Mayweather vs Pacquiao: Manny weighs in lighter than Money
Last Updated: 02/05/15 10:08am
Manny Pacquiao came in a pound lighter than Floyd Mayweather.
The Filipino came in at 145lbs, two inside the welterweight limit while the world's pound-for-pound best clocked in at 146lbs.
The pair then stood face-to-face, a foot apart, and shared a 24-second staredown before breaking off to thank to a crowd of around 16,000 fans inside the MGM Grand Arena.
Pacquiao was always expected to be lighter after checking in yesterday a full 4lbs inside the limit and even arrived eating a chocolate bar.
He was introduced by Michael Buffer, who's MC colleague for the fight, Jimmy Lennon Jr, called Mayweather onto the stage.
The American was booed by a large chunk of the crowd but refused to react, simply stepped on the scales, weighing in the heavier of the two, then posed for the offcial photos.
Pacquiao then said "thank you" to Mayweather, who refused to respond.
"My frame of mind is just to be smart," was all he would say about it afterwards. "I am ready to fight."
"It's an unbelievable turnout and I am glad all the fans came here to support me and support Manny. We will both come out tomorrow and do what we we do best."
Pacquiao admitted he thanked Mayweather for agreeing to the fight that the fans wanted to see and also laughed off the difference in size and weight.
"I have been fighting bigger guys like him [Antonio] Margarito and [Oscar] de la Hoya so it doesn't bother me," he said.
