Manny Pacquiao vs Juan Manuel Marquez III Manila Press Tour: 3 Things We Can Expect

The most anticipated trilogy in boxing between two heated rivals pound for pound and boxer of the decade Manny Pacquiao vs Juan Manuel Marquez III will kick off press tour in Manila.The press tour that will end in Mexico city will start the first leg in Mall of Asia in Manila.

Here are the 3 things we shall expect during the press tour of Manny Pacquiao vs Juan Manuel Marquez III in Manila.

Number 1. SM Mall of Asia (MOA) the largest mall developer and owner in the Philippines.  The 3rd largest shopping mall in Asia. The 4th (Ref. Forbes' World's 10 Largest Shopping Malls) largest shopping mall in the world. It has a land area of 42 hectares and has a gross floor area of an approximate 390,193 m² (4.2 million square feet) and 407,101 m² of total area. 

The mall is located in Bay City, Pasay City, will expect more than 100,000 people including the international media that will cover the event.

Number 2. Manny Pacquiao, also a singer when outside of the squared circle is expected to render a song along with Dan Hill.

The Pacman has hit a single of Hill’s original “Sometimes When We Touch” that has climbed to No. 7 in the Billboard Music Chart. The song was originally sung by Hill in 1977 and after only a year rose to no. 3 on the U.S. Billboard Top 100. 

The performance of the duo has not been announced officially yet as we speak. But expected to be announced soon.

Number 3. Though we can say that it is horribly unusual for the streets of Manila if you will say that there is no traffic jam at all. What we expect is a huge volume and build up of traffic jam that is expected to start from North Edsa all the way to the venue. We advised motorized to map out their alternate routes and to avoid EDSA in general. 

Manila earlier prohibits the use of police siren (wangwang) to any VIP. That includes the President itself that impose these prohibition.

Marquez is also expected to match the hype in Mexico City where the press tour will end.

Manny Pacquiao vs Juan Manuel Marquez is promoted by Bob Arum's Top Rank, MP Promotions and Romanza Promotions. The bout is scheduled on November in Las Vegas.
