The ‘Avengers’ Are Placing Their Bets on Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao Fight
It looks like Thor and Captain America from the “Avengers: Age of Ultron” are placing their bets on the upcoming Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao fight, which has been called the “Fight of the Century.” Who are the “Avengers” stars wagering on? Read on to learn more about this scoop.
News of Floyd Mayweather finally battling Manny Pacquiao shook the entire boxing world. The Mayweather-Pacquiao fight has been one of the most anticipated battles in the history of boxing. Now that the fight is nearing, the “Avengers: Age of Ultron” stars have placed their bets on what they call as the “Fight of the Century.”
“If we’re going to bet, we’re going to make a wage on the Floyd Mayweather-Pacquiao [match],” Chris Hemsworth said, according to The Philippine Star.
Hemsworth, who plays Thor in the “Avengers” film, said that he is placing his bet on the pound-for-pound boxing champion, Manny Pacquiao.
Chris Evans, who plays Captain America, on the other hand, said that he is wagering on Mayweather.
Hemsworth initially proposed that they wager one million, but later added the word “cents” when he realizes that he gave quite a huge number. He added that whoever loses should give out one million cents and do a number of push-ups. Hemsworth later on concluded that if Evans wins, he can get one of his children, but if he wins, he will get Evans as his fourth child.
While Evans and Hemsworth are joking around, it looks like their film, “Avengers: Age of Ultron” has its own battle against the Pacquiao-Mayweather match. According to Tech Times, the “Avengers: Age of Ultron” opens on the same weekend as the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight.
The outlet cited that the match could potentially lead to losses for the Marvel film, especially because viewers would want to stay home and watch the most awaited “Fight of the Century.” The outlet noted, though, that the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight could only interfere with the Marvel film on May 2, but the film could regain any losses from in the succeeding days.
