Boxing and Boxers / Pacquiao has shown signs of wear, tear
« on: August 23, 2013, 09:48:25 AM »
By NICK GIONGCO

While admitting that it would be very foolish to take Manny Pacquiao lightly, the trainer of Brandon Rios told the Mexican media that the Filipino has shown signs of wear and tear that past few fights and that his fighter has the edge in their Nov. 24 showdown in Macau.

“He doesn’t have the same strength,“ said Robert Garcia as he prepares to whip Rios into form for the biggest fight of his career that will take place at the CotaiArena. “Age, punishment in the ring (have slowed Pacquiao down). There are things that nobody can hide.“
Garcia also shrugged off observations that Rios will wound up like another of Garcia’s fighters: Antonio Margarito.
“Brandon is almost 10 years younger than Margarito. Pacquiao was still in his time (back when he beat Margarito on a lopsided decision in Nov. 2010),“ said Garcia, noting that unlike the plodding Margarito, “(Rios is) younger and eager.“
Garcia said that Margarito was at an extreme disadvantage when he faced Pacquiao in Dallas three years ago because he was forced to weigh in at 150 lbs and since Rios and Pacquiao will square off at welterweight (147 lbs), Rios will be at his peak form.
“Rios hits hard,“ said Rios, stressing that Pacquiao better be ready for some heavy pounding on his body.
Pacquiao, meanwhile, has started to work out a sweat in General Santos City under the guidance of his long-time friend Buboy Fernandez, who is the right-hand man of Freddie Roach in Team Pacquiao.
Roach won’t be seeing Pacquiao until the first week of October since the Hall of Fame trainer is busy preparing Miguel Cotto for his Oct. 6 ring return.
Pacquiao said those who have started to count him out are in for a big surprise.
“I am not done yet,“ said Pacquiao, who will be two weeks shy of his 35th birthday when he answers the bell against Rios.
Pacquiao’s last fight was a sixth-round knockout loss to Juan Manuel Marquez and he said he was in total control when he ran into the Mexican’s Hail Mary punch in the dying seconds of the sixth stanza.

Boxing and Boxers / Wakee: PACQUIAO HAS NO MORE MONEY
« on: August 23, 2013, 09:46:03 AM »
HOW much money does Manny Pacquiao have?

Zero, if boxing promoter and Pacquiao buddy Wakee Salud is to be believed. Interviewed by Sun.Star Superbalita Cebu sports reporter Erwin Lirazan yesterday, Salud said Pacquiao has been so generous with his friends and kin that he has unwittingly depleted his finances.

Lirazan came across a story on ESPN about Pacquiao's fight against Brandon Rios on Nov. 24 being motivated by money. The source of the story, American journalist Ted Lerner, had said that Pacquiao has lost the zeal to fight and is just boxing solely for money.

"After years of spending like there was no tomorrow, it appears that tomorrow has come, and Manny is in need of cash," Lerner said on ESPN.

And so Lirazan asked Salud about the ESPN story. Salud, in all candidness, or perhaps with some dramatic flair, replied, "Di lang kay nahurothurot, hurot gyud!"

So Pacquiao's money is not just "somewhat gone but totally gone." I'm not certain how privy Salud is to Pacquiao's finances but the two of them maintain a bromantic friendship. Salud has always been by the side of Pacquiao in and out of the ring. The two have taken the same path to vices and politics.

But whether Salud has become Bible-quoting like Pacquiao, Superbalita Cebu sports editor Jun Migallen has this to say of the disputable Cordova resident, "Wa man ko kabantay nga naay nausab."

According to therichest.com, Pacquiao has a net worth of $85 million, sourced from his fights and investments. Last year alone, he earned $67 million.

That's a lot of money. That's P3.7 billion in net worth, and P2.9 billion in earnings in 2012. How does one spend all of P2.9 billion in so short a time? My spending habits are not anywhere near Janet Napoles's, and I still ponder upon my own question.

