Yao Ming and Manny Pacquiao are two of the biggest sports celebrities in the world, and certainly in the Asian world. They have both helped to spark entire waves of fans and practitioners in their respective disciplines, Yao Ming with basketball, and Pacquiao of course with boxing. I’m not sure if these two have ever crossed paths before, but certainly as different as they seem, they are two individuals who would have a lot of common, and collectively wield a lot of power and influence in their cultures and societies.
