MANILA – It can be safe to assume that as the undisputed pound-for-pound king of boxing, Floyd Mayweather’s presence is unmissable.
Or so everyone thought.
Media men around the world were up and about on Friday night, after “Money May” broke the news about finally having the fight deal with Manny Pacquiao signed, sealed and delivered.
But Saturday’s edition of the Los Angeles Times served more as a comic relief, after a picture of former WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley was used instead of Floyd Mayweather’s, in a related report about the May 2nd super fight.
Granted that Bradley did face Pacquiao twice, with the first one gaining worldwide infamy, it was still quite unusual for a media publication such as the Los Angeles Times to commit this kind of error.
The LA Times has yet to air their side of the story.
