Manny Pacquiao was a special guest on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! Wednesday night. Kimmel, the self-proclaimed “lucky rabbit’s foot” of Pacman, has had the Filipino icon on his show before every fight for the past three years, with the first appearance taking place just one week before Pacquiao’s successful challenge of then-WBO welterweight champion Miguel Cotto. It was Pacman’s seventh time on the show.
After catching up with Manny on his life and training for his upcoming high-stakes welterweight battle against Juan Manuel Marquez, Kimmel announced Manny’s next fight – against sidekick Guillermo Rodriguez — with his own all-access unreality segment, 24/7 Pacquiao/Rodriguez 4, which also featured Rodriguez’s trainer Yehya, Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum and Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach.
