LOS ANGELES – Manny Pacquiao may be preparing for his bout against Joshua Clottey but during his final media day workout Wednesday in Los Angeles the pound-4-pound champion had other things on his mind.
"If I had to live my life without you near me, the days would all be empty," Pacquiao sang to a handful of media members before he was to appear on the Jimmy Kimmel Live Show.
Pacquiao was once again a guest on the Jimmy Kimmel Live show again Wednesday night and he sang Glen Medioras’ 1980’s hit love song "Nothing’s Going to Change My Love For You."
Pacquiao’s first appearance on the Kimmel show was right before the fight against Miguel Cotto last November. He said he loved being a guest on the late night talk show so much last year that he decided to do it again for this fight.
"I like Jimmy Kimmel because he’s kind of funny," said Pacquiao. "It’s a funny show. It’s for the fans that. The fans wanted me back there and guest and it’s a good show."
And the fans definitely did want to see the pound-4-pound champion again on the show.
Hours before the taping in Hollywood, hundreds of fans lined up for a chance to see Pacquiao perform.
"We’re here to see Manny," said an excited Paolo Amador. "Pacquiao’s the man, man. The best boxer in the world!"
Some even imitated Manny’s first appearance on the show by singing "Sometimes when we touch."
Vince Caluag, a 21-year-old student, said it’s great to see a person from the Philippines represent Filipinos on a mainstream late night talk show like Jimmy Kimmel Live.
"He just represents the Filipinos so well," said Caluag. "He’s a great model for our country, a great person and he’s humble too."
It’s not known if Pacquiao will continue to make appearances on the Kimmel show before each of his fights, but if he continues to win after each appearance, expect Pacquiao to become a regular late night figure.
