Report: Pacman-Hatton purse likely at 50-50

MANILA, Philippines - Bob Arum hinted at an even split in earnings between his client Manny Pacquiao and British slugger Ricky Hatton, the Los Angeles Times reported on Wednesday.

Besides the venue - it's still a tossup between MGM Grand and Thomas and Mack Center - that's about the only matter left unsettled in an almost-certain slugfest between the two power-punchers. It's going to be on May 2 and in Las Vegas.

Pacquiao got roughly 33 percent of the total earnings when he fought Oscar de la Hoya in December. Pacquiao, considered boxing's biggest draw besides De la Hoya, was initially pegged to get a higher take in the Hatton tussle.

Because Arum has been impressed with Hatton's star appeal in his home country, the purse could be divided equally.

"We might do a million homes on pay-per-view in England," Arum told Bill Dwyre of the LA Times. "You have to give Hatton some credit for what he brings to the table."

Arum also added in the same report that the promotions could begin in England. "We'll have some (darts) matches over there," Arum said, referring to both boxers' proficiency in the recreational sport. - GMANews.TV
