Another professional wrestling star has taken his hat off for Manny Pacquiao as he acknowledged the Filipino champion’s international stature.

World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) superstar John Cena said Pacquiao’s immense popularity inside and outside the boxing ring has made him a “crossover star.”

“[He’s] very well loved not only in the boxing community,” said the wrestler.

Cena said the charisma and crossover appeal being exuded by the Fighter of the Decade makes Pacquiao something special.

[With] his popularity… you can transcend the industry you’re in. He is doing something right,” he said.

Cena, a former WWE title holder, knows the latest about Pacquiao’s boxing career.

He knows the Filipino champion will have his World Boxing Organization (WBO) welterweight title defense against Shane Mosley.

He’s (Pacquiao) got a big fight coming up. I think he’s extremely skilled,” said Cena.

Earlier, WWE superstar Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson also picked the Filipino boxer to win over Mosley.

“I love Pacquiao, love Mosley too as well [but] my nod goes to Pacquiao,” he had said. – With a report from Dyan Castillejo, ABS-CBN News
