Pacquiao (62-8-2, 39 KOs) memorably retired last year after he lost a unanimous decision to WBA welterweight champion Yordenis Ugas.
His opponent is 42-year-old DK Yoo, a renowned self-defense instructor and martial arts practitioner who is popular for his YouTube videos.
The 5-foot-10 native of South Korea claims to know 15 different disciplines, including Jeet Kune Do, Systema, Tai Chi, and Wing chun.
He likewise developed the “Warfare Combat System” which he teaches to his students. DK Yoo fought MMA fighter Bradley Scott before.
In a press conference earlier this year, Pacquiao stated that his earnings from this fight will be donated for the underprivileged.
