Floyd Mayweather has a lot of people on his side for his upcoming superfight against Manny Pacquiao. To the surprise of a few, Muhammad Ali isn’t one of them.
Ali and Mayweather are both known for their cocksureness, but The Greatest prefers Pacquiao because of his personality, according to Rasheda Ali. He’s actually a big fan.
“He knows Manny’s a great fighter,” Rasheda said. “But it’s more about what he does outside the ring. He’s such a charitable person.”
As for the similarities between Ali and Mayweather, it’s well known that the former was an activist — he lost some of his career because of it. Mayweather, on the other hand, is also known for his domestic disputes.
“My dad stood for things,” Rasheda said. “Mayweather … I don’t think there’s a comparison.”
Ali won’t be in Las Vegas, but he’ll be there in spirit when Mayweather and Pacquiao face off on May 2.
