Bring it on!

Filipino champ Manny Pacquiao gave the world a lesson on BOXING 101 as he outclassed the much bigger and more aggressive Mexican boxer Margarito in last Sunday's welter weight title bout. Once again, the world witnessed how a David can conquer a Goliath. The undisputed pound for pound king, holder now of eight world title division belts, simply motioned Margarito to Bring it on! and gave the world an entertainment they would talk about in the days to come. In other words, this tiny man forced the fight and gave the ticket holders their money;s worth!

Wow, so you are boxing fan. I don't watch too much of boxing myself, and I guess that must be a heck of match that night. Well, good luck with the Filipino boxer then.

Not exactly a boxing fan. I like sports. And I like the way Pacquiao fights. He is so fast!

I do hope the ripples reach every needy Filipino. I think I will have to pray that Manny remembers his humble beginnings all the rest of his life.

Pacquiao earned his eighth belt via a unanimous decision. But it was an ultra heart stopping fight.

You're right. Pacman is really a fighter, a good one. He always make Filipino proud. Pacman always proves that faith and humbleness will lead someone into success. And this has been proven by him as always. He too always have a good and kind heart as a fighter that makes him loved by not only Filipinos but most people regardless of nationality. He deserves to be idolized.

Hi BB, did you know that after the bout with dela Hoya, Pacman had become the new handsome? I couldn't resist writing that!

Hi Eileenleyva!. I watch this match too. My dad is a huge fans of boxing he will not miss any match both locally and internationally thats broad casted in television. So every time there is boxing match we can not change the channel and sometimes watch it with him too. So this one I watch it too with him. I hear Manny is also senator in your country is thats true.

I hope you and your dad enjoyed the fight, as we did here in the Philippines. Manny Pacquiao is the duly elected congressman of Saraggani, a developing city South of the Philippines. He studied a course in Political Science so that no one would say he is not fit for legislation. So far, he had brought opposing parties together, so they could talk about legit matters...

That's a classic David versus Goliath fight. The difference is, David has been beating Goliath since round one.

Did you see how the tiny David evaded the arrogant Goliath, but every time he did so, he would leave punches on the face first? The sling shots were direct hits...

I thought it was a mismatch at first because Margarito always had trouble with Southpaws like Manny. It was harder for Margarito also because he got to lose weight before the match whereas Manny needs to gain some. I heard Margarito had broken bones.

It was a mismatch for Pacquiao, height-wise, weight-wise, and reach-wise. Pacquiao was simply and undeniably a great boxer, that is why he prevailed.

It was really a great fight and a great honor to all the Filipino people! Again, Congratulations Congressman Manny Pacquiao! It's time to witness the Pacquiao - Mayweather match soon!

I don't think Mayweather is anywhere near Pacquiao's caliber. Mayweather could grow old forever agonizing that he did not live up to a great challenge. Pacquiao doesn't need a Mayweather fight at all.

Hi anNiTa, the Pacman admitted that the fight was tough. He had a formidable opponent. But knowing Pacquiao, forever humble and God-fearing, he would never demean nor belittle any fighter. He only has respect to anyone who comes up the boxing ring and face the challenge. He could have given Margarito a knock-out punch but that would not prove anything... The fight was over early on, but Pacman danced to the tune... he had to give a good fight without hurting his fellow boxer.

Hi Eileenleyva. I seen that on TV he is great. I wish him all the best. He seems like he will go far.

I was hoping that bout would be his last fight though. He is an old boxer now and he doesn't need more accolades...

Hi Eileenleyva. I thought this was someone else. I seen this fighter from some foreign country that was young he was starting to fight because of his family. And he had beaten many that wasn't in his weight size. I thought that was pretty good that he could beat these heavy weight boxers and him being a pretty small man.

Why not. He has enough money so that corruption would not be a temptation and a real heart for the Philippine people. I would not be surprised in the least if we saw him president in the years to come.
