With just over a fortnight to go until boxing’s biggest fight takes place in Las Vegas, and the buzz surrounding Manny Pacquiao’s clash with Floyd Mayweather has now ramped up another gear.

The past two months since the fight was announced have seemed to drag on just as long as the previous five years, when many argue the fight should have taken place, but with the squared circle now in sight things are really getting tasty.
Though there’s a great respect between the two, HBO managed to gain access to both camps in the build up, and on a routine visit to Pacquiao’s gym the camera’s picked up something rather amusing.
To make sure he keeps his eye on the target, somebody gifted the Filipino a punch bag adorned with Floyd Mayeather’s face.
And it turned out that the generous donor was famed attorney Robert Shapiro.
