Pacman vs. Money - "I would pay any amount of money to be at that fight"
By Johnny Benz, Doghouse Boxing (Oct 4, 2012)
By Johnny Benz, Doghouse Boxing. Actor Liam Neeson stars this weekend on the big screen in "Taken 2".
If you watched the first movie, you'll remember just how great a flick
it was. I am expecting that a lot of people who are fans of the first
movie and Neeson's acting, will line up for tomorrow's opening. Ahead
of "Taken 2" hitting theaters, Neeson sat down with ESPN and discussed
tons of topics related to boxing. Of course the hot issue of Manny
Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. came up.
When asked which were
the boxers from today that Neeson enjoys watching, the vetran Hollywood
actor stated: "(Manny) Pacquiao is still amazing. He's getting a little
bit older, but in the championship rounds from 9 to 12 he just gets
stronger and stronger and stronger. That's the sign of a great champion.
I think Floyd Mayweather Jr. is terrific. I think he's scared of
Pacquaio, though. I don't think it's about money. I don't mean he is
scared, like terrified of his life, but I think he thinks he can see in
Pacquiao someone that could beat him."
So what would Neeson's reaction be if Manny Pacquiao vs. Floyd "Money" Mayweather
Jr. was announced? "Oh, I would absolutely flip my seat," stated Neeson,
adding: "I would pay any amount of money to be at that fight."
Well, let's be fair, who wouldn't pay top dollar to watch that fight in person!?
Regarding Taken 2:
The movie is about Retired CIA operative Bryan Mills and his wife, who
are in Istanbul and are taken hostage by the father of a kidnapper Mills
killed while rescuing his daughter. Like I said, the first movie was
great, but you already know that (because who hasn't seen it!?) So far
"Taken 2" has gotten very strong reviews.
