Happy Cinco De Mayo, everyone.
The big fight weekend is almost here, so that means your friend KING J must hop on that trusty 15 freeway northbound once again and head to the infamous Sin City, Las Vegas, where the world will be tuning in Saturday night on Showtime pay-per-view to watch Manny Pacquiao vs. Shane Mosley.
On this pay-per-view card, we have the return of Kelly Pavlik taking on undefeated Alfonso Lopez and the always-exciting Mexican warrior Jorge Arce taking on the undefeated son of a Puerto Rican legend, Wilfredo Vazquez Jr., who is looking to make a name for himself defending his WBO super bantamweight title.
With it being Cinco De Mayo weekend and with the biggest fight of the year at the MGM Grand, that can only mean Las Vegas will be on fire.
We will definitely have the biggest stars of Hollywood flying in and sitting ringside as they always do for the pound-for-pound champion Pacquiao.
KING J has already received confirmation that 12 of his friends from the Bay Area are flying down along with 25 from San Diego and 30 from Chicago, which surprisingly will be comprised of ladies as well. We will be 67 heads deep this weekend. Really, take a second to visualize just how insane that is. This really does show the drawing power of the sport's No. 1 fighter, Manny Pacquiao.
So definitely check back and follow my Twitter for all these Las Vegas updates.
We will be at the weigh-in Friday at 3PM Pacific Time, at the fight and, of course, post-fight parties galore.
As soon as I get to Las Vegas tonight, I will post the current odds on the fight as listed inside my favorite lucky sportsbook casino on the strip, which I have allegedly won thousands of dollars from.
I'll also be contacting members of Manny Pacquiao's MC Hammer-like entourage to get some inside updates as well for all you fight fans.
So definitely check back and follow me on Twitter for all this madness going on this weekend from Las Vegas.
