When Harry Met Manny

Nevada Senator Harry Reid, a former boxer, welcomed the man widely considered the best pound-for-pound boxer in the world, Manny Pacquiao, to the U.S. Senate on Tuesday.  Pacquiao is no stranger to Reid’s business, as he is a Congressman in his native Phillipines.  Senator Reid honored Pacquiao’s accomplishments in boxing and public service during special remarks on the Senate floor, followed by a joint press conference in which the two spoke highly of each other.  In a statement, Reid called Pacquiao a personal friend as well as “a true friend of Nevada’s, where his sport is a major player in our economic arena.”  The two also exchanged national flags.

Pacquiao’s next bout is against “Sugar” Shane Mosley on May 7 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.  Last weekend, Pacquiao and Mosley visited Vegas to greet fans and answer questions from the public about the fight.
