Pacquiao picks Mayweather over McGregor

This time, Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. will be on the same side.

Pacquiao will be rooting for Mayweather in an eccentric super fight against Conor McGregor on August 26 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

“It’s a boxing fight so I’m going with the boxer,” Pacquiao said in Filipino on Wednesday after his team Kia lost to Phoenix in the opener of the 2017 PBA Governors’ Cup at Smart Araneta Coliseum.

Mayweather, 40, is shaking off the cobwebs after retiring two years ago.

The former pound-for-pound king shoots for win No. 50 while staking his undefeated record against one of UFC’s top stars and arguably, the biggest draw in MMA.

Mayweather and McGregor just wrapped up their circus-like world press tour that had stops in Los Angeles, Toronto, New York and London with both fighters engaging in explicit trash-talking and drama made for WWE.
