Boxing - Boxing icon Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao (51-3-2) graces a new Nike television commercial entitled "Boom."  The ad revolves around the themes of aggressiveness and physical contact in a variety of sports including boxing.

The brief commercial lasts for approximately 20 seconds, and features - among other athletes - Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh and Denver Broncos back-up quarterback Tim Tebow.  Tebow, a former standout quarterback at the University of Florida, was born in the Philippines where Pacquiao is from.

Pacquiao's lightweight championship bout with David Diaz from 2008 is prominently shown on an old television screen.  Clips of the Filipino icon knocking out the overmatched David Diaz are displayed as Suh and Tebow watch on television.

The "Pacman" is currently training in Baguio City in the northern Philippines for an upcoming November 13 fight with Antonio Margarito (39-6) of Mexico.  The bout will take place at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
