Hail To King Pacman!

"This honor he brings to the country is a testament to a Filipino's unwavering spirit and resilience."

Hail to the king of the boxing world! Manny Pacquiao does it again! This historic win catapulted him to the pedestal where no man has ever reached before. He is the only boxer in history to win 7 world division titles! Any doubts if there's any, of his reign as the pound-for-pound king should be laid to rest!

Not even the great Oscar de la Hoya could achieve such a rare feat before his career was upended by no less the king himself the Pacman. Going into this historic bout, Miguel Cotto of Puerto Rico was in a mission to stop Pacquiao from sealing yet again another page of history. But destiny was on the side of Pacman as the bludgeoning of Cotto was an evidence of the Pacman's fury.

Lots of pundits have predicted that Cotto will come out the stronger of the two, as the welterweight division is the natural domain of Cotto. But Manny's speed and that famous powerful left punch, will later prove to be the deciding factor. In the end, the grit and determination of the Filipino prevailed.

Amidst the hype and celebration, there is however a somber side. Our compatriot Z Gorres also a boxer, is in a comatose state in the US. He also made us proud by winning his boxing match held a day before the Pacman's big day. One unfortunate punch from his Colombian opponent landed on Z's head in the dying seconds of the last round. But the Filipino went on to win the fight. My prayers are for Z Gorres for his early recovery.

This moment unarguably belongs to Pacman. And just like the rest of the boxing enthusiasts around the world, I am in a mood of celebration. This honor he brings to the country is a testament to a Filipino's unwavering spirit and resilience. More power to you Manny! Stay humble and wise in your decisions on your future endeavour. God bless you Manny Pacquiao!
