Manny Pacquiao to visit Mall Of The Emirates!
Boxing fans will get a chance to meet Filipino ring icon Manny Pacquiao in Dubai next month at the Mall of the Emirates where he will inaugurate a new GO Sport megastore.
The Filipino sportsman will visit the new Go Sports outlet as part of its launch in the mall on November 5 when he arrives in Dubai for the Philippines Basketball Cup 2016 to be held at Al Wasl Club that weekend.
Boxing legend and 10-time world champion Manny Pacquiao 36, has enjoyed a glittering 20-year career in the ring, with high-profile wins against Ricky Hatton and Oscar De La Hoya, among others.
These victories resulted in him being named “Fighter of the Decade” by the Boxing Writers Association of America, the World Boxing Council and the World Boxing Organisation, in 2011
Pacquiao will be the star attraction at the PBC 2016 where he will lead Mahindra Enforcers as player-coach in the event organised by the Clique Events CO, the Official Overseas Game Organiser of PBA in UAE, in collaboration with the Dubai Sports Council, and dU as the main presenter.
Mahindra Enforcers, Alaska Aces and Barangay Ginebra, which are considered three of the best basketball teams in the Philippine league, will be competing for honours.
The tournament is expected to attract a large number of Filipino basketball lovers and fans of the participating teams, as well as fans 'Pacman' who featured in the 'Fight of the Century' with American Floyd Mayweather Jr.
In recent years Pacquiao has also taken part in basketball, business, acting, music and politics. A two-term senator in his native Philippines, he announced this month that he would again contest a senate seat in elections next year.
