Chad Bennett's Team Tries To Bribe Jaca To Lay Down?

By Edward Chaykovsky

According to the Sun Star paper, Filipino fighter Jimrex Jaca's trainer is stating that his boxer was offered money to throw a fight with WBA/WBO Pan Asian junior welterweight champion Chad 'Hollywood' Bennett. The fight was scheduled to take place last week as part of the failed event featuring Anthony Mundine vs. Shane Mosley. The event was canceled after Mosley withdrew due to a financial dispute.

Jaca's trainer Franklin Albia told the Sun Star they were approached with an offer of $3500, with $2,000 going to the trainer.

“He told us 'my friend you have to lose this fight' but we said no because we were not there to lose this fight,” Albia said. “They threatened to pull us out from the fight and change to a different opponent if we didn't give in to their demands.”

After Mosley-Mundine fell apart, Jaca was offered another crack at Bennett - but only if the Filpino fighter agreed to lay down.

“We were offered to fight him on December 6 and I was going to be paid a purse of $14,000 but I had to throw the fight away,” Jaca said.

Maybe they should've offered him more than 1,500 and he might have taken it.

Anyone fancy a bet on Bennets next 10 fights? I got him winning all 10.
