Floyd-Manny rematch tuloy para sa bagong casino
Posibleng matuloy ang matagal nang nilulutong rematch nina Floyd Mayweather Jr. at Manny Pacquiao dahil kailangan umano ng American undefeated champion ng pondo upang matuloy ang itinatayong casino sa Japan.
“Mayweather came to Tokyo to set up TMT Japan because of the Japan casinos that open in the next year,” pahayag ng TMT Hong Kong based promoter na si Jay Lau.
“There are casinos opening in Cambodia, Singapore and China as well. It means boxing will get more and more popular.”
“The Manny rematch is the biggest thing that can happen. I hope it does happen, it could be a big possibility that fight is the grand opening for the Japan casinos.”
Binunyag rin ng promoter na si Lau na hininto muna ni Mayweather na pansinin ang ibang potensyal na exhibition match upang tuunan ng pansin ang fighting senator.
“We were talking about an exhibition in China, a big event but not a recorded professional boxing fight. Something like Mayweather vs Tenshin in Japan,” dagdag nito.
“We spoke a bit about doing a special fight in China, but half way through he turned to the Pacquiao rematch so we stopped.” (Aivan Episcope)
