Manny Pacquiao has starred in a new hilarious Foot Locker commercial which takes a dig at the fact that his bout with Floyd Mayweather is actually going to happen.
Mayweather vs Pacquiao tickets: Contract finally signed and tickets on sale.
Mayweather vs Pacquiao tickets row: Promoters still at war over final contract.
Bayless appointed referee for Mayweather-Pacquiao: Controversy as many questions if Pac-Man will be allowed to fight inside.
Pacquiao previously featured in a commercial for Foot Locker where he mistakenly believed that Mayweather had agreed to fight him, but that was naturally a shot at the American as no agreement had been reached.
Years later, the pair are finally set to face off in the ring on May 2 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, and the Filipino and retailer couldn’t help but have a bit of fun with the situation.
With fight week upon us, the two fighters will be involved in numerous events due to media obligations including the final press conference and weigh-in, and it remains to be seen whether or not any words are exchanged.
Both men have avoided any trash talk in the build-up so far, with Pacquiao continuing to be a reserved character at the head-to-head although he has made comments along the way to the media.
Mayweather hasn’t said much this time round either as he appears fully focused on the task in hand, although there is still time for that to change as the pair come face-to-face next week for the final time before fight night.
While the unbeaten American superstar is the clear favourite to win, opinion is certainly split with Pacquiao receiving support from various coaches and fellow boxers, both former and current.
However, before things get really serious next week, here’s that hilarious commercial.
