Although the airing will be a bit late (as usual), still a lot of Pinoys will be able to see the fight on the same day. Solar Sports even reported that this unprecedented broadcasting event for the fight was also Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao's request to GMA Network and that the Pambansang Kamao even made the phone call himself to GMA to personally request for it. Good Guy Manny! And thankfully GMA granted it. : )
