Celebrities have been tweeting about Mayweather-Pacquiao for 5 years
One of the reasons people are so excited for Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather's May 2 fight is that boxing fans have been asking the pair to get in the ring together for such a long time.
In anticipation of the match, Twitter has gone back through celebrity feeds on the social media site to find pleas for Pacquiao and Mayweather to make a deal to fight over the last five years.
Celebs from Vanilla Ice to Shaq have pleaded for the fight on Twitter and now they are only a few days away from finally seeing what many are calling the fight of the century.

Mayweather's frenemy 50 Cent has seen his opinion change several times over the years.
Justin Bieber has remained fairly constant n his desire to see his pal Mayweather jump in the ring with Pacquiao.
Basketball legend Magic Johnson was also particularly vocal about getting the dream card put together before either boxer hung up his gloves.
