All set for Pacquiao grand presscon

SHAPELY AND PRETTY CHEERLEADERS, a giant high-definition television screen, and a special stage for VIP guests, among them former football greats and world boxing champions.

These are the highlights of the grand press conference awaiting Filipino ring superstar Manny Pacquiao in Arlington, Texas, on Tuesday.

Mobbed by fans and the media after his arrival in Los Angeles Sunday night, Pacquiao will be flown by private jet to Las Vegas, where he will be joined by promoter Bob Arum, before proceeding to the $1.2-billion Cowboys Stadium for the formal announcement of his duel with Ghanaian Joshua Clottey on March 13.

According to Matt Stolow of Examiner.com Sunday, a 60-foot stage is being erected for invited guests to the press conference for “The Event” at the midfield of the cavernous dome.

Apart from Pacquiao, who will be staking his WBO welterweight crown, Clottey, Arum and Cowboys’ billionaire owner Jerry Jones, the guests list include former Cowboys greats Tony Dorsett, Ed Jones, Drew Pearson, Tony Hill and Preston Pearson.
