He requested to receive/receiving the present his father promised him as soon as possible.
Should it be 'receive' or 'receiving'?
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"
Asked is better than requested in my opinion. One uses the infinitive of the verb, i.e. "to receive". "To receiving" is not English.
