After being eliminated in the NBA playoffs at the bubble in Orlando, Portland Trail Blazers superstar Damian Lillard had to kill some time on social media.

One that caught attention was when he answered one of the longest debates in boxing, who is better? Manny Pacquiao or Floyd Mayweather Jr.

It did not take much time for Lillard to respond as he picked Mayweather.

Fans reacted to the answer and are still debating, that will probably last for a while.

Mayweather and Pacquiao met in the last in 2015, wherein the American won via unanimous decision.

Their match was dubbed as the Fight of the Century.

Millions of fans and celebrities tuned in to fight and many were not satisfied as they felt like the action was limited.

Mayweather was known for his defense and running techniques while fighting, that’s why up until now rumors about their rematch are still being accepted by the fans.

But do you agree with Lillard that Mayweather is better than Pacquiao?

Does the professional record the basis? Or the achievements?

Lillard is an avid boxing fan, thus, he has his reasons for picking Mayweather.

But what we can all agree for is that they are both among the greatest boxers ever.
