February 10th, 2011 By Pedro FernandezMANY YEARS SINCE A BOXER HONORED AT WHITE HOUSE
San Francisco, CA- In recent history, boxers like Muhammad Ali, Ray Leonard, and a few select others have been guests of the President of the United States. Sometimes it was a photo op, other times there was actual dialogue between Ali and Gerald Ford. Now on February 15, Manny Pacquiao, the most popular boxer in the universe by far will have a one on one meeting with President Barack Obama at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
THE TWO WILL TALK BOTH BOXING & POLITICS!
From what I’m being told, seeing Pacquiao is a Philippine Congressman this will not be a photo op as the two men will discuss more than Pacquiao’s kicking the snot out of every American and Mexican he’s ever faced! This is yet another positive for boxing emanating from Pacquiao, who fights Shane Mosley on May 7 in Las Vegas, NV.
