PHOTOS: MANNY AND FLOYD CROSS PATHS AT CLIPPERS-HORNETS GAME

Rival boxing superstars Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr crossed paths again, this time at the Los Angeles Clippers vs Charlotte Hornets NBA game Tuesday at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Pacquiao was invited to grace the Clippers' Filipino Heritage night.
Pacquiao and Mayweather bumped each other in Japan last September while both were attending a concert and there were talks that the two will stage a rematch of their May, 2015 fight that Mayweather won.
Mayweather, who banked a $9 million payday last Dec. 31 in Japan by staging an exhibition fight against Japanese MMA fighter Tenshin Nasukawa, was adamant telling the press that he is retired and will no longer fight Pacquiao.
Their meeting Tuesday night however was reminiscent of their accidental meeting during an NBA game in Miami in January, 2015 that led to their mega fight four months later.
Pacquiao is currently in Los Angeles in the final week of his training camp in preparation for his title fight against Adrien Broner of the United States on Jan. 19 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.
