Eight-division boxing world champion Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao will have a big star accompanying him to the ring when he walks out for his WBA (Super) Welterweight World Championship bout against Keith Thurman at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, Satuday evening (Sunday morning, Manila time).
In fact, this star is quite...universal.
Set to walk Manny down to the ring will be none other than Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray.

The Fil-Australian is the fourth Miss Universe winner from the Philippines, and the second in the last three years.
Catriona Gray joins a long list of stars that have walked with Pacquiao down to the ring, along with the likes of professional wrestling legends Batista and the Undertaker, and comedian Jimmy Kimmel.
