MANILA - With speculations rising that the megafight between pound-for-pound greats Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. is finally going to happen, the eight-division World Champion thinks he's finally getting a shot at Pretty Boy Floyd, in a Foot Locker ad at least.
In an advertisement posted on YouTube featuring the American athletic store's Week of Greatness, which features the store's best sneakers releases, Pacquiao breaks his training to the thought of finally landing some combinations to the face of Mayweather.
"The thing the people wanted is finally happening?" Pacquiao asked two guys playing on a heavy bag inside a boxing gym.
"He's going to fight me! He's going to fight me! Yes! He's going to fight me!" Pacquiao shouted in glee as he continued his shadow boxing routine.
As Pacquiao shadow boxes, the two heavy bag-playing actors talk it over if they should tell Pacquiao that it's not the Mayweather fight.
They decide against it as Pacquiao gets more joyful than a kid getting an ice cream cone.
Before the fight with Mayweather could even happen, Pacquiao is set to face unbeaten American Chris Algieri on Sunday.
