What It Takes To Get To Manny Pacquiao

By Timothy James,

When you live in Orange County California, but you need to get to the Philippines and see the champ for a business deal, to film him, or just to say hi, this is never an easy task for anyone.

The reason is the Champ is always on the move. I wrote an article some 6 months ago that I was happy Top Rank took on the task of managing and securing the endorsement contracts. The reason I felt this could be good was simply because of the strong relationship Bob Arum has with Manny Pacquiao. If anyone could bridge the gap of the two countries, plus keep up with the Pacman it would be Bob Arum and his Team.

I have stated long ago that I only want to run a website of the Champ. A website for the people. I figure all I have to do is follow him around and get footage. This is not only obtainable for me, but it is fun, because the Champ is always on the move and is a very exciting person to be around.

It is the goal of Mp8.ph to bring you the full life of the Champ- not just his boxing and his training, but for you to see what this Unique person is really like. The person that makes Manny Pacquiao the champion inside the ring and outside the ring. The Champion of the people.

This is what it takes to get to Manny. It is never easy. It is always finding out where he will be or where he is going. A lot of times you arrive a day late. He is just as quick outside the ring as he is in the ring.

Manny Pacquiao has given James Dayap and myself all access and his blessing to film his life 24/7/

We will be bringing you footage of the Pacman that you have never seen before. It is my goal that by the time we are done with this series you will understand the man better. You will not just see him as a boxer or a fighter, but you will understand his heart, his level of intelligence, his brilliance when it comes to business, and of course the love for his people, especially the people that continue to suffer on the streets. The people without hope. The people behind the reason Manny Pacquiao steps into the ring and fuels his passion to bring them hope.

This is not a one in a life time boxer. This is a once in a lifetime person.

@ Lanski2000 from Tim- I really do not know what you or anyone else is speaking about reporting only the truth. I have only reported the truth. I made one official statement that Koncz was NOT fired. I then posted a press release that was not written by me- it was written by Vision Quest. It was a Press Release that Manny Pacquiao signed off on and I was told to publish it. That being said- It never said Koncz was fired. It said he had less roles to do. I wrote one article that Koncz has been replaced as the Gate Keeper. He has. He has been replaced by a gal named Stephanie- Everything I have written has been factual and on point. Please let me know what you are referring to that I wrote that was NOT factual.
If I did I will retract it. Thank you Tim

It would be very exciting. Welcome back James.

Comment by Nes — July 31, 2011 @ 6:04 am

I agree with Robust, indeed it is a very exciting assignment. Be well and more power to you Tim.

So glad mp8 is back. Keep up the good work James! Don’t mind those people talking behind your back. In slang Pinoy lingo, we call them “inggiters”(envious people).Most of these people are “CRABS”, if you know what I mean.Keep your focus on the Champ & continue to give us some feedbacks through your writings and videos.God bless & stay safe wherever you are in the country.

you’re trying to tell everyone that what you’re doing is pro bono? that money has nothing to do with what you’re doing?

nice touching words Tim

“The people without hope. The people behind the reason Manny Pacquiao steps into the ring and fuels his passion”

Comment by true pinoy — July 31, 2011 @ 9:21 am

Nice video Tim..Keep up the good work.

Comment by goko — July 31, 2011 @ 9:37 am

Thats is well said.

But I’m skeptical on news, reports, articles that is serious or touchy. I know its hard to keep in touch with the man. Like the Konzc debucle. I suggest or prefer the source should come out from the man himself, not some reliable source or even Bob Arum himself. Everyone knows Arum is not realible, because his also getting it from reliable sources. At least get someone a video cam or video phone and for 30 secs. asked Pacquiao is he fired. Yes or No answer. Thats it.

I know this web site is new. Not to insult but take the example of Elie Sechback ESNEWS video reporting. Some of his videos are just less than minute, answers and comments came directly from the main source not from reliable sources. All sorts of boxers and promoters and regular people. The reason millions cling on his site. Unlike D’Source teaching Pinol about video reporting and all his got are mostly Donaire Jr.

