50 Cent Calls Out Manny Pacquiao At CES
As you may know, 50 Cent, and Floyd Mayweather are real good friends. So while promoting his SMS Audio headphones at this years CES, 50 brings out Floyd, and calls out Manny Pacquiao.
FYI Pacquiao’s camp has accepted Floyd’s challenge but will not fight him on May 5.
Pacquiao’s financial adviser Michael Koncz told The Associated Press on Thursday that a 45,000-seat boxing arena being built in Las Vegas won’t be finished before the end of May and staging the Pacquiao-Mayweather fight in a smaller venue is “foolish from an economic standpoint.” The MGM Grand seats about 17,000, which could fetch around $20 million in sales, but the larger arena could raise an additional $30 million, Koncz said. “Why would I tell Manny to fight on the 5th and throw away a percentage of 30 million? That’s crazy,” he said. Top Rank promoter Bob Arum has told the Philippines’ GMA television the only reason the fight won’t happen is if there is an “economic problem.” He said the fight “could happen very, very easily” at the end of May — enough time to build the outdoor arena “the fight so badly needs.”
So now they’re fighting about the date, and the venue. Will this fight ever happen?
