The number of Manny Pacquiao celebrity friends continues to grow. One particularly special guest paid a visit to ‘Pacman’ this week ahead of his latest bout with Jessie Vargas next weekend.
Pacquiao will take on Vargas next Saturday (November 5th) for the WBO welterweight title while also trying to balance his training with a full-time job as an elected Senator of his home country.
Manny Pacquiao celebrity friends always tend to frequent his training camp in the lead up to one of his fights, but this week none other than Sylvestor Stallone stopped by his gym:

Most boxing fans will know Stallone of course for his famous acting role in the legendary boxing cult movie series ‘Rocky’.
There has been concerns by Pacquiao’s promoter Bob Arum about how his charge might perform this weekend following his part-time training program around his full-time political duties – but by all accounts Pacquiao seems to be looking as sharp as ever.
Certainly this video on his Instagram account would suggest as much:
