“The Greatest” has picked a side in the fight of the century — with Muhammad Ali‘s daughter telling TMZ Sports, “My dad is Team Pacquiao all the way!”
We spoke with Rasheda Ali — who’s very close with her dad — and she tells us, “My dad really likes Manny. He’s a huge fan of his.”
“He knows Manny’s a great fighter … but it’s more about what he does outside the ring. He’s such a charitable person.”
Rasheda says Manny and her father have been friends for years — and he even came to Muhammad’s 70th birthday party back in 2012.
As for Floyd Mayweather, Rasheda tells us her dad respects him as a fighter — but says he and Muhammad are two VERY different people.
“My dad stood for things. Mayweather … I don’t think there’s a comparison.”
Unfortunately, Muhammad won’t be attending the fight in Vegas … but Rasheda says he wouldn’t miss it for the world.
“There’s no question he’s going to order it. It takes my dad way back to when he was fighting.”
