WATCH: Drake impersonates Manny Pacquiao in 'Let it Go' cover
MANILA, Philippines – Canadian rapper Drake had a bit of fun as the host of Wednesday's ESPY Awards, impersonating eight-division boxing champion Manny Pacquiao in a skit that saw the "Started from the Bottom" singer cover Frozen's "Let It Go" in a Filipino accent.
Pacquiao, who faces New Yorker Chris Algieri on November 23 in Macau, is noted for his love of singing and karaoke, has released two full length albums and covered "Sometimes When We Touch" alongside original singer Dan Hill.
In addition to adapting an accent, Drake also wore a wig similar to Pacquiao's trademark moptop hairdo and goatee like the Pacman's.
When asked "Are you worried about Mayweather?," Drake as Pacquiao replied: "To me it's warmer in July so I'm not really worried about the May weather, you know?"
Pacquiao wasn't in attendance at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles to share in the laughter, but arch rival Floyd Mayweather Jr. was. Mayweather, who will face Marcos Maidana next in a rematch of their close fight earlier this year, beat out Pacquiao and super middleweight boxing champion Andre Ward, plus mixed martial artists Ronda Rousey and Jon "Bones" Jones for the ESPY Award for Best Fighter.
It was Mayweather's sixth time to win the award, which Pacquiao won in 2009 and 2011. – Rappler.com
