Wow… Way to go big man, now that’s how you issue a challenge.
The self-proclaimed pound for pound champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. called out Manny Pacquiao yesterday via the social networking site.
Who knew that Twitter was the new place to make multi-million dollar deals?
Tweet #1: “Manny Pacquiao I’m calling you out let’s fight May 5th and give the world what they want to see,”
Tweet #2 “My Jail Sentence was pushed back because the date was locked in. Step up Punk”
Mayweather and Pacquiao are arguably the two best in the sport boxing, each boxer has confirmed they want the fight to happen at some point however neither boxer nor their management teams have agreed to a deal that could turn out to be the high yielding purse in the history of the sport.
Mayweather was originally scheduled to begin a three month jail sentence on January 6th however a Las Vegas judge agreed to delay his sentence because of the economic impact Mayweather’s fight is expected to have on the Las Vegas economy regardless of who he fights on May 5th at the MGM Grand Garden.
