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.

Titled "Charles & Reggie: Toe to Toe with Manny Pacquiao" features clips in which Barkley and Miller spend time with Pacquiao and trainer Freddie Roach at the Wild Card Gym in the bright lights of Hollywood, California, with Barkley acting as the Micky to Pac's Rocky.

Miller also joins Pacquiao on his morning run through Griffith Park in Los Angeles.

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

Pacquiao fights Marquez on Saturday night in Las Vegas.
