LAS VEGAS — Filipino ring superstar Manny Pacquiao arrived at Delano just beside Mandalay Bay on Monday night here at the desert boxing capital just five days away from his May 2 megafight with the undefeated Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Pacquiao arrived at around 9 p.m. onboard an RV, which is longer than his specially-designed bus, with an “allegiance” marking on the side. The Fighter of the Decade came through the side entrance of the hotel and was welcomed by his supporters.

Before departing from Los Angeles, the WBO welterweight champion did his final training at Wild Card Boxing Club.

“I hope Manny wins. A lot of people here like Manny to win even though Las Vegas is Mayweather’s home,” said a transportation supervisor at the hotel in charge of taking care of the service luxury cars parked at the main entrance.

“I don’t like Mayweather because he’s cocky,” he added.

Pacquiao is confident he will be the first man to beat Mayweather, who boasts a 47-0 record heading into the long-awaited showdown at the nearby MGM Grand Garden Arena along Las Vegas Boulevard.

Team Pacquiao left Hollywood earlier Monday and traveled for about 445 kilometers. Pacquiao’s vehicle spearheaded a convoy of nearly 100 cars and SUVs including the bus.
