Manny Pacquiao is one of the most respected and loved boxing names on the planet. The eight-division champion enjoyed a terrific career in boxing and he truly remained an icon for a long time. On top of this, Pacquiao often showed his brilliance in other life verticals like politics, charity, or maybe having an extra skill for the sport of basketball.
But recently, Manny Pacquiao raised substantial eyebrows by displaying his prowess on the pool table as well.
Since his retirement from pro-boxing last year, ‘Pac Man’ is in the news with his life in the politics segment. However, he takes out time for himself, thus taking up activities that help him stay active.
That said, Pacquiao went to enjoy his time by playing the game of pool this time and he even had a few fans to witness him do magic.
In 2021, the Senator took up the ring space only once, and that eventually turned out to be his final boxing bout. In this fight, he locked horns with WBA welterweight ‘super’ champ, Yordenis Ugas. For obvious reasons, Pacquiao was a favorite to win.
But he found umpteen difficulties in reaching Ugas’ chin. Consequently, the 43-year-old couldn’t do much and he capitulated to a UD loss.
Since then, Pacquiao made himself busy with other life activities including sports like pool, basketball, and more. In fact, Manny Pacquiao made headlines as he was on the line to square off with a former rival in a charity basketball game.
Who will Manny Pacquiao take on in a basketball contest?
The Senator is in contention to square off with no one else but Floyd Mayweather. The two men engaged in the richest boxing fight back in 2015.

Since then, there were massive rumors about them facing each other again. However, the two might not meet inside the ring, but they seem to battle each other out on the basketball court.
Until now, there’s no clarity on this charity basketball contest. But things seem to get clear in the coming few weeks.
