Pacquiao on Jimmy Kimmel Live

Pacquiao is a crossover superstar.
Boxing's pound-for-pound king and Filipino superstar Manny Pacquiao is scheduled to appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live. ABC's late-night talk show would also feature Pamela Anderson in the same episode. The live taping of the show will be on November 3, eleven days before Pacquiao's big fight against Miguel Cotto.
This goes to show that the Filipino boxer has to a degree become a hit mainstream. The other marquee name in boxing, and the other argument for the pound-for-pound throne, Floyd Mayweather, Jr., last appeared on the same show in 2007, after he and his "Dancing with the Stars" partner was voted off in the competition. Mayweather was featured in a short segment by MTV just a week ago.
For those people in the L.A. area who wish to witness Pacquiao on the show live, tickets are available here.
