MANILA, Philippines – Manny Pacquiao sounded pleased after hearing reports that the Philippine Azkals wanted to watch his upcoming fight this May 7.

The boxing superstar said it's an honor to have the country's booters watch him, as he takes on "Sugar" Shane Mosley at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Pacquiao is in the US preparing for his match against Mosley. He will be defending his World Boxing Organization welterweight belt from the American.

Pacquiao stressed that, like what the Azkals have been trying to do in their matches, he will again try to make the country proud during his fight abroad.

"Para sa ating bansa ang bawat laban na ito," he said.

A few members of the Azkals, on the other hand, are in Daly City, California, supervising tryouts for other Filipinos interested to join the team.
