Manny Pacquiao: Is there another fighter that can bring in so many new fans to boxing
Pacquiao brings boxing to the masses. In an age where people say boxing is dying and PPV limits the access to the big fights to the hardcore fans, Pacquiao is the only fighter that can broaden boxing's horizons and bring in so many new fans.
He is respected, by boxing greats, world class sports stars, other combat sport athletes, as well as celebrities, actors, singer and entertainers.
And they all love to see him fight.
Nazim Richardson once said, "If you are not a fan of Pacquiao, you are not a fan of boxing"
It will be a sad day in boxing when he finally hangs them up.
Who will take his place can their be another boxer out there that can take his place and have such a wide fanbase, and have the ability to bring new fans into boxing?
I can't think of anyone at the moment?
He is up there with Ali with his cross appeal status.
