LAS VEGAS – Look who was spotted in the premises of the MGM Grand shortly after the Manny Pacquiao-Tim Bradley fight?
It’s good, old Floyd Mayweather Jr.
The retired unbeaten champion was seen leaving the hotel casino accompanied by wide-bodied men, his presence obviously creating commotion as people tried to get a glimpse of the man who beat Pacquiao last year in the most lucrative fight ever in boxing history.
It can’t be confirmed however, if Mayweather (49-0, 26 KOs) watched the fight between Pacquiao and Bradley, which drew an attendance of 14.665. The legendary Filipino southpaw won the match by unanimous decision.
Shortly after the fight, the 37-year-old pride of General Santos City said he’s retiring from boxing, almost a year since his loss to Floyd Jr.
Mayweather officially hang up his gloves last September of last year when he beat Andre Berto in his farewell fight.
Pacquiao was asked during his post-fight press conference if a rematch with Mayweather would make him come back and fight again in the near future.
“ I can’t answer that (right now) because I might enjoy (my) retirement,” was his casual reply.
