It may be sad news to both boxing afficionados and plain spectators of the sport, that Ray “Boom Boom” Bautista lost his attempt to steal WBC World title against Juan Ponce de Leon but the Philippnes still bagged the title at the recently concluded World Boxing Cup. We still have a lot to be thankful for, Diosdado Gabi, Michael Domingo, AJ “Bazooka” Banal, Z Gorres (who brought home an IBF Intercontinental belt) and a new WBC World title by Gerry PeÑalosa closed the cup with a 5-1 lead to steal the reign from the Mexicans.
That was one great day for Filipinos as they would be bringing home $500,000 and a trophy (which Oscar dela Hoya promised to personally give to President Arroyo).
Manny Pacquaio. Na-appreciate ko talga ung support na ipinapakita niya everytime may laban ang mga Pinoy Boxers. Bakit hindi na lang kaya si Pacquaio ang ipadala natin sa ABu Sayyaf, noh? He seemed capable of unifying the Philippines. Haven’t you noticed, tuwing may laban si Pacquaio, walang tao/tambay sa kalsada, walang traffic at lalong hindi masikip sa mga malls? It only goes to say that everyone is extremely glued in to their tv sets to watch him fight.
Boom Boom Bautista. He did have a very damaging lost against de Leon, but he’s still young. Hello? Kahit si Pacquaio, may 3 talo na! I mean his defeat is definitely forgiveable (‘yong kalaban niya naman mukhang papatay ng tao and hello, baby face at babyng baby naman si Boom Boom compared to him, noh!), and I know, babawi naman siya next time. I still believe that he’s the next Manny Pacquaio. So cheer up boy, the journey is long! Makakakuha ka din ng WBC title, hintay hintay lang!
Gerry PeÑalosa in Kalabaw lang ang Tumatanda. Totoo naman, at heto nga may WBC world title na naman ang lolo, este ang kuya nating boxer. Nagulat din siya nung naka-KO siya, kami nga nagulat din, e! Nevertheless, you made the country proud again! I belive that we still haven’t seen the last of him dahil marami pang darating!
There’s a rainbow after the rain. Sunud-sunod na talo : Bobby Pacquaio, Mayol and Amonsot pero sunud sunod din naman ang panalo sa World Cup at eto nga defending champion tayo.!
Michael Aldeguer, my new celeb crush. Hay, so cute, crush ko talga siya! Ang hirap humanap ng picture niya! Kainis! Siya po ang anak ng manager ng ALA gym na si Tony Lopez Aldeguer. Kung nanonood kayo lagi ng laban ng ALA boys, siya ‘yong laging naka coat and tie na dark color sa kaliwa ng boxer!
