Yao Ming is 7'6". Manny Pacquiao is listed at 5'6½", while Brandon Rios, his November 23 opponent in Macao, China, is listed at 5'8". As you might expect, then, a photo of Yao standing between Pacquiao and Rios is comical, because he is about two feet taller than they are, which is hilarious.
Here's the photo of that happening in Shanghai, on the Pacquiao-Rios press tour:
Oh man, you guys. It's, like, Yao is this tall, but Manny and Brandon are only that tall. Pacquiao offers a helpful visual aid by not just standing there, but also using his hand to indicate how tall he is in comparison to the person standing next to him. That's the sort of thing that only a savvy press tour veteran thinks up on the spot. As you can see, Rios just has his hands in his pockets.
Also, is it just me, or does Manny Pacquiao have the most awesome collection of shirts that could also be tablecloth patterns in the history of mankind?
