May 7th, 2011. Millions will gather at homes and sports bars to witness one of the most talked-about boxing bouts in recent memory. Manny ‘PacMan’ Pacquiao, the fist-wielding fury from the Philippines, will face off against ‘Sugar’ Shane Mosley, the California-native and former WBA Welterweight Super Champion. Pacquiao’s been one of the faces of Nike Training over the last few years and rightfully so; his unparalleled work ethic has boosted him to the top of the boxing ranks and is considered to be the biggest name in the sport that has admittedly dropped in popularity due to the emergence of other fight-sports. The PacMan/Sugar fight will certainly draw attention back to boxing, and we’ll keep our eyes out for PacMan’s feet, because he could be wearing something special, like this Nike Zoom Huarache TR Low PE. The inspiration of PacMan’s Filipino heritage is made evident through the white/blue/red/gold upper colorway, with Pacquiao’s Nike logo on the bottom sole as well as the circular badge on the tongue. Many of PacMan’s Nike Trainers have been hits, and this one’s another knock-out in the making. Check out the extra images below and let us know what you think. via dynamitenter of NT.
