The American Press with ESPN | Mayweather Wins Over Boxer, Politician and and [ rumored to be ] PH Presidential Candidate Manny Pacquiao.
It’s All About The Money: Fans Worldwide Are Disappointed
The American critics, express that Manny may not have been focused due to his sprawling career, and current Philippines Presidential Campaigning. Now, with a mind-boggling $120 Million -give or take- Manny will be one of the Philippines newest cash-billionaires.Manny will have ample funds for his Presidential campaign. Mayweather, has another agenda as well, his now 48-0 winning spree has him just 1 notch away from his goal: To beat the “The Brockton Blockbuster” Rocky Marciano record 49-0 winning streak. Though “money” Mayweather is the worlds highest paid athlete, Manny has his eyes set on the PH Presidency.The battle for greatness, generated a live gate of approximately $74 million, and the pay-per-view television audience — at about $100 per buy — is expected to shatter the pay-per-view buy record (2.48 million USD) and pay-per-view revenue record ($150 million) set by previous Mayweather fights.In all, organizers expect the fight to generate some $400 million, and it was so big that it brought together rival networks HBO, which has Pacquiao under contract, and Showtime, Mayweather’s broadcast home.Mayweather, is expected to earn an estimated $180 million and Pacquiao around $120 million.
Many believe it was fixed, and that Manny should have won, however, it seems both Mayweather and Pacquiao got what they wanted from the deal…even if fans are left disappointed.
