We caught up to Kobe Bryant after his team was defeated by the Miami Heat 78-75 on Tuesday night at Staples Center. Bryant is an avid boxing fan and has visited the Wild Card gym in Hollywood to watch Manny Pacquiao train.
We asked Bryant his thoughts on what might happen should a fight between Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. come to fruition. Bryant did not make a prediction, but he did have two interesting thoughts.
First, he said, “Manny Pacquiao is going to have to make some adjustments.”
Bryant also gave Mayweather quite a compliment.
“Floyd Mayweather is a boxing genius,” Bryant said.
