IT might be an exhibition match, but the world would like to see the legendary Manny Pacquiao at least one more time when he engages South Korean martial artist, DK Yoo Sunday in a six-round boxing match at the Korea international Exhibition Center in Goyang, South Korea, with more than 30,000 people expected to be in attendance.

The exhibition match will be available as a pay-per-view event on TapGo TV (app.tapgo.tv/home) beginning at 11 a.m.  

Pacquiao, who retired from professional boxing with a 62-8-2 win-loss-draw record, said that he will use the earnings from this exhibition match to help build homes for the unfortunate. 

He lost his last fight  in August 2021 via unanimous decision to Yordenis Ugas for the World Boxing Association super welterweight title.

The Filipino great’s opponent is DK Yoo, a 42-year-old self-defense instructor and martial arts practitioner who previously competed in a non-scoring exhibition bout against mixed martial arts fighter Bradley Scott.

Yoo has observed that despite Pacquiao being the overwhelming favorite, he will give the former Philippine senator trouble because of his size—he stands 5-foot-10—and athleticism.

The co-main event pits American Olympian Nico Hernandez (8-0), who won a bronze medal in the 2016 Rio Olympics, against Jae Young Kim (6-1-1) in an eight-round match.

The undercards schedule is as follows: 

South Korean Min Wook Kim (16-1) battles American Marcus Davidson (5-0) in a six-round match.

California native Sean Garcia (6-0) takes on Seung-Ho Yang (2-1-1) in a four-round match.

Las Vegas-born Maurice Lee (13-1-2) battles Korea’ Shin-Yong Kim (4-3-1) in six rounds, and Marcell Davidson (3-0) collides with Korean Yoon-Bin Han (2-0) in a four-round affair.

End it…end it
