'Jimmy Kimmel Live!': Jimmy Kimmel Asks to Be in Manny Pacquiao's Entourage
Manny Pacquiao is set to compete in one of boxing's biggest nights in history on May 2nd, when he is set to face Floyd Mayweather in a welterweight bout at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

But Pacquiao took some time away from training to sit down with Jimmy Kimmel on Thursday, and Jimmy tried to convince Manny to let him be part of his entourage by singing some of Manny's entrance song in his native Tagalog language.

Jimmy also tried to persuade Manny to let him replace Justin Bieber in his entourage on the big night, even donning a similar outfit as Bieber. Manny jokingly replied that he'd consider the change.

Manny Pacquiao is a national icon in his home country, known of course for his boxing success, his singing, and he's even a politician.
