The greatest boxer of all time is on Team Pacquiao.
When Manny Pacquiao finally squares off with Floyd Mayweather in a highly anticipated bout on May 2, boxing legend Muhammad Ali will be rooting for Pacquiao. Ali’s daughter, Rasheda, told TMZSports.com that while her father respects both fighters, he’s hoping Pacquiao scores the win.
“He knows Manny’s a great fighter, but it’s more than what he does outside the ring,” Rasheda Ali told TMZSports.com. “He’s such a charitable person.”
There’s also some history between Pacquiao and the Ali family, as Pacquiao even attended Ali’s 70th birthday.
Ali won’t be in Las Vegas for the fight, but he’ll be keeping a close eye on things from home.
“There’s no question he’s going to order it. It takes my dad way back to when he was fighting,” Rasheda said.
