Manny Pacquiao recently received a thoughtful and timely gift from attorney Robert Shapiro.
With his fight against Floyd Mayweather quickly approaching on May 2nd, Pacquiao was gifted a new speed bag that has Mayweather’s image plastered on it by Shapiro.
I doubt it will help Manny hone his technique anymore than a regular speed bag but its a fun little gift and I’m sure Manny’s camp can find plenty of good uses for a Mayweather punching bag.
As for Mayweather, the boxer isn’t far behind in using an opponent’s face as motivation. At his final media workout before the big fight, Mayweather placed a picture of Manny near his own speed bag to act as motivation.
