Guess who showed his soft side on Sunday? None other than the tough guy himself, boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather, Jr!

 

On his official Twitter account, Mayweather wrote “My thoughts and prayers are with everyone in the Philippines” and included a link to a CNN article on the super typhoon Yolanda’s death toll. This is newsy as every Filipino can recall how this boxing icon has taken potshots at Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao too many times in the past. Being a hero in the country, Filipinos have taken these jabs offensively.

 

But Mayweather wasn’t the only international sports icon to send out his thoughts to Yolanda victims. In fact, he wasn’t the first as Miami Heat’s superstar player Dwyane Wade took to Facebook his thoughts for his Asian fans just before Yolanda hit Leyte. His message read: “stay safe as Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda’s international code name) approaches. You are in my thoughts and prayers!” A similar message was also posted on his account in August for the victims of Typhoon Maring.

 

Wade’s half-Filipino coach, Erik Spoelstra, also offered a message of support and was published on NBA’s official website. His message read: “On behalf of the Miami HEAT organization, we would like to extend our condolences to the victims of Super Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. We value the many fans that we have over there, and we will keep them in our thoughts and prayers.”

It is really sad that the Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao fight is no longer feasible over a piece of blood checking conflict. Still, there is no reason not to sit back and enjoy other good fights and games. If you cannot let go of Pacquiao’s March 13 fight night, then you got yourself a date. Pacquiao vs Cottey fight will be aired live from the Cowboy Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Or, if you happen to be a Mayweather fan, he will be dancing in the ring with Shane Mosley on either May 1 or 8 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

These two fighters are going to see each other in the ring soon. This might not just be the right time for them and they knew it that is why they are finding ways to relieve themselves. But whatever they do, they will surely meet and fight each other to let the world know who the better from the best is. As for me, I’m betting on Mayweather; but Pacquiao has gone a long way too. He will not let himself be defeated this time. Besides, this could have been the best time for Mayweather while Pacquiao is still ailing from his ear problems after the fight with Cotto. It could also been the best time for Pacquiao as he is still in the tip condition.

Anyway, it doesn’t matter who they fight this first or second quarter of the year for as long as they save the best for last. They have to both win their upcoming fights so they will still be the best fighters to match before the year is over. Let us just hope that these two will not have conflicts over what– hotel reservations maybe –in the next fight plans so they can finally test their strengths and powers over each other.

After snagging his 7th world title, Manny Pacquiao is still unsure of his welterweight belt until reigning champ Floyd Mayweather Jr hasn’t succumbs to his power. This is why, his promoter Bob Arum is in knee-deep negotiations with Mayweather’s camp. There are already leaking bits of information regarding the fight. The date, for instance, is now out. The fight, if it happens, will be in March 13, 2010. The venue will be at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. Still, there are still no solid decisions made.

Fast rising boxing champ Manny Pacquiao can only prove his true worth in the boxing history if he will become the first man to defeat the pretty boy of the ring, Floyd Mayweather Jr. The man has never been defeated in his career life. He have fought and defeated in a single match all those that Manny Pacquiao has also in his list. Most of these people were knocked out or technically knocked out. His last fight before finally retiring was a unanimous decision against Ricky Hatton.

Floyd Mayweather Jr has so much to pride himself about. He has never earned a defeat in his entire professional career. In fact, he was called the pretty boy in the ring because he was never hurt so bad in the ring. No blood, no bulges, no nothing! The guy is really awesome! I almost idolized this person if not for his mean and proud attitude. He was really cool in humiliating golden boy Oscar dela Hoya during their fight. Good thing he won the fight or else, he would have been the man-bitch of his time.

Now, it is time for the two best fighters in the world to meet in the ring and prove who’s who! I am not infected with Manny Pacquiao fever and I have a little admiration for Floyd Mayweather Jr. But whoever wins the fight, I will praise and add to my favorite sportsmen in this life.

