The segment featured cameos by Marquez, Top Rank CEO Bob Arum, trainer Freddie Roach, ESPN’s Bernardo Osuna and even Pacquiao’s advisor, Michael Koncz, during a parody of HBO’s 24/7 series, which had Pacquiao being avoided for fights three times by Kimmel’s overweight sidekick, Guillermo Rodriguez.
