Will Manny Pacquiao Have Psy 'Gangnam Style' Phenom Walk Him to the Ring?
Ed Mulholland-US PRESSWIRE

Just when you thought that universally over-exposed record-breaking viral phenom Psy and his "Gangnam Style" was about to die out, it somehow made its way into the second episode of HBO's Pacquiao/Marquez 4 24/7.

As the mc of Pacquiao's young daughter's birthday party announced that Manny will be performing a song with his daughter and friends that he selected, I honestly thought to myself oh man, will this be a new remix of "Sometimes When We Touch?"

No, it was even more cheesy than that. It was "Gangnam Style," the unexplainable earth-shattering phenomenon viral hit that just can't seem die out, or even slow down for that matter.

Recently, the Korean rap star broke a major milestone record when his video "Gangnam Style" became the most watched video of all-time on YouTube with over 805 million views and rising by the tens of millions daily!

"Gangnam Style" was already the most liked video of all-time on YouTube back in September with then over two million "likes" on the video.

Psy has appeared everywhere from the MTV Awards, Saturday Night Live, Ellen and even a very legit smash up with former dance master MC Hammer at the American Music Awards.

So where else can "Gangnam Style" be found?

Well, because of Manny, HBO's 24/7, an award-winning reality series, known for having great classic music and inspirational soundtracks to better grasp the drama of the fighters training camps can now be added to the ever expanding list of things that "Gangnam Style" has been part of.

"Gangam Style" also has numerous copycats and versions done by everyday people to major famous celebrities.

Manny Pacquiao actually has a few Gangnam Style performances floating around YouTube that have reached hundreds of thousands of views already as well.

However Manny Pacquiao's dance moves unfortunately do not seem to be all that great. As you can see in his Gangnam Style videos, he seems to be off-beat and even forgetting the choreography and basic dance moves which makes him not in sync with his own set of backup dancers who all seem to have the actual dance moves down.

Let's hope his moves inside the ring against the great Juan Manuel Marquez are much more sharp and graceful when they square off for the fourth chapter of their rivalry next Saturday, December 8 at MGM Grand in Las Vegas on HBO PPV.

But how can one of the biggest boxing stars on the planet one-up his out-of-the-ring nemesis Floyd Mayweather next Saturday?

Well, Floyd Mayweather surprised many when he had the former YouTube most viewed record champion, Justin Bieber, walk him into the ring for his bout last May against Miguel Cotto.

I personally figured out that Floyd was going to have the Biebs walk him into the ring, as I made the bold prediction via Twitter just days before that fight.

As soon as Justin was seen holding one of Floyd's belts and walking him to the ring, many of my followers on Twitter gave me props for calling it like it ended up happening.

So, Manny can one-up Floyd this time by having the newly-crowned king of YouTube, Psy, walk him into the ring, which will guarantee a ton of buzz for the Filipino Congressman fighter.

It might seem crazy and random, but Psy pretty much has already shown up virtually everywhere else imaginable, so I would not be surprised if Psy was seen dancing and rapping his way to the ring for the Pac Man on December 8.
