Additionally, he has also dabbled in other sports such as basketball. Along with this, Pacquiao also has a music video way back in 2015.

Now, Pacquiao wishes to take on a challenge of the mind. On October 1st, Pacquiao would face off against the 10-year-old computer version of Carlsen in the Magnus Carlsen Celebrity Challenge.

I am very much excited to play Magnus Carlsen, the world chess champion. This is something that doesn’t happen every day and I will be placed in a different arena this time around“, said Pacquiao.

Meanwhile, Carlsen responded by asking “Are you ready to rumble?“.

The Pacman hopes that he could be the first-ever non-chess-related celebrity to beat Carlsen’s younger version in the Play Magnus app. Still, the event itself is for a good cause.

Through the event, Pacquiao wanted to promote the “Stop Asian Hate” campaign as he would donate $5,000 to his chose charity for partaking in the event.
