MANILA, Philippines – Michael Koncz said the reaction of Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s camp on Manny Pacquao’s recent proposal has confirmed that the American boxer is not interested to fight the Filipino superstar.
Koncz cited that the reaction of Mayweather’s adviser Leonard Ellerbe on Pacquiao’s 55-45 split proposal reflected the real stand of Mayweather.
"I don't think Floyd wants to fight Manny to be honest with you. I'm not criticizing him one way or the other, whether he should or shouldn't. My opinion is -- I don't believe he wants to get in the ring with Manny," Pacquiao’s adviser said in Boxing Scene.
Pacquiao earlier said he is prepared to take the down side of the pay-per-view shares just to get the fight with Mayweather.
The Filipino fighter also said he no longer objects to Mayweather’s drug test demands.
“I told him I agree with 55 and 45 [split]," Pacquiao told ESPN.
However, Ellerbe was quoted a day later that Pacquiao is in no position to dictate the terms of the fight.
“Manny Pacquiao can’t tell Floyd Mayweather [expletive],” he said.
Pacquiao is due for a fourth face off against Juan Manuel Marquez on December 8.
