BOXING icon Manny Pacquiao says he was ‘honoured’ to meet Logan Paul after the YouTuber visited his Hollywood training camp.
The 42-year-old is preparing to fight Errol Spence Jr in Las Vegas in August – his first professional fight in two years.
Pacquiao took to social media to share his admiration of Paul after the pair met at Freddie Roach’s Wild Card Boxing Club.
The Filipino fighter has been training with the legendary coach, who helped Pacquiao become an eight-division world champion earlier in his career.
Pac-Man shared a picture of him and Paul on Twitter with the caption: “Honoured to have Logan Paul come to Wild Card Boxing Club today.
“After watching me working out he said he was glad he fought Mayweather instead of me.”
Paul, 26, fought Floyd Mayweather Jr, 44, in a controversial exhibition in June.
Their meeting ended in a draw, with fans describing it as the ‘worst fight of all time’ and ‘battle of the cuddles’.
Mayweather defeated Pacquiao in 2015 for the unfired welterweight title, one of the most anticipated fights in modern boxing history.

Pacquiao has been taunting his old foe in the build-up to his next bout, claiming Spence, 31, is a better fighter than Mayweather.
And Pac-Man has insisted he’s fighting the best and not ‘non-boxers just to get paid’ – alluding to Money’s exhibition with Paul.
But Mayweather has also been teasing Pacquiao, claiming he will give Spence ‘pointers’ on how to beat the boxing veteran.
Pacquiao’s fight with Spence is one of the biggest of the year, with Tyson Fury set to meet Deontay Wilder for the WBC heavyweight crown in October.
The two were due to fight in July but their bout was postponed after Fury reportedly tested positive for Covid-19.
