New and rare, luxury chess set for Pacquiao

Pacquaio's passion for chess is well known. Now a chess set fit for the kings will finally come handy with the pound for pound king as reported by Abac Cordero from

Nazario pulled off a big surprise when he gifted Pacquiao with a rare 1856 chess set, made in Russia, which he bought in an antique store in Orlando for $1,050. Pacquiao, a chess buff, said he’d have a special chess board of narra wood with ivory trimmings made.

“Hindi ka na mananalo sa akin (This time you can’t beat me),” Pacquiao told Nazario who, this early, had announced that next year’s In This Corner party will be held at The Manila Hotel.

Your truly is searching the web to see how the chess set looks like but unfortunately, I can't find any. That maybe a very rare one indeed.
