Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquaio Met at Halftime of Heat Game [UPDATE: Both Met in Hotel Room After the Game]

Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquaio, who have continued to posture back and forth in recent weeks/months/years but still not yet settled on any sort of fight date, were sitting courtside opposite from each other at tonight’s Heat-Bucks game. As you can see in the photo, they conversed at halftime. According to Yahoo’s Kevin Iole, it went well!

Tim Reynolds of the AP passes along the following from his Twitter account:

Pacquiao says Mayweather gave him his cell number and told him it’s time for them to work this fight out themselves. Pac says he got told 1 minute before halftime that Floyd was coming over for a chat. Pacquiao said he never spoke to Floyd in person before tonight. Thank Winter Storm Juno if this fight ever happens. Pac wasn’t supposed to be here tonight — but his flight was canceled.

[UPDATE: ESPN.com’s Dan Rafael reported that the pair met again after the game:

Hours after a public face-to-face meeting and brief discussion during halftime of Tuesday night’s Miami Heat-Milwaukee Bucks game in Miami, Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. met privately for more than an hour to continue discussing terms for their proposed May 2 megafight.

They met inside Pacquiao’s hotel suite and “it was very pleasant and very encouraging, and we give Floyd credit for coming over,” Pacquiao adviser Michael Koncz, who was present at the meeting, told ESPN.com on Wednesday. “That’s the first time they ever sat eye to eye. I’ve met Floyd many times but he and Manny had never had a chance to meet. They talked at halftime, but this was a longer, more serious meeting. You could tell by their body language that this was very positive. It was for a good hour or more.

“It was a business meeting but it wasn’t a tense business meeting. I think that’s because they both have mutual respect for each other. We’ll determine what will happen over the next couple of days.”

Lance Pugmire of the LA Times provided information from Koncz, who spoke about details from the discussion:

Koncz said as a result of that talk, he has received confirmation of an agreement between CBS/Showtime Chairman Leslie Moonves and HBO Chief Executive Richard Plepler that the fight will feature two broadcasters from each premium network.

Koncz said each network also will produce an hour-long show on its fighter, Showtime doing a Mayweather story and HBO airing a Pacquiao special.

Now, the question is whether the sides can finally sign on the dotted line and allow the hype machine to go into overdrive. ]

Boxing Fans Brawl in the Stands During Gennaday Golovkin – Marco Antonio Rubio Fight [Video

Gennaday Golovkin took on Marco Antonio Rubio on Saturday at the StubHub Center in Carson, California. Unless you’re a avid boxing fan, I’m sure you didn’t see it. And unless you were there, you probably missed this fight in the stands where two meatheads agreed to take it to a flat surface to throw down. The fight ends with two of the tough guys getting arrested.

As for the guy in the bowling pin shirt from the start of the video? He vanished into the night.

Meanwhile, in the ring, Golovkin defended his WBA and IBO belts with a second round knockout. Golovskin is now 31-0 in his career.
