Manny Pacquiao is fighting David Diaz tonight… and we're all rooting for PacMan (I made that up… just now). Why are we all Pacquiao fans? Because he's a big Celtics fan… and all our boys will be there ringside.
If plans push through, the newly crowned NBA champions from Boston, led by the Big Three (Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen) will be at ringside to root for the Filipino challenger.
According to Pacquiao’s pointman in Los Angeles, Winchell Campos, 16 tickets have already been reserved for members of the Boston Celtics, most of whom are already in town as of Friday.
"They all wanted to see Pacquiao fight, knowing that Pacquiao is a big fan of the team," said Campos who said he personally talked to Garnett over the phone on the eve of the fight.
The guys are already in Vegas to continue their wild celebration of Banner 17. Let's hope Manny gets the job done with the guys there to cheer him on. And let's hope all our guys stay out of trouble out there in Vegas. We (read: Chuck) knows all too well how easy it is to get into trouble in Vegas.
