Will Manny Pacquiao lay down his rook to protect his queen, or forfeit?


Keith Terceira

MP8 has confirmed that Manny Pacquiao is in route to America and a meeting with Bob Arum is on his agenda.

With the WBO confirming what all the world witnessed, during the judging of the Pacquiao - Bradley fight on June 9th,  a review of five well sighted  judges, Manny once again shut-out Bradley by a margin of 5-0, affirming that a robbery took place in Las Vegas. Regrettably, the WBO has little in the way of recourse except to order a rematch, which may be the last thing that Manny Pacquiao honestly desires.

Manny did state after the WBO announced their verdict  that; ”My supporters shouldn’t worry. We’re going to get that title.”

The chances are that he will if he continues to box, whether it be from Bradley or someone who has better favor with the Las Vegas officials remains to be seen. Considering that Bob Arum just signed Jessie Vargas perhaps he is planning a little run with Bradley retaining the belt and boxing in house as Pacquiao has recently.

The rematch clause doesn’t necessarily mean that it will get exercised , specifically if it doesn’t make sense financially!

Manny Pacquiao grew up and mastered the art of the “Hustle” he became a master of the streets.Manny still needs to be fueled by that hustle- Manny went out until the early morning hours, hanging around the streets that most people would be afraid to drive on, places where you would not find any politician (alive) the inner city was Manny’s air and the people are his oxygen.

Manny Pacquaio knows exactly what happened on June 9th 2012.

And the more people smile at him and tell him how crazy those judges decisions were, how wrong it was, and how sorry they are this happened, the more these certain people look Manny in the eye and try to disguise the truth the more hairs will pop up on Manny’s neck, the more truth he will know. Pacquiao comes from a country that is known for its corruption, that is conditioned to political favoritism , and surprising events.

Will Manny be wondering in the back of his mind, “Did Arum really have anything to do with my loss?”

Does Arum have that power?

Manny has seen first hand what corruption looks like,smells like, how it is hidden in the corridors of government, where people’s misery is traded for gold and chess is played with the lives of the poor, if this fight was corrupted, Manny of all people will know! He has the advantage, the bishops pair, both God and Jesus, to Arum’s blunders recently.

If he believes Arum had ANYTHING to do with it, will Manny Pacquiao concede to some of Arum’s concerns and demands? Concede to lose a battle, but win the war.  The war being his legacy, something he has rightfully earned.

Lasker’s Rule applies when dealing with Top Rank, the obvious may not be the best move to prevent a back-rank mate by Bob.

Does Manny wonder, ponder the moves made on the board of his career, have quiescence errors abounded, or is there a swindle being run on Arum and Freddie’s desire to boot a close camp member Ariza!

Exchange your pawns, sacrifice the knights, surrender your bishops to protect the Queen, and risk exposing the King!

Ariza is confident that all is well between the two, but who knows what will transpire when Arum and Manny meet, will Ariza be a sacrifice, the acquiesce, to the bigger calculation.  Is our champion using algebraic notation to remember his positioning,  the forcing moves, being played by all involved, is his criticality assessment correct, or is he overly confident in his endgame!
It is my belief that Manny Pacquiao will forever go for the fool’s mate, in every fight,  trusting no one to control the tempo and leave the fight to a floobly.
He will use the power God gave him in a desperado,  to take it out of the judges hands, take the corruption factor out of the equation, but.. What if there is not a knock out?
Will Manny Pacquiao play chess with Arum and lay down his rook to protect his queen, or will he forfeit via retirement ?

STOP BEING A TOY FOR TOPRANK!! (maybe you could promote yourself(MP Promotions) just for that fight, just to make it HAPPEN). GO PAC! ALL OF THE PEOPLE and THE FANS!

“win like a champion, lose like a champion”. You are the true champion and you should continue to do whatever you love to do. You don’t need the title you just need the spirit of that sport and you already got it.

