By Leo Reyes     Jun 4, 2009 in Sports
Manny Pacquiao is flying to New York next Friday to receive an award from the Boxing Writers Association of America where he will receive an award as 'Fighter of the Year'. He will also appear on CBS Morning Show for Time's Top 100 Influential people.
One of the world’s most popular boxers Manny Pacquiao will appear on the CBS morning show in New York next Friday.
It is expected that Pacquiao will be interviewed in the widely watched TV show in relation to his inclusion in the Time’s Top 100 Most Influential People list. The list includes the popular pound-for-pound king. According to Bob Arum, Pacquiao’s promoter, the show is popular and with wide national audience.
Manila Standard Today reports:
In an overseas telephone conversation, Arum also confirmed what he told Standard Today a month ago that TIME magazine will be featuring the Filipino ring icon. “Time has asked for a few hours because they are doing a big story on him [Pacquiao]. He’s going to be quite busy.”
Arum said that Pacquiao, who is scheduled to leave for Los Angeles later this week, is set to arrive Wednesday in New York, where they would discuss the possibilities for an Oct. 17 fight and his likely opponents.
“I have canvassed everybody, I’ve seen what everybody is proposing and I will sit with Manny and discuss it with him. There’s [Miguel] Cotto, there’s [Shane] Mosley and [Edwin] Valero, but if he wants to wait for [Floyd] Mayweather Jr., it’s up to him.”, Arum added.
While in New York, Pacquiao is expected to attend the awarding ceremonies of the Boxing Writers Association of America which is set for June 12 at the Capitale on Bowery, New York. Pacquiao won this year’s award as “Fighter of the year” for the second time. He received the same award in 2006.
Pacquiao is likewise expected to watch the Cotto-Cottley fight scheduled for June 17 at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
