Internationally renowned comedian Will Ferrell outbid everyone at his own charity auction, paying an astounding $24,000 for two ringside seats to the WBO welterweight championship between undefeated defending champion Tim Bradley and Fighter of the Decade Manny Pacquiao. Bradley took time off from training to assist in auctioning off the prized ducats along with #2 world-ranked tennis player Novak Djokovic, Actor Kevin Spacey and #3 world-ranked tennis player Stanislas Wawrinka.
