Superstars Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers and Derek Jeter of the New York Yankees can’t wait for the Manny Pacquiao vs. Miguel Cotto mega fight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on November 14. “I love Manny,” said Kobe. “I enjoy being around people who are just as competitive, who have the same passion and work ethic. If I don’t have a game that night I’ll be there.” Jeter is looking for two ringside tickets. The New York Giants football team is off that weekend and some of the top players will be heading in for the fight. One of Cotto’s biggest fans is Carlos Beltran of the New York Mets. He has been at ringside for many of Cotto’s big fights. “We are getting so many calls from sports and entertainment stars,” said Bob Arum. “This is going to be a premier sports event.” Kobe met Pacquiao at a recent Nike commerical video shoot in Los Angeles. Kobe spoke about Pacquiao while at a Nike press function in Makati City, Philippines. Kobe was quoted about Manny on the GMA.News.TV website.
