Manny Pacquiao: The Fight of His Life

March 13, 2010

His bout against Joshua Clottey is bound to happen in less than 24 hours. I do hope that the People’s Champ defends his title successfully against the Ghanian challenger. The Cowboys stadium in Dallas, TX will be the ultimate stage for tomorrow’s showdown. It’ll be jam-packed with (Filipino) spectators for sure.

Critics have said that Pacquiao is too small for Clottey, that an upset is to be witnessed. But Pacman has proven otherwise, silencing critics for 7 times by reigning supreme in different weight divisions. So we’ll see.

Brushing aside tomorrow’s sporting spectacle, I would like to share an interesting read about Manny’s life outside the boxing ring. You’ll find out how he was introduced to the sport at age 11, his childhood struggles, his challenges as an up to his climb among the ranks as one of the greatest fighters ever. The debate whether he’ll kickstart his political career after the match or not is also discussed in this article. It’s amazing to know how a curious little boy from Gen. Santos city, driven by his determination to succeed, brought him under the limelight, and hailed as the Pound-for-Pound king.

Manny Pacquiao is living THE dream. He’s enjoying his status as a boxer/celebrity as witnessed in yesterday’s weigh-in ceremonies. Pacman had a grand rockstar-esque entrance (of course). But it had a rather relaxed atmosphere as both fighters had laughs and smiles on stage.  You can watch the official weigh-in below in case you missed it.

Enough talk. Let’s get ready to rumble!
