Manny Pacquiao tops Tiger Woods, Lebron James as Yahoo's Most-Searched Sports Figure of 2010

Manny Pacquiao just added an extraordinary new title to his collection — Yahoo’s Most-Searched Sports Star of 2010. Pacquiao landed first on a top 10 list that includes tiger Woods Brett Favre, Lebron James, Danica Patrick, and Maria Sharapova. For those of who have been following Manny’s rise through the years, this is a compelling and thought-provoking statistic. To think that a Filipino boxer — laboring in a sport that has become a niche rather than mainstream like the NBA or pro golf — lands at the top of this list is in many ways the most compelling evidence yet that Pacquiao is emerging as a true global superstar. There is much to think about here but for now — I’ll leave it at congrats to Manny and all Filipinos …. a proud day indeed. The full top 10 list follows:
