MANILA - In usual "Money May" fashion, Floyd Mayweather chose to celebrate his birthday in the limelight.
The reigning pound-for-pound boxing, who turned 38 years old on Tuesday, was spotted in attendance at the Staples Center for that night's NBA game between the Los Angeles Clippers and the Memphis Grizzlies. The Grizzlies ended up winning, with a score of 90-87.
Mayweather is slated to begin camp in March. But while the bout is still less than two months away, Floyd Sr. already made his conclusions on how things will end on fight night, mainly based on his previous experience of working as the head coach of Pacquiao's former opponent Ricky Hatton.
"I know one thing, I know every move that Pacquiao does," Mayweather said in a previous interview with mlive.com. "A southpaw is definitely geared to be hit with right hands. I'm going to say that, along with the body work, it's going to be a good right hand and a left hook that's going to put him down."
Meanwhile, eight thousand miles at the Eastern part of the globe, eight-division world champion Manny Pacquiao already began his eight-week training camp at his very own Wild Card gym in General Santos City.
Long-time friend and coach Buboy Fernandez is currently facilitating the sessions, before Manny flies off to Los Angeles next week to meet with Freddie Roach at the original Wild Card gym in West Hollywood.
Mayweather's style has been proven effective, given his unblemished win-loss slate. This, however, is no problem for Pacquiao, who firmly believes on his capabilities that can give the reigning pound-for-pound boxing king a run for his money.
“I know very well what to do in training to prepare for his style," Pacquiao said in an interview with a local media publication. "I don’t think I will have a hard time, especially because my preparation for my last fight will be similar to what I will do for this fight.”
