Pacquiao to appear on 'Kimmel' TV show before Cotto bout

Proof that indeed, he already gained international fame, Filipino ring icon Manny Pacquiao is set to appear on the popular US late night show “Jimmy Kimmel Live" two weeks from now.

Pacquiao will be guesting in the program hosted by Kimmel and broadcast over ABC on Nov. 4, marking his first-ever appearance in a major American prime time show.

His appearance also comes exactly 10 days before his World Boxing Organization (WBO) welterweight title fight against Puerto Rican Miguel Cotto in Las Vegas, Navada.

The world’s top pound-for-pound king is set to leave for the U.S. Saturday night together with trainer Freddie Roach and Alex Ariza to resume the remaining two weeks of his training camp at the Wild Card gym in Los Angeles.

He spent more than a month getting in shape for his fight with Cotto at the Shape-Up gym in Baguio City.

Ever since he stunned Mexican legend Marco Antonio Barrera with an 11th round technical knockout in 2003, Pacquiao has become one of the biggest names in boxing this decade.

His meteoric rise to become the best fighter in the world, pound-for-pound, was validated when he beat up the great Oscar De La Hoya in their so-called “Dream Match" last year for eight full rounds and followed it up with a two-round demolition of Ricky Hatton last May.

The interview with Pacquiao comes in the heels of a recorded 1.80 million audience that watched the “Jimmy Kimmel Live" episode last September when formerundisputed heavyweight champion Mike Tyson appeared in the show - GMANews.TV
