Neither have I.
The two best pound for pound fighters alive, which includes Timothy Bradley, may finally have an opening to broker a legit deal and stage what would be the biggest fight this sport has seen since the days of Mike Tyson.
Pacman has said he will take 45 percent and allow Fraud to take home 55 percent of the revenue. My calculations says that is enough money for Pacman to buy his native Phillipines.
Right now Pacman is promoting his fourth fight against Juan Marquez, scheduled for December 8.
Agreeing to this kind of split is, ostensibly, the potential last major obstacle for these two fighters to actually fight rather than talk, and waste their time against lesser opponents. Pacman has said he would agree to random drug testing.
Fraud is one of professional sports' best and most savvy media manipulators, but even he has to realize he has played this thing out for as long as it can go. By waiting and waiting and baiting and baiting the build up for this fight has reached its zenith, and a record-payday. The pay per view price on this could exceed $70 and people (me) will buy it.
But Pacman is 33 and Mayweather is 35. Both are just about near the end of their boxing prime, if they haven't already passed it.
If they fight early next year we will see two of the sport's best at their best. If they wait too much longer it will be one guy past his prime trying to cash a check.
