Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Manny Pacquiao made his fourth appearance last night on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live to talk about his May 7 fight with "Sugar" Shane Mosley, Don Rickles, his single "Sometimes When We Touch" with Dan Hill, and other things. Pacquiao and Kimmel had their usual good time, including Kimmel calling himself "a big fat rabbit's foot" in regard to Manny being 3-0 after appearing on the show.

Unfortunately, Manny did not sing, which seems weird to me since, you know, this was the one time he actually had a song to promote. But maybe that's part of the marketing strategy. The dorks who watch Jimmy Kimmel Live -- no offense to any of those dorks -- probably feel disappointed that he didn't entertain them with another one of his performances, so maybe they'll be like, "Damn, I gotta hear Manny sing. I just gotta!" and they'll rush out and buy the CD/DVD single of "Sometimes When We Touch." This is not a gamble I would take, but then actually selling a CD single is not a business move I would have made either, so what do I know? Though I guess there are probably enough loony boxing collectors to sell a few, plus the Filipino population in the States, so who knows? Maybe it's another side fortune for Manny.

If it is successful, I would like his next single to be "I Can't Drive 55" with Sammy Hagar. He probably doesn't like that song, and I don't really like it either, but something about Manny singing it strikes me as funny. Maybe it's more that I can't imagine him bothering to drive his own car.

Anyway, video of Pacquiao on Kimmel after the jump.
