MANILA, Philippines -- Boxing icon Manny Pacquiao may join as celebrity participant in the highlight event – Legends Game -- in the All-Star Friday of the PBA All-Star Week in Digos, Davao del Sur slated May 1-6.

Pacquiao, a basketball follower who himself plays the game, volunteered his participation through Davao del Sur Gov. Douglas Cagas.

“Manny asked Gov. Cagas if he can play. We said he’s very much welcome. We can include him in the Legends Game. We’re still awaiting the confirmation,” PBA media bureau chief Willie Marcial told The STAR.

If ever, the boxing star joins former PBA stars Benjie Paras, Jerry Codinera, Noli Locsin, Vince Hizon, Bong Hawkins and Bong Ravena in the Legends Game Friday.

“We can include him in Team Stalwarts,” said Marcial.

Making up Team Stalwarts are Paras, Ravena, Dickie Bachmann, Topex Robinson, Ronald Tubid, Chris Tiu, JC Intal, Willie Miller, Mark Macapagal and Jervy Cruz.

Team Stalwarts will be up against Team Greats composed of Hawkins, Codinera, Hizon, Locsin, Johnedel Cardel, Paul Lee, Mark Barroca, Mike Cortez, Cliff Hodge, PJ Simon and Joe Devance.

During break in boxing, Pacquiao regularly plays basketball. He has a basketball team in MP GenSan.
