Manny Pacquiao may spend time in jail with tax case.

Manny Pacquiao may spend time in jail with tax case.

Okay, I’ve been teasing Floyd Mayweather’s date with inmates for quite some time now, taking a jab at Floyd’s senseless insults on Filipino boxing champ and Saranggani congressman Manny Pacquiao. But it seems our local hero may face jail time too. Rozil Lozares, a regional director for the Bureau of Internal Revenues said that a [...]

Hype on Jeremy Lin is because he’s Asian - Floyd Mayweather

Hype on Jeremy Lin is because he’s Asian – Floyd Mayweather

Whether he’s in the ring, in his home and soon, inside jail, undefeated five-division world champion Floyd Mayweather is also loudmouth king. In the recent phenomonal rise of American-Taiwanese Jeremy Lin to basketball stardom, here’s what the olympic-style drug testing number one fan and endorser had to tweet last Monday afternoon. Jeremy Lin is a [...]

Mayweather will fight Cotto instead

Mayweather will fight Cotto instead

With all the hoopla immediately ensuing after the Pacquiao vs Marquez III, hopes were lit when negotiations started rolling again between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao. I thought the 50/50 split would seal a May 5 superfight between the Filipino and American. Then the lights slowly dimmed after Bob Arum expressed that May 5 [...]

Pacquaio’s possible 2012 opponents

Pacquaio’s possible 2012 opponents

Who’s eluding who? I don’t see Floyd Mayweather Jr. on Manny Pacquiao’s updated hit list for 2012. Superfight or no superfight, the 8-division champ always gives a good show, well almost. Top Rank CEO and Promoter Bob Arum will fly to the Philippines to meet up with the People’s champ to discuss possible matches for [...]

Pacquiao-Mayweather megafight to move in October?

Pacquiao-Mayweather megafight to move in October?

Following the Pacquiao-Marquez III fight, WBC world welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. has become more confident in himself, bolder and even louder that the Filipino cannot beat him. “He must’ve seen my fight against Marquez that’s why he’s not scared of me anymore,” scoffs Manny Pacquiao. The result between the Mexican and Filipino’s third installment [...]

Manny Pacquiao vs Floyd Mayweather Jr in May

Manny Pacquiao vs Floyd Mayweather Jr in May

Is this it? The two year wait, is it really over? Will Money snap at the Pacman bait after watching Pacquiao vs Marquez III, contemplating that in his comeback, he gave Marquez a boxing lesson in defense and offense whereas Pacquiao showcased a different, weak and unconvincing performance. I have given up hopes of this dream match until… “We are ready…if it [...]

Margarito: Cotto hits like a girl!

Margarito: Cotto hits like a girl!

Sore eye and sore loser is how I’ll describe Antonio Margarito after taking a serious beating from WBA light middleweight champ Miguel Cotto. The taller Mexican never had a chance against the smaller Puerto Rican in this grudge match. Like his moniker “El Tornado”, nowadays, Margarito is more like a loud windbag with more talk [...]

Pacquiao vs Marquez, Pacman’s brilliant strategy!

Pacquiao vs Marquez, Pacman’s brilliant strategy!

Undeniably Juan Manuel Marquez was brilliant and scary in the early rounds, the 38 year old had the strength of a horse in his legs and rabbit-like moves. He began hitting Manny Pacquiao straight in the face and at times tagging the body. His strategy was superb, his experience inside the ring for more than [...]
