FILIPINO boxing legend Sen. Emmanuel “Manny” Pacquiao is all set for a boxing return albeit in an exhibition atmosphere.

Pacquiao, who placed third in the 2022 Philippine presidential elections, will fight Korean YouTuber DK Yoo.

Yoo, a sports and fitness instructor and the founder of the Warfare Combat System, announced the development in an Instagram post on Wednesday last week.

“For a special match with Pacquiao in the Philippines,” read the caption of Yoo’s post with photos of him and Pacquiao signing and showing what appeared to be contracts for the fight.

Pacquiao, the only eight-division world champion, announced his retirement from boxing in September last year, a month after he lost to Cuban Yordenis Ugas via unanimous decision.

Pacquiao, 42, finished his boxing career with 62 wins, eight losses and two draws.

The contract signing and the official announcement of the fight is slated on July 20.
