The Filipino superstar talked with the host about recording his own entrance music for the fight, and Kimmel admitted that he is a huge fan of the tune, and asked if he could sing Pacquiao into the ring.

The pugilist decided to give Kimmel a chance and the two performed a duet of the song "Lalaban Ako Para Sa Filipino" ("I fight for the Filipino") in Pacquaio's native tongue of Tagalog, with Kimmel hoping to become the new Justin Bieber.

In addition to the duet, Pacquiao sat down with Kimmel's other guest, television therapist Dr. Phil, to work through some of his issues that lead him to use his fists instead of his words.

With Dr. Phil's blessing and Jimmy Kimmel's dulcet tones leading him to the ring, Pacquiao may just become the favorite in this fight.
