Pacquiao is expected to draw more than 50,000 fans Saturday night on the sports ground and if he can convince other people to buy the fight on television he could make $20 million in it. He was supposed to come Thursday at the Cowboy Stadium in order to achieve the expectation; there will be satellite interviews of major networks to be held in the said area.
After minutes of waiting, Pacquiao and his entourage emerged, as stated, heading toward SUV’s that will bring them all to the final media interview before the fight.
