The current lead singer of Journey, Arnel Pineda, sings the Philippine National Anthem.

Three Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders do the American National Anthem.

Lampley says HBO has been denied the opportunity to get Clottey’s weight tonight.

Tonight’s attendance is 50,994, making this the third largest U.S. boxing crowd in the last 50 years. The most was the second fight between Muhammad Ali and Leon Spinks in the Superdome and the second was Pernell Whitaker and Julio Cesar Chavez in the Alamodome.

These could be the longest ring walks ever recorded based on how long it is taking Clottey to make his way into the actual arena. He begins dancing once visible to the fans. If he is at all nervous about the prospect of fighting Pacquiao in front of 51,000, he is masking it extremely well.

Pacquiao has apparently adopted Arturo Gatti’s “Thunderstruck” as his theme song. He also plays “Eye of the Tiger,” utilizing the same songs he entered to against Miguel Cotto. Pacquiao, of course, is all smiles.
