Manny Pacquiao Talks Rick Ross; Trains To Snoop Dogg

World champion boxer Manny Pacquiao recently revealed his passion for Hip-Hop music, which he is using to prepare for his highly anticipated match against "Sugar" Shane Mosley on Saturday (May 7th).

As previously reported, Pacquiao will be walking into the ring, accompanied by Florida rap star, Rick Ross.

During an interview with Hard Knock TV at the Nike Vault Presents Pacquiao For The People event, the world famous boxer discussed meeting Rick Ross, listening to Snoop Dogg as he trains and his potential bid President of The Philippines.

"We met in my apartment, he's cool, and he's friendly," Manny Pacquiao told Hard Knock TV in a new interview.

Like Rick Ross, Manny Pacquiao is also enjoying recording success with the release of his new single "Sometimes When We Touch" featuring Dan Hill.

While the track is a remake of the Soft Rock classic made famous by Dan Hill, Manny admitted he trains to a harder style of music.

"It's a mix, [between] ballads and Hip-Hop, like Snoop Dogg," Manny Pacquiao revealed.

Manny also remained mum on growing speculation that he may run for the President of the Philippines.

"I'm not thinking about that right now," Pacquiao said. "I'm thinking to my fight on Saturday."

Over 17,000 fans will watch Pacquiao and Mosley square off in Las Vegas at the MGM, for the WBO welterweight championship.
