Nelson Mandela's Daughter Sued Over Pacquiao Fight

4/18/2011 4:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A boxing promoter claims he was victimized by Nelson Mandela's daughter over a botched effort to organize a Floyd Mayweather/Manny Pacquiao fight to celebrate her dad's 93rd birthday.

Zindziswa Mandela Sued
Duane Moody claims Zindziswa Mandela approached him several months ago to broker the fight -- which she estimated would pull in $100 million.  Moody claims in return for organizing the event, he would get 15% of the proceeds.

According to the lawsuit filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Nelson's daughter flaked out as he tried negotiating the deal.  Things got so hinky, Moody claims he was kicked out of his Vegas hotel room because "Zindzi Mandela was not paying the bill as agreed."

The fight was ultimately scrapped, but Moody claims he's owed $7.5 million -- yes, we're confused by the math as well.

Dumb people.--------------No sweet sugar plum-cakes, it is you that is most apparently dumb.... $100 million is merely what would be payed out to Floyd and Manny, to share as a purse for a fight of this caliber.

The fight itself would garner HBO (PPV) Pay-Per-View revenue well in excess of $300-400 million.

I suggest people like yourself and Zindziswa Mandela stay in your lanes. Which means--- Stay far and away from the Fight-Game, it's not tailored for women.

@fartofwar @Chaz; I'll gladly make you something in the kitchen. A nice home made pipe bomb suprise or maybe some of my special arsenic soup.
You're sexist idiots that need to be sterilized post haste. Of course I have no iterest in the barbaric "sport" of boxing. I'm heterosexual. Not some tubby cheet-o fingered virgin who gets off on half naked sweaty men beating the crud out of each other. Maybe you two should go on a nice date together. I hear Justin Beiber is coming in concert and that's right up your alley.
And remember lovies; It doesn't matter if your gay straight or bi, cuz bebes you were born that way! xoxo

I knew Duane Moody personally. He is a liar, crook/thief and stole money from me pretending he was going to produce Nelson Mandela for his birthday to LA. He took the money and did nothing. Duane Moody has also been in prison serving hard time! Ever see how the dude dresses. Like a big joke!!! looks like a pimp!
