Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather met for the first time by chance during the halftime of an NBA game, raising hopes that talks for a fight later this year might get serious. The boxers were watching the Miami Heat-Milwaukee Bucks game Tuesday night in southern Florida from their courtside seats when Mayweather walked across the floor at halftime. The two spoke briefly and afterwards Pacquiao said that it was the first time he had spoken face-to-face with Mayweather. "He and Manny had never had a chance to meet," Pacquiao's adviser Michael Koncz told ESPN.com.
