There are approximately 3.5 million Filipinos and people of Filipino ancestry in the United States. (Almost as many as Puerto Ricans living in the mainland U.S.) The population of the Philippines is over 92 million. That's a lot of people to get interested in boxing. It makes perfect business sense to go after that demographic. Pacquiao gets credit for the surge in Pinoy interest in boxing, but the promoters are doing the smart thing and trying to keep the pipeline going with guys like the ones on tonight's undercard.
