Wynn Casino Resort, Las Vegas: After all the talk the seemingly much awaited return of the legend and the reigning WBO champion finally got its real start. Never mind what was all said at the past press conferences, this is for real.
This afternoon, at the famed Wynn Resorts Casino, (did anyone missed the MGM Garden Arena and its ambiance?) at the other end of the strip, Top Rank and MP Promotions and their partners had the official weigh-in.
Who would know, they had to issue tickets to the fans that wanted to see the event. Not that there were a horde of them. It’s more because the room where they had the event was very small to handle the crowd, which admittedly was not really like those in the past Pacquiao fights.
But the event went on smoothly. Interestingly enough they had to have two emcees to introduce the fighters.
Xu Que -Taizhou, China (9-0-1,2KO) -125 lbs.
Fernando (Riverside, CA) 8-7-0,2KO – 124.5
