Manny Pacquiao’s bout against Timothy Bradley has been delayed a bit because the Filipino fight icon was busy watching Game Seven of the Eastern Conference finals between the Miami Heat and the Boston Celtics.
A big Celtics fan, Pacquiao was watched through the end of the game, necessitating a bit more time to go on his pre-fight plan to warm up his calf on the treadmill.
In a television interview, Pacquiao trainer Freddie Roach said that it was part of the team’s preparation for the fighter to warm up his calf, which had bothered him in two previous fights.
The Celtics succumbed to the Heat, 101-88, in Game Seven.
Bradley said he did not mind the delay.
