Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather meet

Everyone has been anticipating the fight of the century between Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao! Of course it made sense to seek the opinion of boxing legend, Muhammad Ali. See who Ali thinks will be the next champ!

Check out the details below!

TMZ caught up with Muhammad Ali’s daughter, Rasheda Ali, to see what the champ thought about the upcoming Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao fight!

My dad really likes Manny. He’s a huge fan of his.

Besides Pacquaio having a mean pair of hands, Ali admires him as a person.

He knows Manny’s a great fighter … but it’s more about what he does outside the ring. He’s such a charitable person.

Furthermore, Pacquaio and Ali have been friends for a few years now. He came to Ali’s 70th birthday party back in 2012.

Rasheda explains that her father respects Mayweather as a fighter…I mean his stats don’t lie. However, as far as a person, they are two very different people.

My dad stood for things. Mayweather … I don’t think there’s a comparison.

Unfortunately, the boxing legend won’t able to attend his friend’s match, but he will be watching on the big screen!

I’m not shocked by Muhammad Ali’s choice and reasoning behind it. What are your thoughts? Who will be the new champ? Comment below!
