MANILA – The city of Manila has designated seven public areas where boxing fans can watch the much-anticipated rematch of Filipino champ Manny Pacquiao against Timothy Bradley on Sunday, April 13 (Saturday, April 12 in the U.S.).
DZMM reported that the San Andres Sports Complex is now testing the satellite and big screens which will be used.
Officer-in-charge Gary Cagampang said the San Andres Sports Complex has a seating capacity of 6,000. But they estimate that about 10,000 to 11,000 people will troop to the complex to watch the bout.
Cagampang said the tickets were coursed through barangay officials, and then distributed to the public. Fans with tickets will use the main entrance of the sports complex. Those who were unable to get a ticket can still watch the fight depending on space or seat availability.
He also expects that Manila Mayor Joseph Estrada will watch the airing of the fight in the complex.
Aside from the San Andres Sports Complex, other areas offering to show for free the Pacquiao-Bradley fight are the following:
- Tondo Sports Complex
- Patricia Sports Complex in District 2
- Delpan Sports Complex in Port Area
- Rasac Sports Complex in Rizal Avenue
- Delpan Sports Complex
- Sarmiento Covered Court in Sta. Mesa
The Pacquiao-Bradley welterweight world title rematch will take place in Las Vegas.
Meanwhile, the General Santos City Gym is already set for Sunday's live public viewing of the Pacquiao-Bradley rematch.
The people in General Santos City are eager to see their hometown hero grace the boxing ring once again.
Pacquiao's children, Jemuel, Michael Princess and Queenie, are also excited to see their dad fight.
