SAN DIEGO -- A couple of local boxers from Undisputed Gym Downtown helped Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather prepare for the fight of the century.

Boxer Angel Rodriguez played the role of Mayweather for Pacquiao and Boxer Giovanni Santillan played the role of Pacquiao for Mayweather.

The two boxers went to the respective training camps where their purpose was to mimic the opposition as closely as possible. Rodriguez's coach said the training was top secret and they were not able to tell anyone until the week of the fight. Most importantly, it was an experience of a lifetime for his boxer.
