Pacman a crossover star?
This is an excerpt from this RING online article, written by Doug Fisher:
Allow me to give you one more example of his ever-growing popularity.
As I walked to my car following Cotto’s media workout in L.A. on Tuesday, I was stopped by two elderly African-American women in an SUV. They were curious about all the commotion outside of the Pound4Pound Gym.
I told them that “the boxer Miguel Cotto had just held an open workout for the media.”
The lady in the passenger seat replied: “Miguel who?”
“Cotto,” I told her. “He fights Manny Pacquiao next Saturday.”
Her eyes lit up with the mention of Pacquiao’s name.
“Oh!” she said as she turned to the driver, “he’s the one who’s fighting Manny Pacquiao!”
Folks, the crossover has already begun.
