MANILA, Philippines — An avid boxing fan, Damian Lillard shared his two cents worth on the longstanding Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao debate.

When asked randomly on Twitter as to who is the better boxer between the two legends, the Portland Trail Blazers star kept his answer short.

Mayweather and Pacquiao met once in a long overdue showdown in 2015 with the undefeated American winning by unanimous decision.

Mayweather has been retired since stopping former UFC champion Conor McGregor in a crossover fight in 2017 for his 50th victory while Pacquiao remains active and is coming off an impressive win over Keith Thurman last year to claim the WBA (Super) welterweight title.

The two rivals, however, are still being rumored for a rematch even to this day.
