Manny Pacquiao is reported to have demanded a $20 million dollar purse to fight WBC/WBO super lightweight champion, Terence Crawford.

The report comes from an interview with Michael Koncz, Pacquiao’s advisor, that was conducted by the Manilla Bulletin.

“If it’s Crawford that Top Rank wants for Manny Pacquiao, then we’ll fight Crawford,” Koncz said. “But we want a guarantee of $20 million.”

Koncz also revealed that due to Pacquiao’s demanding role as a Philippine Senator, his next contest must take place during the Senate recess in April.
