Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre (or GSP) visits Pacquiao during his training.

St-Pierre who is on a three-day visit to the Philippines to promote the Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) sport, now becomes the latest celebrity to visit Manny Pacquiao on training.

The 32-year-old St-Pierre, who is visiting the country for the first time, immediately took the chance to meet the seven-division world boxing champion at the Elorde gym in Quezon City.

“What a heck of a team,” said St-Pierre when Roach introduced to him conditioning coach Alex Ariza and Pacquiao sparring partners Glenn Tapia and Michael Medina.

Manny Pacquiao warmly welcomed St.-Pierre and thanked him for his support.

“I look forward to watch your next fight,” St.-Pierre said. “Hopefully, one day you’ll take on Floyd Mayweather and knock him out.”

Georges St.-Pierre will have an MMA fight match against welterweight challenger Josh Koscheck on December 11, 2010.

Meanwhile, the Manny Pacquiao-Antonio Margarito fight will be on November 13 at the Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, which is expected to be an action-packed boxing bout.
