PACQUIAO not only for BOXING?

Manny Pacquiao, is not only a boxing icon in the Philippines. He is more than anybody could think of. In the Philippines, he is said to be a hero. Everytime he had a battle, there is no crime that is reported in any of the police station. But in my opinion why there is no single crime (that is) reported, because both the policemen and the threatmen are watching boxing or merely the policemen are busy watching the fight that they neglect their duty. Funny is it? But in little barrios (towns) this happens and this is true. Manny's winning in every fight, made him more richer, that he could even build three (3) mansions in the same time(with my own estimation) or maybe more. With lots of money, we could have power with it, that he ran to serve the government, but he had lost despite of his money and influences and now he is looking for an opportunity to have the sit again for the election in 2010. I hope that politicians will not use him, his influence nor his money. For, I believe that with all the people that surrounds him there are only few who are true. Most of them are like crabs friendly at first but at the end, they would have the tendency to pull him down. I hope he would be wise enough, and give himself distances with the people who may seem good but in truth are evils. Well, Pacquiao has many charities and I am glad that he had the good heart of sharing.

I really hope too! politics might change his good heart! Many politician though have good intentions but at the end they, tend to give in to temptation. I must say that he, for sure will not get involve with corruption because he is a millionaire even a billionaire! But he might fall in some sort of loving power at the same time. Which I fear a lot and that will change his whole image as a hero, with good heart, religious and a sport in all of his battles!

Yeah that's great no crimes.. H e is the National Fist of the Philippines, the one bringing Him down is the politics and the politicians who always encouraging Him to run who knows that manny will not win, they only after the money of manny. Politics will damage His good image and the politician around Him specially the self proclaimed hero of the North the gambling lord singson, and also gambling, manny is also a gambler no matter how much money He bit for as He has more Money, soon He will be likely the same with the other boxer in the past who was almost lost everything because they do not know how to control their vices..

I agree! And that's exactly what I am afraid of! I hope he will use his head now! Really those people who surrounds him are fake! I mean, they are only at his side now because of his popularity and money. I wonder if Manny hadn't won, I bet no one will be at his side except for his own family. hmmmm..

When someone brought honor to your country because of an exemplary performance to a field of endeavor, you can call him a hero. But i do not think pacquiao is a hero and pacquiao is not only for boxing. You must admit that whenever you already have lots of money, you can always do what you want provided that it is not beyond the limits of law. Whatever you say, Manny cannot be alienated with boxing and even if he is running for a seat in the congress, he is always associated with boxing.
