Warriors’ Klay Thompson reacts to Manny Pacquiao’s epic offseason deal
Golden State Warriors sharpshooter Klay Thompson recently visited Filipino boxing legend Manny Pacquiao during his training in Wild Card Gym in Los Angeles. In his visit, he received an offseason offer from the legendary fighter that is hard to refuse.
As Pacquiao shared on Twitter, he offered to teach Thompson how to fight but in return, the Warriors star would give him shooting lessons.

A couple of days later, Klay Thompson gave his true thoughts on Manny Pacquiao’s offer. For the other half of the Splash Bros., it’s certainly a “fair deal.” He then proceeded to heap praise on Pacman, who is preparing to fight Errol Spence Jr. on August 21 in Las Vegas.
“Manny told me he’d teach me how to fight if I teach him how to shoot I think that’s a fair deal,” the Warriors superstar wrote on Instagram along with a basketball, boxing gloves, okay and face with tears of joy emojis.
Thompson then proceeded to praise Pacquiao for his work ethic, adding that watching the Filipino champ really hyped him up.
“Thanks for letting me watch you work Manny Pacquiao. I haven’t been that juiced leaving the gym in a long time!” Klay furthered.
Pacquiao certainly doesn’t have a lot of time left before his big fight with Spence, so he probably can’t practice his shooting right now. However, it will certainly be intriguing to see the two reconnect after the fight and take each other up on the deal. That would definitely be an epic sight!
