Yup, that's what the news has reported today. The Manny Pacquiao vs. Ricky Hatton dream bout fight is off. The proposal of a 60-40 split in favor of Manny Pacquiao was rejected by the Ricky Hatton camp while a suggested 50-50 revenue split isn't into the likings of Manny Pacquiao either. Let's face the facts, Manny Pacquiao brings more PPVs (pay per views) based on stats from Manny's previous fights while the PPVs that was brought in by Ricky Hatton ranks way below the top 5 fights in recent memory. Manny Pacquiao has beaten an elite fighter named Oscar De La Hoya who was the top crowd getter for the PPVs. By defeating De La Hoya, Manny is now in the ranks of the elite and it's only fair and square that Manny gets the higher revenue than Ricky Hatton. It's not about the money, it's about respect demmit.

Manny Pacquiao has other prospects for his next fight. Manny doesn't need any money. He has nothing to lose even without a Ricky Hatton fight in his agenda. And what about Ricky Hatton's next fight? Hatton-Mayweather II? we all know who won in the Hatton-Mayweather I. What Ricky Hatton really needs is a fight with Manny Pacquiao to claim the pound-4-pound status. It's high time they respect the Pinoys !
