NBA great Karl Malone visits Pacquiao in training camp

NBA great Karl Malone visits Pacquiao in training camp

The Mailman arrived and he delivered a very special package for Manny Pacquiao.

Himself. And his family.

While deep in training for his May 2 (US time) welterweight unification fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr., Pacquiao had some time to share with two-time NBA MVP Karl Malone.

Malone, one of the greatest power forwards in the sport, visited Pacquiao at the Wild Card Gym with his wife Kay Kinsey.

"Thank you Karl Malone for visiting me today. God Bless you and your family,"

Pacquiao posted on Instagram Friday (Manila time).

Malone, who was also an 11-time All Star, had brushes with the art of fighting.

He once said that he would still fight former teammate, when he was with the Los Angeles Lakers, Kobe Bryant if the five-time champion continued to flirt with his wife.

Even former UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar wasn't safe from Malone, who also wrestled in the now defunct World Wrestling Championship for one match.

Hey, it's good to know Pacquiao has a hulking 6-foot-10 Mailman behind his back.
