Whether or not Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao will ever meet in the ring is among boxing’s greatest  questions.

But as noted by Ryan Maqui├▒ana of Comcast SportsNet, they once shared the same ring on the same night more than a decade ago..

The date was November 10, 2001. The venue was the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Franciso.

Pacquiao battled to a technical draw with junior featherweight counterpart Agapito Sanchez, after which Mayweather knocked out Jesus Chavez in the ninth round of their junior lightweight clash.
