He didn't take Jessie Vargas as seriously as he's taking this legendary eight-time world champion in Manny Pacquiao. This was Filipino Heritage Night, and Pacquiao was an invited guest.
Pacquio leant down to Mayweather, who stayed seated, and shook the undefeated American's hand before moving on.
With Mayweather retired, Pacquiao is the most recognizable active boxer today.
"I've never seen Adrien this focused and I've been around him for years", Cunningham said. Floyd beat Pac Man on points in a 2015 blockbuster, returning scores of 116-112, 118-110, 116-112, but the beaten fighter was hampered by a shoulder injury and that took a bit of the shine off the result.
Pacquiao won the secondary 147-pound belt by dominant seventh-round knockout of slugger Lucas Matthysse in July in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and sent him into retirement.
Fernandez kept on telling Pacquiao not to forget to duck and weave past Broner as soon as throws a combination. "But Pacquiao turned pro when Broner was five years old, and he's had a lot of professional fights, so we'll have to see if the Pacquiao's turns old in this fight". Broner dethroned DeMarco and earned a vacant WBA crown against Allakhverdiev, his fourth in as many divisions. If his weight's good - which it looks to be, it should be no problem - he might shake out maybe one more day in Vegas just to get the cobwebs out. Being an exhibition bout, Pacquiao felt it should have been brutality-free. If I'm Floyd I wouldn't do that.
"But I'm not thinking about that now".

Los Angeles has proven to be a team of road warriors, and is playing at their best all season, coming off one of their most dominant defensive performances against the Ravens.
Duterte said during Pacquiao's 39th birthday bash in 2017 that the Filipino icon would make an ideal president.
"Rest and recovery is definitely a key part of training".
"Right now at this age sometimes you can not recover overnight".
Pacquiao continued his streak of being perennially tardy, stepping into Wild Card Boxing in its nondescript Hollywood strip mall location about an hour later than expected.
It's all rumour and hearsay at present but we know it's a rematch Pacquiao would welcome before he retires and will fancy his chances against a man who hasn't faced a recognised opponent since Andre Berto in the summer of 2015.
Roach is only interested in Broner and a rematch with Mayweather. Supposedly the fight will be on ESPN PPV for $59.95, which seems insane except it might be a better fight than Broner-Pacquiao, which Showtime is selling for $79.95.
Pacquiao, who has been repeatedly asked about a possible rematch with Mayweather, pulled no punches when commenting on his former foe's one-sided New Year's Eve exhibition victory over a Japanese kickboxer that lasted two minutes.
