Manny Pacquiao Video: Watch Pacman Imposter Brutalize Boxing Legend

Manny Pacquiao has become a legend in the boxing world, and that comes with several perks in and out of the ring. One of the drawbacks, though, is that you will become the target of some jesting. The video is a spoof of American Idol, and the judges for the show are welterweight boxing legend Manny Pacquiao and his trainer, Freddie Roach. The guy playing Pacman looks a bit like the boxer, but it s his extremely off-the-wall accent that makes me laugh. He starts struggling with his English like Pacquiao does from time to time, but it s the gloves and boxing getup that are the funniest. When the actor starts talking about bighting Floyd Mayweather then mentions going to congress and signing, I didn t think it was going to get much funnier. That was until I saw the actor playing Pacquiao s trainer Freddie Roach. The guy playing Roach is right on with his impression, from the facial expressions to the soft voice, and the duo are the perfect comedy pair.Roach shoots steroids into the arm of Pacman in the video and sends him into a frenzy. While the topic is taboo in the boxing circles, a sketch comedy show leaves all those personal reservations in the dust. The skit goes completely crazy when the bell rings and Pacquiao starts punch everything in sight, including an American Idol contestant.Fake Pacman starts to sing and do push-ups, and there is no way to end it better than having him knock out a stagehand. Overall, a very funny video. Check back for more on boxing as it comes, and check out Bleacher Report s Boxing Page to get your fill of boxing. Follow @Donald_Wood
