Paddy Power has offered £50,000 for Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney to fight Phil Bardsley in boxing match
The leaked video of Wayne Rooney being knocked out by Phil Bardsley was the talk of the whole weekend.
First the video was leaked, then Rooney mocked it with his Manchester United goal celebration – but the story isn’t over yet.
Bookmaker Paddy Power have now offered a £50,000 charity prize for Rooney to take on Stoke City defender Bardsley in an official boxing rematch. Seriously.
The event would be broadcast live on TV and possibly take place at a famous boxing club in London.
‘Punters have been going crazy for the re-match, and there’s no doubt it could be as big as Froch versus Groves 2,’ Paddy Power said.
You can get odds of 18/1 for Bardsley to knock Rooney out in the first round.