Nice Job T. James I enjoyed watching your footage!

Comment by ivan — July 31, 2011 @ 10:01 am

keep on writing Tim,most boxing writers are felt jealous about you cause yuo’re site one of the most readable contents as far as i know.One more, try not to mention Manny Pinol it’s irritating in our ears.nobody’s likes him as a commentator.

Comment by Lanski2000 — July 31, 2011 @ 10:35 am

Ok Tim, my apology. But please keep it cool as long as you can. One thing I dislike when you said give thanks to BenT. I think you are wrong, or maybe Im wrong.. but the way I read his write ups, its all about “CONFUSION” refering to the Great Pacman. We know that you’re not a filipino, but at least have the feeling of not being one sided and point a finger to an innocent. Im not talking about you Tim, its all about BenT, well thanks for helping the Great Pacman in some loving ways.

MORE POWER TIM!
GODSPEED PACTEAM!!!

Hi James one thing I can say malaki ang tiwala sayo ni Manny ( Manny Trusted You So Much ) Take care of it.

Comment by RG — July 31, 2011 @ 12:05 pm

@Lanski2000, I’m with you about BenT. The first article I have read, I got frustrated that I stopped reading anything he wrote…maybe I was wrong but my first impression about him was not good at all. Since I have not read any of his article after that first one, maybe Tim is right about him.

Comment by pranzer — July 31, 2011 @ 12:06 pm

You are under the microscope among fans of Manny and you will be hailed or exposed for what you do in Manny’s realm. As of now you are a character that is taking shape in the drama that is unfolding. I hope that yours will lead to ” and they lived happily ever after” ending.

Comment by kurap — July 31, 2011 @ 3:26 pm

Tim, the reason why people thought that you were confirming Gov. Pinol’s report about Koncz’s sacking was because you DID state that Koncz was fired, and even stated why he deserved to be fired. Then, you revised your original article on the same day to emphasize that the report was not yet confirmed, but you failed to change the article’s title that proclaimed “Koncz has been fired!” or “Koncz is fired!”, which was a declarative statement.

I posted on that article that your title was misleading because although you wrote that it was not yet confirmed, your title suggested that it was a done deal. I also suggested to you to get a direct confirmation from Manny himself since you have access to him.

As Manny’s “official” website, please keep in mind that any article you write is perceived to also be official. Therefore, please refrain from injecting your personal opinion when you make an official report since it only serves to muddy the issue, as this incident exemplified.

Keep it up man. just do your job and I am one of those who are enjoying the scenes behind the curtain of the Pacman.

Comment by goko — July 31, 2011 @ 3:50 pm

The truth will still come out. Tim supposedly Manny Pacquiao insider. Question is does that make you a member of team Pacquiao? I doubt. Even Tim profess his here for the website. Let it may be.

Ben Thompson on the other hand is a well known insider of Mayweather. A Mayweather fanatic. Even he himself could not deter why the drug test if Floyd claims he can easily woop Mannt’s butt. Because he himself believes in Mayweatehr claims.

One thing for certain both Tim and Ben are Americans and they do have something in common. It could have been different for Tim if his Filipino. The reason Chinese are strong in numbers. No matter if its the Triad, communist, peasants and the rich. They got the same goals, they got something in common that unites them in all generations.

Time will tell the credibility and loyalty of Tim and Ben lies.

@Kurap- If you watch the video I did it states why I posted the title Koncz is fired- I said I did it to get people’s attention so they would read the article- The article was clear- It said “This is an Official Statement- He is NOT fired.” I do not know how clearer I could be. Next- I did write an article regarding Manny Pinol and the validity of his sources. I said this guy knows someone very high up and reliable and I stick to that statement. Manny Pinol has been about as close to right on the money as you can get. I am with MP everyday and Koncz everyday. I see what is happening. I do not write about it, but refer to Pinol’s detailing of what would happen. That is what is happening. Also I you will have to show me where I put my personal opinion on matters. You may think they are an opinion when they are fact. Please email me directly and send me articles that have opinion in them. I will probably tell you they are fact. That being said, I am done bashing Koncz for the most part. I accomplished what I needed to accomplish over the year. Pacquiao is now protected by a real company and he can now take advantage of all his hard work that he has done. He has a great honest team around him and he has a much brighter financial future because of it.

