Pacquiao hits LAX but never leaves his trail behind

LOS ANGELES, California, January 17, 2010 - Philippines' congressional candidate and Pound-for-Pound king Manny Pacquiao arrived at the Tom Bradley Los Angeles International Airport as the Philippine Airlines Flight 105 touched down at 4:27 p.m. on a chilly, rainy and much colder Sunday.

But, as Pacquiao and his entourage came out of the immigration and customs area, the temperature went its way up, warm and fast, as the crowd swelled to a majestic proportion. Hundreds welcomed him along with the media personalities.

Pacquiao prepares to kick off two-city promotional tour for his WBO Welterweight title defense against the "tough panther" of Ghana, Joshua Clottey, on March 13 at the Dallas Cowboy Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

In an exclusive telephone interview, Pacquiao's promoter and Top Rank Godfather Bob Arum said Pacquiao is scheduled to attend the news conference this Tuesday in Dallas and on Wednesday at the Madison Square Garden Theater in New York City.

According to Arum, Pacquiao will leave Los Angeles Monday on a private plane near LAX that will take a brief stop in Las Vegas to pick him up and his stepson Todd DuBoef for the continuation of the full flight to Dallas.

Arlington is said to be rolling the red carpet for Pacquiao when it hosts the kickoff press conference on Tuesday and the entire cheerleading squad will be provided as well, that is said to begin at 1 p.m.

Jerry Jones, the owner of the Dallas Cowboy Stadium, and Arum are joining hands in staging the bout dubbed "The Event' , the first boxing event to be held at the $ 1.2 - billion facility.

After the promotional tour, Pacquiao, along with his entourage, is said to fly back to Los Angeles, to start his training this weekend at the Wild Card Gym in Hollywood, California.

Meanwhile, as Pacquiao hits LAX and prepares to galvanize his boxing fans with his bid to bring pride and joy, his trail rekindles his heart out for the Philippines' 2010 National Elections this May 10. An impressive win over Clottey could mean a "big thing" for his electoral votes. He is vying for the congressional post in the lone district of Sarragani against Roy Chongbian, the younger brother of the incumbent Congressman Erwin Chongbian, whose dynasty has been reigning over 20 years to this date.
