Mitt Romney, who lost to incumbent President Barack Obama on Nov. 6, visited the dressing room of Manny Pacquiao, and Juan Manuel Marquez, before their big rumble at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Romney greeted a seated Pacquiao, and said, "Hello Manny. I ran for President. I lost," drawing guffaws in the Pacquiao dressing room. "Wish you good luck tonight. Congratulations on your race and your fight. Congratulations, way to go, have a great night. Thanks guys."

He also checked in with Marquez, and was seen in the front row for the first TV fight, between Patrick Hyland and Javier Fortuna. Romney was accompanied by his wife, Ann. The ex-Massachusetts governor also shook hands with rapper-promoter 50 Cent.
