Manny Pacquiao snaps selfie at Burj Khalifa
Boxing superstar Manny Paquiao is currently in Dubai as the player coach for his basketball team Mahindra Enforcers. It seems that the Filipino sportsman is taking the time to visit the city’s tourist haunts while on his visit, sharing a snap from ‘At The Top’ – the observation deck at the Burj Khalifa.
Paquiao posted the selfie of him and his wife from the 125th floor, along with the caption, "Enjoying Dubai with my wife. Burj Khalifa At the Top." This is his first visit to the UAE and, along with his wife and five kids, he’s clearly keen to tick off a few landmarks.
The boxer has also spent some time meeting fans, with a public appearance at Du on the ground floor of The Dubai Mall on Wednesday at 4pm.

Along with his boxing a political endeavours, the 36-year-old is also a keen basketball player. And it appears that he’s using this Dubai trip to kill two birds with one stone. As well as a GO Sport appearance he’ll be the player-coach for his team, Mahindra Enforcers, during their Dubai match on November 6.
The team are set to play Alaska Aces on Friday November 6 for the PBA Philippines Basketball Cup at Al Wasl Club. There are three other annual competitions held by PBA, however this cup is seen as one of the most important, as teams aren’t allowed to hire foreign players.
