Actors Tom Arnold, Mark Ruffalo get behind Manny Pacquiao vs Mayweather
This weekend is a big weekend for sports fans.
It’s the Kentucky Derby and the NFL draft and the boxing match between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather, Jr. in Las Vegas.
While arriving at a special screening in New York for “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” actor Tom Arnold said he’s all about the big fight.
“The boxing I care about the most. I think it’s the last big fight we’re gonna have for quite a while. I grew up loving boxing and it’s a big fight. I care a lot about it. The Kentucky Derby I care if, you know, if there’s somebody who can win the Triple Crown – it’s a beautiful race – but this fight is huge.”
Mark Ruffalo, who has been on a media whirlwind promoting “Avengers” had to be reminded by co-star Jeremy Renner why it was a big sports weekend but once that happened – he was all in for Pacquiao.
“My dad used to take me when I was probably the first sports event I ever went to in my entire life was a Leon Spinks, Sugar Ray Leonard fight that was televised on a teletron TV. It was a very big deal in the 70’s. It was awesome so I have a yeah. Freddie Roach is a friend of mine too who trains Pacquiao.”
Las Vegas oddmakers have Pacquiao remaining about a 2-1 underdog for Saturday’s fight.
