A lot of people have stopped by the Wild Card Gym in Los Angeles to see boxing legend Manny Pacquiao train. It is, after all, not something that you get to see everyday.
From celebrity host and boxing aficionado Mario Lopez, to Rocky Balboa himself, Sylvester Stallone, when Manny Pacquiao is at the gym, everyone becomes a fan.
During his last day in Wild Card before heading out to Las Vegas, two more notable people stopped by to wish Manny well on the final leg of his camp.
Among them was Secretary of Agriculture Manny Piñol, who happens to be in the US for a string of meetings and trade shows. He may even be able to catch the fight.
"On the way down to Palm Springs, we were able to make it down to watch live sparring. I think he moves very well. He appears very confident." Piñol told ABS-CBN's Steve Angeles.
Aside from Piñol, 12-year old boxing prodigy Amari "Tigress" Avery also stopped by to watch Pacman put some work in.
In less than a week, months of Pacquiao's hard work will be tested as he challenges Jessie Vargas for the WBO welterweight championship at the Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
