I think the Mayans were off by a few months. The world should’ve ended right after the Pacquiao fight. June 9th, 2012 was a horrible day for society. First, the legendary Canibus pulled out a notepad during a battle with Dizaster. He pulled out a notepad and read his rhymes right off it. To top it off, his rhymes were super weak, and Dizaster ripped him apart. After that, Manny Pacquiao got robbed. There was absolutely no way Timothy Bradley won that fight. The Juan Manuel Marquez decision was debatable, but this one wasn’t even close. Pac-Man was in control throughout the fight. HBO’s Harold Lederman was even talking about a sweep by Manny! I have no doubt that this fight was fixed. June 9th, 2012 you’re killin’ me.
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?
Rick Ross went to the Manny Pacquiao compound to meet the man himself before the big fight on Saturday night.
Ross said that he bet a million on Pacquiao winning the fight. Rozay is also walking Pacman into the ring.
Who do you think will win?
These are the special edition Manny Pacquiao Nike Air Trainers. Manny the “Pac-Man” Pacquiao is arguably the best pound for pound boxer in the World. The Filipino fighter is due to fight Ricky Hatton at the beginning of May. Now he has his own sneakers.
The trainers are focused more on athletic performance than style however they still look sick. They come in red, white and golden yellow representing Manny’s home country Phillipines.
Only 200 of these special edition sneakers are being made. According to his manager if Manny wins the fight they are likely to make more. I want one!
