Manny Pacquiao Gets $65 Million Offer To Fight Saul Alvarez In Mexico


The richest man in the world, Carlos Slim Helú of Mexico has reportedly offered $65 million to Manny Pacquiao to fight in Mexico next year.

Slim is looking at Mexico’s current best welterweight fighter, Saul “Canelo” Alvarez as likely opponent for Pacquiao.

This was revealed on June 4 by Ilocos Sur Gov. Luis “Chavit” Singson, a long-time confidante of Pacquiao, who said that negotiations with Slim have already started.

And unlike Floyd Mayweather. Jr. who declined a $65 million offer by an interested party from Singapore to fight Pacquiao, Manny would not turn down Slim’s offer.

Saul “Canelo” Alvarez is the current WBC Light Middleweight champion. He is undefeated boasting a record of 36 wins with 26 coming by knockout. At only 20 years old and standing 5 ft 9 in, he poses legitimate threat to Pacquiao. Notable opponents he have defeated are Miguel Vázquez (current IBF lightweight champion), Carlos Baldomir (former WBC Welterweight Champion) and Matthew Hatton.

In a phone interview, Singson said that Slim had told him about his desire to host one of Pacquiao’s fights as a favor to his countrymen who have been looking to see Pacquiao fight on their soil.

Manny Pacquiao has a long history with Mexico as he has defeated a long line of great warriors who have Mexican blood – Oscar De La Hoya, Marco Antonio Barrera, Juan Manuel Márquez, Érik Morales, Antonio Margarito, Óscar Larios, David Díaz, Héctor Velázquez, Emmanuel Lucero and Jorge Solís.

He has been dubbed “The Mexicutioner” because of this.
