SAN DIEGO, Calif. – Manny Pacquiao’s next big test inside the ring will be against Oscar De La Hoya, but before he takes on boxing’s most popular figure, the four-division champion faces the challenge of co-promoting his first boxing show with Sycuan Ringside Promotions on Thursday, Sept. 25, 2008 at Sycuan Resort and Casino in San Diego, Calif.
“I love the San Diego area,” said Pacquiao, who’s promotional company is titled Manny Pacquiao Promotions (MPP). “Before I won my title against David Diaz, I spent several hours touring San Diego after one of our press conferences. I can honestly say it is the most beautiful city in America.”
“Sycuan Ringside Promotions is extremely excited to be partnering with Manny in his first boxing promotion,” said Scott Woodworth, vice president of Sycuan Ringside Promotions. “You can only do this once and we’re happy to be a part of it. We’ve lined up an exciting card with an exciting twist.”
