Manny Pacquiao is one of the most popular names in boxing and this is because his name transcends the sport.

If a person has watched television lately, they may have seen a commercial in which a small Filipino boxer tried to sell a new HP tablet.

Some people would have no clue that boxer was Pacquiao, but the association of the face is something that shows they would pay to see what the man is about.

For those that follow world politics, you may know the name of Manny Pacquiao from when he ran in 2007 and again in 2010 (winning in 2010) for a congressional seat in the Philippines.

Then there is the fact that he is in the popular Fight Night video game series. All of these things may put non-boxing fans on alert to a fight that Pacquiao is in.

It would not matter the price for a Pacquiao fight because his name goes beyond the sport.

Those who are followers of the sport are going to watch his fights because he is one of, if not the biggest name in boxing right now.

He has a draw that most do not. He is rated the No. 1 pound-for-pound fighter in the world.

His speed and quick hands make him an exciting boxer to watch. He can dictate the rhythm of the fight.

The most entertaining part of his fighting style is how well he can brawl. Brawling in boxing is not the most technical, but it is one of the most entertaining things that can be seen in a match.

Pacquiao is a draw regardless of money and he will always be worth it because of his entertaining style.
