Hermie Rivera: Halo-halo, anyone?
By Emmanuel Rivera, RRT
Sat, 08 Feb 2014
Halo-halo (the icy Filipino desert) and boxing talk with my dad, Hermie Rivera, always warms my heart. “Would you like an electric fan with your halo-halo,”
Here’s my top five Hermie Rivera quotes even Manny Pacquiao find hilarious.
****Advisory: These quips seem zanier after 2 bottles of San Miguel beer. ****
- “Timothy Bradley’s chances of beating Manny Pacquiao is akin to Satan serving sherbet or ice cream in hell.”
(to Chris Robinson of Hustleboss.com)
- “Absolutely, Manny doesn’t mind being called the Honorable Idol.”
(to Philippine News)
- “Granted he knows how, Floyd Mayweather, Jr. will swim across the Pacific Ocean for $100 million to fight Pacquiao in Manila.”
(to Mike Marley of Examiner.com)
- “Manny ran into a loaded dump truck named Juan Manuel Marquez. That’s ancient history. But what was in it, Bob? Steroids?”
(to Top Rank chief Bob Arum who promptly told Mr. Rivera to SIT DOWN eliciting chuckles from the entire media at the MGM Grand).
- “I would love and hate to be the commentator of a featherweight (126 pound) dream bout between Pacquiao and Espinosa. It would be a toss-up. Even if you hold the fight in Manny’s Sarangani living room with Mommy Dionisia as the referee.”
(to Al S. Mendoza)
“And how many Filipino World Boxing Champions have you produced?”
(Hermie Rivera questioning my viewpoint that Manny Pacquiao will K.O. Floyd Mayweather, Jr.---with the “Halo-halo from Manila”, a sweet blend of a right jab, a left straight and a right hook.)
