I salute his determination and courage … from being poor and now enjoys the luxuries of life, I think the little children that share shelter in a house that he built inspire him each day. The difficulties that he went through also inspire him to do more. His family made him whole. The life of Manny Pacquiao are full of lessons that any one of us could take a look and be inspired to do the share of living and giving the best we can in life. My only wish is Manny to just be the same old self who for once in his life started simple and friendly. I think these traits are still with him and when feet are on the ground nothing could bring a person wrong. Congratulations to Manny, the champion that live about three hours by land from where I live.
I was cooking lunch when the fight begun and we were glued to the Super Radyo (The Kapuso Radio Station) that carried live the Pacquiao-Diaz Fight. The sportscasters made good in their reporting. Gauging at how Pacman did the works I told my husband Pacman will end it at the 9th round. And true enough the fight ended after round nine. I viewed the delayed telecast of the fight and what touches me most was when Diaz had his back flat on the floor in pain and Manny approached him and grasped his hand asking him (Diaz) to stand up. Kindness is the secret of living peacefully and I would likened those gestures of the two as expression of kindness for each other and just being sport in a fight that was tough.
The net already run stories of the boxing bout and news also worldwide declared him the champion ……… …..Manny Pacquiao knocked out David Diaz with just 36 seconds left in the ninth round of their 12-round bout, wresting the World Boxing Council lightweight title from the Mexican American.
