For Pacquiao Fanatics!

Manny Pacquiao, a 27 years old, is now the 3 time champion of the world. Boxing was one famous sports in our country, also because alot of Filipino boxers won several medals of recognitions and titles worldwide. It made Filipinoes famous, and our country Philippines as well.

Last January 22, 2006 it seemed like the world had stopped, everyone were infront of the television watching Pacquiao's fight. It was as if the fight of Filipinoes versus the World. It is also about letting the world know that we are proud Filipino and will fight a good fight for our country's pride.

Morales said, "I will not fight for my country, I will fight for myself", in contrast to Manny's song "Para sa 'yo ang laban na to, para sa 'yo bayan ko". You see the difference between these two boxers: one fighting for himself, and one for his country?

I would say Manny Pacquiao was a hero, and he deserved our support. He made us Filipinoes happy, united and proud.

Take it from a friend who worked abroad, called up her dad and asked " Pa kumusta man mo dha (how are you)", his dad answered "Nia malipayon kay nidaug man si Pacquiao (here happy because Pacquiao won)". This man, just like most of us, does not know Manny personally, but in his heart as Pinoy had this chance to be proud and happy.

3 Time World Boxing Champion

Mabuhay si Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao!
