This morning, I have spent bonding time with my sisters and my brother-in-law. We had a lazy morning watching a boxing event dubbed as Pilipinas vs. the Rest of the World featuring Rey “Boom Boom” Bautista and other Filipino boxers. We are among the millions of Filipinos who won’t let a boxing event pass without witnessing it even just on the television.
It also happens especially when there is a Manny Pacquiao boxing fight. As I have observed that our area especially the street which is usually busy due to traffic becomes very quiet. The only thing you will hear is the shouts of boxing aficionados. The world seems to stop to all Filipinos from all walks of life. They would stop whatever they are doing just to watch Pacman throw his powerful punches. He made all of us happy everytime he goes out and fight on the ring bringing honor to our country. In the Philippines, whenever you mention boxing, it is always associated with Manny Pacquiao.
In our office, we are not exempted from those people who are eagerly awaits his every fight. We would even find something exciting to do like having a sport bet so that when Pacquiao wins our happiness is doubled not only with the honor he brings but the financial reward too. I was really disappointed when the Pacquiao-Mayweather did materialized. But with the upcoming Mosley-Mayweather bout, there is still a possibility that they would face each other if Mayweather wins over Mosley. This is something I want to happen.
