Pac-man is back in the stu.
Boxing superstar Manny Pacquiao is more than just a fighter. In his native Philippines, he is member of congress, an actor, a pro basketball player and one of the nations biggest singing stars. Though he announced his retirement from singing some time ago, Pacquiao has picked the mic back up since inking the deal to fight Floyd Mayweather on May 2nd. Pac-man recently hit the studio with composer Lito Camo and laid down the vocals for “Lalaban ako para sa Pilipino”, which translates to “I will fight for the Philippines,”.
In a move that echoes back to the days of Roy Jones Jr performing his own songs on the way to the ring, Manny will use this track as his entrance music for the mega fight against Mayweather. Philippines TV station SAKSI captured exclusive footage of Pacquiao putting together the ballad. This is sure to add another interesting storyline to an already hyped showdown.
