In his final workout in LA before heading out to Los Angeles, Manny Pacquiao met with an elderly couple named John and Maria Roman
If anyone ever tells you that you're too old to work out, show them this.
Before heading to to Los Angeles for his WBA (Super) Welterweight World Championship bout against American Keith "One Time" Thurman this coming weekend, eight-division world champion and reigning WBA (Regular) Welterweight World Champion Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao worked out one last time in Los Angeles.
Now, a Manny Pacquiao workout usually draws in quite the crowd, but this time around, there were some extra-special visitors in attendance.
After his morning run, Pacquiao met with John and Maria Roman.

81-year old Tatay John and 91-year old Nanay Maria got to interact with the Pinoy boxing icon and were even given some Team Pacquiao shirts.
Nanay Maria also got to join in on the workout as she worked on her core as Team Pacquiao did some sit-ups.
Possibly Manny’s oldest fan, 91 year old Nanay Maria Roman came to visit the Fighting Senator at his final run and workout at Griffith Park.

"He is a kind man, he is a lover of people, so we are very grateful that I saw him here, and it was my privelege that I have seen him personally," said Nanay Maria
Just last week, Manny Pacquiao was also able to touch the life of a young stage-IV cancer patient named Joshua Gabazon. The Manny Pacquiao Foundation will be flying Gabazon out to Las Vegas as well to watch Pacquiao-Thurman live and in person.
