Ringstar Boxing, Asia’s fastest growing sports media property, headed by its Founder & CEO Scott Farrell, has just announced his intention to co-produce Manny Pacquiao’s next bout in Manila, Philippines, early next year.
If it happens, this can be an event which can see the boxing champ defend his recently won world welterweight belt, just over a week ago in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Wherein he lorded over Argentinian boxer Lucas Matthysse, who got TKO’d, two (2) minutes forty-nine (49) seconds into the seventh (7th) round, at the Axiata Arena, in downtown Kuala Lumpur.
According to Scott Farrell, “I would like to bring the ‘Thrilla’ back to Manila, like it was back in 1975, with Muhammad Ali. I want to give the people of the Philippines the chance to watch their own hero and boxing legend, Senator Manny Pacquiao defend his belt, or fight for another world title on his home ground.”
“Let’s make this even bigger and more productive and donate all ticket sales to the Manny & Jinkee Foundation and really make everything about his fight a positive step forward, not only for the sport, but also for the people of the Philippines. I have worked tirelessly to put Asian boxing on the world map. This would be another gigantic step in my mission…come on MP promotions let’s sit down and discuss something truly incredible and very achievable”, ends Farrell.
