Paris was accompanied by her sister Nicky, and the two even stayed to grace the post-fight press conference.

Paris had the chance to personally meet the Filipino boxing sensation and his wife Jinkee, and was reportedly impressed by the couple's humility despite their stature.

"Hanging out with @MannyPacquiao and his beautiful wife Jinkee. They are such a sweet & down to earth couple! Love them! :)" Paris posted on her Twitter account.

Another text posted by Paris on her Twitter account reads: "Pacquiao is the champion! Pac Man is an incredible fighter!"

The three made the most of the occasion by having their pictures taken together.

It was also revealed that Paris will visit the Philippines later this year, and will visit the champion boxer's home and his family.

"Can't wait to visit then when I go to the Philippines," posted Paris.

As expected, Pacquiao's ring bout against Mosley has attracted a number of high-profile personalities, like football Hall of Famer Michael Irvin, former boxing heavyweight champion Mike Tyson, women's super middleweight champion Laila Ali, and Brandon Jacobs of the New York Giants, among others.
