MANILA – Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao was selected to be one of the judges for the 63rd annual Miss Universe pageant on January 25th in Miami, Florida in the United States of America.
As early as December 2014, the eight-division world champion was being slated to judge the prestigious event. His promoter Bob Arum broke the news, jokingly adding that it was the one definite plan they have for early 2015.
"The only thing we're planning with Pacquiao (early in 2015) is that he's going to be a judge at one of these beauty contests – Miss World or Miss Universe, the one in Miami, in January," Arum told The Telegraph.
Along with Pacquiao on the judges’ table are some notable names in the showbiz industry: TV host and shoe designer Kristin Cavallari, film and television actor William Levy, fashion journalist Lousie Roe, and “The Real Wives of Beverly Hills” star Lisa Vanderpump.
