Professional boxer and the People’s Champion Manny “PacMan” Pacquiao might be coming to Moonton’s mobile MOBA game, Mobile Legends: Bang Bang.
Mobile Legends dropped a short video teaser showing different boxing elements like a pair of red gloves with the new MLBB logo on its wrist area, some hand wraps, a punching bag, and even a close-up shot of a boxing ring.
Familiar tournament audio then starts playing in the middle of the video, referring to the “reigning and defending WBO welterweight champion of the world, the fighting pride of the Philippines.” A big punch interrupts the announcer before he could even declare the name of the fighter.
Many boxing fans would immediately recognize the voice as Michael Buffer, the popular American ring announcer. Here is a clip of Buffer introducing Pacquiao during one of his tournaments.
Moonton followed this video teaser with a photo showing a silhouette of a boxer and the words “A Legend is coming. Are you ready?”
Mobile Legends refers to this persona as the “Big M,” a new ambassador for the game as the caption of the post states. If this is indeed Pacquiao, what role will he play in Mobile Legends? Will we have a new Mobile Legends Manny Pacquiao skin as a tribute, or will he become the game’s newest hero?
Whether or not this is really Manny Pacquiao himself, MLBB players will have to tune in on November 21 at 7:00 p.m. for the game’s live conference as they unveil this “legend” for Mobile Legends.
