Empty Metro Manila: The Pacquiao Effect

By on May 6, 2015


Manny Pacquiao’s fights are like holidays in the Philippines. Everybody stops what they’re doing and tunes in to watch every punch and cheer for the Pambansang Kamao.

Sunday’s fight (May 3 in the Philippines) was extra special. It was, as some said, the fight of the century (I’m just not sure if they’d agree now). It was Manny ‘Pacman’ Pacquiao vs. Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather.

When Manny fought Money, almost everybody tuned in and yes, Manila was like a ghost town.
