Marikina Freedom Park Holds Free Viewing of Pacquiao vs. Margarito Fight

Marikina residents who don't have access to cable pay-per-view or watch the boxing bout live in select cinemas were treated to a free live via satellite viewing at the Marikina Freedom Park.  The city of Marikina setup 2 of its LED trucks in the front of City Hall for people to enjoy the match.   The park, which could accommodate up to 3,000 people was opened to the public as early as 7 a.m.

Marikina Mayor Del De Guzman stated that providing the citizens the opportunity to watch for free and cheer for Manny Pacquiao is the least they could do as a simple way of honoring the pound-for-pound king.
