It's a joyful day and a splendid CHRISTMAS SEASON for Filipinos because the one and only MANNY "PACMAN" PACQUIAO also known here in the Philippines as "Pambansang Kamao" did it again by beating Miguel Angel Cotto of Puerto Rico via a 12th round TKO of their boxing match dubbed as "FIRE POWER" at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada last weekend November 14, 2009. YUP!! It's a triumphant day indeed in the whole FILIPINO COMMUNITY!! CONGRATULATIONS KABAYAN MANNY PACQUIAO!! You made us PINOYS very proud indeed. The referee stopped the fight in the 55th second of the 12th and final round and PACMAN became the new Welterweight Champion of the World. Well, that was a good fight and it placed an exclamation point that our KABAYAN MANNY is really the Greatest Pound For Pound Boxer of the World. The entire nation was really praying hard that MANNY would win this fight and definitely the prayers were answered and of course MANNY did a great job doing his own thing on the ring smashing COTTO. Wheeew!! I just remembered that Shampoo Commercial of MANNY that emphasized on removing COTTO in the hair. He He He!! All have been said and done regarding the fight and so no need to elaborate on the specifics and let's just leave it to the boxing experts. One thing is certain "MANNY PACQUIAO is the GREATEST FIGHTER OF THE ERA" as his trainor FREDDIE ROACH have said on the post-fight conference. I made also two special blogposts on MANNY's victories over OSCAR DELA HOYA and RICKY HATTON before here on my little blog "The Doctor Is In" so just check it on the Label "SPORTS" if you havent read it yet. It's just sad that Z "The Dream"Gorres, another Filipino Champion who just won his bout recently against Luis Melendez, is in Critical Condition and is now in a Medically-Induced Coma. The whole FILIPINO community is praying for the recovery of Gorres. I guess with this PACMAN victory, a PACQUIAO- MAYWEATHER will be the real event come 2010 if it would push thru. Hmmmp!! That would definitely be another blockbuster since the crowd on the arena was chanting also "WE WANT FLOYD!!". After the fight, MANNY has humble words for himself which I greatly admire with this great Filipino Boxer. You made us all VERY PROUD TO BE FILIPINOS MANNY!! MABUHAY KA!! The Best Of The Greatest!!
