Floyd Mayweather Gives Manny Pacquiao Props, Says He Hopes Fight Happens

Floyd Mayweather attended a screening of Freelancers, the new pretty much straight-to-DVD movie starring 50 Cent, Forest Whitaker, and Robert De Niro, and gave a quick interview on the red (?) carpet. Here's the video:


Q: "You're out here supporting your friend 50. Are you proud of him?"

Floyd: "I mean, of course. It's unbelievable. Forest Whitaker - and like I said before, so many different great people out here. Of course. It's always great to have your freedom, of course. I'm happy to be back home and I'm always gonna support my friend 50 Cent. He's a great guy, and in the (music) industry, he's done some very, very record-breaking things, and I think that he can do it also in the movie industry."

Anyway, then he's asked about some nonsense boxing fans probably won't care much about.

But he does get asked about Manny Pacquiao:

"Today is 50 Cent's day, it's not my day, so I'm not here to talk about boxing. When that day presents itself, I'll go out there and do what I have to do. But I think Pacquiao is an unbelievable fighter, and hopefully we can make the fight happen in the future. But right now, it's movie night."

I'm pretty sure we've heard this before, but every time one of these two mentions the other one, I'm obligated by overwhelming public interest to say stuff about it. It's this kind of stuff, which I'm sure grinds on many of you because you're tired of hearing it, that gives me the juice to watch two weeks of Olympic boxing or bring some Robert Guerrero round-by-round coverage. Without these two, there's a decent chance I wouldn't be here in this situation, so really, if you break it down that way, Manny and Floyd continue to fuel the very existence of this blog.

It is, as they say, what it is.
