Top notch boxer Manny Pacquiao reportedly has his eyes set on living in the same mansion previously occupied by music mogul Diddy.
According to reports, Manny has intentions to drop a few million on Beverly Hills real estate.
TMZ Sports has learned … Manny and his crew went to scope out the 10,000 square foot estate this past weekend and sources say he “really liked” what he saw. The mansion is insane — 7 bedrooms, 7.5 baths, home theater system, massive backyard and a SICK mancave with a pretty awesome wet bar. Diddy used to live in the home back in the day — and sold it in 2001 for $2.313 million. The new owners renovated the hell out of the place — and now it’s on the market for a cool $12.5 million … pocket change to a fat cat like Manny. (TMZ)

Mayweather announced the big fight after weeks of speculation last month.
“I am glad my decision to meet with Manny and discuss making this fight happen helped get the deal done. Giving the fans what they want to see is always my main focus. This will be the biggest event in the history of the sport. Boxing fans and sports fans around the world will witness greatness on May 2. I am the best ever, TBE, and this fight will be another opportunity to showcase my skills and do what I do best, which is win. Manny is going to try to do what 47 before him failed to do, but he won’t be successful. He will be number 48.” (“Shots”)
