Pacquiao Says He’s Available 24/7 for Mayweather’s Call
Mayweather did call once and offered Pacquiao $40 million, an offer that Pacquiao declined. That was understandable at the time because they were both big time draws and a 50/50 split would have been fair.
In retrospect, maybe Pacquiao should have stayed on the line a little longer to see if they could have worked something out, because now Mayweather holds all the leverage forcing Pacquiao to wait for a phone call.
Here is what he said while on Olbermann courtesy of Boxing Scene.
“All I can say, our hotline is open 24 hours,” Pacquiao said to Sports Illustrated. “If he calls us and let us know, if he wants to fight, then the fight will be on….[I will take the call] 24/7.”
First, Pacquiao has to beat Tim Bradley (not a guarantee) and Mayweather has to beat whoever he decides he is going to fight, but I wouldn’t hold my breath on them fighting each other any time soon.
