It was already reported that getting Floyd to sign a contract to fight against Manny will be difficult because both, Pacquiao and Floyd, believe that they deserve the much bigger share of the money and none of them guy is willing to settle for an equal share.
Roach says Mayweather needs to get off his high horse because Pacquiao doesn’t need him. He predicts a very tough negotiations process.
“It’s what the world wants to see. But the thing is, can you get him sign the contract? I don’t know. It’s going to be difficult because he thinks he’s going to get all the money,” said Roach to Dennis Principe of the Philippine Daily Inquirer. “If he thinks he’s going to get equal money with us, he’s crazy. He needs us, we don’t need him.”
Roach said the crowd for last weekend’s fight in Las Vegas is a prime example of Mayweather’s lack of drawing power. Pacquiao would bring in the entire crowd if the two of them fought.
“Let’s face it, the guy that puts asses on the seats is Manny Pacquiao. Mayweather doesn’t draw. Against Marquez the venue was 80% Mexican,” said Roach. Source: http://pacquiao-vs-cotto.cebuspace.com/
