It was the closest as it gets physically when both Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather bumps each other during the Miami Heat game against Milwaukee Bucks in American Airlines Center Arena on Tuesday night. It is the first time fighters attended the game on the same roof but not on the same ring and shake hands but not exchanging fist.
Although the road has been bumpy for the elusive fight, but there are positive signs lately that the Pacquiao vs Mayweather fight will happen this year, specifically on May 2. AP sports writer tweeted:
Pacquiao says Mayweather gave him his cell number and told him it's time for them to work this fight out themselves.
