TMZ reports the same trunks bloodied during the fight last Saturday with Timothy Bradley were recently sold at auction for an absurd price:
The bloody boxing trunks Manny Pacquiao wore during his victory over Timothy Bradley this weekend have sold at a charity auction for a cool $40,000 … TMZ Sports has learned.
After the April 12th fight, Manny decided to donate his shorts, gloves and other boxing memorabilia — to help raise money for the victims of January’s super typhoon in the Philippines.
The trunks garnered such a handsome winning bid considering those in attendance had already parted with a reported $1,000 just to attend the event held in Beverly Hills.
TMZ also states the trunks were indeed bloodied, so that should come in handy if the winning party—who remains anonymous—ever decides to clone a world-class pugilist of its own.
The report also confirms the most important aspect of the night: Pacquiao did rock the mic.
“As for the rest of the guests, they definitely got their money’s worth — when Manny grabbed the mic and belted out a version of ‘Still’ by the group Hillsong United.”
