Floyd Mayweather v Manny Pacquiao - Press Conference

Ali's daughter Rasheda told TMZSports that the former heavyweight champion is "Team Pacquiao all the way.”

"My dad really likes Manny. He's a huge fan of his," she added.

"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 claims that her father does respect the skills of Mayweather but that the pair are very different people away from the ring.

"My dad stood for things. Mayweather ... I don't think there's a comparison."

Ali will not be able to attend the highly anticipated clash in Las Vegas but he will be watching on television according to his daughter.

"There's no question he's going to order it. It takes my dad way back to when he was fighting."
