Manny Pacquaio is set to receive 40 percent of the revenue generated from his 2 May fight against Floyd Mayweather, who will collect 60 percent from the fight of the century at the MGM Grand.
But, the American feels that the Filipino might not receive the figure, which he deserves. Mayweather has rather taken a dig at Top Rank CEO, Bob Arum, who is Pacquiao's promoter stating the boxing company has not treated the eight-division world champion with respect.
"Financially, I don't think Top Rank treated him right for this fight," Mlive quoted Mayweather as saying.
"I'm just saying, I don't really know his (purse) number -- I kind of know his number, but I don't.
"They said that, from what I hear, the money will be wired to him. You hear different things like that.
"But I don't have anything against Bob (Arum). They run their business the way they run their business, I run my business the way I run my business."
The American and the Filipino are poles apart with contrasting lifestyles, with Mayweather known for his lavish lifestyle and Pacquiao who has a strong Christian belief.
Just a few days ago, the Filipino stated he was not too hung up on the the 60-40% split from the bout, with his priority being the fans. Pacquaio is expected to make around $100 - $120 million from the fight and one will not be surprised one bit, if a share of the purse is given to charity.
But, Arum feels Mayweather should keep his thoughts to himself.
"Floyd should mind his own business," Arum said. "I am not going to reduce this to a dialogue one way or the other with Floyd."
"You saw at the press conference that Manny had today, there wasn't one bad thing about Mayweather. We're not going to say one bad thing about Mayweather, we're not going to answer him back or so forth. He's the master of trash talking. He's not going to upset Manny Pacquiao. And I'm not going to respond to him."
