RETIRED superstar fighter Floyd Mayweather Jr. grabbed a share of the limelight at Thomas & Mack Center on Saturday night (Sunday,Manila time), taking a ringside seat right before the bout between Manny Pacquiao and Jessie Vargas.

It was apparently the first fight not being organized by Mayweather Promotions that unbeaten boxing star has attended.

His presence at the fight may fuel talk about coming out of retirement to face Pacquiao, but Mayweather said he was just accompanying her daughter to the fight.

Pacquiao defeated Vargas by unanimous decision, his second straight points win and fifth in the last six bouts. He lost the other, also by decision, to Mayweather last year.
