MANILA – Manny Pacquiao camp has reportedly come up with a multi-million dollar offer to lure WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley into a rematch.
Marquez earlier announced a September 14 fight with Bradley as the Mexican bids to become a five-division world champion.
But Pacquiao’s camp, which appears determined to frustrate Marquez from backing out of a fifth fight, has dangled a $6 million offer to Bradley.
“We have offered Bradley that amount,” Michael Koncz said in an interview with Manila Bulletin’s Nick Giongco.
The offer is $1 million more than the $5 million purse Bradley received during their first bout in June of 2012.
Bradley eked out a split decision win in the bout and snatched the WBO welterweight title away from Pacquiao.
The Filipino fighter is pursuing the American champion after Marquez and his camp announced several times that he would rather not fight Pacquiao again.
The Filipino suffered a sixth-round knockout defeat at the hands of Marquez last December.
If Bradley dismisses Pacquiao’s offer, Koncz said they will pursue other fighters.
“We have other options,” he said, which means Brandon Rios and Mike Alvarado.
