MANILA, Philippines – Former US presidential candidate Mitt Romney shook hands with boxing icon Manny Pacquiao inside his locker room at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas ahead of the Filipino champion’s non-title bout against Mexican Juan Manuel Marquez Saturday night (Sunday morning in Manila).

Romney was  spotted among thousands eagerly anticipating what has been considered one of the greatest rivalries in boxing.

Sugar Shane Mosley, who lost to Pacquiao via unanimous decision in May 2011, also visited his former opponent.

Pacquiao, in a gray jacket with blue trimmings with his “MP” logo, arrived with wife Jinkee.

    Meeting Romney, who lost the election – harbinger of things to come for Pacquiao???

    Romney could have been a much better alternative to this bopol, mayabang at aroganteng ulikba sa White House.  Republicans are good with foreign policy than these selfish Democrats.  Philippines would have a better chance at getting aid and support with the Republicans.  Kaso nagpagoyo mga kano.
