Suge Knight's attorney believes that Floyd Mayweather will come to the rescue of the rap mogul after 'wining' the May 2 bout

Floyd Mayweather and Suge Knight

While Manny Pacquiao is , his opponent in the upcoming May 2 mega-fight Floyd Mayweather is set to bail someone who has been accused of murder from jail.

Hip-hop mogul Suge Knight who has been in jail since the killing of a friend is hopeful that the millionaire boxer will bail him after he wins the May 2 bout.

The rap mogul was refused an appeal to have his bail reduced from $10 million to $5 million as he awaits trial for murder and attempted murder.

But his attorney Matthew Fletcher is hopeful and confident that Mayweather who is a close friend of the rap mogul will come to their rescue with the bail money.

"My understanding is that Suge is going to be bailed out this coming week," Fletcher told theNew York Daily News outside court.

"We think Mr. Mayweather is going to win the championship and then come champion the day again.

"They're good friends, and there's no reason he shouldn't. And we believe that will happen."

A rep for Mayweather however told TMZ that the boxer will not be paying the bail for Suge Knight as they have not had contact with each in years.
