Boxing journalist Lance Pugmire wrote a nice piece about the mega-fight on the Los Angeles Times, but apparently someone on their staff messed up and printed the wrong photo. Here's a snapshot of the newspaper which has been making the rounds online:

Instead of printing a photo of Mayweather, they actually had one of Manny's former opponent in Timothy Bradley.

MMA obviously has had its share of mishaps like this, but with a bout and publication as massive as this, it really will be noticed and put out there quicker. But hey, at least it wasn't Phil Davis on the photo.
