Manny Pacquiao says Floyd Mayweather meeting a coincidence

Manny Pacquiao has stated his basketball meeting with old rival Floyd Mayweather Jr. recently was merely a coincidence.

The 40 year-old legend, as he did before their original 2015 clash, greeted Mayweather as the pair enjoyed courtside seats at an NBA game.

An expected media frenzy ensued, although the ‘Pacman’ was coy when quizzed on potential talks over a rematch.

Mayweather vs Pacquiao

“Surprisingly, I didn’t know that he was there at the game,” Pacquiao claimed. “I was invited on that Filipino Heritage Night at the Clippers’ game.

“I didn’t know that he was there and then when they were throwing t-shirts to the crowds I saw him.  And then I just say, ‘Hello’ – that’s it.”

On continued media speculation over a second bout, Pacquiao added: “You cannot avoid the people that will ask if there’s a rematch with Floyd Mayweather because I think they have a big question mark in their mind. Also in their heart about that what happened in that fight.”

Gearing up to battle Adrien Broner in Las Vegas this week, the Filipino Senator has only one focus – for now.

“I’m just answering them that I don’t have a plan yet.  I’m very focused on this fight January 19 against Adrien Broner.

“Broner is a former champion and he’s the kind of fighter that you cannot underestimate or take him lightly.

“I think after this fight it’s easy to talk about my next opponent. That’s very easy but right now my plan is one at a time, because – as they said – I am 40 years old.

“I’m focused for this fight against Adrien Broner. One at a time. After the fight on January 19 that night then we can talk about my next fight,” he concluded.
