It's probably safe to assume this Floyd Mayweather Jr. shirt didn't blend the Philippines flag into the design by coincidence.

After all, Manny Pacquiao is from the Philippines.

The two boxers are set to square off in Las Vegas this Saturday in the most anticipated fight in recent memory. As a way to let his fans commemorate the showdown, Mayweather's The Money Team website has been selling a "King of the Ring" shirt:

The shirt has sold out.

It looks like a clear attempt to try to get inside Pacquiao's head. However, the Filipino boxer didn't have a problem with the shirt. Here's what Pacquiao had to say about it, per Top Rank Boxing's Crystina Poncher:
