Pacquiao vs. Bradley II: Manny Pacquiao will be on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" April 2

Jeoffrey Maitem

Manny Pacquiao will make his near-annual appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" in a few days.

For whatever reason, Manny Pacquiao has become something of a staple on "Jimmy Kimmel Live". For the eighth time in his career, all of them since November 2009, Pacquiao will be a guest for the show again on April 2, ten days before his PPV bout with Timothy Bradley. According to a press release, he will be alongside former United States president Bill Clinton. Despite this already being his eighth appearance, Pacquiao hasn't been on the show since November 2012 when he was sandwiched between his only two losses of the past eight years.

For those unfamiliar with the program, Kimmel is a comedian and Pacquiao's appearances are, of course, played for laughs. For example, one time he sang John Lennon's "Imagine" with Will Ferrell.

After losing to Bradley in 2012, Kimmel made note of Pacquiao's new commitment to quit drinking, womanizing, and gambling in order to focus on his family and his career (both boxing and politics).

"The last time you were here, you announced that you had quit drinking and quit gambling and that you had quit cock fighting, and then, for the first time in seven years, you did not win," Kimmel said to Pacquiao on the Filipino star's last time on the show. "You lost the fight, I don't think you lost the fight but, technically, they said you lost the fight. Will you go back to drinking, gambling, and cock fighting?"

Jimmy Kimmel Live is on ABC and airs at 11:35 ET.
