What more is there to say? Nothing. What more is left to do? Nothing. Who would have thought that there will be a fight for the fourth time between Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez? Did you happen to predict this? Not that I am complaining. But have you heard about the “sawa” factor? Anyway both boxers are looking as ripped and ready as ever when they had a weigh in last December 7, 2012.
 


The fight between the two great fighters will happen later this morning Pinas time ( Dec 9, Dec 8 in the US) live at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.  So stay tune for the live blog update!

I can exceed my limitations!

I can exceed my limitations! Man is the only creature that strives to surpass himself, and yearns for the impossible – Eric Hoffer

My ultimate favorite sports hero is the pride of every Filipino worldwide- Emmanuel “Manny” Dapidran Pacquiao. He was born on December 17, 1978 in General Santos City.

Manny Pacquiao had successfully exceeded his own athletic limitations by winning eight-division World Championships in which he won ten world titles in the field of boxing!  Manny Pacquiao is the first ever Filipino Boxer to win the Lineal Championship in four different weight classes. Beat that! He exceeded everyone’s expectation. Broke all records of all Filipino Boxers! For me, Manny Pacquaio is the greatest Filipino Boxer of all times.

He had come a long way from being a plastic bag vendor in Polomolok, South Cotabato, where he spent a year during his elementary days helping out his aunt.

Manny Pacquiao is an epitome of a Filipino who dream big and exceeded not only his own expectation but by that of everyone else. Manny Pacquiao’s success is tremendous that I doubt it, if any Filipino could follow in his footsteps for the next 100 years.

Manny Pacquiao’s workout are focused on the development of these three things:

  1. Speed
  2. Power
  3. Intelligence
As we all know, Manny always knocks out his opponent early in the rounds. But he had also showed the world that he can last up to the last round. He has an amazing stamina, strength skills and speed.

A little trivia: When I created this blog way back in 2009, would you believe that I posted not about my travels but the live streaming videos of my favorite boxer Manny Pacquiao’s fight?

I believe, that just like me, Manny Pacquiao also make sure that he has an odor protection in any sport/athletic/fitness activity he does be it boxing or basketball. Of course, he doesn’t want to be labeled as the one with a rotten smell. Geez!
 
I personally use safeguard, so my confidence in the product is really high. Remember, Safeguard Active won’t let bad hygiene distract you from exceeding your athletic limitations and in beating your personal best!

Having an active lifestyle, one should not forget about proper hygiene. You can do all physical sports and at the same time not letting bad hygiene stop you!

Interesting fitness tips and activities of Manny Pacquiao from boxing insider:

  • Warm up!
  • Stretch before and after each workout.
  • Keep your posture straight always.
  • Make sure you are doing each exercise correctly, using good form.
  • Begin low.  
  • As you gain strength, increase reps first.
  • Make sure you exercise all muscle groups equally.
  • Exercise larger muscles first, then smaller ones. The reason behind this is that larger muscles takes more energy to work, so you want to work them at the beginning, when you are all fresh and relax. 
  • Rest is essential. Strength training causes microtrauma to the muscles; healing this microtrauma is what builds muscle tissue and strength. It takes 24-48 hours after a workout for the healing to be complete, so it’s important to rest each muscle group for 24-48 hours between workouts. 
  • No pain. Period. Pain during a workout is a sign that you are using incorrect technique, that you have some prior injury or that you are overtraining. Pain after a workout is a sign of overtraining. It is normal to have some mild soreness for 24-48 hours after your first few workouts, but pain that is more severe, that persists past 24 hours or that continues as you get stronger suggests that you may have an overtraining injury.

