TEAM PACQUIAO, Getting Ready to RUMBLE


PhilBoxing.com




I mentioned in my previous article that I am saddened by the news at PACMAN’s camp regarding an unwelcome issue such as a misunderstanding during the time when the efforts of TEAM PACQUIAO should be channeled towards a common goal of beefing up the champ and stealing the WBO World Welterweight Belt from Miguel Cotto. Now I feel relieved because it seems the team has patched up their differences and is laying out a formidable fight plan to give the Puerto Rican opponent an upset, gain 7th world championship title for Manny Pacquiao and give the Filipino boxing fans around the world another reason to rejoice once again.

Baguio City, Philippines is a good training area. The altitude and the climate are ideal and the place is far from fans’ distraction so it can give the men the opportunity to focus on Manny’s training regimen. As soon as he will be back from promotional tour, I am sure Manny will be pushing himself to his limits and train rigidly because his opponent is also a great slugger. Any boxer cannot underestimate the man who has stopped Zab Judah, Shane Mosley, Paul Malignagi and the recent one where he, Miguel Cotto, retained his title via a split decision, Joshua Clottey. Their November 14 match dubbed “Firepower” will surely rake in huge attendance both inside the MGM Grand and at homes watching on HBO Pay-Per-View and through various media. Being a Filipino and a friend for Manny, I am confident that this match will surely bring another victory for Pacquiao. I am giving my 100% support for Manny and I am sure majority of boxing fans around the world are placing their bets on him too.

Ang aking kumpareng Manny Pacquiao ay nahaharap sa isa pang laban at ito ay hindi sa ibabaw ng ring. Sa isang interview na isinagawa kay Floyd Mayweather Sr., kanyang ipinahayag na si Manny ay may posibilibidad na gumagamit ng performance enhancing drugs o steroids kaya siya ay nagkaroon ng solidong pangangatawan at nakayang pabagsakin ang mga kalabang nasa higher weight classes.

Sa aking palagay ito ay isang malaking paninira. Hindi naman si Manny ang makakalaban ni Floyd Mayweather Jr. sa Sept. 20 pero siya ang nakakatikim ng isang matinding banat sapagkat siya ang nakikita ng ama na seryosong banta sa kasikatan ng anak magmula ng bumalik ito sa retirement. Si Manny Pacquiao na ang kinikilala ngayong Best Pound-for-Pound Boxer, isang karangalan na hinawakan ng batang Mayweather noong hindi pa ito nagretiro. Matatandaang ang amang Mayweather ay nagpahayag din noon na siya ay mas magaling na trainer kaysa kay Freddie Roach subalit ito ay napahiya sa pamamagitan ng sensational na pagtalo ni Manny sa kanyang inaalagaang boxer na si Hatton.

Marahil ito ay isa sa mga dahilan ng kanyang matinding pagkainis sa Filipinong kampeon. Magaling na boxer ang batang Mayweather. Malaki ang kanyang tsansa na talunin si Marquez sa nalalapit nilang laban subalit hindi tama na gumawa ng kahit na anong isyu na maaring ikasama ng isang boxer para lamang lumakas ang benta ng kanilang laban o para lamang maibalik ang kasikatan ng kanyang anak. Ang kasinungalingan na ipinupukol kay Manny ay hindi lamang insulto sa kanyang pagkatao ngunit isang malaking insulto din sa mga boxing fans na naniniwala sa kakayahan niya at sa mga marangal na manlalaro ng boksing.

Ang kanyang focus, determinasyon, kagalingan sa boksing, tiwala sa Diyos at sa inspirasyon na ibinibigay ng mga boxing fans ang siyang tanging dahilan ng sunod sunod na panalo ni Manny sa ibabaw ng ring at wala ng iba pa. Ang matinding pagsasanay tuwing may laban ang pangunahing dahilan ng solidong pangangatawan ng Pound-for-pound King ng boxing at hindi ang steroids. Ayon sa kay John Chavez ng The Boxing Truth.com, “Accusations of Pacquiao's Steroid Usage are Just Plain Idiotic.” Nawa ay tumahimik na ang nakakatandang Mayweather at ibaling ang kanyang atensyon sa pagpapalakas ng kanyang anak sapagkat si Juan Manuel Marquez, isa ring marangal na boksingero, ay may kakayahan na makapagbibigay sa kanila ng isang matinding “upset”.

Si Gerry Penalosa po, bumabati at nagpapasalamat sa lahat ng fans sa patuloy na pagsubaybay sa larong boksing. Huwag po sana kayong magsasawa. Hanggang sa susunod na balitaan. Maligayang araw sa inyong lahat.
