Pacquiao meets Ronaldo as boxing, sports stars descend on Saudi for Fury-Ngannou bout

MANILA, Philippines – Manny Pacquiao and Cristiano Ronaldo were all smiles when they met each other in Saudi Arabia.

The two legends of their respective ports met in the Middle Eastern country in time for the “Battle of the Baddest” boxing match between mixed martial arts star Francis Ngannou and boxing heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.

A video posted by Boxing on TNT on X (formerly Twitter) showed the interaction between the two.

“Hey, Pacquiao!” Ronaldo said, as he happily called the Filipino eight-division world champion.

“HEY PACQUIAO!” ????@Cristiano absolutely LOVED meeting the legend @MannyPacquiao ????#BattleOfTheBaddest #FuryNgannou

The two exchanged pleasantries as they took a photo together.

Pacquiao also met with former rival Ricky Hatton in Saudi.

“He’s only offered me out at darts… What a gent,” Hatton’s post on X read.

The Filipino knocked the lights out of the British boxer back in 2009.
