In a boxing-related blog 
article from The Telegraph UK site,
Robert 'Bob' Arum who is a well renowned founder and CEO of Top Rank (a professional boxing promotion company based in Las Vegas) confirmed that the Pinoy world champ boxing icon Manny 'Pacman' Pacquiao will sit as one of the judges in the upcoming Miss Universe in Doral, Miami this January.

Bob was quoted saying while discussing about the Pacquiao-Mayweather fight next year, that "the only thing we're planning with Pacquiao (in early 2015) is that he's going to be a judge in one of these beauty contests, Miss World or Miss Universe, the one in Miami this January," added Arum. 

Just like Manny Pacquiao, Mary Jean Lastimosa who will be the Philippines' flag bearer for the most prestigious beauty derby also hails from Mindanao. The boxing legend is General Santos city's pride while the beauty queen is North Cotabato's prime jewel with the latter's hometown just a few hours bus ride from the former's hometurf.

With Pacman as one of the judges, do you see it as a huge advantage with the Philippines' bet? Or could it be the other way around? What do you think will be MJ's chances?
