The fight was said to be aired on channel 7 at 10am but it started before 2pm.I didnt know that i fall asleep,i almost missed it,when i opened my eyes,Ciara Sotto was already in the middle of singing our National Anthem,followed by Mexico's national anthem and afterwards,the United States' National anthem sung by a 14yr old Fil-Am Jasmine Villegas.Then the introduction of Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez.
4 years of waiting was worth the wait.Both boxers were in good shape.They both showed how tough they were,Marquez was a picture of a strong willed fighter,you can see from his moves that he really looked forward for this fight and had gone an extensive and powerful training.Manny Pacquiao on the other hand was all ready and determined to win the fight,llike Marquez he's been to a tough and long training too.He wanted to win the fight not only for himself,not only for his family but also for his fellow Filipinos,for his country.
The fight lasted until the 12th round,both of them already had a cut on their eyes but both of them showed how great a fighter they are and none of them are willing to surrender.But as we always say,"there can be only one".After the last round,nobody knew who won but the judges,Manny was busy exchanging hugs with Marquez when it was announced that he winby a split decision.
Once again,Manny Pacquiao made the Philippines and the Filipino people proud of him.Here in the Philippines,everybody was glued on their tv screen,it's another zero crime here.Everybody ended up happy and rejoicing.Pacman is now the new WBC Super Weatherweight Champion of the world.The first Asian who won 3 consecutive different titles.
Another pride of Filipinos.Congratulations and Mabuhay Manny Pacquiao!
God bless the Philippines!
