Five ways to support Manny Pacquiao on May 3
MANILA, Philippines—After years of push and pull towards the boxing ring, five-division world champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. and the country’s very own eight-division world champion Manny Pacquiao are finally settling the score in a fight seemingly considered as the biggest of the century.
For what it’s worth, tickets to the show slated on May 3, 2015 (May 2, 2015 in the U.S.) at the MGM Grand Garden Arena sold out in a minute after going on sale.
Now while those in the U.S. bought tickets to the actual show to enjoy the game and express support for the Pacman, how are you planning to show the rest of the world your support for the country’s ultimate boxing pride? Apart from buying viewing party passes for you and your friends—or perhaps your family—here are five easy ways on how you can shout your support for the People’s Champ:
1: Showcase your own knockout moves
By simply capturing your best knockout moves in a photo and by uploading it on social media (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter) with the hashtag #SugodManny, you already proclaim your unyielding support for the Pacman. But here’s the catch: the netizen with the best knockout move may win a signed Manny Pacquiao boxing glove and shirt!
2: Use #SugodManny scenes on Camera 360
Since you’re sharing your knockout moves on social media, why not groom your image with #SugodManny scenes available on the Camera 360 app? Sounds good, yeah? Just download the Camera 360 app, go to Explore, choose Poster Art, click Apply, and choose the best PacMan scene for your selfie!
But if you think your knockout move photo is too awesome for a still, then turn it into a GIF using Smart’s GIF creator at http://www.smart.com.ph/SugodManny, just don’t forget to share that knockout move GIF on social media with the hashtag #SugodManny.
4: Use Pacman stickers
