Muhammad Ali's daughter Laila just told TMZ Sports that her dad won't be able to attend the Floyd Mayweather/Manny Pacquiao fight on May 2. But he will have a rooting interest in the fight when he watches it from his home, and he will be cheering for…

"My dad is Team Pacquiao all the way!" Laila said. "My dad really likes Manny. He's a huge fan of his. He knows Manny's a great fighter…but it's more about what he does outside the ring. He's such a charitable person."

OK, so "He's such a charitable person" isn't exactly the strongest endorsement of all time. But regardless of the reason, Ali is going to be in Pacquiao's corner on fight night.
