WASHINGTON (AP) – Manny Pacquiao is a knockout in the nation’s capital.

The boxer who has won eight world titles — and has been elected to Congress in his native Philippines — received the royal treatment on Capitol Hill on Tuesday.

Pacquiao was walked across the floor of the Senate by Nevada Sen. Harry Reid, himself a former boxer, and was scheduled to meet with President Barack Obama in the afternoon.

Pacquiao campaigned for Reid during the Democrat’s recent successful re-election bid.

Pacquiao is promoting his next fight, against Shane Mosley on May 7 in Las Vegas.
