THE LORD OF THE RING

pac_kocotto
MANNY PACQUIAO has won his seventh title in seven weight divisions. With his latest victory, Pacquiao is expected to reclaim the “Most Popular Guy in the Philippines” title from Noynoy Aquino.

New Champ, New Fight
Minutes after Manny Pacquiao outclassed Puerto Rican champ Miguel Cotto, the crowd chanted, ‘We want Floyd! We want Floyd!” Pacquiao answered, “I want Chiongbian! I want Chiongbian!”

Manny Pacquiao won his bout against Miguel Cotto as a welterweight. His next “fight” will be in May 2010 where he’ll try his luck as a ‘lightweight.’

Miguel Cotto himself has hinted during the fight that he was willing to try politics soon. In fact, even before declaring his candidacy, he had tried to run several times.

pac_belts Pacman Fanatics
Dozens of Filipino politicians have joined the bandwagon and declared themselves members of Team Pacquiao… except for Sen. Chiz Escudero who refused to join any group and declared himself member of Team Pilipinas.

Pacquiao’s 7th Title
Manny Pacquiao became the first boxer to win seven world titles in seven different divisions. The only other Filipino to achieve an almost similar feat was Ronaldo Puno – operating for three different presidential bets and winning all three elections.

Pacquiao’s 7th Title II
Sen. Loren Legarda congratulated Manny Pacquiao for winning his seventh world title in seven weight divisions. Legarda said she could actually relate to Pacquiao because “2010 will mark my fourth candidacy under my fifth political party.”

pac_cot More Reactions
Sen. Manuel Villar Jr. congratulated Manny Pacquiao for his win saying, “You inspired our people to keep trying to make the impossible happen…” something that Villar himself hopes to duplicate in 2010.

In a text message to the Philippine Daily Inquirer, House Speaker Prospero Nograles said, “At least for one brief shining moment, we in the Philippines forgot all our problems.” Until Chavit Singson climbed into the ring.

Nacionalista Party’s Pia Cayetano said the win “brings hope to a people badly in need of inspiration.” More importantly, it brings hope to a presidential aspirant badly in need of a running mate.

Muntinlupa Rep. Ruffy Biazon described Manny’s feat as “One win by one man, but a victory for millions of Filipinos.” He then looked at the moon and smiled.

At press time though, presidential frontrunner Noynoy Aquino of the Liberal Party has not issued a statement on Manny Pacquiao’s victory… mainly because the draft of his congratulatory message has yet to be approved by the Pink Sisters.

D) Anong problema n’yo?!? Close silang dalawa eh, mahirap bang tanggapin ‘yun? Manigas kayo sa inggit!

pac-cotface Cotto’s Millions
Despite losing his welterweight title to Manny Pacquiao, Miguel Cotto still pocketed 7 million dollars – half of which will be spent to reconstruct his face.

pac-Jinkee Jinkee Was There
Pacquiao’s wife Jinkee, considers herself lucky because she was able to watch the fight at ringside. Starlet Krista Ranillo considers herself luckier because the night before the fight, she was at Manny’s bedside.

Big Punches
Manny Pacquiao landed 276 punches out of 560 attempts or 49 percent while Cotto connected on just 93 of 300 power punches thrown or 31 percent… five percent lower than Jinkee Pacquiao’s monthly average.

Mayweather Jr. Is Next?
Fans and supporters of Manny Pacquiao at the MGM Grand Garden Arena wanted him to beat Floyd Mayweather Jr. next. But fans and supporters of Jinkee Pacquiao are more excited to see her beat up Krista Ranillo first.

pac_roach Roach is the Best
When Pacquiao demolished Cotto, boxing analysts finally understood the genius of Freddie Roach. Now, if they could only understand what he’s saying.

