Filipino superstar boxer Manny Pacquiao is training for his April 12 bout against the champion and the person who defeated him just a little over a year ago Timothy Bradley. Well the pacman got a special visitor thursday as R&B singer Ashanti brought her mother to the Wild Card Gym to meet Manny Pacquiao. Once Pacquiao knew she was coming he changed his attire and wore his expensive 'Bling Bling' watch, he was like a kid in a candy store as he had lunch with the popular singer and her mother.
What was even more shocking is that Manny even knew Ashanti songs, he even tried to sing one to prove it, she laughed and said I don't thing that one is mine, but I might have sung it before. Which is fitting since she became famous for taking classic hip hip songs and making R&B remakes out of them. Nevertheless, she was brought in to sing the National Anthem we thought but she seems to be spending a lot of time with Manny Pacquiao, so if he is to lose to Timothy Bradley, here is your excuse.
Maybe Ashanti is lending her support while Manny's wife Jinky is home and pregnant and can't travel. I'm sure that's the case. Just having fun, but it's wonderful to see Ashanti again, she has always been respectful and true. She has never forgotten who she is, and will never conform to the trashy times of today's ridiculous R&B singers.
