Muhammad Ali Weighs in on Pacquiao vs. Mayweather

We’re mere days away from one of the biggest boxing matches of this generation.  On May 2, Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao will do battle in Las Vegas.  One of the greatest of all time, Muhammad Ali, has made his thoughts known regarding this bout and all of the nonsense that surfaced where Mayweather said that he was better than Ali.  A tweet posted by Ali’s representative came across earlier in the day and got to trending on Facebook as well:

It’s worth saying that Ali does not run his own Twitter account, likely because of his health concerns.  Ali does occasionally originate his own tweets, and they bear the hashtag #AliTweet when he posts them.  Back in March, Ali did weigh in on the fight personally, and posted this tweet:

Mayweather has gone on record to give fighters like Ali and Sugar Ray Robinson respect and credit for “paving the way” for him, but added that no one can “brainwash” him into thinking that either of those men were better fighters than he is.

I mentioned this on the latest Ring Rap Audio briefly.  Ali is still such a charismatic personality, despite his illnesses.
