The name of The New York Times newspaper resounds with great respect in my Eastern European country Bulgaria. The edition is known around the world as one of the top sources of information and interesting articles.
A month ago, Sam Broden, the European sports correspondent of The NY Times, approached me via e-mail. He wanted to make an article about the great Bulgarian boxer Serafim Todorov. The reason is upcoming May 2 bout between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao. The noise around the super-fight is enormous, so every reporter in USA is looking for some interesting angle.
