Nelson Mandela’s Daughter Has to Pay $7.5 Million For Failed Mayweather vs. Pacquiao Fight
This is sort of funny because I have no clue what Mandela’s daughter was thinking.
Why in the world did she think she would be able to put together a Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight when no one else in the world has been able to for almost 3 years.
For her failed efforts she has to pay out some big money.
Nelson Mandela‘s daughter just lost a $7.5 million battle in court — because that’s how much a judge ordered her to pay an L.A. boxing promoter … after she allegedly flaked on a deal to organize a Pacquiao/Mayweather fight.
TMZ broke the story … a guy named Duane Moody sued Nelson’s daughter Zindziswa Mandela for $7.5 million earlier this year — claiming she hired him to organize a Pacquiao/Mayweather bout for her father’s birthday … but ultimately flaked on the deal … and the fight never materialized.
The fight was expected to rake in $100 million — and Duane claims Zindziswa promised to pay him a 15% commission on all proceeds … but fell off the radar as he was trying to organize the match.
Tim Tebow doesn’t have the power to get Mayweather vs. Pacquiao in the ring, so I doubt Duane Moody could. Considering he doesn’t promote Mayweather or Pacquiao it appears to me Ms. Mandela was duped.
But this is boxing, so it is to be expected.
