Arnel Pineda to sing the Philippine anthem in Pacquiao-Clottey fight

The Filipino front man of American rock band "Journey," Arnel Pineda, will sing the Philippine national anthem in Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao’s upcoming boxing bout with Ghanaian Joshua "The Grand Master" Clottey on March 13 (March 14 in Manila) at the Cowboys Stadium in Dallas, Texas.

Pineda confirmed that he was invited by Pacquiao himself to sing "Lupang Hinirang" in this much-awaited fight.

The rock star said that he was also invited to sing in Pacquaio’s previous fights but he was not able to confirm because of his hectic schedule as Journey's vocalist.

Pineda, who also performed during the Pinoy boxer's birthday party in General Santos City last December, is set to fly back to US this coming April to record the latest album of Journey.
