CEBU CITY, Philippines – Boxing superstar Manny Pacquiao (67-7-2, 39KOs win-loss-draw record) issued yet another challenge to Floyd Mayweather Jr. (50-0, 27KOs) over twitter on Monday, October 28, 2019.
The fighting senator challenged Mayweather for the second boxing match in his latest video post on twitter while doing mitts with Chinese billionaire and co-founder of Alibaba.
“Floyd Mayweather if you want a real fight, fight me!” the reigning WBA welterweight champion said on the video.
However, there was some twist to the post as it also includes a challenge that if Mayweather wanted an exhibition match, the Chinese philanthropist is ready to fight him.
“If you (Mayweather) want an exhibition (fight), my guy, my friend, Jack Ma will take care of you. The real money king,” the 8-division world champion continued.
This video spectacle might have steamed from Mayweather’s statement that he is cooking an exhibition fight with Pacquiao in Tokyo.
“Money May, Money May, Money May — Money May all day. Betrk.com, that’s my team in Tokyo, Japan, TMT Tokyo, and of course, I’m Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather. What I’m working on right now is the Mayweather-Pacquiao exhibition right here in Tokyo, Japan. Stay tuned,” Mayweather in his Instagram post last month.
But while Pacquiao has fought six different opponents since their mega-million promotion back in May of 2015, Mayweather has only fought one serious boxing match, which is against Andre Berto for the WBC and WBA Welter belt in September 2015.
Since his 10 round TKO win over MMA champion Connor McGregor in August 2017, Mayweather fought Japanese kickboxing champion Tenshin Nasukawa in Saitama, Japan in December 2018.
Ma, meanwhile who is learning the ropes of boxing from Pacquiao, seems serious in his dare on Mayweather to fight him in an exhibition match.
“Yeah, I am ready. Any time, any place! Manny’s team is ready,” Ma said.
However, the tweet may have a double meaning as it also hinted that China’s richest man who
has a net worth of $41.1 billion, is he ready to promote the second much-awaited Pacquiao-Mayweather II?. RCM
