Manny Pacquiao Video: Watch the Boxing Star Record a Famous Cover Song

Manny Pacquiao is a world-famous boxer.

He's beaten countless opponents with a brutal attack and has become the best pound-for-pound fighter in the game today. Yet, he is a man with a softer side.

Deep down, he's a lover, not a fighter. The reality is that he has a soulful spirit and sometimes, he just has to sing. Based off his hilarious performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Pacman is recording a cover of Dan Hill's "Sometimes We Touch."

If you don't believe me, just watch the video of him belting out the tune, and you know, it really is time for the Pacman to release an album of nothing but duets with some of the biggest stars of all time. Don't act like you wouldn't download it on iTunes.

In fact, you're probably already thinking about some of the great collaborations we could get from it. I'll let you go wild with that in the comments, but on the unintentional comedy scale, this is about a 350 easily, with room for improvement.

It's a good thing that Pacquiao can pound your face in if you talk slick about him, because this is pretty funny, even if he's not half bad as a singer.

While I give him props for trying to branch out for boxing, I think I'm going to stick to paying attention to his boxing career and who he'll fight after pounding Shane Mosley into the dirt.
