Liam Neeson Is a Huge Manny Pacquiao Fan


Liam Neeson was left trembling when he met boxer Manny Pacquiao for the first time on Wednesday.

The Taken star and the fighter were both guests on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and Neeson, who once narrated a documentary about the sportsman’s life, jumped at the chance to meet one of his heroes backstage.

He says, “I met Muhammad Ali many, many years ago and I had the exact same feeling – my two knees were going like that (shaking)… I love boxing.”

And now Neeson is determined to get to Pacquiao’s fight with Floyd Mayweather, Jr. in May , adding, “I will do anything to get there. I’m shooting a film with Martin Scorsese in Taiwan and I’m contracted until the end of April, so hopefully he’ll shoot fast.”

You can watch Liam talk about his love of boxing below:
