Boxing legend Manny Pacquiao touched down in the Cayman Islands Friday afternoon ahead of his appearance at the Island Rumble boxing night Saturday.
The eight-division world champion was greeted by a small crowd of fans as he emerged from Owen Roberts International Airport just before 3 p.m.
Flanked by event promoter Matthew Leslie and a cadre of security guards he was whisked immediately to a waiting vehicle, pausing briefly to wave to fans and shake hands with a few well-wishers through the open window of the car.
Pacquiao will host the boxing event at Truman Bodden sports complex tomorrow. This is his first visit to the Caribbean and a large crowd is expected.
