Philippine Congressman Manny (Pac Man) Pacquaio
The boxing world waits in anticipation of his signing a contract to fight against Mayweather, in what has been seen as the fight of the generation, between the world's two leading prize fighters. It is thought the super-fight could gross over $200 million, the most lucrative fight of all time.
The 31-year-old fighter says he is committed to improving infrastructure, medical services and security during his three-year term in parliament. On the eve of the ceremony, Pacquiao defected to the Liberal Party of incoming President Benigno Aquino. (WSJ, 11/19/2010, The Telegraph, 6/28/2010)
