By Jay Fermin PW
Los Angeles: The World Lightweight Title will be on the line as newly crowned World Boxing Council (WBC) super featherweight champion Manny Pacquiao battles WBC lightweight champion comeback David Diaz in a 12 round fight this Saturday, June 28, 2008 at the luxurious Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. Bout Producer will be HBO and will air the fight starting at 9 PM ET / 6 PM PT live via HBO Pay-Per View. Fil-Am Media Photographers have begun their caravan to glitzy Las Vegas including Fronliners Media Group's very own veteran photographers Manny Ortega, Benny Uy, and Joe Cobilla to capture the fight blow by blow thru their lens.
Waiting for the expected huge crowd of boxing spectators at Mandalay Bay before the fight will be Issue # 2 of the newest magazine to enter the US market: “M7 MAG”. According to the publishers and editors, ‘M7 MAG started as an idea and now has become a mission.' They plan to showcase the rise of the Filipino American success in various fields including the film, television, fashion and business. The M7 Magazine family is led by Editor-In-Chief and very successful artist Antoinette Cherish Taus herself. Other members of the Editorial Staff are Rosetti Angela Robles, Joanne Khris Contreras, Sweet Anne Distrito, Priscilla Ledesma and Methusela Olimpo. Senior Graphic Designer is Stanlee Gonzalvo while photographers for the magazine are Joseph Dilag and Bren Evangelio.
The March debut issue looked very exciting and showcased an article on Manny Pacquiao. Also on the debut issue is one of the youngest Filipino-American legend in import car racing, RJ De Vera. The First Annual Filipino American Visionary Awards was also featured. The second issue to be distributed Saturday at the Pacquiao - Diaz fight will feature Apl.de.Ap of the Black Eyed Peas on the cover.
I am excited for these young editors and staff of ‘M7 Mag’ and especially to the amiable Editor-In-Chief Antoinette Taus who will be accompanied to the Mandalay fight by Apl.de.Ap of the Black Eyed Peas. Pubisher is Manuel Paez of Manila Forwarders / Travel PH.
Everybody is looking forward to the Pacquiao-Diaz fight. ‘M7 Mag’ issue # 2 will make sure that the spectators at Mandalay Bay will go home with one of the best and unique newest glossy magazine that will show the world the greatness of the Filipino people.
Congratulations to ‘M7 MAG’ and our best to the champion Manny Pacquiao
