He requested to receive/receiving the present his father promised him as soon as possible.

Should it be 'receive' or 'receiving'?

Many thanks.

@tanguatlay,
to receive

Someone else may be able to explain the rule


Off the top of my head I can't think of any instance where you would use "to (verb)ing"

@tanguatlay,
Asked is better than requested in my opinion. One uses the infinitive of the verb, i.e. "to receive". "To receiving" is not English.
