Manny Pacquiao appeared to be in high spirits while meeting Floyd Mayweahter Jr. and Lou Williams in Los Angeles.
Manny Pacquiao met with Floyd Mayweather Jr. and some of the members of the Los Angeles Clippers as part of the NBA's Filipino Heritage Night celebration at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, Wednesday morning, Manila time.
Photos posted by the Clippers' Twitter account showed the Filipino boxing legend as he was all smiles reuniting with Mayweather and meeting head coach Doc Rivers, breakout star Tobias Harris, and veteran guards Lou Williams and Patrick Beverley.
Rivers appeared to be a fan, as he gushed about owning a pair of Manny's gloves as part of his collection as he talked to the legend himself.
Manny is currently in L.A. training for his upcoming WBA Welterweight World Championship defense against Adrien Broner this January 19 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Pacquiao was also joined by Filipino-American Black Eyed Peas member apl.de.ap, real name Allan Pineda Lindo to celebrate Pinoy culture in the NBA.
Filipino NBA fans were not the only winners, however, as the Clippers took the convincing 128-109 victory against the Hornets.
Lou Williams led the way for L.A. with 27 points and 10 assists to help the Clippers strengthen their hold of the Western Conference's fourth spot with a 24-16 win-loss card.
