Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. have had a contentious relationship from the very beginning. Things only got worse when Mayweather made it a personal mission to half-insinuate, half-blatantly state that he believed that the Filipino champion’s success was the end result of performance-enhancing substances. Of course, defamation lawsuits and various back-and-forth jibber-jabber ensued once those accusations were made, and one of the most highly anticipated fights in the history of boxing got derailed because of the fallout.
These days the relationship between Pacquiao and Mayweather is probably the best it’s ever been (because they don’t completely hate each other), and a fight appears imminent. However, despite the fact that the bad feelings have sort of been buried, you have to figure that Pacquiao smirked a little when he found out that Mayweather would have to take his talents to Clark County Detention Center for 90 days in early 2012.
And that smirk likely turned into full-blown grin when he was made aware of the luxurious confines in which his undefeated arch rival would be held.
For those that haven’t seen it, here is where Mayweather will find himself for 90 days just after the start of the new year:
If Pacquiao didn’t believe in karma before, he most certainly does now.
