GET READY FOR A REALITY CHECK FIGHT FANS!
San Leandro, CA- Before I get assailed by both irate Pinoys and angry Blacks, what I am about to say has nothing to do with race or ethnicity. That being said, as I sit in Ricky’s Sports Theater in his bayside city San Leandro, CA, the #2 rated sportsbar in all of America, the Manny Pacquiao matchup with Floyd Mayweather is so often brought up that I, as both a writer and fan, I want to puke! The fight would have taken place last March had Pacquiao adhered to Mayweather’s demand of “random drug testing.” That is fact, not conjecture on the part of one of the few un-bought and paid for boxing scribes in the world today. As for Mayweather, I should begin this note with the fact that I feel he is a bit light in his testicular sack.
WHY IS MANNY GOOD FOR BOXING?
As a representative of the Philippines and an elected Congressman, Manny Pacquiao (53-3–2, 38 KOs) has brought both pride and dignity to a nation starved of both. Having met Pacquiao, this when he was staying in a downtown San Francisco hotel when he had but one jogging suit to his name, I am indeed proud of the man born in General Santos City, the Philippines. That being said, Pacquiao has shortcomings, as does every human being, but I don’t believe he is afraid per se of Floyd Mayweather as some have implied. Sitting in Ricky’s Sports Theater of San Leandro, CA, I talked with boxing fans who applaud the Pacman and his undefeated run since the first Erik Morales fight in 2005. There have been no close calls since, as Pacquiao has all but *itch slapped everybody put in front of him.
WHY MANNY IS SORT OF BAD FOR BOXING?
The ridiculous excuses put forth by Team Pacquiao, led by supreme bulls spitter and promoter Bob Arum, the actions put in motion by Arum are beyond appalling. First Manny was afraid of needles. But that lame ass claim was disproved by yours truly when I showed the world a photograph of Pacquiao getting a tattoo, all the while being prodded by needles and bleeding as well. In an interview that I will not publish until, only if and when ailing Emmy award winning broadcaster Nick Charles were to pass, Nick felt that if Pacquiao had nothing to hide, he “should have” submitted to the blood tests.