Pacquiao is very generous with his money, Salud said. The People's Champ doles money to everyone; he can't say no to anyone who asks for money. And he does not keep track of where it goes.

Lerner, the journalist quoted on ESPN, said Pacquiao has been contributing generously to his new faith.

Not having money is not alien to Pacquiao. He is used to being penniless when he has no fight, "Hurot man gani ang iyang kwarta katong sige siya'g away, karon pa kaha nga usa ka tuig una siya moaway og balik," Salud said.

Plus, he had spent so much on his congressional campaign last May, Salud told Lirazan.

Salud, whose attempt to run for mayor in Cordova, Cebu got thwarted in the voter's registration phase, would have had his friend Pacquiao as his biggest campaign donor.

Penniless is relative. By Pacquiao's financial standards, having only $1 million is penniless. By our standards, having no money at all is penniless.

Pacquiao had lost in his last two fights, but the losses still earned him $67 million. He last fought in December, and it was by a heartbreaking knockout from Juan Manuel Marquez.

"Manny has clearly lost the zeal for boxing that he once had. Before he used to fight for the love of fighting and the money seemed secondary. Now he is obviously fighting for only one reason: money," Lerner said on ESPN.

Pacquiao is selling his mansion in Hancock Park, Los Angeles for $2.7 million. He bought it in 2009 for $2.17 million. Whether he needs the money or finds no use for it anymore is anyone's guess.

Whether Salud was being truthful or simply being dramatic about Pacquiao's finances, is for us to see in the coming months. Salud was with Pacquiao last Sunday when the congressman of Saranggani opened the MP Boxing Gym in Davao City.

Pacquiao may not have the cash to readily give to anyone who asks for it but he has his investments. It's probably just $1 million cash Manny Pacquiao has now.

General Topic / BUGAS CAMIA, PANDA SINAGULAN UG NFA
« on: August 14, 2013, 02:04:50 PM »
Hina-ot nga kahatagan kini ug pagtagad sa atong local nga pangagamhanan aron ma disiplina kining mga limbungan nga negosyante diha sa Justicor Building.

Dili kay sa maka-usa o makaduhang higayon ako nabiktima niini, ug labaw ng dili kay ako lang ang nakasinati ning ilang panglimbong.  Kon mopalit kita ug bugas diha, atong makita nga nakabutang Camia, Bukid Rice mao nga nipalit sab ko sa kantidad 40, 41, 42 per kilo, mao ni ila kasagaran nga presyo. Apang nahibulong ko kon ato ng lutu-on, diha na nato masinati nga sinagulan kini ug NFA.

Hinaot nga masumpo sa daling panahon kining ilang pagpanglimbong.

Nganong mahal man ang palitunon sa Jagna kompara sa ubang lungsod? Ilabina niini ang GASOLINA UG ISDA?  Basi sa akong obserbasyon kanunayng mahal gayod ang Gasolina sa Jagna ug dili mominus sa TWO TO THREE pesos matag litro. Kon ang presyo sa Tagbilaran 50.45 ang sa Jagna maanaa sa 52.75 or 53.25, ngano man?  Matod pa nila layo daw sa siyudad! Apan ngano ang Guindulman, Ubay, Talibon nga mas layo pa sa Jagna apan tupong man lang ang presyo niini sa Tagbilaran.  Ang tubag sab sa uban, gamay lang ang kompentensya! Tinuod ba?  Kon lungsod lang ang hisgutan mas daghan ug gasoline ang maong lungsod kompara sa uban lungsod, sama sa Valencia adunay lamang 2 duha ka gasoline station apan karon isa (1) nalang ang nag operate, apan nagpabiling ubos ang ilang presyo kompara sa Jagna.  Ang Valencia ug Dimiao tupong lang ang ilang presyo sa Tagbilaran mismo.

Ang Isda! Labihan ka mahal! Bisan subayon pa nato ang tanang lungsod mahal gayod ang Jagna!  Adunay untay mga panagatan nga mudonggo sa fish port apan a babagan kay luoy kuno ang mga gagmayng mga mga mangingisda.  Apan kaming mga pobring mamalitay mag-unsa man?

