Fans were given at least one less conflict to worry about, though, when Bob Arum, Pacquiao's promoter, announced Friday that the start of the fight would be delayed until Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals ends. Pacquiao, an eight-division champion and congressman in his native Philippines, is a huge Celtics fan.

"I'm not waiting for Manny's request on this one," Arum said, according to FightNews.com. "We will not begin the Pacquiao-Bradley main event fight until the Celtics and Heat finish their playoff game. Now Manny, the Heat, the Celtics and sports fans watching the basketball game won't have to make a choice between events. They will be able to watch both."

Celtics coach Doc Rivers said he was aware of Pacquiao's decision. "He's a Celtics fan, what do you expect?" Rivers said Friday in a conference call. "Pretty cool, though."

That's what I'm talking about. Let's Go Celtics! Let's Go Manny! Where our Filipino Celtics fans at?!
