Clinton Endorses Pacquiao On 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'

HOLLYWOOD, CALIF. (April 3, 2014) – It was an evening of politics and pros when Fighter of the Decade and boxing's only eight-division world champion Congressman MANNY “Pacman” PACQUIAO took time from training for his upcoming world championship rematch with undefeated two-division world champion TIMOTHY “Desert Storm” BRADLEY to make another boffo appearance on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday night. This was Manny’s eighth appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! dating back to November 3, 2009, on the eve of his knockout victory of Miguel Cotto to claim the WBO welterweight title.

Kimmel opened the show with a monologue that featured a hilarious Pacquiao-starring commercial.  That was followed by a very entertaining interview with President Bill Clinton, who in the first segment endorsed Pacquiao’s rising career as a public servant and his political future.

“I hope he [Pacquiao] goes right on up the ladder. I think he’s a great guy and he’s a great role model for the country. He’s very strong and honest,” said Clinton.
 
The final segment featured Kimmel and Pacquiao discussing his upcoming challenge of Bradley, politics and the expected arrival of his fifth child due, which is due at the end of April.
