SPORTS SHORTS 232: THANK YOU FOR THE BOXING, MANNY PACQUIAO (PART IV/CONCLUSION)


PhilBoxing.com




Manny Pacquiao was rated for several years as the best active boxer in the world, pound for pound, by most sporting news and boxing websites, including ESPN, Sports Illustrated, Sporting Life, Yahoo! Sports, About.com, BoxRec and The Ring, beginning from his move to lightweight until his successive losses in 2012.

* * *

He is also the longest reigning top-ten active boxer on The Ring's pound for pound list from November 2003 to April 2016.

* * *

Some of his biggest fights and that earned him big purses are Oscar De La Hoya, Ricky Hatton, and Juan Manuel Marquez, but none was more significant than his bout against Floyd Mayweather. The mega match between the two very popular fighters was billed the "Fight of the Century."

* * *

The matchup was estimated to earn more than one billion dollars and left Pacquiao with a staggering one hundred and thirty million dollar purse.

* * *

The Filipino iconic fighter is said to be worth two hundred and twenty million dollars. His multiple sources of revenue have accumulated the boxer's fortune. Pacquiao is a senator and was a congressman for two terms. He was into singing and acting, and a professional basketball player and coach in addition to his endorsements.

* * *

Pacquiao was named "Fighter of the Decade" for the 2000s by the Boxing Writers Association of America (BWAA), World Boxing Council (WBC), and World Boxing Organization (WBO). In 2006, 2008, and 2009, he was awarded Ring magazine, ESPN and BWAA's Fighter of the Year, and won the Best Fighter ESPY Award in 2009 and 2011.

* * *

“I overflow with joy and gratitude,” said Pacquiao in his acceptance speech in New York of his Fighter of the Decade award. “I am thankful that like Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier and others I got into boxing."

* * *

“I confronted poverty by trusting God and dreaming big. I was convinced I could succeed in boxing. The boxing ring could be the breeding ground for my dreams," said the fighter who rose from rags to riches.

* * *

“Manny Pacquiao in Las Vegas is Frank Sinatra times a hundred,” Arum was quoted by Reuters. “Nobody else can bring in the highest of the high-rollers.”

* * *

According to Pulse Asia, Mayor Sara Duterte is the most preferred candidate for president with 20 percent of Filipinos expressing support for her during the survey period from September 6 to September 11, 2021.

* * *

The Davao City mayor was followed by former senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos with 15 percent, Manila City Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso with 13 percent, and Senator Manny Pacquiao with 12 percent.

* * *

After them were Senator Grace Poe who got 9 percent, Vice President Leni Robredo with 8 percent, and Senator Panfilo Lacson who had 6 percent.

* * *

Pacquiao said he was not disturbed by the results of the opinion poll showing him in fourth place among the presidential contenders, as he said: "The voices of the poor have not been heard."

* * *

Like in practically almost all places in the Philippines, Pacquiao fights are always fan-filled in gymnasiums, bars and restaurants and movie houses. Criminality is zero in most places in the country which means Filipinos are united in a PacMan match.

* * *

Will it be transmitted into votes for president this coming May 9, 2022? It remains to be seen. One thing is sure. His retirement is permanent when he wins as president.

* * *
