MANILA, Philippines–The chance encounters between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. are not yet over.
Days after Pacquiao’s unanimous decision conquest of Adrien Broner in Las Vegas, where Mayweather was also in attendance, the two legendary fighters met again, this time at courtside at Staples Center in Los Angeles on Tuesday.
In a video posted by Pacquiao, he can be seen going over to Mayweather and shaking his hand before the two exchanged smiles.
The Filipino boxing champion got a visit from Mayweather at his locker room on Sunday just before his welterweight defense.
Earlier this month, the boxing rivals also met at Staples Center for Clippers’ Filipino Heritage Night.
These meetings have only fueled the rumors that another megabout between the two rivals is happening soon.
Pacquiao had said that he is willing to fight Mayweather if the American boxer comes out of retirement.
But when ambushed by Showtime’s Jim Gray from ringside after Pacquiao’s victory, Mayweather did not bat an eyelash when asked if he wanted to square off again against Pacquiao.