CONTROVERSIAL CROWNING OF BRADLEY AS THE NEW WBO WELTERWEIGHT CHAMPION

CONTROVERSIAL CROWNING OF BRADLEY AS WBO WELTERWEIGHT CHAMPION
I bet each and everyone of you have heard about the CONTROVERSIAL CROWNING of
Timothy  Bradley as the 2012 WBO WELTERWEIGHT CHAMPION.
Timothy Bradley said to have defeated Manny Pacquiao in a 12-round boxing match last June 9, 2012 in MGM Grand Arena in Nevada, USA.
If you had watch the fight, it is noticeable that Manny Pacquiao seemed to dominate the fight against Timothy Bradley from the opening round until the middle round. While there were a few (3-4) rounds that seemed like that could be scored for Bradley, it seemed impossible by the time the final bell had sounded that Timothy Bradley had done nearly enough to take a decision but unfortunately that’s exactly what happened.
Manny Pacquiao’s hard straight left landed on Bradley’s face almost all night long from the early to middle rounds. 
Manny’s powerful blows were certainly more telling than Bradley’s much lighter shots. Beyond the quality and power of the shots landed, Pacquiao dominated in terms of actual punches landed and accuracy.
Manny Pacquiao landed better, bigger, monster punches that rocked Timothy Bradley. See Video!
Manny Pacquiao landed 253 out of 751 thrown whereas Bradley landed only 159 out of 839 thrown.
This is clearly the worst decision ever that the Nevada Athletic Commission had made. Keith Kizer, executive director of the Nevada Athletic Commission should overturn the judges decision and suspend the two judges who declared Bradley as the winner.
“I’ve never been as ashamed of the sport of boxing as I am tonight”-Bob Arum
“Can you believe that? Unbelievable, I went over to Bradley before the decision and he said, ‘I tried hard but I couldn’t beat the guy.”- Bob Arum
“He hurt me a couple of times with his left. He’s a beast.” – Timothy Bradley 
“I got my second wind in the sixth round I worked the angles, sticking and moving.” – Timothy Bradley  
“He never hurt me with his punches, most of them landed on my arms”-Pacquiao 
“I did my best but I guess my best wasn’t good enough.” – Manny Pacquiao
Mark November 10, 2012 on your calendar that will be the date of the rematch between Manny Pacquiao vs.Timothy Bradley.

So how come Manny Pacquiao lost his WBO World Welterweight title to Timothy Bradley by a split decision?

The result was highly criticized by celebrities and everyone else in social media be it in twitter or facebook. Top Rank CEO Bob Arum called out the judges saying they “didn’t know how to score.”

Here are some questions that runs through everyone’s brain:
How  the hell did the judges score the fight?
Jerry Roth is the only judge who scored the fight in favor of the People’s Champ, 115-113. Both CJ Ross and Duane Ford scored it 115-113 in favor of Desert Storm.

Everyone wants to see manny avenge this loss. They could cash in again with the rubber match should Manny win the 2nd fight.

So who really won?  The promoter Bob Arum, MGM, Manny Pacquiao with Guaranteed $26 Million, Bradley $5 Million

NEW WBO WELTERWEIGHT CHAMPION IS TIMOTHY BRADLEY

CONGRATULATIONS TIMOTHY BRADLEY
Winner by split decision.

I don’t know how the judges came up with the score. Considering Bradley did not land any solid punch on Manny Pacquiao.

Manny Pacquiao (54-3-2 38 KOs) is favored over Timothy Bradley (28-0 12 KOs) before the fight. The underdog Bradley did not land any solid punch on Manny Pacquiao. When the commentators said that Timothy Bradley won by split decision and only God know’s how, they suddenly stopped talking for a minute or two. They too, were overwhelm how in the world did the judges came up with their decisions.

As everybody knows, Timothy Bradley was the underdog at the start of the fight. The odds heavily favor the Pacman at -450 and plus +350 for Timothy Bradley. This means a $450 bet on Pacquiao will earn $100, while a $100 bet on Bradley will earn $350.

But then again maybe it was so boring already, when a boxer is undefeated for seven straight years. And no known boxer can match him in upcoming fights so they need to manipulate the results to level off the playing field. Do I smell a rematch?

 Here’s the CompuBox Numbers from abscbn:

 Manny lands 34% (253/751), Bradley lands 19% (159/839).

 Manny landed more in 10 of 12 rounds 

On a happy Note! Don’t despair dear readers Manny Pacquiao still wins in terms of PPV, endorsements, prize money, etc. He is the happiest loser in the block. And we are talking about money in million of dollars! Hurray! Panalo pa rin ang pinoy boxer natin!
