VIDEO: Manny Pacquiao Talks Scottish With Brilliant Impression of Everton’s Steven Naismith

Manny Pacquiao seems to have the Scottish accent down – as he did a bizarre impression of Everton’s Steven Naismith on American TV.

The boxing great – who is still waiting on his multi-million pound fight with Floyd Mayweather to be finalised – joined Michael Davies and Roger Bennett on NBC Sport’s Men In Blazers this week.

He spoke about that fight, his boxing career and football while appearing on the show.

And we have to congratulate him on nailing the Scottish accent as he spoke about international midfielder Naismith with the show hosts.

Pacquiao said:

I’m from Scotland. I’m born and raised from Scotland.

And I’m fighting for freedom against the Englishmen.

Who else just became a Pacquiao fan? As a website born and raised in Scotland too, it’s good to see one a sporting great tip his hat to the great nation.

You can watch the Men In Blazers interview with Pacquiao on NBC Sports later today.
