Pacquiao to see action in PBA All-Star Weekend
The Fighting Senator will see action at the 2016 PBA All-Star Weekend.
Mahindra playing-coach Manny Pacquiao will participate in the Blitz Game on Friday, replacing teammate LA Revilla in the Stalwarts team on Friday at Smart Araneta Coliseum.
He will be joined by Chris Banchero, David Semerad, and Raymond Almazan, D-League stars Mike Tolomia, Russel Escoto, Raphael Banal, and Carl Bryan Cruz, and legends Alvin Patrimonio, Nic Belasco, Ronnie Magsanoc, and Topex Robinson in the team.
They will face the Greats team, bannered by Johnny Abarrientos, Kevin Alas, and Mac Belo in the exhibition game.
Pacquiao was activated by the Enforcers on Tuesday in lieu of Revilla, who broke his nose in practice on Monday.
He is expected to suit up in Mahindra’s game against Alaska on Wednesday.
This will be Pacquiao’s first game in close to nine months after playing for two games in the Philippine Cup.
