Fresh insight on Pacquiao; new avenue to London

By Recah Trinidad
PhilBoxing.com
21 Oct 2011



HAVE our amateur boxing leaders adopted a new tack in their all-out drive to qualify as many fighters as possible for next year’s Olympics?

Three Thai boxers advanced to the London Games against only one by the Philippines in the last Baku World Boxing Championships.

Boxing expert Hermie Rivera, who has delivered two world champions for the Philippines, now wonders if the Amateur Boxing Association of the Philippines has made last-minute shifts in its drive to bag a medal or two in London.

**

“This is terrific, first time I had noticed a campaign of this sort,” Rivera emailed from his nest in Newark, California.

Hermie said that, at first, he could not believe what he had suspected. “But why not, they could be doing it Chairman Mao-style,” he explained a bit puzzled. It could be circuitous, more arduous and expensive, but if it was the only way left, why not?

**

Light flyweight Anthony Barriga advanced to the Olympics after losing to China’s Zou Shiming who eventually won the gold medal in Baku, in the process towing to London the losing Filipino fighter.

Top PH hope Rey Saludar failed to advance in the flyweight class after dropping a decisive bout to a lowly American who himself got crushed in the next round. There will be succeeding qualifiers where losing Filipino bets should not be promptly counted out, based on Barriga’s glad fate.

**

Of course, Barriga’s surprise entry was not in the main plan of the PH boxing team “But that could be as good as coming into the capital (of power) from the countryside, with very little fanfare,” Hermie suggested.

Was it not also equal to ‘lying down and bleeding a little, before rising again”? Maybe, Hermie said, sounding not too amused.

He instead requested for ABAP to also follow-up solid tips from the South that, in Cebu alone, there were a handful of very talented simonpures--a couple shone with the dazzling gifts of Floyd Mayweather Jr.--who preferred to stay away from the ABAP junior program.

Why?

“They have been alienated from the main source of talents in the area.” This would be confirmed by one boxing broadcaster, who works with the Penalosas, in a recent talent scouting sortie in Cebu.

**

WILL Manny Pacquiao end up running for President of the Philippines? It’s too early to say.

However, Gary Andrew Poole, multi-awarded writer based in Los Angeles, California, appeared ready to place a small bet on the Pacman going all the way for a shot at the presidency.

Poole, a previous Manila visitor who writes for Time, New York Times and Esquire Magazine, has in fact added a new chapter to his successful Pacman: Behind the Scenes with Manny Pacquiao.

The leather-bound edition, which sold hot and was picked by the Guardian among the best books of 2010, will be available in paperback starting Nov. 1. The bonus chapter zeroes in on Pacquiao’s political wallop—and the lack of it?

**

FILIPINO portrait artist Claire Malanyaon-Leuterio will hold an exhibit at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas in time for the Pacquiao-Marquez trilogy. Her publicist, veteran news correspondent Jun Velasco of Dagupan, said Ms Leuterio was confirmed as Pacquiao’s official artist during a recent meeting with the boxing icon at the Manila Hotel. The artist, Velasco said, chided “a certain Jun Aquino for stealing her title without any say-so from Pacquiao.”

Leuterio was honored recently by the House of Representatives. Velasco said Pangasinan Gov. Amado Espino has asked the artist to exhibit her works on Pacquiao and other world sporting greats like Marquez, Kobe Bryant, Floyd Mayweather, after she’s done with her Las Vegas show.
