The Philippines has had the privilege of having two renowned world champions in their own respective sports—Manny Pacquiao in boxing and Hidilyn Diaz in weightlifting.

But if the two decided to switch sports, who would likely have an easier time?

In an event hosted by a medicine brand on Wednesday, Pacquiao and Diaz tried to answer that question as they were invited to talk about their respective sports.

At one point, the eight-division world champion Pacman was taught by Diaz herself on the proper form and stance in lifting a barbell.

The video is gold. It's either lifting weights like an Olympic champion proved to be a challenge for Pacman, or it's all part of his showmanship. Manny is not new to the spotlight, you know. 

Pacquiao though would have his turn teaching Diaz on how to box.

So, which sport is harder? We’ll leave that for the public to decide.
