A lot of people are interested in Floyd Mayweather’s finances (IRS, Baby Mamas, Security Guards & etc), but could it be that Pacquiao is in worst financial shape?

A couple of things to remember.  Pacquiao is promoted by Top Rank and because of a legal dispute Golden Boy also gets a percentage of his purses.  Freddie Roach is one of the most expensive trainers in the business and Pacquiao’s entourage is bigger than Mayweather’s crew.

The best way I can explain is like this this Pacquiao would be a like a great rapper who doesn’t own any of his publishing and is signed to Bad Boy  whereas Mayweather owns his own label, masters and just pays for distribution.

If they are both making 20 million a fight after everyone is paid Mayweather will always keep more money in his pocket than Pacquiao.  So I am not surprised by this quote from Freddie Roach.

Roach tellingly explained to Brin-Jonathan Butler: “He’s broke because of that and all the people he flies around to his fights. He goes through money like you wouldn’t believe. He can’t say no. Of course he’ll have to keep fighting. He does now. He won’t be able to stop – it’s his life.”

Is it possible that Pacquiao needs Mayweather more than Mayweather needs Pacquiao just from a financial perspective?

Something to think about as we inch closer to their superfight.
