Was Adrien Broner Wrong To Turn Down The Manny Pacquiao Fight Wanting More Money

July 29. 2016

Bob Arum and Manny Pacquiao

Top Rank boxing promoter, Bob Arum, revealed during an interview with BoxingScene.com that boxer Adrien Broner turned down the opportunity to fight boxing legend Manny Pacquiao. Broner wanted more money than Arum was offering. Arum stated Broner "priced himself out of the fight" and "I was dealing with Al Haymon on making that fight. Al tried but Broner was asking for crazy money that nobody can afford, so he is out and Manny is looking for another opponent."  

It is also being reported Broner wanted the bigger end of the 60/40 split in his favor and considering Pacquiao's position in boxing, that was not going to happen. Broner has been averaging $1,000,000 per fight and his rivals $50,000 (based on published purses). Therefore, Broner wanted well in excess of $1,000,000. Boxing fans wanted Broner to take the fight and are now accusing him on Twitter.com and Instagram.com of running from Pacquiao. Broner responded in anger to Arum statements, "F**k Bob Arum. Pay me what I deserve b***h." Such comments are not helpful. Arum is now trying to make a fight for Broner vs. his boxer Terence Crawford in November 2016.

Adrien Broner

Since Mayweather has retired and Pacquiao retired and un-retired (LOL) Manny is the biggest draw in boxing. Other champions such as Tyson Fury (heavyweight), Deontay Wilder (heavyweight) and Canelo Alvarez (middleweight) are pulling in strong viewing numbers and millions of dollars per fight.

The problem is Broner wants to be the new Floyd Mayweather, but he has not fought long enough to bring in that type of money from boxing ticket sales and pay-per-view. You have to get in where you fit in. Once you reach that level, then you can demand the huge sums your pay-per-view numbers warrant (oops, I said warrant and Adrien is in jail - I'm just playing Adrien, don't get mad).
