Black vs. Not so Black

Manny Pacquioa

Pacman

It was a decade of my plain view in boxing, not until Emmanuel Dapidran Pacquioa (courtesy of Google.com) aka Manny “Pacman” Pacquioa spiced up my taste in the ring. Pacman’s big break was when he beat Lehlohonolo Ledwaba and replaced him as Super Bantamweight chmapion, Manny has constantly step forward into success of his career. As well as his most exciting fights against Mexican boxing icons like Marc Antonio Barrera, Juan Manuel Marquez, Erik Morales, Hector Velaquez, Oscar Larios and Jorge Solis. Due to draw decision of judges about Barrera and Pacquioa’s fight, they finally had a rematch last 2007 for a record.

paquiao's titles

Another for the record match of Manny Pacquiao was his battle versus David Diaz and Oscar De La Hoya, these are the best fights that put Pacman to the top. As well as Ricky Hatton’s disappointing performance inside the ring which only led into two rounds of defeat for Hatton. Even his fight against Miguel Cotto which fairly stopped up to the last round.

clottey and pacquiao

Having not less than eight significant titles in the field of boxing, Pacman is now again trying to test his luck beating Joshua Clottey for another milestone of his career. Manny is truly one of the best athletes on Earth. Pacman will always be a pride of Philippines in sports most especially in boxing arena. Either wins or losses in his future challenges with other boxers, I’ll be in Manny Pacquiao’s side.

God bless you Pacman!! ^_^

NBA Dream Game

Never imagined how tougher was the previous play-offs performance of Cleveland Cavaliers versus Orlando Magic has been. Albeit of I’m already hooked up to Cavs, I still love Boston Celtics, Chicago Bulls (of course, The Legend, Michael Jordan), San Antonio Spurs, and LA Lakers. The great tandems of the 21st century and the new image of 23 is LeBron James of Cavs together with Anderson Varejao and now more spicy than ever with Shaq! Of Lakers there’s Kobe Bryant who took over the reign in the NBA court paired to Pau Gasol of Spain, an international Player.

Forces of Magic turned out to diminish by LA higher energy and greater stamina level, Lakers aggressiveness due to their previous losses was counted. Hopefully, Lakers and Cavs will get into the finals, a face-to-face game of the year, and honestly, I’m actually dreaming of witnessing my both fave teams compete each other. James versus Bryant; Varejao versus Gasol (both international players one from Brazil and other from Spain respectively), Oh! I don’t think Shaq will comply neither of the two pairs however, for sure this battle will be remembered.

Unfortunately, (T.T) my dream limits itself to a flat screen TV in our house because I don’t have any grounds to buy a ticket to US, so sad. Always seeing them playing, doing tricks, love to look at the crowd screaming for Lakers and Cavs. Love NBA!
