Pacquiao 'Open' To The Idea of Visiting Mayweather in Jail

By Osman Rodriguez

WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao doesn't rule out the possibility of visiting his career rival, Floyd Mayweather Jr., at the Las Vegas Detention Center.

On June 1, Mayweather started an 87-day sentence for a domestic abuse charge. Pacquiao defends his title on Saturday night against Timothy Bradley at the MGM Grand.

The boxing world is still hopeful of seeing a potential fight between Mayweather and Pacquiao. All of that could come to an end if Bradley, a 5-1 underdog, scores a major upset on Saturday.

"I don't know. We didn't have any conversations with him. I'm so focused and concentrated on the fight on Saturday," Pacquiao said.

"I'm open [to the idea], I would [consider it]. He is my brother in Christ and I pray for him that everything will be fine."

Pacquiao says he is ready to fight Mayweather, but not for a flat fee of $40 million dollars. He would face Mayweather for a 50-50 deal with similar agreement on the pay-per-view backend. Mayweather has refused to guarantee Pacquiao any portion of the pay-per-view profits.
