M. Akbar Muhammad, one of the principals of investors who proposes the fight be held in Abu Dhabi, said that they are willing to increase the initially offered $110 million to $120 million.
He said, Floyd is okay to fight Pacquiao on spring. That means the Abu Dhabi group of investors only have to tackle the amount to lure and have the fight be held in UAE.
With Pacquiao’s promoter, Bob Arum, they do not have any objection to have the fight be held in Abu Dhabi. However, he has doubts on the background of the Dubai group.
If this will be realized, this is the biggest payday for any single event in history of any sports.
