Hollywood actor and A-list host Mario Lopez may have been the first one to score a “selfie” with Manny Pacquiao after the Filipino superstar got back his WBO welterweight belt from American boxer Timothy Bradley Jr.
A few minutes after the announcement of Pacquiao’s victory, Lopez took to Instagram to share his photo with the Filipino while they were still inside the ring.
“With the Champ @MannyPacquiao in the ring after his big win,” he said in the caption.
Pacquiao was carrying his belt in the photo, with a visible cut above his left eye.
As of posting, the picture already has almost 3,000 “likes.”

In addition to his “selfie” with Pacquiao, Lopez also posted another picture with Pacquiao’s team including Freddie Roach.
Aside from being an actor and a host, Lopez is also a popular boxing commentator. In his earlier Twitter post, Lopez said he was at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas “to call the fights with Larry Merchant and The Colonel!”
Lopez is the host of the show “Extra,” which already had Pacquiao as a guest in the past.
