Jalen Rose confirms Mayweather Jr. vs. Pacquiao on May 2
It appears that a former basketball player and current ESPN sports analyst Jalen Rose may know something about the Mayweather Jr. vs. Pacquiao progress that no one else does.
Just this morning, Rose posed the following on this Twitteraccount in large bold font: “Again, cancel your Kentucky Derby plans & be in Vegas May 2nd for the billed Mayweather vs Pacquiao.”
It is entirely possible that Rose is friends with someone from camp Pacquiao or camp Mayweather Jr., perhaps even one of the fighters themselves. Making such a sudden and massive statement, and it being nothing but a hype job, would not go over well with anyone, especially the millions of boxing fans holding their breath for this fight to be announced.
Nowadays, anything mentioned about their potential fight gets a huge wave of public attention, spreading throughout the boxing forums like no other. Hopefully this is not a Twitter account hack, or a mistake.
