Manny receives speed bag with Floyd's face printed on it

"Something for target practice."
This is how reknowned Los Angeles lawyer Robert Shapiro described his gift to Manny Pacquiao, which happened to be a speed bag with Floyd Mayweather's face printed on it.
Shapiro, who is known for being O.J Simpson's defense attorney in the 1995 trial for the murder of ex-wife Nicole Brown, thought it would be a motivating factor for Pacquiao to have Mayweather's mug bounce around with the bag. Not known to be a loud trash-talker, Pacquiao simply laughed off Shapiro's gesture.
For his part, the eight-division champ is already driven enough to lay a beating on Mayweather, supposedly by Floyd's previous domestic abuse cases. This, according to trainer Freddie Roach.
The fight is 17 days away.
