Boxing superstars Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. were seen together Tuesday night (US Time) at a Miami Heat game in Florida.
Mayweather had a courtside seat next to the Heat bench, directly across from Pacquiao's seat on the opposite sideline for a game against the Bucks. The two fighters may be getting closer to a long anticipated bout that would be the richest ever in boxing — potentially grossing as much as $250 million.
Mayweather said last month that he's ready to make the fight happen May 2.
Pacquiao responded a few days later on social media, telling Mayweather that it's time to "give the fans the fight they want." In recent days, another tweet was posted to Pacquiao's account where he said "I can easily beat @FloydMayweather, I believe that."
Mayweather hasn't lost in 47 fights. Pacquiao is 57-5-2 in his career. He has been in Miami for several days because he was judging the Miss Universe competition.
Pacquiao is a noted basketball fan and has a friendly relationship with Heat coach Erik Spoelstra, who is of Filipino descent. Mayweather has been a regular courtside attendee at Heat games for several years.
Manny and Floyd were seen on this photo exchanging numbers. According to some reporters, this was the first time the boxing superstars have ever spoken to each other. WOW!
Looks like the most awaited fight is happening soon.