Crime-Free RP
Authorities say the Philippines registered near-zero crime during the Pacquiao-Cotto fight. Robbers stayed home, NPA rebels and Army soldiers observed an undeclared truce, and the More Islamic Liberation Front delayed the kidnapping of another priest.

pac_stars Celebrities in Attendance
Spotted during the fight were Hollywood celebrities like Denzel Washington, Will Ferrell, Joe Pesci, Jeremy Piven, Mark Wahlberg, Mickey Rourke, P. Diddy, Paris Hilton, rapper/DJ Jermaine Dupri, Magic Johnson, Shane Mosley and several other prominent figures. For a brief moment, promoter Bob Arum considered playing the song, “Hindi Ka Nag-iisa.”

But an awkward thing happened before the fight began. When TV cameras focused on starlet Krista Ranillo, Manny started humming, ‘Sometimes When We Touch.’

Twelve Rounds
Friends who failed to watch the fight texted me and asked how long did the fight last. I replied: On radio, 12 rounds; on GMA-7, 12 years. [Punyetang mga commercials ‘yan!]

pac-Ladiva La Diva
La Diva – a trio of virtually unknown Filipino singers was applauded for their rendition of the Philippine National Anthem before the Pacquiao-Cotto bout. I heard they were paid in dollars. They’re now on their way back to the country to buy a career.

    1. Pass muna ata ‘ko this time sa survey! PH dagdagan mo naman choices, parang di enough na “Popular Guys” sila eh… weheheh

      GMA really went for the gold during the fight, way OTT ang commercials buti there’s live streaming. And one thing about Cotto, it’s how classy an opponent he was; bruised, bloody and all, he still managed to come up to Pacquiao, and congratulate him after the fight. 🙂

  1. Talagang punyeta ang mga commercials na yan sa delayed telecast ng GMA-7. Delayed na nga, pinahaba haba pa ng paulit ulit ng ads. Nakatulog ako in front of the teevee after the 4th round mga 2:30pm yata. By the time I woke up at around 4pm, Round 10 pa lang.

    I was keeping track of the fight simultaneously via radio, blow by blow account tweets and foreign blogs. Palpak ang live streaming na pirated (hehe). Or baka palpak lang si smartbro at only 10 Mbps.

    When I watched the delayed telecast na, for a while, I thought the Pacman has filed for a legal change of surname. Mas prominent pa kasi si RICOA sa trunks nya keysa apelyido nya.

    Re Cotto, thanks for teaching me a new dance step, the pa-atras atras jogging step ng isang talunan. He also personified a tomato from the beating he got. Na-moved ako when he embraced the Pacman after the fight. Parang cue sa pelikula yung sabay ng pag-flow ng blood sa mata nya parang luha.

    Boxing is brutal and bloody. Ah whatever, basta panalo ang pinoy. 🙂

  6. Gentleman talaga si Cotto. Kahit magang-maga at duguan yung dalawang mata niya, nakuha niya pang kindatan si Manny after the fight and congratulate him. He fought like a man, took defeat like a man, no excuses at all. A truly class act. Which is more than I can say for Floyd Gayweather (Sr. and Jr.) Magsama pa kayong dalawa, matinding bugbog din aabutin nyo kay Manny.

    Topdog and Senior60 meron lang akong request. Pwede bang mag-EB tayo, gusto ko lang makita kayong dalawa mag-besobeso, hehehe! At gusto ko lang masiguro na hindi ka nga bading, Senior60. Sa sobrang pagna-nasa mo kay Gibo, tingin ko ka-kosa ka ni Facifica Falayfay, hehehe!

Buti na lang hindi pinapasok ni Alex Ariza (Manny’s conditioning coach) sa dressing room. Ang kapal! Ang kupal!

Speaking is a great feat for him but he tries, the least we could do for a guy who is in so much pain but refuses to show it or be defeated by it to is give him the respect that he is due.

Pa-beauty na ling siya and hope for the best.

Being in that said festival, you need a lot of noise, publicity gimiks, etal… The producers riding on this movie, need to get back or have at least return back of their puhunan ika nga… having to have flop movie and not get back their investment is a big disaster on their part.

    Although I have this in mind, if ever this movie is indeed a flop, they can always send it to some Int’l Film Festival as an Indie Film category… who knows for whatever reason, it may even get an award…… o diba! parang ‘HIMALA’…
