Remember that time when we showed you guys that undefeated boxing star Mark 'Magnifico' Magsayo had a sweet looking jumpshot? 

Well it turns out that he's learning from a pretty good coach. 

You've probably heard of him, dude named Chris Newsome? Starred in the UAAP with Ateneo and now tearing it up in the PBA for Meralco? Yeah, that guy.

Over the weekend, Magsayo got some shots up at the Meralco Gym in Ortigas as 'Coach' Newsome was looking on. 

Well, a couple of days ago, it was Newsome who got in some training with Magsayo at the boxing gym.
