PHOTO: Jeremy Lin Meets Manny Pacquiao Ahead Of Floyd Mayweather Fight

Due to injury, Jeremy Lin’s season is over, which means he can now focus on relaxing, recharging and getting ready for free agency in July.

However, for boxer Manny Pacquiao, things are only just getting started.

On Wednesday, Pacquiao, who is currently preparing for a huge fight with Floyd Mayweather next month, posted a photo of Lin and himself on his Twitter account.

“Thank you @JLin7 for coming to show your support,” the Filipino wrote. “Thank [you] for showing your love for the Lord and being a good example.”


Pac-Man is set to fight Mayweather on May 2, and it was revealed today that he’s been preparing for the much-anticapted contest by sticking Floyd’s face on one of his speed bags:

While Pacquiao is a Boston Celtics fan, he’s good friends with Kobe Bryant, too.

However, the Black Mamba is also a supporter of Mayweather, so it’s not currently clear who the five-time NBA champion will be rooting for during next month’s bout in Las Vegas.
