Manny Pacquiao needs to be helped


PhilBoxing.com




Suddenly, it?s not easy saying nice things about Manny Pacquiao, superhero and former beloved premier warrior around the boxing world.

In another careless move, the eight-division world boxing title winner has shot his own foot. He wagged a middle finger at the gay community, calling those who engage in perverted sex?like males mating with males?worse than animals.

Pacquiao clearly tripped and next toppled over, readily reeling from a vicious barrage of hate comments and tweets.

Nike dumped him, while close to two million of his fans on Internet readily left.

* * *

Pacquiao was well on course for the bashing.

Truth is he had apologized and explained, although the situation continued to get worse (than animals) by the day.

Please hold it for a moment.

Should we just leave this famous countryman of ours flat down there, now that he has owned up to his own mistake?

* * *

Pacquiao had also apologized.

Anyway, requested by an online interviewer, this reporter has this to say:

?It was a reckless comment; Pacquiao is entitled to his own beliefs, but he doesn?t have a monopoly on morality.?

What about his status?

?The legacy stays, it is his nobility that threatens to be tarnished.?

* * *

At least, Pacquiao?s record heroism inside the boxing ring should he saved. His own legend must not be wasted, squandered and crushed by his damning statement and carelessness.

Let?s not allow future generations to remember Pacquiao as one great boxer who got clobbered in ignominy with his discrimination of fellow members of the human race.

Yes, now is the time to come to Pacquiao?s aid.

His handlers in the new Christian sect he has chosen to embrace could perhaps re-school and re-train him on the sacred virtues of true humility.

* * *

It?s also quite alarming how Pacquiao has wantonly allowed himself to be an open target of disparaging criticisms.

Has he not been told and taught about other people?s misfortune, like fellow humans who have been trapped in a strange biological cage they have not preferred?

Concerning his ring career, his latest fall has obviously re-opened a sorry window to Pacquiao?s notorious defensive incompetence.

* * *

He charged in mindless, digging blindly for a kill, all the while unaware he had opened himself wide open to a crushing.

Yes, there?s again the danger of Pacquiao falling into the same trap that Juan Marquez had snapped him dead with in 2012.

Let?s pray he would have a chance to win or survive in one piece.
