MANILA, Philippines – Are the band members of The Script rooting for Manny Pacquiao in his much-awaited fight with Floyd Mayweather, Jr on May 2? (READ: 5 unforgettable moments from The Script Manila concert 2015)

It does seem that way! Halfway through their concert on Friday night, April 17 at the Mall of Asia arena, The Script guitarist Mark Sheehan thrilled Filipino fans by showing off a pair of boxing gloves signed by Pacquiao himself.

This happened halfway through their set, after the band played “Nothing,” a single off their 2010 album Science & Faith

Sheehan tried the gloves on, while frontman Danny O’Donoghue asked the audience who they will be supporting on May 2. (READ: IN PHOTOS: The Script live in Manila 2015)

Much to the amusement of the crowd, O’Donoghue and Sheehan also did some mock fighting with the gloves as props.

O’Donoghue “fought” Sheehan, who used the Pacquiao gloves. 

O’Donoghue feigned being knocked out by a punch from Sheehan – to roars from the Pinoy crowd. 

It was, of course, all in good fun as fans around the world anticipate the huge fight between the Philippines’ own boxing champ Manny Pacquiao and the powerful Floyd Mayweather, due on May 2 (May 3 in Manila). –