Comment by admin — July 31, 2011 @ 4:49 pm

@Lanski2000- in a lot of ways Ben is right about the confusion within Team Pac- and that has helped the Team get it together. You see for a long time MP just relied only on what Koncz told him. So Koncz would come to MP and say, “Mayweather is scared. Let’s fight Clottey” So MP believed him- when the truth is Mayweather just wanted the blood tests- MP agreed to the blood test a long time ago- yet that was not getting reported correctly. You heard MP in interviews saying he would do whatever his promoter wants him to do. Now that is not the case. Now he is doing what is best for his career and he has a qualified team that assesses what the issues are and fixes them. MP has a saying- “There is never a problem-There is Only A Solution” MP wants a more organized Team. Ben Thompson has brought our how disorganized MP’s peeps were around him and how MP is not making as much as he should. MP understands what Ben has said and he is now organizing and taking advantage of what he is entitled to. Things are going great for the Pacman right now- He is happier than I have ever seen him.

Comment by admin — July 31, 2011 @ 4:55 pm

@goko- I agree with everything you said- for the record Koncz is not fired. (but again- his duties have changed) I think the reason I do not interview the Pacman enough is there was a huge language barrier for years, but now he speaks and understands English very well. I have kind of gotten into a shell with not interviewing him. I need to break that shell and start. There is no excuse- I need to do it. The prob with me is I am always with him and there is never a good time. He is either busy slammed, with work, having a ton of fun with his friends, or finally relaxing. I hate to bug the guy you know. So many people are always pulling at him, so I like to let him enjoy whatever he is doing, but you are correct- If you do not hear it from the Pacman’s mouth don’t believe it.

Comment by Mark — July 31, 2011 @ 5:22 pm

Wcome back mp8 thanks Tim for all your updates and remember you can not please everyone and there is always people gonna do anything to jeopardize what you started,I guess they are envious of what you guys had accomplished.God Luck Team Pacquiao..

Comment by admin — July 31, 2011 @ 5:38 pm

@Mark- Thank you for the support. Haters are always louder than the people that relax and enjoy life. Alex Ariza and I had this conversation just the other day. Alex said, the site is taking a bashing- I said to him- If you count there is only like 20 people. Let’s go overboard and say there is 150 people. Well there was over 600,000 people from 191 countries that viewed the videos and his articles over the past view months. The people that love the site completely outweigh the haters. That being said- it always make a person feel good to hear some support. Thank you Mark for the compliment. We all appreciate it.

Comment by goko — July 31, 2011 @ 6:37 pm

Thanks for the compliment Tim… Not just the language, but also the distance not all understand. “Long distance communication”. Do you have a direct phone line with Manny? The Filipino media has this tactic for a long time. The US media does this too. Its called “ambush reporting”. You can’t always have a decent interview. Sat down and talk like the large broadcast network. You have to do what media men do. Start rolling the camera and ask the questions. Direct questioning. Your not in anyway being rude. I’m being rude myself. Media is like a 100m dash. Who ever gets the story first? Thats what all media reporters are competing. The first one on the scene, the first one to report. “Exclusive”. Thats the reason I believe D’Source was disrespectful to Pinol. Pinol was the first to report on Donaire Jr. and Top Rank. Instead of D’Source who eats and sleeps Nonito Donaire Jr. pound for pound. That just shows who is the amature in reporting.

Do what you do best for this website. Stay out from intrigues it will turn out as a soap opera for Filipinos. They like those things, thats why we/they never grow.
