Filipino fighting congressman Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao is reportedly already had a place for the senatorial slate of current Vice President Jejomar Binay, according to a report from ABS-CBN TV Patrol, a local TV station in Philippines.

Vice President Binay is very vocal in his intention to run for Philippine presidency in 2016 national election. During the interview he said that "matagal na naming pinag-uusapan yan eh" (We've (Pacquiao) been talking about it for a long time).

However, in a separate interview Pacquiao said that he's still "thinking" about it.

If Pacquiao finally decides to run for senator, do you think he has the chance to win in another weight class in the political arena?

Pacquiao is in General Santos preparing for his rematch against Timothy Bradley. And will be going to the US next week to continue another leg of rigorous training at Freddie Roach Wild Card Gym.

Pacquiao lost to Bradley in a highly controversial split decision in June 2012.
