Pacquiao to leave for UK Friday
Top Rank chief Bob Arum said he had just gotten off the phone with Koncz who informed him that Pacquiao was going to the British embassy Wednesday to get his visa.
The Filipino boxer is scheduled to leave for London at 6 a.m. on Friday.
The promotional tour starts in Hatton’s hometown of Manchester at the well-known Trafford Center commercial center on Saturday.
There will be a Monday media conference in London which may be held at the Imperial War Museum. The event will be highlighted by a “darts competition” between Pacquiao and Hatton.
The Sun newspaper reported that Hatton will meet Pacquiao on the oche (the line where they shoot the darts from) with Phil “The Power” Taylor, a friend of Hatton acting as referee at the Rover’s Return, which is the set of the TV series Coronation Street .
Knowing Pacquiao’s penchant for playing darts in his Palazzo apartment in Los Angeles, Arum said “Ricky is good at darts but Manny is a real whiz. My man won’t be paying for the beer.” (full article...)
