MANILA – Manny Pacquiao’s global stock value is still on the rise despite claims of his in-ring performance being “on the decline.”
In a report by ABS-CBN News’ Dyan Castillejo, the eight-division world boxing champion will be having dinner with England's Prince Harry on January 22nd.
“I was invited by Prince Harry himself,” Pacquiao said in Filipino. “I will be having dinner with him and will be touring the Palace as well.”
Pacquiao also revealed that he is expecting Prince Charles to be present in the said meeting.
The 35-year old Filipino boxing icon will also be flying to the United States prior to his trip to England to promote his 2014 documentary film “Manny.” He will then be back in the States in February to speak in one of the events of the National Prayer Breakfast, which will be held in Washington, DC.
For this second U.S. trip in January, Pacquiao is expecting to meet with President Barack Obama.
“It will be my second time to meet him,” "Pacman" confirmed.
Pacquiao and his wife Jinkee first met with President Obama in February 2011, prior to his bout against Shane Mosley in May of that year.
