UFC welterweight champion, Georges St-Pierre is on a 3-day trip in the Philippines to promote the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
While in Manila, the Canadian fighter wasted no time when he got the opportunity to meet the best boxer in the world, Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao, who is also UFC President Dana White’s favorite boxer to watch.
GSP also got some training in with boxing trainer Freddie Roach–Roach and GSP trained together for a few weeks over the summer at the Wild Card in Hollywood.
What impressed St-Pierre the most about Manny Pacquiao was his work ethic and how fast he was on the mitts.
“He’s the fastest guy I’ve ever seen in my life. Both his hands and his feet. He’s fast. He’s amazing,” said St-Pierre after witnessing Pacquiao’s pad work.
