Martinez practically begging Floyd for fight

March 22, 2012

Middleweight champ Sergio Martinez is willing to do what Manny Pacquiao doesn’t want to — offer a larger share of the fight purse to Floyd Mayweather, Jr. After Martinez took care of business against Matthew Macklin this past weekend,  he’s ready to fight in big money bouts.

Lou DiBella, Martinez’s manager, told Boxingscene, “We would fight Floyd [Mayweather] at 150…And we’ll give him 80% of the money. Mayweather can have 80% of the money and we’ll fight him as low as 150. Let’s do the fight, after he beats up Cotto.”

Martinez has been trying, rather begging, to score a big money fight with either Mayweather or Pacquiao since last year.
