Boxers Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. sat across from one another at the Miami Heat, Milwaukee Bucks game Tuesday night (Jan. 27), and at halftime, Mayweather walked over to talk to Pacquiao. The two have never met face-to-face before.
Representatives for the fighters swear that the boxers being at the same game was purely a coincidence, but everyone knows that boxing is all about promotion.

The two fighters talked briefly, and then exchanged numbers. Pacquiao told the Associated Press, “He gave his number to me and said we will communicate with each other.”
Pacquiao (57-5-2, 38 KOs) just recently agreed to fight Mayweather (47-0, 26 KOs), and he agrees to all his terms, but Mayweather still wants Pacquiao’s promoter Bob Arum out of the picture.
If the fight does happen, we will find out soon. A date for Mayweather to fight has been set for May 2, but who he will fight remains uncertain. If he and Pacquiao can’t make a deal, likely Mayweather’s challenger would be Amir Khan or Miguel Cotto (again).
Check out a video clip of the two boxers chatting at the game.

Oh, and if you’re wondering, the Bucks beat the Heat 109-102.
