MANNY PACQUIAO and Floyd Mayweather are once again going head-to-head – in competing for fans’ affection.
Both boxers have signed up to the personalised shout-out service Cameo.
Die-hard fans are given the chance to pay for their hero to deliver them a birthday message, motivational speech or just a simple ‘good luck’.
Naturally, the service comes at a cost and Pacquiao has edged his welterweight rival with a fee of £830 – compared to the £829 charged by ‘Money’.
Mike Tyson also features on the service but is amazingly available for HALF the price of Mayweather and Pacquiao.
Iron Mike asked for just £415 before “temporarily” shutting his account due to “overwhelming demand”.
In a video advertising his services, Mayweather said: “You know who this is – it’s Floyd Mayweather.
“Money, pretty boy, Mr 50-0, the champ. With my partners at Stardam Images and Cameo, you can have me customise messages.
“I’m the most expensive celebrity on Cameo and the first celebrity to go commercial with Stardam Images.
“There’s only one thing left to do. You know what to do…”
According to US showbiz site TMZ, the American superstar also said he wants to be the “first celebrity to make $1million on Cameo”.
Mayweather, 43, is understood to be formulating plans for a fresh comeback fight but the coronavirus pandemic has meant he is unable to travel to Japan for talks.
Earlier this month, he told fans to “stay tuned” for news on a potential exhibition match.
In the meantime, he has been busy exploring different ventures and even took his one-man show on a European tour.
So far Money has one Cameo review – giving him a five-star rating – which simply read: “Thank you!”
And Manny has two reviews, with one revealing: “Thank you so much Manny!!! It was an absolute honor to hear from you. I’ll be sure to be there to root for you on your next fight. God bless you Manny.”
