Manny Pacquiao

Who said I'm only into wrestling and basketball? I really don't watch boxing that much but when it comes to a match involving Manny Pacquiao, just like any other Filipino, I watch it. Right now in the Philippines, there a lot of political issues, crisis, scam, crime, and a lot more negative issues you can think of. But what does it have to do with Manny Pacquiao's match? Everybody stops what they're doing. Crime rate is almost zero during Manny's boxing match. Can you believe it? That's how we support our countrymen. But after the match, it's back to normal.

Maybe Pacquiao should have a match everyweek or maybe even everyday. He can help stop crimes just by boxing. Unite Filipinos against the political issues. Of course that's impossible. We just have to face the reality. At least, for a few hours, he united the Filipinos.

Last Sunday was his fight against Marquez. It's the Pacquiao vs Marquez part 2. It was an awesome but controversial fight. Manny won. Or did he? In the eyes of the judges yes, but for some, it's the other way around. It was so close that it could go either way. Even some Filipinos thought Marquez won the fight. But some accepted it that it was so close, they wouldn't surprise if Marquez won, or Pacquiao won or it's a draw. Maybe if I were on Marquez's side, I would disagree on the decision. That's why he want a rematch. Will there be a Pacquiao vs Marquez 3? Rumors say that Pacquiao will move up on the 135 division. So if Marquez wants a rematch, he just have to follow the path of Pacquiao.. ..the lightweight division.
