Manny Pacquiao Fights Charles Barkley? Two Trains Ahead of Matchup with Marquez (VIDEO)

By Staff Reporter - Posted: 12/08/12 11:08AM EST

Everyone's looking forward to Manny Pacquiao's fourth fight against Juan Manuel Marquez, and Pacquiao has had special training: with Charles Barkley.

Yes, the Chuckster isn't a boxer (although he throws a mean punch here agianst Shaquille O'Neal), but he was one of the greatest athletes ever and a celebrity.

Barkley and fellow NBA hall of famer Reggie Miller visited the boxing superstar in camp before his matchup with Marquez, and the two apparently talked boxing, strategry, and did a bit of impromptu sparring.

"As a boxing fan, it was one of the coolest things I've ever done," Chuck said.
