Manny Pacquiao will make yet another guest shot on Jimmy Kimmel Live tonight, April 22, on ABC, beginning at 11:35 P.M. ET. This will mark the ninth time Pacquiao has appeared on Kimmel’s popular late-night talk show — more than any other active fighter — in their series of entertaining appearances together dating back to November 3, 2009, which was the week before Pacquiao vs. Miguel Cotto.

It was on that night that Pacquiao unveiled his singing chops, belting out a rendition of the Dan Hill-penned hit ballad “Sometimes When We Touch.” Manny and Hill collaborated on a remake which also became a hit. Subsequent appearances featured Pacquiao singing duets with Kimmel and Will Ferrell, and an uproarious send-up of HBO Sports’ “24/7” reality franchise, starring Pacquiao and Kimmel sidekick Guillermo.

That 2009 appearance also marked Manny’s U.S. network TV debut, which has since led to a multitude of network television, radio and magazine features. Pacquiao (57-5-2, 38 KOs), is in deep training for the eagerly-anticipated May 2 welterweight world championship unification battle against undefeated Floyd Mayweather.
