LAS VEGAS >> A car carrying Manny Pacquiao has tapped bumpers with another car in the pound-for-pound champion's caravan a few hours before his fight with Sugar Shane Mosley.
Pacquiao wasn't hurt in the minor car accident Saturday on the way back to the MGM Grand casino from the nearby Mandalay Bay casino, where he attended Mass.
According to Pacquiao's publicist, Fred Sternburg, a security car lightly tapped the back bumper of Pacquiao's car at a stoplight. Nobody was injured, and no police report was filed.
Trainer Freddie Roach said Pacquiao would be ready to fight.
Pacquiao (52-3-2, 38 KOs) is going for his 14th consecutive victory at the MGM Grand Garden. The Filipino Congressman has won world titles in a record eight weight classes.
