MANILA – Filipino boxing champion Manny Pacquiao and undefeated American fighter and rival Floyd Mayweather Jr. had the chance to finally see each other – at an NBA game.

Both boxers were seen at courtside at the American Airlines Arena when the Miami Heat hosted the Milwaukee Bucks.

The fighters are currently negotiating for the much-awaited super fight on May 2.

During halftime, Mayweather went over to Pacquiao. The two shook hands, and briefly spoke. Later on, Pacquiao revealed that they exchanged numbers.

“He gave me his number to me and said we will communicate with each other,” said Pacquiao.

He added that it was his first time to speak with Mayweather in person.

Meanwhile, Mayweather claimed that he wanted to speak with the Filipino boxer to clarify “all the lies” that have been going around between their camps.

Earlier, Pacquiao mentioned that he already agreed to all the terms of Mayweather and that he is only waiting for the American boxer to give his approval.
