in last week many has been suprised on what Manny Pacquiao said of changing his promoter in his fight. My question is 1 Do you like Manny Pacquiao a "Kapuso" or a "Kapamilya" 2. Do you wish Manny Pacquiao to win? I would say neither... If the price is right! Well as a filipino i will pray for him to win as a support!! Go Manny!!!!

I don't even care if Manny is a Kapuso or a Kapamilya. The reason here is because you can watch his fight on cable and I really don't watch Manny's shows on the local channels. Manny should stick to boxing in my opinion and should never venture the world of politics nor showbiz. He fails as an actor, as a singer, and would be an epic failure as a leader.

I don't understand what's going on with manny Pacquiao's head. or is he being dictated by powerful people that in the end he forget that he has a contract? Or he simply can't understand the contract he signed. If the Filipino lawyer of Pacquiao did not know of that decision of pacquiao to go to the kapamilya channel, then it was probably pacquiao's own decision to change partners.

I don't think PACMAN attempt to change his promoter, it's only just a tv station that will broadcast his fight. I think there are other person behind that advise him to commit a wrong decision in able to earn more money. And I think that person does not read the policy and contract that pacman has signed from the other network. Pacman is just a puppet by this big investors. In other hand, I don't really care where Pacquiao wants to air his fight against Hatton, I just want them to broadcast the fight in much earlier time compare to the time that they usually broadcast boxing fight that is way too late. And one thing is to reduce the time of commercial in each rounds. Last thing, I want Manny Pacquiao wins the fight over Ricky Hatton. It's the pride of Philippines and let's support him for his victory.

as what other mylottes have said, manny isnt changing promoters. he just tried to go over the other network (ABS CBN) even though he is still tied up with GMA. I am not too happy with Manny's decision outside the ring. Nevertheless, when it comes to his boxing fights, I will still give my support to him. Hope that he wins the wight with Hatton.

He is not changing promoters, he's trying to switch networks actually but it's good for the law that he stayed with GMA (although I would love him to be at ABS CBN).. I adore Manny as a boxer.. That's it.. Coz I'm a fan of the sport since the Mike Tyson days..

I was happy when Manny Pacquiao announced that he will give the rights of airing his May 2 fight to ABS-CBN since I am a kapamilya, well most people in Mindanao preferred ABS-CBN over GMA, but two nights ago, after GMA officials visited Manny in his training camp in L.A the whole thing changed and I was sad. I don't know what transpired on their talk maybe GMA accused manny of breach of contract or whatever. Nevertheless I am praying Manny for his victory over Hatton and just watch the fight on DVD afterwards.

With regards to shifting networks I think he made the wrong move in doing so. I think he just made himself a little careless in dealing with his obligations from anyone of them that is ABS and GMA. He should have consulted his lawyers before doing anything about it. He made a wrong decision is making hastily statements that he would regret later on and recant his statement previously. Now that he is back to GMA he would make another statement blaming ABS in hastily airing his announcement too soon. Well I think ABS is just doing its obligation as a media practitioner and I guess he made approval to air it and ABS even said they have other video footage telling that he would stand by his word and during those days he did not ever said to stop the said footages. But when it comes to his real career in life I just hope that all this contrversies he made would not affect his performance. I just wish that he would be careful in making future decisions like this. Better consult always to persons that knows the real score before making personal announcement to the public. This is a lesson that he should learn because this happened to him with Arum promotion over the other one.

As for me, 1. I don't care what tv network manny is in as long as he will continue to win. 2. Absolutely i want him to win. So to all supporters.. Go Manny! Go Manny.. I'm praying this coming fight of manny will be very successful and fun to watch.
