DALLAS, TEXAS -- As "The Event" draws closer and closer, celebrities and sports personalities here in Dallas are beginning to arrive from all across the globe. Today, honorable WBC President Jose Sulaiman arrived in Dallas to watch his WBC Diamond belt champion Manny Pacquiao on Saturday at Jerry Jones' larger than life Dallas Stadium.
It's not every day when you get the opportunity to meet and talk to one of the true legends and institutions of the sport. When I asked the WBC president who he felt was going to win the big fight this Saturday, he was careful to say that he did not do predictions, but some provocation from this scribe, Sulaiman said "Pacquiao... Pacquiao will win".
To cap things off, Sulaiman asked one of his liaisons to unwrap the WBC belt from his luggage and handed it to me. The liaison then asked if I wanted a picture with the gracious president. "Of course!" I answered.
