LAS VEGAS – Each time Manny Pacquiao fights in Las Vegas, Hollywood celebrities and sports personalities are also in attendance to watch the fighting congressman.

Among them were Jack Nicholson, Pamela Anderson and Charles Barkley.

Pacquiao’s former opponents Shane Mosley and Miguel Cotto were also in the audience. Both boxers were defeated by Pacquiao via unanimous decision.

Kabayan Noli De Castro, Mayor Atienza, Senators Ralph Recto and Jinggoy Estrada were also at the Pacquiao fight.

Pacquiao’s fellow congressmen were also present to support him.

National anthem singers are also one of the most anticipated performances of the night — from shoes to gown, everything is in detail.

American Idol runner-up Jessica Sanchez’ red gown by Kenneth Barliss was a head turner.

“When I do the anthem, I just want the people to know what I’m singing for the country and I don’t think I need to change much,” Sanchez said. “I know everybody likes it more traditional. I’m going to keep it the same.”

Kapamilya stars Rayver Cruz, Maja Salvador, Gerald Anderson and Enchong Dee were also among the thousands of spectators.

“This was my first experience at a live boxing match and Manny won — congrats Manny!” Dee said. “You can feel every punch.”

From the who’s-who to ordinary Pinoys, kababayans from all over the world are all jubilant and in high spirits for Pacquiao’s victorious comeback.
