KIA Motors players won't be at ringside to support their playing coach when he fights the biggest match of his life on Sunday.

But they'll have the next best thing.

A team insider bared that KIA players and coaches will gather in Pacquiao's home in Forbes Park in Makati on Sunday to cheer for the boxing hero in his match against Floyd Mayweather Jr. in Las Vegas.

Pacquiao took a break from his duties as playing coach of the Carnival to train for his much-awaited fight against Mayweather while the team prepares for its stint in the PBA Governors Cup.

PJ Ramos, KIA’s import during the Commissioner’s Cup, was supposed to accompany Pacquiao in Las Vegas but will instead return to Puerto Rico due to his contractual obligations with his mother team.
