Video: Manny Pacquiao 'confused' by new Footlocker commercial

New, comments

Back in November, Footlocker trolled boxing sensation Manny Pacquiao (kayfabe) by telling him it was "really happening."

"Pac Man" thought it was talking about a fight with Floyd Mayweather, but instead it was referencing the "Week of Greatness," a time of year when the sneaker and apparel giant releases a bunch of new kicks that most of us can't afford and won't wear.

Watch that commercial here.

But now it appears that Pacquiao has the last laugh, because he will, in fact, fight Mayweather a week from Saturday night (May 2, 2015) inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Not that it came easy, but hey, just as long as we get there.
