Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao meet at NBA game: Is this the sign rematch is on?

The pair were both in attendance as Los Angeles Clippers hosted the Charlotte Hornets at Staples Center in LA.

Pacquiao, who trains at Freddie Roach’s WildCard gym in LA, was there as part of a Filipino heritage night as he continues his preparations for his clash with Adrien Broner a week on Saturday.

The eight-weight world champion hopes a win over Broner could lead to a rematch with Mayweather later this year.

Mayweather out-boxed Pacquiao when they finally met in the ring back in May 2015.

The American, who stopped Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in an exhibition bout last month, insists he is staying retired.

But Pacquiao signed with Mayweather’s influential advisor Al Haymon last year as talks began about a possible return fight with his long-time rival.

Talks are expected to resume after the Broner fight when Mayweather, who boasts a 50-0 record, will make a definite decision on whether or not he wants to come out of retirement again.

But the meeting at a basketball game sparked memories of when the pair exchanged numbers after a Miami Heat match in 2015.

That meeting was said to have been crucial in getting their first fight agreed after years of failed negotiations between their teams.

Pacquiao was scheduled to be at the LA Clippers game on Tuesday night but Mayweather made a late decision to travel from his Las Vegas home.

‘Money’ took his private jet to LA before flying straight back after the game had finished.
