Others will just be plain happy to catch a glimpse of the world's no. 1 pound for pound king Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao, even from afar. And getting his autograph or a snapshot with him is definitely a bonus.
San Miguel Brewery Inc. (SMB), however, makes the ultimate dream of every boxing fan come true -- the once-in-a-lifetime chance not just to meet and greet the legendary Pacman but to sit down with him, and yes, talk about his post-May 8 fight in Las Vegas over bottles of ice cold-San Miguel Beer.
"Nothing beats the thrill of spending some time with Manny Pacquiao, a boxing hero, a self-made champion, the Filipino pride. Our consumer promo is one way of further delighting our loyal San Miguel Beer friends who we hope to inspire by Manny's stories of hard work, great faith and love for his roots," said SMB President Roberto N. Huang.
The Wala Kang Katulad promo of San Miguel Beer is a welcome treat for Filipino boxing fans who will surely thirst for stories -- straight from Pacman himself -- about the much-anticipated battle of the boxing legends in Las Vegas on May 7 (May 8 in Manila).
Pacquiao will fight with American Sugar Shane Mosely, a future boxing hall of famer. To join the promo, just watch the Pacquiao-Mosley fight live in any of San Miguel Beer's Viewing Parties in 160 bars and restaurants nationwide.
For every purchase of any three (3) San Miguel Beer at designated SMB partner establishments, the consumer is entitled to a one (1) raffle stub for a chance to win a limited edition Manny Pacquiao signed T- shirt, or any one of the six (6) slots in the meet and greet bash.
Promo winners will be notified of the final schedule, to be slated a few weeks following the fight.
SMB will bring in winners from the South Luzon Area, Central and North Luzon Area, Visayas and Mindanao to Metro Manila where the rendezvous will be held.
SMB is the maker of San Miguel Pale Pilsen, San Miguel Premium All-Malt, San Miguel Super Dry, Cerveza Negra, San Mig Strong Ice, Red Horse Beer, San Mig Light and Gold Eagle Beer.
The beer market leader also brews the limited edition Oktoberfest beer, the non-alcoholic beverage Cali, and the first fruit-flavored beers in the country, the new San Miguel Alcoholic Malt Beverage in Lemon and Apple flavors.
Since 2006, Pacquiao has been part of the San Miguel Beer family, a partnership which Huang describes as "samahang walang katulad" (a bond unlike any other).
