It takes a lot to impress the regulars at the Wild Card Gym, located on Vine Street in the Hollywood section of Los Angeles. Celebrities from all walks of life wander in and out of Freddie Roach's tiny gym all the time.

But the regulars were impressed on Thursday.

Legendary musician Bob Dylan, who used to train as a boxer under Bruce "Mouse" Strauss, wandered into the gym to watch Manny Pacquiao train for his April 12 pay-per-view bout at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas against WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley.

Bradley had the edge on Pacquiao on the celebrity meter during this camp. Bradley attended a charity tennis tournament hosted by comedian Will Ferrell in Palm Springs, Calif., and posed for a photo with actor Kevin Spacey and Ferrell.

But getting an unsolicited vision from Dylan, the Rock 'N Roll Hall of Fame musician, pushed the Pacman ahead of his rival from that standpoint.
