I'm not sure how they planned to do that actually. I was kind of thinking maybe it would only air in the Philippines. There's a small faction of fighters there and people who follow the sport so I was guessing it would be all Filipino fighters with some American trainers or maybe Munoz against somebody else, I dunno.
GSP was there a not too long ago visiting Pacquiao during his training and when he stepped outside on his hotel balcony, the traffic stopped, and everybody started looking up at him. He said it was overwhelming but cool as he didn't know he would be that noticeable there (except for the white skin of course, lol).
BTW, I lol'ed on your nickname for Munoz. His parents are full-blooded Filipinos (I believe his father was in the U.S. Navy) as he was born on a U.S. military base in Japan, they later moved to Cali.
