Everyone was awestruck by Dylan...
Rolling Stone reports that Bob Dylan attended a training session for boxer Manny Pacquiao, who is preparing for a fight with WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley.
Dylan went to the Wild Card Boxing Club in Los Angeles, California on Thursday (March 13) to watch Pacquiao spar before his upcoming match. According to Fred Sternburg, a spokesperson for Pacquiao: "I've never seen the place take an aura like this, and I've been going to that gym for nearly a decade. We were all awestruck."
He added: "Manny sparred eight different rounds with two different fighters while Dylan was there," says Sternburg. "He stayed for an hour and sat on a bench that you'd use to lift weights. Before and after the sparring, Dylan posed for photographs with anyone that asked and signed autographs. Some of the other fighters took selfies with him. He accommodated everybody and smiled the whole time. But, my God, it was Bob Dylan. It was like seeing one of the apostles."
