Jimmy Kimmel thanks Pacquiao for allowing him to be his ‘Bieber’
Manny Pacquiao may have lost his much ballyhooed fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr., but at least one of his friends got something out of it.
Late night show host Jimmy Kimmel expressed his disappointment with his friend’s loss on Twitter but also thanked Pacquiao for allowing him to become Justin Bieber.
Even for just one night.
“Disappointing result but what a fight – thank you for making me your Bieber Manny Pacquiao – you are a champion.”

Kimmel asked Pacquiao to be part of his entourage then Pacquiao gave his approval by dropping by Jimmy Kimmel Live in April.
Bieber has walked out with Mayweather in previous fights and the Canadian pop star did so again on the Pacquiao-Mayweather fight.
Kimmel had the sole of idea of becoming Pacquiao’s Bieber as a spoof complete with an oversized hat, oversized jacket, bling, and a t-shirt with a Pacman figure going to chomp Mayweather heads.
