WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao is set to appear on popular late night show 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' Thursday at 12:05 a.m ET/PT on ABC.
For nearly three years, Pacquiao made sure he visits Jimmy Kimmel in his studio before heading to Las Vegas or other US venues for his blockbuster fights.
It was also in the Jimmy Kimmel show where Pacquiao had his singing debut on TV with his own rendition of Dan Hill's classic piece " Sometimes When We Touch" which made it to the top 10 on the Secondary Adult Contemporary Chart.
Pacquiao said he feels lucky whenever he appears on the show. The eight-division world boxing champion, who is now on his 16-fight winning streak, is set to face unbeaten Palm Spring boxing star Timothy Bradley on June 9 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nev.
During the interview portion of the show in November, Kimmel said, "Each time you've been here, you won the fight."

Pacquiao is now on his final phase of training at the Wild Card Gym in preparation for his upcoming fight with Bradley.
Last November, Pacquiao fought Mexican counter-puncher Juan Manuel Marquez in a trilogy which ended in a controversial majority decision in favor of Pacquiao.
Marquez claimed he was robbed of his victory by the judges who scored the fight in Pacquiao's favor. Marquez is asking Pacquiao's promoter Bob Arum for a fourth fight to settle the issue with Pacquiao.
Arum is in favor of another fight which could happen in November.
