It is common knowledge that the Manny Pacquiao's fights are treated as a holiday in the Philippines. Practically everyone is at home watching the fight, so the streets are empty of people. It is also a running joke that the crime rate plunges to zero during this time.

surprise that the fight telecasts get high TV ratings each time. In fact, last

show in 2014.
This 2015, eight division boxing champion Manny Pacquiao will face Floyd Mayweather in the bout being promoted as the "fight of the century."
