Reigning NBA Finals Most Valuable Player Kawhi Leonard was among the thousands who watched last Saturday as Manny Pacquiao battered Keith Thurman in their WBA welterweight title bout in Las Vegas (Sunday, Manila time).

The newest member of the Los Angeles Clippers watched as Pacquiao knocked down Thurman in the first round en route to a split decision win that made him the new champion.

Afterward, the famously stoic Leonard visited Pacquiao in his locker room, where they snapped a photo that the "Pacman" then shared on social media.

Both Pacquiao and Leonard cracked huge smiles after the Filipino boxer's hard-earned triumph.

Leonard helped the Toronto Raptors win the NBA championship in June, beating the Golden State Warriors before signing with the Clippers.
