MANILA, Philippines —  Manny Pacquiao is set to face Korean YouTuber DK Yoo in an exhibition match in December.

The eight-division world champion, who retired from boxing last year, could be returning to the ring, but this time, for an exhibition fight.

Martial Artist Yoo, who also has 654,000 subscribers on his YouTube channel, announced that he would fight Pacquiao in an exhibition match in a short video two weeks ago.

The 43-year-old was part of the video, accepting the Korean’s challenge.

“DK Yoo, see you in the special event this coming December,” Pacquiao said. “God Bless and be safe.”

A contract signing is set to take place on July 20 in Manila with both fighters present.

The Filipino boxer’s rival, Floyd Mayweather Jr.,  has seen action in several exhibition matches in the past years.

Pacquiao called it quits in September last year after losing to Yordenis Ugas.

The incumbent senator tried his luck in the 2022 presidential elections last May, but he came in third with 3,663,113 votes.
