France, Japan, UK, Wall Street: All focus on Manny Pacquiao

Pacquiao vs Cotto Online Live Streaming
NY Boxing Examiner Michael Marley

LAS VEGAS--Piping Hot from Media Central, MGM Grand Hotel for COTTO VS. PACQUIAO:

1. You’ve got a Pinoy against a Puerto Rican with no American in the main event. Yet Thursday’s Wall Street Journal carries a preflight piece by a college professor, Gordon Marino. Bob Arum really likes that. TV crews from Japan and the United Kingdom are here. The boxing scribe for the Paris-based all sports daily, L’Equipe is in the house. That’s called Pacquiao Power!

2. There have been rumblings of a Mike Tyson comeback but who knew it would be against a photographer at the airport in Los Angeles? But let's withhold judgment here and, since the shutterbug sounds like a paparazzi, see what develops. And no cracks about Iron Mike being "overexposed" lately, either.

"There's a lot of different versions to the story," Los Angeles Airport Police Sergeant Jim Holcomb said. "That's all going to come out later. But in this particular case, both individuals are going to be pressing charges for battery." (Source: LA Times)

3. Best Quote of the Week comes from Murray Wilson, New York and Vegas restaurateur who manages undefeated Jewish hopeful and rabbinical student Yuri Foreman. Foreman, who has been criticized for his slick boxing style by some, faces tough Puerto Rican vet Daniel Santos on the undercard here. The WBA junior middleweight title held by KO artist Santos, a Don King fighter, is at stake. Bob Arum was hopeful that Foreman’s unique story--he’s lived in Belarus, Israel and now in Brooklyn and is married to a lovely model--would engender some extra publicity and it has. The Jerusalem Post and other Jewish oriented publications have written about unbeaten Foreman and Wednesday’s New York Times had a solid piece by my pal and New York magazine scribe Geoffrey Gray. Oh, the Wilson quote? Asked why he and fellow investors have bankrolled Foreman, the brassy Wilson said, “What can I say? I’m a loudmouth Jew and he gives me a lot of pride.” I am tipping Foreman to outpoint the aging Santos in the fight of the future rabbi’s life…

3.. Puerto Rican boxing pride, which is justifiably considerable, will take a double hit if BOTH Cotto and Santos lose. Juan Ma Lopez will have to pick up the Boricua pieces…

4.. Friend and colleague Jose Martino, guru behind nifty site Boxemundial.com, has thought long and hard and has firmly resolved that his fellow Boricua, Cotto, will walk Pacman down and stop him in the later rounds. I can disagree with Martino without getting into a fight as I am sticking to Megamanny on points after 12 hotly contested rounds. Let Miguel and Manny do all the fighting from here on out…

5.. Your Pinoy friendly “White Gorilla” was heard on the airwaves all over Cebu in the Philippines Tuesday courtesy of Dexter D. Ligan and the crew on Aksyon Radio 648 KBZ in that city. Pressed for my fight pick, I resorted to my old line about “may the best Man-ny win.”…

5. Seen cruising in the glitzy corridors of the MGM Grand was former welterweight ruler Super Zab Judah whose father, Yoel, came to the preflight presser. “We want the winner,” Papa Judah said. “I doubt Cotto would look for a second fight since he owns a victory over Zabby Dabby so the Broolynites better hope for a Pacman victory…

6. They're really packing them in at Mandalay Bay, Pacquiao's hotel choice. Seven of his cronies from the extended entourage are sharing one room but make it eight is enough since "Pacman" the Jack Russell terrier also beds down in that room. Wonder what the maid thinks?
