Seven-division titlist, Manny Pacquiao, of the Philippines, will be featured in an upcoming segment of 60 minutes, Top Rank publicist, Lee Samuels, told FanHouse on Sunday.

Pacquiao (50-3-2, 38 knockouts), who already has graced the cover of the Asian edition of 
Time Magazine, earned his current WBO welterweight (147 pounds) title with November's 12th-round knockout of Miguel Cotto, and will defend it on March 13 at The Dallas Cowboys' Stadium in Arlington, Tex., against Joshua Clottey (35-3, 20 KOs).

"Their crews will be with him throughout the days leading up to the fight, and they will be at the fight and have full access during the fight and after the fight," said Samuels. "They're hopes were that they are planning to release the segment sometime before his next fight, so they're talking about it airing in September." 

Pacquiao was recently named Fighter Of The Year for the third time, Fighter Of The Decade for the first time, and his trainer, 
Freddie Roach (Pictured above, at left, with Pacquiao), Trainer Of The Year for an unprecedented fourth time -- all both by the Boxing Writers Association of America.
