Manny Pacquiao, Olympian Michael Martinez meet in Los Angeles
Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao and the sole Philippine Olympian in the 2014 Sochi Olympics, figure skater Michael Martinez, finally met on Monday, according to a report on GMA News' Unang Hirit, which said the two met at a dinner party in a restaurant in Los Angeles.
Pacquiao is training in LA for his upcoming rematch against American Timothy Bradley Jr, set for April 12 (April 13, PHL time) at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. Bradley Jr. won in controversial fashion the first time the pair faced-off on June 9, 2012 (June 10, PHL time).
After competing in the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics, Martinez went to the United States on February 27 to train for the World Junior Figure Skating Championships in Bulgaria on March 10 to 16.
However, he withdrew from competition, where he was supposed to compete in the Junior Men Single category, after being advised by his doctor and coach to take it easy and recover from multiple injuries.
Pacquiao most recently was also observed by music legend Bob Dylan during one of his training sessions. - Amanda Fernandez / AMD, GMA News
