On Saturday afternoon, hours before his scheduled fight with "Sugar" Shane Mosley, welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao was reportedly involved in a car accident. Luckily, Pacquiao apparently sustained no injuries, and is still expected to fight Mosley on Saturday night. From TMZ Sports:
Sources close to Pacquiao tell TMZ he was traveling in a fleet of cars after church today, when one of Manny's security vehicles collided with the car carrying Manny.
We're told Pacquiao is back at his hotel now, where his trainer, Freddie Roach, checked him out. According to our source, Pacquiao is just a little shaken up ... but he's okay to go for tonight.
This is certainly good news for fans of Pacqiuao, the world's most popular fighter. TMZ's account seems to indicate that it wasn't too much more than a fender-bender, so apart from making his team's heart skip a beat, no harm done.
