LAS VEGAS, Nevada - According to boxing world-famous guru Bob Arum, the friendly boxing rivalry between the Philippines and Mexico translates from the fighting ring into other friendly competitions like which country has the more beautiful ladies.
So, since both nations can boast some of the most gorgeous women in the world, the Hall of Famer promoter brought none other than Miss Philippines and Miss Mexico into the stage Hollywood Theater of the MGM Grand Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, as part of the promotion for this Saturday's major boxing event Pacquiao-Marquez4 at the MGM Grand Arena here in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The lovely 23-year old Miss Philippines Janine Tugonon of Balaga, Bataan Province and stunner Miss Mexico Karina Gonzalez, 21, of Aguascalientes, Mexico are in town as representatives of their respective countries in the most talked-about beauty pageant in the planet, Miss Universe 2012, to be held on Wednesday December 19th at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.
Pacquiao and Marquez were invited to pose for photos with the statuesque beauties and during those few seconds the two boxers felt like the luckiest men in the world.