There are two corners in the life of Manny the Devils Corner and The GOD’s corner, Manny is undecided yet on where to go, on the Devils Corner there is Mr Bob Arum and the the other corner are all his fans and his real people, Bob arum is not Idiot, after he knows that Manny was getting his way for GOOD he come to construct and create another phenomenon to continue the flow faucet of Dollars to come out, and this is normal for a business man like him,he had choosen Bradley as his next pet to keep his business active…Frankly speaking in my case I am no longer interested and never dreamed that manny will again get that belt, Manny had given me a lot of belts that no one on this world can give, what he did in our life as fans and for the Pilipino people are an honor that no one ican give. and I thinks those are MORE THAN ENOUGH. Manny Go and retire and enjoy another kind of life there are still a lot of things out there that needs your attention, be contented of what you’ve got, every day’s that pass means days less of your life. your remaining life are more precious than the kind of life you are having now…

like i said in another article. Pacmans contract is up with top tank in 2013..he should leave top rank and promote himself like floyd does. I dont know if Arum had anything to do with manny losing this fight or not but he’s still a shady fuck and wouldn’t trust him

dear sir manny, i think this time na na review na laban nyo ni bradly, and you are declare a true winner! no need na for a re-match kasi ikaw na nga winner e, so… whats the point of re-match pa? kung sakali mag re-match at halimbawang natalo ka, di nawala yong vindication mo, sasabihin ng mga tao, talagang tama yong 2 judges, or kitam panalo talaga si bradly. winner ka na nga e!

There is only one fight that everybody want to see, not Marquez or Bradley, I think its time to leave Top Rank and make a deal with Floyd on the fight for the sake of Boxing and specially for the Fans.

Dont worry about the belt everybody knows who won the fight including WBO. You are (Manny) the peoples champion. Bradley his only Duane Ford and CJ Ross’s champion.

so many people said that the fight was fixed, so as to get more morney for a rematch. if you manny agreed to the rematch then i have my doubt that you’re part maybe part of the fixers, please prove me wrong by refusing this so called rematch.

Easy money! Fight for multimillion, baby!!! Then rematch for another multimillion!!! Screw all of you. That goes for u too Manny! Sit there and not contest your loss is stupidity! God is not into this kind of bullshit! People are! I’m really starting to think everybody was on the take including Manny! Easy loot!!! All of the sudden this guy is an angel…remember the bible, angels waged wars and destroyed! This whole injustice definately destroyed trust from the people. Go to hell!!!

Please ,concentrate on helping our poor fellowmen instead of further subjecting your brain to boxing trauma,Dont go for a rematch with Bradley.You already won..have reached the gold of your career.

I will ask the HOLY SPIRIT FOR YOUR GUIDANCE.Let us all prya filipinos for Manny’s wise decision to not fight anymore.

As far as I hav heard Manny has 1 fight left on his top rank contract so y doesn’t he just buy it out and then seal a fight with mayweather,this would make more sense than 2 c out his contract with the leech if a promoter,arum obviously is looking for a new slave in Bradley or who ever the new addition 2 top rank is,so leave top rank and fight Floyd wen he gets out of jail,forget Bradley,marquez and arum and top rank

Pacquiao no longer has the drive nor hungry to continue boxing…5 fights no K.O.s no knockdowns and easing up on opponents thats not Manny…call it his religious side…but boxing is your job and your K.O.s and knockdowns is what brought you fans and money. You, Manny Pacquiao, losing was probably best thing that has ever happened to you in 7 years, maybe its a wake up call. Also, when you retire, I give it 5-10years you’ll be broke and bankrupt…your stupidity and ignorance on dealing with your finance and how you let people “milk” you will be the end of you. Ask yourself where were “these” people when you werent making millions? When the money is all gone, these people will be no where to be found…And, by the way Tim Bradley is the new Mayweather…talks alot of shit, well your breath stinks and you need to brush you still have some shit in between your teeth…Bradley…you were a nobody before the pacquiao fight, you should be grateful, pacquiao gave you a chance, without pacquiao you would have never gotten 5million…all you do is belittle the man who gave you the opportunity of a lifetime…without pacquiao you’ll still just be another boxer trying to make it…a nobody! Thank the man, and do your shit talking inside the ring; you LOST accept it!
