Pacquiao Done after final ?09 Showdown


PhilBoxing.com


Year 2010 schedule rests solely on how Manny Pacquiao fares in his second bid for a congressional seat.

That?s the plan (retirement?) as he prepares for his last bout before the year is out

Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Juan Manuel Marquez star at an MGM Las Vegas slot with the victor enjoying an edge over applicants drooling to slice some of Manny?s stash.

?It?s a hostile meeting between a lightweight (Marquez) and a welterweight (Mayweather) says Bert Sugar, adding that such match-up poses ?provisional road blocks to Manny?s stab at greatness.?

Sugar, whose competence as a ring historian is unmatched, wants the winner to bump heads with the hottest ticket this side of the Pacific ocean---Emmanuel Dapidran Pacquiao.

Is it ?Pretty Boy Floyd? or ?Dinamita Juan Ma? who?ll get the premium assignment?

?Not a lock,? advised Top Rank boss Bob Arum who prefers Miguel Cotto or Josua Clottey, pitted against the Filipino pride.

Cotto defends his 147 pound crown against Clottey on June 13 at New York?s Madison Square Garden.

It is a 12- round-go Manny will watch after accepting ?Fighter of the Year? honors from the Boxing Writer?s Association of America.


The author (L) and Pacquiao (R).

Citation 2 by the BWAA for Pacquiao?s extraordinary feats.

Manny?s hunt for an opponent can end with MSG announcing an October blockbuster provided all parties agree on key issues such as the main canker of promoters--- fight purse.

By the way, Sugar blew it big time when he picked Ricky Hatton to beat the Pinoy icon on that memorable May 2nd punch picnic.

The Big Apple expert admits he was dazzled by our hero?s electrifying win; ?Everything was right on target. I just can?t tell how amazed I am at the thoroughness of Pacman?s devastation of the Hitman.?

?He took out another fighter out of his weight class, coming after smashing a bigger Oscar de la Hoya.?

?Who?s next? Kletchsko??

?I hope we get the chance to meet him again someday---Manny Pacquiao---some fighter?

Bert Randolph Sugar---some historian.
