Multi-weight world boxing champion Manny Pacquiao delighted the crowd in his home country as the popular fighter made his pro basketball debut over the weekend.

The 35 year-old, who is scheduled to fight light-welterweight belt holder Chris Algieri on November 22 in Macau, China, made two assists in total as he wowed fans on the way to an 80-66 victory.

A roar went up each time the KIA Sorento player-coach touched the ball and it is safe to say the welterweight world title holder did not look out of place on court.

Watch the video below of Pacquiao’s performance as a whole.
