Morales went to the Pambansang Kamao’s mansion to interview him weeks before his upcoming fight with the undefeated Keith “One Time” Thurman on July 20, 2019 at MGM Grand In Las Vegas.

“Great to see my good friend Erik Morales,” said the 40-year-old boxer on his tweet in Twitter with a hashtag #PacquaioMorales4 at the end of the tweet.

It can be seen the happiness of Pacquiao upon seeing his former enemy who turned as his friend visiting him in his home.

More than that, the professional boxer also described Morales as a great warrior when it comes to the boxing ring.

It can also be remembered that Morales defeated eight - division world champion Pacquiao in their first fight way back in early 2000s. 

But during their second and third fight, the boxing senator proved that there was only a one champion when he defeated Morales during their second and third bout.

Are they ready to fight and face each other again for the fourth time to prove who is the greater boxer?
