Pacquiao and Mayweather

All boxing fanatics, and even those who aren’t particularly into the sport, are licking at their chops at the idea of a Manny Pacquiao/Floyd Mayweather fight. That being said, we all know that this has had it’s fair share of difficulties.

The prospect of this actually happening took a hit when Floyd Mayweather went to jail for domestic battery. Given, he only served two months of his original three-month sentence, but it still can deliver a huge blow to his training schedule. I’m not sure that prison conditions, including the nutrition options, are optimal for training for one of the most anticipated boxing matches ever.

So, you would think Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao are bitter rivals, right?

Well, not quite. According to a report, Manny actually wanted to visit Mayweather in prison. Yup.

“Pacquiao told me he wanted to see little Floyd, when little Floyd was in jail,” Floyd Mayweather Sr., said. “I guess he was training over there and he told me that he wanted to do see little Floyd in jail. He said he did not know if he could get in or not, and I told him I did not know if I could get in either.”

It’s unclear whether Pacquiao ever did visit Mayweather. There are no reports that he did.

This seems like the NBA, where all the league’s best players are ultra friendly to each other.

Regardless, this certainly would have been a nice gesture on Pacquiao’s end.

Anyway, can we just see this fight, or what?
