Filipino boxing icon Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao challenged boxing’s pound-for-pound kingpin Floyd Mayweather Jr. to fight him in the ring without receiving any price money and all the proceeds will be donated to charities around the world.
In an interview with Sports Inquirer.net, Pacquiao dared Mayweather to put in their contract that they will not receive anything out of the fight.
I am ready to submit myself to any kind of stringent drug testing. Above all, I challenge him to include in our fight contract that both of us will not receive anything out of this fight. We will donate all the proceeds of the fight – guaranteed prize, should there be any, gate receipts, pay-per-view and endorsements – to charities around the world,” Pacquiao said.”
This is the toughest challenge issued by Pacquiao against Mayweather. This has been Pacquiao’s answer to Mayweather’s verbal assaults. Earlier, Mayweather called Pacquiao “a desperate dog” and “got 68 million problems” in an interview with Fighthype.com.
I’m excited to hear what will be Mayweather’s answer to this daring challenge by Pacquiao. If he thinks Pacquiao desperately needs money — then the challenge would tell us who really needs money.
I hope Mayweather answers this challenge seriously. And not to resort in his childish reasoning, but still ducking the man, who is more than willing to take nothing for giving the fight we fans want to happen.
