Manny Pacquiao just left Los Angeles this week for a road trip to Las Vegas for his big upcoming fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. Before his send off, he treated friends and family out to a mega sushi meal at Hollywood's Kabuki, spending about $4,200.

After church service on Sunday, the 36-year-old boxer brought nearly 100 guests with him to the sushi restaurant, The Philipine Star reports. Pacquiao dropped $3,700 at the same spot just a week earlier, and was there earlier this month as well. He must really like Kabuki.
