Manny Pacquiao is just a couple of days removed from his latest win in the ring. On Saturday night in Dallas, he crushed Antonio Margarito, handily winning a unanimous decision while beating the much bigger Mexican fighter to a pulp.

And yes, Pac Man has plenty of interests outside the ring, including his family, singing and a career in politics.

But it appears that the world's best pound-for-pound fighter is making a quick transition to his next venture: the world of video games.

In this video, Pacquiao jokingly reminisces about his early matches against the fighters from the late '80s class Nintendo game, Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!

Asian champion Piston Honda?

"[He] was champion," Pacquiao recalls. "Then I knocked him out."

Then, to get more recognition, he knew he'd have to step out of his weight class. Who was next on the docket?

King Hippo.

But Pacquiao knocked him out with a trademark shot to the belly.

"I remember King Hippo," he says with a straight face. "What a fat ass."

Pacquiao's video game rise continued until he made it nearly to the top. His final opponent on the road to stardom in the United States was the glamorous Super Macho Man.

But the Filipino sensation sent him to the canvas for good with a left-handed uppercut.

"Super Macho Man, two words," Pacquiao remembers, "douche bag."

Great video game, great fighter, hilarious delivery.
