Manny Pacquiao to return to ring in an exhibition match in Japan

Former boxing champ Manny Pacquiao has signed a deal with Rizin Fighting Federation in Japan to fight in what’s likely to be an exhibition match in that country, reports Boxing News24.

The announcement comes just one month after he fought in another exhibition match with South Korean martial artist and YouTuber DK Yoo last month when he won a six-round unanimous decision, reported Yardbarker.

His next opponent is expected to a Japanese fighter who has yet to be announced.

Pacquiao rival Floyd Mayweather has also participated in exhibitions produced by Rizin Fighting.

Ironically, Pacquiao has been critical of Mayweather for fighting lesser opponents.
