Boxing superstars Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather crossed paths at an NBA game in an unexpected meeting, that seemed to surprise the pair themselves as much as it did the fans in attendance.
Pacquiao was in Los Angeles to promote his January 19th boxing match against Adrien Broner, and the Filipino superstar took the time to visit the Staples Center on Tuesday night for the Los Angeles Clippers’ clash with the Charlotte Hornets.
The 40-year-old was there as a special guest to help the Clippers celebrate “Filipino Heritage Night” but the former eight-weight world champ got something of a surprise when he bumped into his longtime rival Mayweather.

While Pacquiao was waving and greeting the crowd before the game, he suddenly found himself standing in front of his former nemesis.
Pacquio leant down to Mayweather, who stayed seated, and shook the undefeated American’s hand before moving on

Pacquaio and Mayweather are both way past their prime, and another fight would be a big waste of time.
No concrete plans have been announced regarding a rematch.
Which is a good thing.
