Manny Pacquiao Hijacks Myspace on Day of Shane Mosley Fight

WBC Super Welterweight World Champion and WBO Welterweight World Champion Manny Pacquiao will get in the ring with Myspace Saturday, as the consensus pound-for-pound No. 1 boxer will “Hijack” the social network to promote his bout against Shane Mosley in Las Vegas Saturday night.

Myspace will offer exclusive footage of Pacquiao training for the Mosley fight, as well as curated content from Pacquiao, including Dan Hill’s “Sometimes When We Touch” and The Black Eyed Peas’ “Boom Boom Pow.”

There will also be a contest where fans can Tweet Myspace for a chance to win signed Pacquiao memorabilia.

Other celebrities to participate in Myspace Hijacking include Simon Cowell and The X Factor in April, The Black Eyed Peas and Jack Black in December 2010, Russell Simmons in January, and National Basketball Association All-Star Blake Griffin in February.
