Daily Devotion: LEFT-OVERS

No Comments

After Jesus drove the unclean spirits out of the demoniac and into the swine, the townfolk begged Jesus to go away (Mk 5:17). The people preferred to live with a legion of demons rather than with the Lord. At least they could eat pork chops, bacon, and ham while being oppressed by demons.

Jesus left the district, as the people requested. However, by declining the request of the former demoniac to accompany Him, Jesus made sure that His truth, power, and love would stay in Continue reading “Daily Devotion: LEFT-OVERS” »

BAUTISTA GOES ‘BOOM BOOM’ KO’S BARRERA IN 3RD ROUND

No Comments

By Ronnie Nathanielsz
PhilBoxing.com

Featherweight Rey Bautista went “boom, boom” and silenced his critics with a smashing 3rd round knockout of cocky Alejandro “Zorrito” Barrera before a sell-out crowd at the Pacific Grand Ballroom of the Waterfront Hotel and Casino on Saturday night.

Bautista may have conceded the opening round to Barrera, a cousin of Mexican legend Marco Antonio Barrera who came out aggressively throwing left and right combinations. But the vastly improved fighter in every respect, kept his composure to work behind a stinging left jab that snapped the head of Barrera back time and time again.

Unlike in their first meeting which ended in a somewhat controversial fourth round TKO when Dr. Jose Unabia ruled that Barrera was Continue reading “BAUTISTA GOES ‘BOOM BOOM’ KO’S BARRERA IN 3RD ROUND” »

Manny Pacquiao called out by Bradley in post-fight interview

1 Comment

Rick Rockwell

It appears that Manny Pacquiao is the focus of many fighters looking for their big payday and big opportunity. At last night’s Boxing match, Timothy Bradley proved to be the better fighter between himself and Devon Alexander. However, it was after last night’s main event ended, that things actually got interesting. In the post-fight interview for Saturday night’s HBO main event, Bradley once again said he’d like to fight Pacquiao.

HBO’s Larry Merchant asked Bradley about his desires to face Manny and Bradley confirmed that his goal was to face the PacMan in the ring. Unfortunately, after watching that fight last night, I don’t see Bradley having much of a chance against Manny Pacquiao. In fact, Bradley needs to seriously concern himself with a Summer showdown against Continue reading “Manny Pacquiao called out by Bradley in post-fight interview” »

My choices will not be according to which fighters may be the most feasible for Pacquiao, or who could help him make the most money. I’m choosing the six fighters who could have the most positive impact on Continue reading “Underdog Boxing: Pacquiao’s final six opponents, if it were up to me” »

THE TWO GREATEST FIGHTERS OF OUR GENERATION ARE ONLY A HAND SHAKE AWAY FROM FIGHTING, BUT SOMEONE DOESN’T WANT THAT TO HAPPEN

2 Comments

Part 1 of 2

I will make a bold statement to the world:

If Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. sat down in a room together, they would come to terms on fighting. Both men would shake hands and agree to fight.

I can say this as a fan and also as a person that has a lot of insight into both camps. Manny Pacquiao thinks Floyd is scared to fight him. Floyd Mayweather Jr. thinks Manny Pacquiao is cheating. Actually those statement are not true.   Manny Pacquiao in his mind, knows Floyd Mayweather is scared to fight him. Floyd Mayweather in his mind, knows Manny Pacquiao is taking illegal substances to build strength, size, power and speed. Because the two of them are locked in these thought processes, they are not focusing on reality.

I am here to state to both sides of the fan box. The incredible fans of Floyd Mayweather Jr. and the incredible fans of Manny Pacquiao;

For the Record, to all the Manny Pacquiao Fans.. Floyd Mayweather Jr. in NOT scared to fight Manny Pacquiao.

For the record, to all the Floyd Mayweather Jr. fans; Manny Pacquiao is not or has not ever taken an illegal substance to boost his strength, size, power or speed.

I ask this from fans of both sides, before you come to your own conclusions- your own opinions of the truth; Please take a moment to step back from the situation and see if you’re in the middle of the storm that’s preventing this fight from happening.  A storm that was created by one man- a man that did not want this fight to happen from the beginning. A man that caused two sides to get distracted from what the other side really wanted.

I say this.  If you band together on your sides with the beliefs you have right now.  Believing that this fight is not happening because one fighter is cheating and the other is scared. I say this. You are contributing to this man’s plan of never seeing this fight happen.

Please stay with me as I take you on a journey of the truth.  When we are done with our journey, then please decide if you still have Continue reading “THE TWO GREATEST FIGHTERS OF OUR GENERATION ARE ONLY A HAND SHAKE AWAY FROM FIGHTING, BUT SOMEONE DOESN’T WANT THAT TO HAPPEN” »

Imagine that somebody not only steals your stuff, but confiscates it, that is, he legally “steals” your possessions by a power squeeze and then openly and blatantly keeps it for himself.

If that was not possible, society would expect you to try to exact revenge by whatever means possible. Instead, you publicly rejoice and praise God, saying: “Thank You, Jesus!

Why is Manny Pacquiao last to hear about switch from HBO to Showtime?

No Comments

Michael Marley

Boxing Examiner

Bob Arum’s got some explaining to do.

Not as to why the Sugar Shane Mosley-Manny Pacquiao May 7 PPV bout was given to Showtime.CBS or why HBO was unceremoniously dumped but as to why, when longtime TV reporter (ABS-CBN and Inquirer) Dyan Castillejo questioned Congressman Pacquiao about it, he said he was unaware of the big switcheroo.

Pacman may be a busy Congressman but he makes his real living in boxing and is the Pound for Pound king and the sport’s highest paid fighter.

But, according to veteran Pinoy boxing scribe Ronnie Nathanielsz, Pacman had to have the prime cable network change explained to him by agent Michael Koncz.

The question here is was Pacquiao the last to know, or the last to hear about the Continue reading “Why is Manny Pacquiao last to hear about switch from HBO to Showtime?” »

December 4, 1998 – Tonsuk College Ground, Phuttamonthon, Thailand

Fighting in hostile territory where most aspiring Filipino boxers are spoon fed for the Thai boxers who grab every advantage they could, seldom traveling to other countries to fight; Pacquiao showed his exceptional punching power in his frail body by knocking out the respected champion after being dominated in the early rounds.
