Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao are just days away from their long-awaited May 2 superfight at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. But the two boxers each took time away from their training schedule this weekend to spend time with family and loved ones.
Pacquiao’s wife, Jinkee Pacquiao, shared a series of photos of the boxer and their children on Instagram this weekend as they attended church and gathered for a family outing. Jinkee Pacquiao is staying in Los Angeles to spend time with her husband while he trains for his bout against undefeated Mayweather. The Pacquiaos, who have been married for 15 years and have five children together, recently purchased a house in Beverly Hills, the Daily Mail reported.
Mayweather’s girlfriend Doralie Medina – who goes by the moniker “Bad Medina” – also took to Instagram to share a photo of the two together on Sunday. Mayweather and Medina have reportedly been together since 2014.
Mayweather and Pacquiao have agreed to a 60-40 split of what is expected to be the richest fight purse in boxing history. Regardless of who wins, both men will likely earn more than $100 million, the New York Times reported. Mayweather’s earnings could approach $180 million.
Both fighters have trained furiously in recent weeks to prepare for the bout, which was finalized this year after years of negotiation and delays. Mayweather has never lost a professional bout, while Pacquiao holds a 57-5-2 professional record with recent convincing victories over Chris Algieri and Timothy Bradley. Pacquiao’s trainer, Freddie Roach, discussed his preparation in a recent interview with ESPN.
“He is in top condition. Manny is a freak,” Roach said. “He runs, and his condition -- we don’t have to worry about that. He’ll never lose a fight because he’s too tired. It just doesn’t happen. It’s impossible.”
