Manny Pacquiao was involved in a minor car accident today in Las Vegas, according to TMZ, but will be alright for tonight's fight against Shane Mosley.

Sources close to Pacquiao tell TMZ he was traveling in a fleet of cars after church today, when one of Manny's security vehicles collided with the car carrying Manny.

We're told Pacquiao is back at his hotel now, where his trainer, Freddie Roach, checked him out. According to our source, Pacquiao is just a little shaken up ... but he's okay to go for tonight.

No doubt the headlines are a bit of a scare for not just Pacquiao fans but all boxing fans looking forward to tonight's event, but the good news is that it sounds like absolutely nothing serious. If there were really much to it at all, Pacquiao surely would have taken all precautions. Going back to the hotel and getting checked out by Roach sounds like a non-event, when you get down to it. Thankfully, Manny is alright and the fight is still on.
