Manny Pacquiao was at the DOH earlier today making an advertisement for the said government agency. He did not ask for a monetary payment he only asked for an X-deal in making the advertisement. He only asked for several wheelchairs as a payment for Gensan's hospital. Of course the media was there to ask him about a boxing offer made by a well known mexican billionaire, Slim Helu. Helu wants Congressman Manny Pacquiao to bring his world class boxing skills in Mexico. He offered an initial 65 million dollars to Manny Pacquiao if he will fight Saul Alvarez in Mexico. He acts as if he's sure that Manny will lose to his favorite fighter. I bet he should think twice if he really wants the fight to happen. When you covert the 65,000,000 dollars to Philippine peso that's roughly a guaranteed 2,795,000,000. Manny would be an instant multi-billionaire if he would accept the offer. In the media interview, Manny said that he is willing to accept the offer.
Saul Lopez is the new Mexican pride in boxing. He is undefeated after 36 fights. He has an immaculate record of 36 wins-0 losses-1 draw. 26 out of those 36 wins came via knockouts. But Manny Pacquiao's trainer, the legendary Freddie Roach is not impressed on lopez's achievements. Roach said:
“Everyone is talking about how great Saul Alvarez is. I think Vanes Matirosyan would knock him out in one round. Let’s see how good ‘Canelo’ [Saul Alvarez] really is.”
Vanes Matirosyan is the new trainee of Roach. Many regard him as the prodigy because of his great potential to be a future world boxing champion. He's under the junior middleweight category.
If ever, this fight will be scheduled after Manny's bout against Juan Manuel Marquez.
