Ladies and gents, the last official event before the #FightOfTheCentury is finally over. Earlier this morning, inside a jam-packed MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, the weigh-in for the superbout was held. Both Pacquiao (145 lbs.) and Mayweather (146 lbs.) had no problems making the weight.
And when the two went face-to-face during the customary stare-down, something quite surprising happened. Nope, no punches were thrown, saliva spat, and kisses unleashed (it happens!). Heck, even trash-talking was absent. Nonetheless, it was still a face-off like no other, because our man Manny did something you wouldn't expect from someone facing a rival with brutal intentions: say THANK YOU.
We all know Manny's polite and gracious as heck but, c'mon! Thanking the country's current Public Enemy No.1? #Unreal
When asked by reporters after why he thanked Money, Manny said he was just happy that Mayweather finally agreed to fight him. Not that he's lying, but we feel there are a few other reasons why he's being thankful. We ran the incident through the FHM Translator Machine, and here are the results:
Mayweather: "Uhm, welcome?"
Bagong laban na naman, Manny!
2016 is just around the corner...
Book it! What "no rematch" clause?
Seriously, this sumbitch is the only way...
We totally know how you feel, bro!
Smiling outside, brutal inside
Manny's gonna preach some ass-whoopin'!
Pasado sa 6'5" height limit, sir!
Make it happen, PNoy!
