Manny Pacquiao's next fight in Las Vegas will feature a different kind of undercard.

On April 9, there will only be Hispanic boxers in the fights before Pacquiao against Timothy Bradley, which is set to be the last before Pacquiao retires. Pacquiao lost to Floyd Mayweather last May.

Pacquiao's promoter Bob Arum says he wants to make a statement against presidential candidate Donald Trump. He's even calling it the "Donald Trump undercard."

Arum told the Associated Press he is no fan of the Republican presidential contender's calls for a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border and the deportation of an estimated 11 million people living in the country illegally.