Have you seen the clip during Manny Pacquiao’s thanksgiving mass? It seems that Jinkee Pacquiao is now getting affected with the Manny-Krista rumors. The clip shows Jinkee crying during the mass and when Manny tries to hold her, she moves away. Instead of clinging to his husband, she continued crying in the shoulder of her friend. So there is truth in the rumors after all?

It can be remembered that way back, Manny Pacquiao was once linked with another actress. Ara Mina, a sex icon in the Philippine showbiz was rumored to be his mistress. Not only that, she was even rumored to receive a house and lot from the boxing superstar. A car and some other expensive things were also reported to be sent as gift to the actress. In those days, Jinkee seemed to be unaffected. Or, is she acting out the composure?

There are many talks, videos, and pictures going out now. If the truth can be measured by these things, then the Manny-Krista affair is true. As people loving people we are, we just don’t want this family to be broken. Not now when they already have too much. They had been together in the worst times; it shouldn’t be broken by people who just want to ruin relationships built with strong foundation of love.

To Manny, who have been the champ and idol of the Filipino people; don’t ruin your name and reputation for an affair that is built in lust and fame. You are a good man, in these trying times, you have to choose the people who have been with you since the start when you are nothing and have nothing.

To Jinkee, who have mothered a brood of four in the foundation of love to her husband, don’t let your family be ruined by unworthy persons however famous she may be. You are still the wife and the love of your husband’s life. There are just some things that are difficult to fathom, especially when it comes to desire and lust. Hold on if you still think your family is worth it.

As promised, Manny Pacquiao brings home the bacon. The guy has now collected 7 world boxing titles, a first in the boxing history, after defeating the welterweight champ Miguel Cotto. Added to his six titles light flyweight, flyweight, bantamweight, super flyweight, featherweight, super featherweight, light welterweight, is the welterweight world belt.

The snag was not an easy one as the two fighters have given the best of themselves in the MGM grand arena. Victor Manny Pacquiao steps off with a bloody ear and the victim Miguel Cotto stripped with his belt.

Manny Pacquiao on Miguel Cotto:

Filipino boxing idol Manny Pacquiao admits that Miguel Cotto gave him a hard time. He might not be the first to hurt him bad on the ring but the guy is really strong and has a resistance you will admire from a boxing pro.

Miguel Cotto on Manny Pacquiao:

The warrior in the welterweight division have also praised Manny Pacquiao for his resistance and speed on the ring, which eventually, lead to his defeat. The man has respect for his defeater and has not disclosed his career plans in the future.

Everyone in the team Pacquiao team and the media men who were with the boxing champ in his bus were stunned to see that Pacquiao, for the first time, dozed off after the fight. Normally, he will be entertaining and making funny comments about his just finished fight. He will also allow immediate interviews. This time, it was different. The guy went to sleep. Everyone then conclude that the fight was really one of the most tormenting kind in his boxing career.

pacmanhattonDone with the Mexicans, Pacman now goes west. And who else would he want to fight but the next in line, Ricky Hatton. The man has great background. In his record, he lost only once and that is to the man who also first defeated the golden boy Dela Hoya—Floyd Mayweather. With Floyd retired, Hatton is the best opponent the Pacman can have. Hoorahh, a dream come true! Pacman is set to fight the kid from Russia on May 3, 2009! I am not a fan of any of the fighters but my mind wants the Russian win, although I hated him during his fight with Floyd.

I still could remember when he made his hand slip to hit the black man even during a break. That was the dirtiest tactic I ever seen in major boxing game! So my respect for the guy is a bit low but with Pacman as opponent, I would go for him. Not that I don’t like the ‘pound per pound’ boxer, it’s just that I’ve heard so much about him. Things that indicate the guy have become overconfident. Maybe it was fame or the money he won each fight. And I’m glad he did not win last years election. That move was clever!

But I would say the guy is a clean fighter. He really strives hard for every win. You won’t feel you lost any of the luxury time you spent in each of his game. And for that, I bow to him. I just hope he will go back to the same humbler Pacman I come to know when he was still not so famous.
