Merchant on Pacman-Floyd dispute

HBO commentator Larry Merchant says it’s hard to believe the dispute between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao is serious. Merchant told USA Today, “I thought it was just some gamesmanship by Mayweather who has a certain talent for mind games with opponents, creating conflict to help promote events. It appears that it has spiraled out of control. I couldn’t imagine why. First of all, since he thinks he’s going to win the fight and second of all because he’s going to make upwards of 30 million or 40 million dollars, how could you take it seriously? They seem serious about it. Almost as if they were saying Pacquiao can’t be this good on his own. Now it’s seems like it’s a bloodbath. There’s no precedent for fighters who have already decided how to divide the money then find issues that would break up a huge event. It’s hard to take seriously even if it appears to be serious.”
