Pacquaio- Marquez Fight: Business as usual
I am more a Chess fan than Boxing (I don’t like blood) but my time to appreciate it became recently only with Manny Pacquiao as the boxer who is still the Champion. People like to dream and Manny with his multi tasking skills as a singer, congressman, entrepreneur and print ad model and not to mention his evergrowing empire makes the Filipinos “proud” or “envious”.
I am a proud Filipino and proud about the talents of Pinoy but a lot of different reactions from yesterdays fight make me wonder about the truth..well for me, winner or not, it’s always business as usual.

Pacquiao must win. Or we are in danger of having him as a full-time congressman.

Pinoy pride and being a Pacquiao fan aside, JMM came in prepared and fought awesomely. Pacman won but JMM stole the show. Congrats, Manny.

I wouldn't argue TOO much with a 114-114 score. But 116-112 for Pacquiao is insane.
