Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao has expressed his desire to see action in the PBA All-Star Weekend to be held in Digos City, Davao del Sur.

According to the league’s media bureau chief Willie Marcial, Pacquiao made his desire known through Davao del Sur congressman Mark Cagas, his colleague in the House of Representatives. Pacquiao represents Sarangani province in the Lower House.

Marcial said Pacquiao can play in the Legends versus Stalwarts game scheduled on Friday. The match features current PBA stars teaming up with retired hoops legends.

The league is waiting from a phone call from Pacquiao to confirm his participation.
