 Koncz Confirms: Mayweather Did Turn Down $65 Million - Boxing News

By Ronnie Nathaniels

MANILA—Floyd Mayweather Jr. has turned down a $65 million offer to f!ght pound-for-pound king Manny Pacquiao. Top Rank promoter Bob Arum told BoxingScene.com/Inquirer over the phone yesterday that the unprecedented offer was made by a Singapore group that handles special events and other projects for big casino complexes and other entities in the island state.

Arum said that Mayweather demanded $10 million even before he and the Singaporeans could discuss a possible Pacquiao f!ght.

“This guy (Mayweather Jr.) is totally out of his mind,” Arum said.


Arum said that the Singapore group flew to Los Angeles to negotiate. The Top Rank promoter added the group told him “they never experienced such craziness in their lives.”

Pacquiao’s adviser Michael Koncz confirmed the meeting, saying: “Mayweather wanted the $10 million up front before he would even talk to them.”

“There are no excuses this time, nobody to blame,” said Koncz. “He just doesn’t want to f!ght Manny. Where are you going to get $65 million? Even after tax and everything it would come down to $30 or 40 million and that’s a lot of money.”

You don't turn down that kind of paper in this economy. I guess he really can't live with potentially losing.

Probably for next year. Plus there is a clause that says that if Marquez loses his tune up f!ght then the whole thing is off, so this year would be a small possibility...

Arum just said a few days ago that he doesn't know who represents Mayweather, so unless he's talking to him personally, he's lying...which he does a lot of.

65 million isn't enough for his reputation...Floyd scared and will come up with another excuse/condition for Manny to follow.

Who the fu*k in Singapore would offer 130M(if it's a 50/50 split) for this f!ght anyway? Arum is a piece of sh*t.
