Eight division world champion Manny Pacquiao has exhibited "good sportsmanship" when he expressed his reaction to Drake's spoof during the ESPY Awards as he always does in all his boxing matches, regardless if he wins or loses.

In an interview with local news anchor, Pacquiao said that he just laughed Drake's impersonation of him. He said that he watched the show and thought it was amusing. The host of the show asked if he ever felt dishonoured by such spoof and to which he answered, "Not really."
The Filipino boxer even challenged Drake and showed the Grammy Award-winning Canadian singer-rapper the proper way of singing "Let It Go." Watch the video below and skip to 5:20.

In case you missed it, Drake made an impersonation of Pacquiao during the ESPY Awards held at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles, California on July 16. Drake tried his hand at imitating Pacquiao in a sketch comedy for the awards show. He could almost pass as the Filipino boxer because he sported the same beard, moustache, and Oriental accent as Pacquiao's.
In addition to the hilarious clip of Drake talking and singing in Pacquiao's accent, the spoof also showed a clip where he was asked if he was scared of Mayweather. The undefeated boxer was also shown after the spoof with a wide green on his face.

Meanwhile, Pacquiao is set to fight Chris Algieri in November. Some critics accuse Pacquiao of being a "cherry picker" for choosing Algieri as his next opponent. However, Algieri might just have the tools to beat Pacquiao, according to reports. Algieri may not necessarily have the greatest boxing skills but he has the speed that might just surprise the eight division world champion.
