While the world waits, and waits, and waits, and waits for Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Maweather to step into the ring together, the Filipino is keeping busy training for lesser names on his schedule — he’ll put his WBO welterweight belt on the line against undefeated American Chris Algieri on Nov. 22 — while also immersing himself in the world of Filipino professional basketball.

And when he’s not doing that, he’s singing the praises of the soon-to-get-going NFL on national television.

This news should not come as a surprise. Pacquiao has a long, storied history as a singer.

His skills are so great, he’s been parodied on the ESPYs.
