LOS ANGELES - Three generations of Filipino boxing legends met atop an LA landmark during Manny Pacquiao's morning jog.

Boxing legend Gerry Peñalosa joined Pacquiao on the Griffith park jog, while Luisito Espinosa met with the Pacman outside the Griffith Observatory.

Both Peñalosa and Espinosa will watch Pacquiao’s fight against Timothy Bradley live next week in Las Vegas.

Pacquiao’s wife Jinkee also hiked up the Griffith park trail, but she was far, far behind Pacquiao and the rest.

“Sobrang pagod, as in pagod but ayos lang, at least, na pawisan,” said Peñalosa after their jog.

For his part, Espinosa said he missed training for boxing.

“Namiss ko nga eh... parang gusto ko ngang magjogging. Nakalimutan ko ngang magdala ng sapatos, siguro bibili ako,” said the former boxing champion.

Black Eyed Peas’ Apl de Ap did not make it to the jog.
