Boxingtalk – Press Release: Manny Pacquiao, who according to a press release, is a “die-hard Boston Celtics fan” will not begin his fight against Timothy Bradley until after his “beloved” Celtics finish game 7 of the NBA’s Eastern Conference Finals against the-Miami Heat. Promoter Bob Arum (pictured) said, “I’m not waiting for Manny’s request on this one. We will not begin the Pacquiao–Bradley main event fight until the Celtics and the Heat finish their playoff game,” said Arum. “Now Manny, the Heat, the Celtics, and sports fans watching the basketball game won’t have to make a choice between events, they will be able to watch both.
Champions respect champions. It’s that simple.
