Manny Pacquiao may have called it quits but he is set to return to the boxing ring against Korean YouTuber DK Yoo in an exhibition match slated December.

A contract signing is set to take place at the Shangri-La The Fort in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig on July 20 with both fighters present.

Yoo, a martial artist with over 650k subscribers on YouTube, earlier announced more than two weeks ago that he will be fighting the eight-division world boxing champion.

Pacquiao, who retired from boxing after his loss against Yordenis Ugas, was also part of the short clip.

“DK Yoo, see you in the special event this coming December. God bless and be safe. Thank you,” said the 43-year-old Pacquiao, who also shortly ran for presidency after his retirement.

The video also showed the two posing a strike at Pacquiao’s house in General Santos City as well as “signed contracts” for the exhibition fight.

Yoo fought with former UFC fighter Bradley Scott in a boxing match in December last year while Pacquiao ended his professional stint with 62 wins, built on 39 knockouts, and eight losses.
