LAS VEGAS—Floyd Mayweather Jr. showed up to catch Manny Pacquiao’s latest world title bout against Keith Thurman on Saturday at MGM Grand Garden Arena here.
Mayweather arrived midway through the co-featured bout of the card between Yordenis Ugas and Omar Figueroa Jr.
The former pound-for-pound king, who last appeared in an official boxing match two years ago when he stopped MMA star Conor McGregor, isn’t the only sports personality in attendance.
Kawhi Leonard, the two-time NBA Champion and two-time NBA Finals MVP, also came to see the fight, sitting a couple of rows behind Mayweather.
Leonard just recently made headlines after opting to sign with the Los Angeles Clippers in free agency a month after leading the Toronto Raptors to their first NBA championship.
Both personalities were seated near Manny’s wife Jinkee and his family.
Apart from Leonard, Ty Lue, the former Cleveland Cavaliers head coach, is also present.
