Actor Mark Wahlberg is so confident with his boxing skills after portraying boxing legend MICKEY WARD in new film THE FIGHTER, he is convinced he could knock out world champion Manny Pacquiao.
The Departed star bulked up before stepping into the ring to play the iconic Boston, Massachusetts sportsman, and he insists his boxing training has come in useful in recent weeks - he "clocked" a man during a night out at a Los Angeles club.
And Wahlberg is adamant he'd put up a good fight if he was ever challenged by Pacquiao.
He says, "If I can choke him and wrestle him then that's it... but I don't want to be, you know, getting picked apart by him... that's not a good call."
