Mayweather vs. Pacquiao Finally Boxing...On Gay Marriage Issue
Modern superstars of boxing Manny Pacquaio and Floyd Mayweather are finally boxing each other, not from the actual boxing stage, but in regards to the issue of gay marriage.
According to a report, Mayweather and Pacquiao are at it again with heated duel of words after Pacquaio made a comment that he's not in favor of same-sex marriage.
This whole thing apparently started when Pacquaio made a comment criticizing President Obama on the latter's pro-gay marriage stance. Pacquaio had said:
"God only expects man and woman to be together and to be legally married, only if they so are in love with each other. It should not be of the same sex so as to adulterate the altar of matrimony, like the days of Sodom and Gomorrah of Old.
On his tweet on Twitter Mayweather lashes out on Pacquaio saying, "I stand behind President Obama and support gay marriage. I'm an American citizen and I believe people should live their life the way they want."
For his part, Pacquaio said he was only misquoted on the news and tabloids and he's not against gay people.
Well, it looks like the next "Thrilla in Manila" is already happening way before the actual hotly-anticipated and long-awaited fight, if it's ever going to happen, of these two legendary boxers. Let the taunting game fight begin.
