Video Hype: Manny Pacquiao: Inside the Philippine Phenomenon from Fight Camp 360

Here's another bonus video from Showtime's Fight Camp 360, which airs on Saturday night at 10pm EDT, right before the Juan Manuel Lopez-Orlando Salido fight. In this 90-second clip, we explore the unmatched popularity of Pacquiao in his homeland. I figure Pacquiao just in the Philippines has more presence than any other fighter's world presence.

You know, now that we've seen them do a big, event-type fight with the Fight Camp 360 format, I think I can say without question that I like it more than HBO's 24/7, and that's not a knock on 24/7, which I enjoy greatly. It's all just a bit less melodramatic. It's kind of like comparing The Allman Brothers Band to Lynyrd Skynyrd, with Fight Camp 360 being the Allman Brothers Band and 24/7 being Lynyrd Skynyrd. I actually prefer Skynyrd in that scenario, but they're a lot more dramatic lyrically, while the Allmans focused more on the technical and the jammin', and I understand why many prefer the Allmans, because I now have this boxing reality show comparison.
