The exhibition match titled "Pacman vs. DK" was held on December 11, 2022, featuring former eight-division world champion Manny Pacquiao against martial artist DK Yoo. The match was organized as an exhibition event. It consisted of six rounds, each lasting two minutes, and had no agreed-upon weight limit for the fighters. The proceeds of the match were designated for charity, supporting families affected by the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine and homeless individuals in the Philippines. Held at the Korea International Exhibition Center in South Korea, Pacquiao won the bout via a unanimous decision. It's noteworthy that the victory does not impact Pacquiao's professional boxing record. DK Yoo, a South Korean mixed-martial artist and self-defense instructor known for his YouTube training videos, has expertise in Kung-Fu, Wushu, and Judo. He started his own martial arts school and developed the Warfare Combat System, which focuses on unlimited and free movement in combat.

Emmanuel Dapidran Pacquiao CLH, better known as "PacMan," is a Filipino politician and retired professional boxer born on December 17, 1978. He is widely considered one of the greatest professional boxers of all time and has had a successful career both in the boxing ring and in politics.

Throughout his boxing career, Pacquiao achieved numerous milestones, including being the only eight-division world champion in the history of the sport and winning twelve major world titles. He was the first boxer to win the lineal championship in five different weight classes, and the first to win major world titles in four of the eight "glamour divisions." In 2019, he became the oldest welterweight world champion in history at the age of 40, and the first boxer to become a recognized four-time welterweight champion. His fights have generated billions of dollars in revenue, and he was once ranked as the second-highest-paid athlete in the world by Forbes.

In addition to his boxing career, Pacquiao entered politics in 2010 when he was elected as the representative of Sarangani. He later served as a senator in the Philippines from 2016 to 2022. He also became the leader of the PDP-Laban party in 2020. In 2021, he declared his candidacy for the President of the Philippines in the 2022 presidential election but ultimately lost to Bongbong Marcos.

Outside of boxing and politics, Pacquiao has been involved in other endeavors, such as coaching and playing for the Philippine Basketball Association team, founding a semi-professional basketball league, starring in films, hosting television shows, and releasing music albums and songs. He is also an Evangelical Christian preacher, philanthropist, and entrepreneur.

The interview is with DK Yoo, who has experience in various types of martial arts. He was inspired by a variety of people, including General Yu Dayou, and aims to incorporate principles from all movements into his own. He hopes that his martial arts philosophy, WCS, can help people achieve freedom of movement and mind. He does not believe WCS is superior to other philosophies, but rather sees it as a tool to help people. He is constantly inspired by many people and believes that truth and inspiration can be found everywhere in the world.
