LOS ANGELES (AP) — Manny Pacquiao welcomed a high-profile visitor to his training camp Saturday with ties to his native Philippines: Tim Tebow.

Pacquiao is preparing for his much-anticipated fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. on May 2 in Las Vegas. The Heisman Trophy-winning former Florida QB posted photos on Instagram of the two together in Pacquiao’s gym in Los Angeles.

“Awesome being with my Filipino and Christian brother,” Tebow posted on his Instagram account.

Tebow, who is known for being very open about his Christian faith, was born in the Philippines to missionary parents.

Pacquiao spokesman Fred Sternburg said Tebow and Pacquiao know each other and embraced when Tebow came to the gym.

Promoter Bob Arum was also there and they watched Pacquiao spar seven rounds, Sternburg said.

    Just to show the differences. In the Philippines, newspaper, TV and other promotional articles, comments, etc. say NFL SuperStar Tim Tebow. Only here in the US do they describe him as a SuperStar when it makes more money for them to do so and gets them more cheap thrills when it suits them to call him NFL Bust or whatever.

    Of course, Mark Waller’s comments about the NFL needing to find a way to break open the International Market or risk watching not only the league but Football slip out of its #1 position here in the US can’t be found anywhere here in the US. You have to check the British Sports Media for it.

    I don’t know WHAT NFL Media exists for. But it’s NOT to any benefit of Football, the NFL or even its own audience, Football Fans. It’s pollution.
