Video: Manny Pacquiao bans selfies ahead of Floyd Mayweather super fight on May 2

She blinded me with science iPhone.

I've got bad news for combat sports fans hoping to capture a moment with boxing superstar Manny Pacquiao, as Team "Pac Man" has banned selfies leading up to the Floyd Mayweather mega-fight on May 2, 2015 inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The Filipino might get injured.

I'm sure it has nothing to do with the actual picture-taking process, but the last thing we need is some clumsy fan stepping on his pinky toe or giving him the flu by way of proximity germs. In fact, I vote we turn him into the boy in the plastic bubble until fight night, just to be safe.

As for Mayweather?

He's probably too busy stuffing his mouthguard with "Money" to notice.
