This from the Yankees:

On Thursday, September 10 at noon, Yankee Stadium will host a press conference on the field to announce the upcoming boxing match between Miguel Cotto and Manny Pacquiao, taking place on November 14, 2009, at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas.

Gates will open at 11:00 a.m. to the public for the free event, with the press conference slated to begin at noon.


Hopefully this event is a precursor to an actual fight taking place at the Stadium. That would be a great event to see. The old Stadium, as you know, hosted some historic fights over the years.

Pacquiao is the most exciting fighter in the sport right now and he would draw a ton of people if he ever fought at the Stadium.
