for fighting Hatton. Manny Pacquiao has now been offered 8.5 Million GBP, and a 52/48 Pay-per-view split. If he doesn't accept that he is either silly, or does not want to fight Ricky Hatton. The only other reason i can think of is, he's beleiving the hype, people who are close to him are telling him he can demand more because he is the golden boy of boxing at the moment.
This really is a huge payday, the biggest for both Manny Pacquiao and Ricky Hatton. Manny Pacquiao could no way get that payday from fighting anyone else other then Ricky Hatton. Manny Pacquiao should just accept the fight before the Hatton camp get sick of waiting, which they are.
If Manny Pacquiao does not decide quickly, there are other fights on the cards for Hatton. A possible rematch with Floyd Mayweather Jr or Hatton could even fight the winner of Juan Manuel Marquez Vs Juan Diaz. Boxing fans have a lot to look forward to.
