Boxers are known for going to extremes to make sure they make weight for their fights. Manny Pacquiao was apparently not worried about this. Pacquiao spent some time on Friday eating a full meal before the weigh in for Saturday’s “Fight of the Century” against Floyd Mayweather. Even before he went to the scales to weigh in, Pacquiao enjoyed a delicacy: some Butterfinger Cups.
Normally this would be a bit confusing, since making weight is kind of a big deal in boxing. However, it didn’t matter, because Pacquiao weighed in at 145 pounds, two pounds below the necessary weight for a welterweight fight and one pound lighter than Mayweather.
Unsurprisingly, the fine folks at Butterfinger were really happy that Pac-man got a lot of press for eating their product.
