Damn I hate to talk about Floyd/Manny. . . It has been run into the ground. . . But I just wanted to know what's up with the favoritism fighthype shows towards Floyd? Why sacrifice journalistic integrity just to try to help your favorite fighter out? Ben Thompson is a good writer, who is able to convey and express his opinions very well; indeed, a very well spoken gent. . . But I just can't help but notice how every article is pro-Floyd?

I mean, yeah Im sure Arum isn't helping the issue, but WHY WOULD FLOYD demand more than 50%? Wasn't that agreed upon ages ago? How can he still be pointing the finger at Arum, and not placing majority (or at least half of it) on Floyd himself?

You can make good, logical arguments for either side being more deserving of the lion's share. . . but they essentially negate each other out, and unless they want to do a winner take all, or winner take lion's share, THE ONLY LOGICAL split is 50/50 on everything. . .

Please don't "ban" me for this. . . I really just want to know why. . .

Mannys making 6 to 7 mil per fight and Floyds making 40 to 50. If I was Floyd I wouldnt give Manny 50% of shit. Somebody has to pay Arum. Hes Mannys promoter it should be out of Mannys end. From a business prospective it makes sense. As a fight fan it pisses me off.

when u put their numbers side by side against the same opposition...it's no contest. pac doesn't even come close. he's already said publicly he would fight for less. he doesn't deserve 50% in my opinion. floyd should stick to his guns on that. pac is not in the drivers seat...especially after what should have been a loss to marquez. pac loses his next fight. he's not beating cotto, bradley, marquez ...peterson is his best shot.

as a fan, i've given up on this fight happening. anyone that thinks arum would serve up his manufactured prized cash cow to "the one who got away" is living in fantasy land. it's not going to happen.

i'm more interested in seeing floyd/cotto after cotto avenges his loss to pac.
