Where would a former presidential candidate and a pint-sized reality star cross paths?

Vegas, baby!

With the campaign behind him, Mitt Romney has traded his focus on the ballot box for boxing. The former presidential hopeful sat ringside on Saturday night as Manny Pacquiao took on Juan Manuel Marquez at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Joined by his wife Ann, Romney never divulged which boxer he was rooting for. But according to Pacquiano's publicist, Fred Sternburg, the one-time candidate visited Pacquiano before the fight, telling the 33-year-old boxer, "Hello Manny. I ran for president. I lost."

Sitting not far from Romney and his wife, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi enjoyed the fight. The new mom is actually a boxing promoter and was on hand to support Dublin-born fighter, Patrick Hyland, who fought on the Pacquiao-Marquez undercard.

Pacquiao lost the fight after being knocked out in the sixth round.
