Speaking with TMZ, Ali’s daughter, Rasheda Ali revealed that his father is a huge fan and will be cheering Manny Pacquiao who takes on Floyd in the richest boxing fight at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday, May 2, 2015.
‘My dad is team Pacquiao all the way, my dad really likes Manny, he’s a huge fan of his, he knows Manny’s a great fighter but it’s more about what he does outside the ring. He’s such a charitable person.’
Meanwhile, Muhammad Ali who has been battling Parkinson’s disease for close 35 years, won’t be making an appearance for the fight, but the most important is that he will be supporting Manny Pacquiao.
