BUBOY FERNANDEZ ISSUES PUBLIC APOLOGY FOR THE INCIDENT AT THE PACQUIAO-MARQUEZ IV


PhilBoxing.com



Fernandez.

Late this morning on my way to Houston to cover the Donaire-Arce fight, I received an urgent call from Manny Pacquiao’s best friend, trainer and confidant, Restituto “BuBoy” Fernandez.


Fernandez wanted my help in issuing a public apology to the photographer (Al Bello of Getty Images) involved at the incident that occurred after Mexico’s Juan Manuel Marquez brutally knocked out the Filipino boxing idol Manny Pacquiao with a single counter right hand during a fight at the MGM Grand that was seen live on HBO PPV.

The knocked out was sensational but scary. It took the ringside medical staff a few minutes to revived Pacquiao. Pacquiao was taken to the hospital for precautionary exams and CT scan which reportedly came out “negative.”

“Please help me tell the gentleman involved in the incident that I am deeply sorry for what happened,” Fernandez stated. “I did not mean any harm. My reaction was just a result of the heat of the moment,” he added.

Fernandez told this writer that he intentionally stayed behind in Los Angeles and did not accompany Pacquiao home last Wednesday because he was deeply bothered by the incident. “I decided to stay to clear the air before I left LA even spending money to re-book my flight back to Manila.”

“I just want to reach out to the guy and say I am truly sorry but I do not know how to reach him. It finally dawn to me that you can help me by putting up an article stating that I wanted to apologize.

“Please tell him I am truly sorry.

“I think I reacted that way because I was confused and did not know how to react after seeing for the first time my best friend and benefactor flat out on the canvas and not moving at all.

“You know how much he means to me as I owe him my life and everything I have. I will do anything to protect him.

“I wanted to get close to him and help but rules prevented me from doing so. I felt helpless and I my pent up emotions just build up. Perhaps that’s why I behaved like I did.

“I hope issuing a public apology through PhilBoxing will clear out the air. But if I need to write a formal letter I will do so. However you need to help me write that as I am not proficient in English.”
