Working With Pacquia0 And His Current Relationship With Floyd Mayweather:
“Floyd is a friend of mine. I look at Floyd like he’s my younger brother. He earns so much that he just spends it. He just run around and spend it; he spends it and do what he want, so there’s no urgency to anything. And then when the communication breaks and it starts to not be… look, my concept of TMT is the fights you want to see. It’s Floyd, Manny Pacquiao, the fight.”

I raised it twice for my film production company. That’s what it would cost for the fight.”“I don’t think so [in terms of it jeopardizing his relationship with Floyd]. I think he’ll go ‘I wish him luck.’ … It’s not like I’m not in communication with him. I texted him and told him everything.”
