Penn State Alumnus Brandon Scott Wolf Wants To Fight Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Brandon Scott Wolf: Regular guy, Penn State alumnus, comedian, founder of stand-up comedy club Second Floor Stand-up, and writer for Best Time Ever With Neil Patrick Harris.
Floyd Mayweather, Jr.: recently retired professional boxer, career record of 49-0, the first American to finish his career undefeated since Rocky Marciano, championship winner across five different weight classes, one of the greatest pound-for-pound fighters of all time.
On paper, these two men seem like polar opposites — probably because they are. But Brandon Scott Wolf will not be deterred in his quest to take down one of the greatest American boxers of all time.
Wolf recently created a website, complete with a workout video, outlining his plan to organize a fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. While his jab form looks solid, Wolf will need to do a little convincing on his part to get Mayweather, who just defeated Andre Berto by way of unanimous decision in his final career fight, to come out of retirement.
If the highly-anticipated bout comes to fruition, Wolf wants to use his platform to benefit the community around him. All proceeds from the fight would benefit the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence and international literacy organization ProLiteracy — both subtle shots at Mayweather Jr.
You can watch the hype video below, but be sure to get your pocketbooks ready. Mayweather Jr.’s self-promoted “Fight Of The Century” against Manny Pacquiao ran at $100 on pay-per-view this past spring, and you can expect this bout — Thrilla In Manila part two, if you will — to eclipse that figure.
