Boxer Manny Pacquiao was uninjured in a minor car accident today in Las Vegas and his team said he was still set for his fight against Shane Mosley at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

The Associated Press reported a car carrying Pacquiao lightly tapped bumpers with another car in the champion's caravan at a stoplight. Pacquiao wasn't hurt in the accident, which occurred on his way back to the MGM Grand from Mandalay Bay, where he attended Mass.

Nobody was injured, and no police report was filed. A Metro Police spokesman said Saturday he wasn't aware of the incident.

Reuters reported Pacquiao trainer Freddie Roach said Saturday the Filipino boxer was "ready to go."
