Christmas is here once again. It’s a time for peace & love to one another, and a time for Family bonding. And for this post, I’ll talk about Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao’s Double Disappointment for us Pinoys.
Last June 9, Manny Pacquiao unfortunately lost over Timothy Bradley. Looks like the decision is so unclear because Pacquiao gave more punches than Bradley in most rounds. The decision came clear with the Las Vegas judges. Duane Ford and CJ Ross declared Bradley as winner with 115-113. On the other hand, Jerry Roth declared Pacquiao as winner with 115-113. However, to make things better, the scores from the 5-man panel judges declared that Pacquiao won over Bradley with 117-111, 117-111, 118-110, 116-112, and 115-113. And that means, by unanimous decision, Pacquiao won over Bradley.
However, WBO Pres. Paco Valcarcel said that the unanimous decision they made wasn’t even close. And worse, the WBO won’t change their decision or force Bradley to give up the crown. And that means, they’re cheating. I know it’s not Pacquiao’s fault. It’s the fault of judges Ford and Ross. They seem jealous that Pacquiao always win, so they cheat on the scores & made Bradley win. Or they were blind, they thought Bradley gave more punches than Pacquiao. It’s also Valcarcel’s fault for not changing decisions. The video clip of the fight was clear. Pacquiao gave more punches than Bradley. Thus, Pacquiao should’ve been declared the winner in the 1st place. These 3 people weren’t making good decisions at all, so screw them!
And you thought Pacman won in his recent game? Think not, because it’s too tragic.
Last December 9, On Manny Pacquiao’s 4th fight with Juan Manuel Marquez, Marquez has finally won. On Round 2, Marquez had stepped on Pacquiao’s foot. And that’s cheating, but judges don’t seem to care. On Round 3, Marquez gave Pacquiao an overhand, which temporarily knocked him down. Pacquiao recovered quickly on Round 4. However, halfway the game, Marquez gave Pacquiao a powerful punch, which knocked him out & left him unconscious. As a result, Marquez won the fight.
What’s wrong with Pacquiao here? Did he give up? Did he lack energy? Was it his change in religion? It may be either of those, I don’t really know. Pacquiao shouldn’t have given up in the middle of the fight. He should’ve recovered right away, just like what he did on Round 4, and kept on fighting. A person said, because he lost to Marquez, Pacman became Weakman. It seems a bit legit to me, though insulting. After all, Pacquiao shouldn’t have planned his 4th fight with Marquez in the 1st place. Besides, their 3rd fight is good enough. It’s nobody’s fault, for this was just a fair fight. Anyway, congratulations to Marquez for defeating the immortal Pacman. You deserve the title, but Pacquiao is still our champ.
It’s kinda disappointing that Pacquiao never won a single game this year. But, he’ll never give up on fighting. Whether he wins or loses a game, he’s still our champion. And, I wanna greet him a Belated Happy Birthday to him. More birthdays & fights to come. And speaking of the End of the World, it (and the one you saw in the movie 2012) didn’t take effect last Dec. 21, and it’s good that we’re still alive & kicking. The Bible says, No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father (Mark 13:32). I wish you people a Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year!
