The boxing world has been buzzing about talks to put Grand Rapids native WBC welterweight boxing champion Floyd Mayweather, Jr., in the ring with WBA champ Manny Pacquiao.

On Tuesday night, it appears to have gotten a step closer to happening.

The talks to have the two get in the ring have gone on forever, but it got interesting when Floyd showed up at a Miami Heat NBA game also attended by Pacquaio.

They shook hands and had a quick discussion, which has boxing fans more hopeful than ever that a
fight this big could actually happen.
 Twitter burnt up with what went down and whether it signifies

Associated Press Sports Writer Tim Reynolds, who witnessed the meeting, claimed contact info was exchanged.


Miami Herald beat writer Joe Goodman was there for the exchange as well, and he was also confident the meeting would yield results.

But he also got shoved trying to capture the moment.

Pacquaio-Mayweather fight, but any conjecture at this point would be purely speculative, as the boxing world has a way of self-destructing on good ideas.
