After losing to Conor McGregor, Manny Pacquiao has set a price for his next bout.
Manny Pacquiao wants to fight again and has demanded a large sum of money to do it.
Manny Pacquiao has stated that his next fight will be for a world title, and that he expects to earn $40 million from whoever he fights. Pacquiao was supposed to fight Conor McGregor, but his loss to Dustin Poirier put an end to that.
Pacquiao was preparing to face McGregor in his next bout in the ring.
After defeating Keith Thurman in 2019, the 42-year-old Filipino legend is looking for his next opponent.
McGregor was ready to engage in a boxing ring for the second time after losing to Floyd Mayweather in 2017.
Those plans were postponed when McGregor was knocked out by Poirier at UFC 257.
Poirier outclassed McGregor, who later stated that he shouldn’t have utilized ‘The Diamond’ as a warm-up for Pacquiao.
Pacquiao’s defeat is said to have cost him “tens of millions of dollars” in possible fight earnings.
Now, the WBA welterweight champion is looking for a new opponent, but he still wants to fight for the same amount of money.
“I like to fight someone who has a title,” he told the Daily Tribune.
“We promised Bob that I would receive $40 million and [Terence] Crawford would receive $10 million.
“I am willing to fight anyone. You know me, I’m not afraid of a challenge. “Bring ’em on!” exclaims the crowd.
Meanwhile, McGregor plans to return to mixed martial arts and fight Poirier for the third time this summer.
In the aftermath of his second-round loss, the ‘Notorious’ declared his desire to fight Poirier again, and UFC president Dana White announced the fight for the summer on Saturday.
While no date has been established for the bout, White has intimated that there are few obstacles in the way.
At UFC 258, White commented, “They both want it.”
“So when you have two men who are as passionate about the trilogy as those two are, we attempt to make it happen.
“This summer,” says the narrator, “it will happen.”
