There’s someone looking to shatter Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s perfect 50-0 record inside the ring.
And if by chance Mr. “Money” Mayweather entertains this challenger, saying it would be a copious affair would be the understatement of the year.
Jack Ma, China’s richest man put out a challenge to the undefeated former Ring Magazine Pound-for-Pound king, working the mitts in a now-viral video showing the Alibaba founder with Filipino boxing legend Manny Pacquiao as his trainer.
\”Floyd Mayweather, if you want a real fight, fight me. If you want an exhibition, my guy, my friend, Jack Ma will take care of you, \” Pacquiao said in the video shared in the fighting Senator’s social media accounts.
The funny clip, seen by millions as of this writing poked fun at the American boxer as he was remembered to have declined a bout with Manny numerous times at the height of their respective careers.
Only in 2015, however, was their fight dubbed “Fight of the Century” finally pushed through but offered nothing close to its billing. Manny later on admitted of nursing a shoulder injury coming into the fight which he eventually lost via unanimous decision after 12 uneventful rounds.
\”The Real Manny Team,” which the duo calls their camp, is a definite jab to Mayweather’s The Money Team Brand.
\”I am ready. Any time, any place, Manny\’s team is read,\” Ma said continuing a barrage of awkward punches to Manny’s mitts.
Pacquiao, coming off of an unanimous decision victory himself against Keith “One Time” Thurman, eyes another fight in the pipeline, while still floating the idea of a rematch with Floyd.
Reports say a Pacquiao-Errol Spence Jr. could be in the books but the latter’s vehicular accident could be mean a snag in that proposed matchup.
On the other hand, Mayweather, earned a whopping 9 million dollars in just two minutes when he dissected Tenshin Nasukawa in Japan last year.
A fight with one of the world’s leading billionaires might entice him though. We’ll have to see.

Francis Ngannou cries ‘deception’ vs Anthony Joshua camp

Former UFC fighter Francis Ngannou accused AJ camp of ‘trickery’ when he suffered devastating knockdowns in the first and second round last March 8, 2024 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

The MMA fighter and former UFC heavyweight champion said that AJ camp sabotaged him by letting him go early in the arena.

“We both fought at 3am. What I think, something that’s happened is that they get me to the arena very early. Like my pickup time was 10.30pm to go to the arena. And then when we get to the arena, they tell us that we are scheduled around 1.45am. right?” Ngannou blurted.

He believed that he came exhausted, which resulted in his humiliating defeat.
