MANILA - Manny Pacquiao was all smiles at the weigh-ins held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Friday (Saturday, Manila time).
The eight-division world champion was in his usual jovial mood as he met the 147-pound limit and faced off against his long-time rival, Floyd Mayweather Jr., in front of a monumental 11,500 crowd in attendance.

Floyd Mayweather, on the other hand, held a poker face throughout the fight, showing that he means business, in a historic match-up that took five years in the making.
Both fighters went below the weight limit, with Mayweather tipping the scales at 146 lbs, while Pacquiao was at 145 lbs. Afterwards, “Pacman” took bites off a Butterfingers Cup, which he is endorsing as well.
Meanwhile, ESPN took a new route at reporting when they also took note of the total staredown time and the number of times both fighters blinked during the process.
