Retired boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather Jr. may be visiting the Philippines soon to help his former nemesis and fellow great Sen. Manny Pacquiao with the latter's presidential campaign.

Mayweather revealed in an interview posted on FightHype's Youtube channel that he is going to participate in a celebrity basketball game with Pacquiao.

"Me and Pacquiao, we're actually gonna play basketball in the Philippines. That's coming up soon. I think January," said the unbeaten boxing champion.

"You already know what I got," he added, referring to his basketball skills.
