TMZ also asked Manny if he sees himself buying or becoming a part-owner of an NBA team someday when he retires from boxing. He says he is not closing any doors on that. He also loves to play Basketball whenever he can.

"Actually, I own a league in the Philippines, which is so popular right now in the Philippines, the MPBL, you can Google it, you can search it on the internet," Pacquiao said.

Pacquiao launched Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League or MPBL in 2017. MPBL is a semi-professional basketball league in the Philippines, with 31 teams from different regions in the country.
