Pacquiao Stands at 60-40 Share with Hatton

I am glad that despite the fact that the useless Bob Arum, promoter of Manny Pacquiao said according to some reports that he is content with the 50-50 Hatton camp offer, Manny Pacquiao stood by his ground to want to take the fight only if he gets 60 % of the fight revenue. This is just the right thing to do especially if you have a promoter that cannot even stand for you or your rights knowing that you have all the edge to make your bid. Pacquiao vs Hatton is not that too good a match unlike if it goes with Mayweather whom we know defeated Hatton convincingly. So Pacquiao earns to take more than the defeated Hatton and of less than the best pound for pound fighter in the world.

What does this Bob Arum think about Pacquiao? He must be nuts to go for a 50-50 when he knows that Pacquiao earned to take more than Hatton if this fight ever pursues. Anyway, promoters are just promoters and just like the past promoters that Manny Pacquiao had gotten to his side, they all seem to just want to get their share of the revenues from the now best pound for pound fighter in the world.

If Pacquiao goes along with the 50-50 offer, this fight would make him seem, look and feel desperate to fight Ricky Hatton when he is not and should be not. He can take anybody he likes and he can actually choose whoever he wants to fight. Doesn't this Arum know that? Bob Arum is a shame being a promoter on the side of Pacquiao and if I were him, I'd dump this old man. He seem just after the money and not to protect and take good care of the status and prestige of his fighters being a promoter.

It's a shame having a promoter such as Bob Arum if the reports are telling the truth that he would go for a 50-50 for the Pacquiao vs Hatton fight. I also be this will have its effect for people who will be vying for early Pacquiao-Hatton tickets.
