LOS ANGELES - After beating up sparring partners the whole week at the Wild Card Gym, here is one sparring session the 'Pacman' can't win.

But it is also the most enjoyable.

Philippine boxing hero Manny Pacquiao spent a relaxing day off from gym training by treating an ever-growing entourage to lunch in his favorite Japanese restaurant Kabuki in Hollywood after Sunday church service.

The eight-division world champion quietly greeted friends, family and guests during lunch, but his eyes brightened up when his youngest child, Israel, was handed to him after his meal.

Like any doting dad, Pacquiao had a grand time playing around with the toddler who also got his 'licks' in while messing up dad's hair more than any opponent atop the ring had done to the champ.

And not even a year old, Israel Pacquiao looks like a very active baby - sign that he can quite an athlete like dad, if mom Jinkee will approve.
