"That's 7 world titles," the Filipino told the show’s host, referring to his 7-division title winnings in boxing.

“So, will there be an MP8 then when you fight on November 13?" asked Kimmel.

“That's another brand," was Pacquiao's reply.

MP products include T-shirts and hooded sweaters. He also has commercial endorsements of pain killers (Alaxan), socks (Darlington), karaoke-microphone (Xtreme Magic Sing), beer (San Miguel Beer), shampoo (head and Shoulders), and gin (Ginebra San Miguel) among others.

The Filipino champion is gunning for an 8th world title against Mexican toughie Antonio Margarito on November 13 (Nov. 14 in Manila). This time, it will be for the World Boxing Council (WBC) super welterweight crown.

Pacquiao, the congressional representative of Sarangani province, also talked about getting a Filipino citizenship for his coach, Freddie Roach.

Roach is credited for Pacquiao’s total development as a boxer, thereby helping the Filipino gain worldwide status as pound-for-pound champion.

“My colleague, he filed a bill adopting Freddie Roach [to] be a Filipino citizen,” said Pacquiao.

“Can I get on into that? I would also like to become a Filipino citizen... Remember, when you become a politician you never lie," joked Kimmel.

“I'm not saying yes, but maybe," replied a grinning Pacquiao.
