HOLLYWOOD, CALIF. (May 26, 2012) — Fighter of the Decade, eight-division world champion, and boxing’s No. 1 pound-for-pound fighter and box office attraction Congressman MANNY “PacMan” PACQUIAO took time from training for his upcoming defense of his WBO welterweight title against undefeated world champion and Top 10 pound-for-pound fighter Timothy Bradley, Jr. to make another boffo appearance on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Thursday night. This was Manny’s sixth consecutive appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in as many world championship promotions, dating back to November 3, 2009 when he knocked out Miguel Cotto to claim the welterweight title. That 2009 appearance also marked Manny’s U.S. network TV debut, which has since led to a multitude of network television, radio and magazine features, including, CBS’ 60 Minutes, ABC’s Good Morning America, CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight, ABC’s Nightline, FOX News Channel’s On The Record With Greta Van Susteren, CNN’s America Morning, NPR’s Morning Edition and Weekend Edition, Playboy, Sports Illustrated and cover stories in TIME and Newsweek.


After catching up with Manny on his life and training for his upcoming world title defense, Kimmel proposed mediating negotiations between Pacman and Floyd Mayweather, Jr. with the stipulation that each fighter could bring only one representative.
