MANILA--Manny Pacquiao is making a return to the boxing ring after all.

An announcement on Thursday revealed that the former eight-division world champion is set to face Korean stunt coordinator DK Yoo in an exhibition match.

Pacquiao, during his presidential campaign last summer, had insisted that he has already retired for good from boxing.

However, initial reports said that Pacquiao will battle Yoo, who is said to be knowledgeable in various martial arts including boxing, on Dec. 10 in South Korea.

A contract signing is set to take place on July 20 at the Shangri-La at the Fort in Taguig, where they will discuss how the bout will go to the media.
