Pacquiao_v_cotto_4920
Manny Pacquiao may be under the spotlight on Saturday as he faces Timothy Bradley in the boxing ring, but according to the Wall Street Journal, it is Pacquiao’s best friend, Pacman, who deserves the attention. Pacman gives new meaning to the phrase man’s best friend.  Pacman is a Jack Russell terrier, but he ain’t just a dog.  Pacman is the secret behind Pacquiao’s success.  From sprinting around the track to running up the mountains to even mimicing his yoga moves, Pacman is there for Pacquiao’s every move.  They train together and Pacquiao even brings him to the Mandalay Bay hotel in Las Vegas for his fights. Sadly, Pacman has put on a few pounds and wrinkles and is struggling to keep up with Pacquaio on this go around, but he still managed to nab a big spread in WSJ.  Hopefully these two can stay best friends as they age and have to now share the spotlight!
