“Bob Arum, the fight’s promoter, was a staunch Romney supporter. He told Yahoo! Sports “I think it’s great to have him here.”

Romney visited Pacquiao’s dressing room about two hours before Pacquiao walked to the ring. According to Pacquiao publicist Fred Sternburg, Romney extended his hand to Pacquiao and said, “Hi Manny. I ran for president and lost.”–box.html
