Manny Pacquiao hasn’t been retired for a year yet, but he’s already planning to return to the ring.
But it’ll be in an exhibition match. Korean YouTube DK Yoo revealed in a YouTube video that he will be facing Pacquiao in December. The eight-division world champion appeared in the video and seemed to confirm the news.
“DK Yoo, see you in the special event this coming December,” Pacquiao said. “God Bless and be safe.”

Pacquiao, who turns 44 in December, has not fought since a unanimous decision loss to Yordenis Ugas, who retained his WBA “super” welterweight title, a title that once belonged to Pacquiao.
The legendary Filipino boxer retired a month later and pursued a presidential run in the Philippines. He landed third in the election.
As for Yoo, the Korean YouTuber previously fought MMA fighter Bradley Scott in a pay-per-view event. Scott outclassed Yoo in the six-round bout, though no official results were given.
