Manny Pacquiao and Yordenis Ugas will fight in Las Vegas on August 21, 2021. The return of Pacquiao, who has achieved legendary status in the boxing world, is highly anticipated and a once-in-a-lifetime event. With the help of Powerfan, the event will be commemorated as an NFT and painting, and the process will support the Manny Pacquiao Foundation. The NFT launch will feature a painting signed by Manny Pacquiao created by Jun Aquino the "Painter of Champions"

Upcoming Manny Pacquiao NFTs

Boxing fans globally will be familiar with the storied career of Manny Pacquiao. He held at least one championship across eight weight divisions, making him one of the all-time greats in the sport. Although Pacquiao last fought in 2019, he will now make a return to Pay-Per-View on August 21, 2021. His opponent, Yordenis Ugas, is the current WBA welterweight champion. With one loss to his name since 2015, the title fight will be an event to behold.

As the event is so highly anticipated, PowerFan decided to offer something unique. The upcoming WBA welterweight title fight will be commemorated as a non-fungible token and painting. Both will be sold during an auction that runs from August 20 to August 27, 2021. After the bidding closes, the winner will be announced and receive a physical painting, signed by Manny Pacquiao and a personal thanks from Jun Aquino "Painter of Champions", a behind-the-scenes video, and exclusive access to future NFT art sales.

Additionally, four other paintings will be sold as NFTs during this event. Limited quantities will be available for immediate purchase and come with special bonuses.

The Manny Pacquiao NFT will be sold for $2,500, with a quantity of 10. Additionally, a total of 15 Fighting Harada NFTs will be available for $850 each. The Eder Jofre NFT series spans 20 pieces priced at $500 each. Furthermore, there are 25 Ceferino Garcia NFTs for $250 each. Every purchase comes with a high-resolution image of the painting, behind-the-scenes video from the artist, and VIP early access to future NFT launches.

PowerFan Creates New Fan Connections

Many goals are achievable through non-fungible tokens. PowerFan aims to empower authors, content creators, and fans to forge new levels of connection. Through the platform, creators can mint NFTs or create custom digital assets. Those assets can then be used as an incentive for fans to share content. Getting rewarded to share content is a game-changer that would not be possible in a transparent manner without blockchain technology.

Under the hood, PowerFan offers a minting solution including royalty settings, affiliate commissions, and unlockable content. Creators can sell minted non-fungible tokens on other platforms, and creators earn 97.5% of all sales proceeds. Those proceeds are paid immediately to the creator without involving any intermediaries.

Additionally, PowerFan's team will support the marketing and sales of NFTs. They also provide creation and design advice through their White Glove Service. In exchange for this extra service - which has no upfront cost - the creator will earn 70% of the proceeds from the initial sale.

Closing Thoughts

Commemorating iconic events in the sports world has become more modern through the use of NFTs. Services like PowerFan simplify the minting process and allow creators to focus on what is important: delighting the audience and growing a business. In addition, non-fungible tokens can create new bonds between content creators, celebrities, and their fans and serve the modern needs of a digital-focused society.

Moreover, the technology allows for the interactive commemoration of significant real-world events, including the Manny Pacquiao vs. Yordenis Ugas fight. An intriguing opportunity is created by creating NFTs and paintings to celebrate this event and making them available to fans. Artist Jun Aquino is the First Asian Artist to be inducted by the West Coast Boxing Hall of Fame in the Art of Boxing category.
