The legendary Pacquiao wants to help Ukraine in the war with Russia, announced a new fight


Multiple world champion, boxing legend from the Philippines Manny Pacquiao, who last year announced his retirement from big-time sports and subsequently defeated the presidential elections in his homeland, is starting to get more and more interested in exhibition fights.

As we previously reported, Pacquiao is set to enter the ring in December against South Korean martial artist DK Yoo. The fight will take place in Seoul (South Korea), and the bulk of the proceeds will be sent to help Ukraine, which suffered from a full-scale invasion of Russian invaders.

In addition, Manny is going to have another exhibition fight in January 2023 against his former sparring partner and current lightweight from France Zhaber Zayani (18-0, 11 KOs). This event is planned to be held in Saudi Arabia.

At the same time, Pacquiao notified the French media that negotiations are still in their infancy.

Recall that the last official performance of Manny was the fight against the Cuban Yordenis Ugas in August last year, which he lost on points.
