Boxers Manny Pacquiao and Brandon Rios appeared together at the Great Wall of China, ahead of their non-title welterweight fight in Macao on November the 24th.

The two fighters are at the start of a massive global promotional tour, with stops in Beijing, as you see, and will move on to Shanghai, Singapore, and the U.S. Many thought the "Paqman" would hang up his gloves after defeat to Juan Manuel Marquez in Las Vegas in December.

At 34-years-old, the Filipino can’t have long left in the game, but will take on the 27-year-old in four month’s time. Pacquiao has won world titles in eight different weight classes throughout his illustrious career, but the American is likely to push him. Rios has only lost once in a 33-fight career. The pair head to Shanghai for more promotion on Tuesday.

Manny Pacquiao, Eight-Division World Champion, said, "Feel good. Good exercise. Very good exercise. Not hard, and not easy."

Brandon Rios, Former World Lightweight Champion, said, "It’s pretty pretty crazy, you know, you get to see a different part of the world. Now I can say I walked the Great Wall of China now, so I’m very happy because of that."
