American late night television host Jimmy Kimmel took to Twiiter to express his gratitude to Manny Pacquiao for allowing him to become part of his entourage during his bout against Floyd Mayweather Jr. held Saturday night (Sunday Philippine time).
“Disappointing result but what a fight – thank you for making me your Bieber [Manny Pacquiao] – you are a champion,” wrote Kimmel on his Twitter account moments after the judges awarded Mayweather a unanimous decision win.
Last week, when Pacquiao made his guest appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Kimmel asked Pacquiao whether he would consider allowing him to join his entourage. “I will,” Pacquai responded.
Kimmel, who shared his ‘fight outfit’ on his Twitter account was going for a Bieber-esque look, since Justin Bieber is known to be a fan of the unbeaten American boxer.
The 47-year-old Kimmel, dressed in a shirt sporting a Pacman figure about to eat small images of Mayweather’s head, matched with a black sports jacket, gold chains and a fedora, was right behind the Filipino boxing icon as he walked towards the ring at the MGM Grand Stand in Las Vegas, Nevada.
