"Manny has been a pioneer, bringing world title fights to Cowboys Stadium, The Venetian Macao's Cotai Arena and now Suncorp Stadium.  We're boxing's version of Lewis & Clark, discovering new markets," said Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum.  " Manny knows who will be the crowd favorite on July 1, but he can't wait to give Australia and the world a great performance.  It's going to be unbelievable event."
