- Another cultural issue is that Pacquiao's not as catchy a name. Simple, but it makes a huge difference.
- British news only really reports boxing where it concerns British boxers, and in that regard Mayweather wins again, because his fight with Hatton was better known and more widely publicized. This is the same reason Chisora is probably bigger than Pacquiao at the moment for his brawl.
I honestly couldn't say how well known Pacquiao is. No one except the very occasional person at my university seems to know of him, but my university is virtually totally white middle-class, with a strong upper-middle contingent ... people know more jockeys than they know boxers.
your are absolutely right.maybe that's why when you google floyd you get 16.900.000 results and when you google manny you get 347.000.000,because people don't know manny
...and who the fuck cares what you fagget friends at your university know..they watch horse racing after all,it can't get more gay than that
