Manny went for the handshake.
Floyd went for the dap.
The result was … well, it was a mess.
Floyd was sitting on the court at Staples Center in L.A. to watch the Lakers take on the Warriors (they lost) … when Manny came up from behind to say “What up.”
The handshake greeting was a disaster — but they got the point across.
The big problem … Manny reportedly suffered an eye injury during his victory over Adrien Broner this past weekend — which could throw a huge wrench in the rematch plans.
According to reports, Manny feared he suffered a detached retina in his left eye. Later, his manager said the eye was “fine” and he’ll be okay.
Manny was wearing shades at the game — so you can’t see if the eye looks damaged on the surface.
As we previously reported, Manny and Floyd have been teasing a rematch for months … and with both fighters looking pretty solid in their last fights, it seems a deal could be close.
The two originally fought back in 2015 — with Floyd winning a unanimous decision in a pretty boring fight.
We recently spoke with Manny who told us he had a bad shoulder at the time — and now that he’s fully healed, he’s confident he would whoop that ass.
No deal has been made at this point — but we’re guessing it’s just a matter of time … considering the money these guys could rake in.
There were other big stars at the Lakers game, too — incuding Halsey, Alexis Ren, Mahershala Ali and Jack Nicholson and LeBron James … who was a spectator last night due to injury.
Get well soon!
