"Thanks for the love! Huge fan of yours!," New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin said in his Twitter account after the Boxing icon and Saranggani Representative Manny Pacquiao tweeted last February 13 saying "Jeremy Lin has stepped up just in the Knick of time. He is a great player," GMA News said
A day later after his praise for the Taiwanese-American boxer, rival American boxer Floyd Mayweather posted on his Twitter account saying, "Jeremy Lin is a good player but all the hype is because he's Asian. Black players do what he does every night and don't get the same praise."
The Mayweather tweet aimed at the Taiwanese-American player, Lin, drew criticism among fans, including UFC President Dana White.
Pacquiao tweeted a day after saying "God bless Jeremy Lin," And in reply to Lin’s latest tweet he said, "Jeremy, you make us all proud."
The two famous athletes were supposed to meet last week but the opportunity did not happen because of tight schedule.
