Photo: Manny Pacquiao pulls away from the LAX airport following his arrival from the Philippines, Saturday night in Los Angeles. The assignment from Top Rank seemed easy enough: fly in from Vegas, wait a couple hours for Paquiao’s 16-hour flight from Manila to arrive, shoot the champ as he arrives, fly back to Vegas. The last two arrivals, Pacquiao slipped out the back door leaving photographers empty-handed. This time, we were ready and, while hundreds of fans awaited their Filipino idol at Arrivals, Pacquiao was met at the back door. The shot above was taken behind the black glass of Manny’s SUV limo as he pulled away – thank God for RAW, is all I have to say. Photos by Chris Cozzone for Top Rank.
