MANILA, Philippines - Shane Mosley simply can't wait to size up Manny Pacquiao.
Top publicist Fred Sternburg told the Bulletin from his homebase in Denver that not only is Pacquiao fully booked for media interviews and all those promotional stuff but Mosley's schedule is likewise filled during a four-city, six-day press tour meant to drum up more interest for their May 7 clash.

The tour will kick off Feb. 10 at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles followed by a stop in Las Vegas on Feb. 12, a gig in New York on Feb. 14 and an appearance only by Pacquiao in Washington on Feb. 15.
Sternburg said Mosley will stay a couple of days more in New York for another round of interviews, a testament to the interest in the fight that will take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, whose 16,000 seats have all been sold after only three
hours of salling last week.
"I heard Mosley's very excited to begin the press tour and fight Manny," said Sternburg, who has been tasked once again by Top Rank chief Bob Arum to handle the PR work for Pacquiao.
Although Sternburg is the man tapped to work for Pacquiao, also expected to lend a helping hand in other fields of publicity are Top Rank mainstays Lee Samuels and Ricardo Jimenez.
Team Pacquiao is arriving in Los Angeles on the evening of Feb. 9 via Philippine Airlines and choice members of the pound-for-pound king's entourage are going to be flown to Sin City on a private plane on Feb. 11 in time for the MGM Grand appearance
the next day.
From Las Vegas, Team Pacquiao and Arum and his support group are taking a commercial flight to New York on Feb. 13 for a press conference at the Chelsea Pier on Valentine's Day.
The last leg will be a trip to Wasington to see Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada on Feb. 15.
A meeting with President Barack Obama is still being worked out by Arum's friends in high places.
