Pic: Floyd Mayweather Jr. takes in Glory 12 in New York

Floyd Mayweather wasn't watching Manny Pacquiao on HBO pay-per-view (PPV). Instead, he was in New York City watching Glory 12 live.

When you're Floyd Mayweather Jr. you can do anything you want. Literally.

Last night (Nov. 23, 2013) while the majority of the combat sports world was tuned in to watch Manny Pacquiao face Brandon Rios on HBO pay-per-view (PPV), "Money" was in New York City taking in the Glory 12 Lightweight tournament at the Theater at Madison Square Garden.

Say what you want about the guy, but Mayweather showing up and watching a kickboxing card instead of the Pacquiao vs. Rios fight could be a huge deal. His name is synonymous with success and having him in the crowd at least raises the status of the Glory card a little bit.

The above photo was snapped during the Andy Ristie vs. Giorgio Petrosyan bout. Petrosyan has been compared to Mayweather as they are both extremely technical in how they breakdown an opponent's defense. Ristie would go on to not only upset Petrosyan (.gif here) but also win the entire tournament (.gif here).