Hina-ot mahatagan kinig aksyon sa mga kadagku-an sa lungsod!  Hina-ot nga mo function na ang atong mga kagawad nga mopakita lang panahon tingkubra ug RATA UG SWELDO!

Boxing and Boxers / Mayweather says Pacquiao 'not one of the sharpest'
« on: March 02, 2012, 11:08:28 AM »
NEW YORK –  A trumpet blared a fanfare to introduce Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Miguel Cotto as fans at the Apollo Theater cheered the start of Tuesday's news conference to promote their May 5 fight in Las Vegas.

Still, there appeared to be far more interest in the fight that's not happening — a matchup between Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao. Mayweather made clear that whether they meet in the ring is about the money — breaking down the shares in what could be boxing's richest fight ever.

"Just by speaking to Pacquiao on the phone, I mean, he's not one of the sharpest knives in the drawer," Mayweather said. "He faces Floyd Mayweather, he's not getting 50-50. Not at all. No one is getting 50-50."

While Mayweather urged Pacquiao should "take the test," a reference to his demand for random drug testing, payout appears to be the real sore point between Mayweather on one side, and Pacquiao and Top Rank promoter Bob Arum on the other. Arum has said testing is not an issue.

"Bob Arum likes to match Top Rank fighters with Top Rank fights. He keeps all the money in house," Mayweather said.

This dispute has spilled into federal court. Pacquiao sued Mayweather for defamation in December 2009, alleging Mayweather falsely accused him of using performance-enhancing drugs. Pacquiao spent 12 hours in Las Vegas last week giving depositions in the case.

"If I offered him $30 million, he should be happy," Mayweather said. "If I offered him $30 million and I didn't give money on the back end, why should I? He's with Arum right now, and they're having problems. It's obvious he must not be getting money on the back end."

Mayweather says he's not ducking Pacquiao, who stopped Cotto in the 12th round of their November 2009 fight.

"If I'm scared and I'm a coward, why do you guys want to see me fight?" he said. "Do I want the Pacquiao fight? Absolutely. But it's going to be hard to make the fight because Arum is worried about getting money."

As boxing news conferences go, this was fairly tame. In the second of a series that began Monday in Puerto Rico and end Thursday in Los Angeles, Mayweather and Cotto praised each other and said they respected each other. Video projections proclaimed them "Ring Kings" and "Living Legends." They sat in tall chairs of red velvet with lions on the arm rests.

Mayweather was the snazzier, in white jeans, a black turtleneck sweater, sunglasses. There was bling on his left wrist, and the rapper 50 Cent was part of his onstage entourage. Cotto, who got the bigger cheers, was in a black suit, black shirt and striped tie.

Mayweather defended his Feb. 14 tweet, in which he said: "Jeremy Lin is a good player but all the hype is because he's Asian. Black players do what he does every night and don't get the same praise."

Mayweather said most of the focus was on the second sentence and the first was largely ignored.

"Do I regret what I said? Absolutely not. I stand by what I said, and I meant what I said," Mayweather said.

Cotto, who has stopped all three of his opponents since losing a welterweight title fight to Pacquiao, thinks the 154-pound weight limit will favor him over Mayweather, who has boxed at lighter classes.

"Power is going to be on my side," Cotto said.

The fight, for the WBA super welterweight title, will take place in Las Vegas and will be televised by HBO pay-per-view. HBO plans a four-episode series leading up to the bout, with the first part to air April 14.

Mayweather is to begin a 90-day jail sentence on June 1 stemming from a domestic violence case.

Boxing and Boxers / PACMAN IS SCARED OF FLOYD
« on: March 02, 2012, 11:04:13 AM »
Floyd Mayweather Sr., the father and former trainer of WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (42-0, 26KOs), spoke to BoxingScene.com about his son's upcoming fight with WBA junior middleweight king Miguel Cotto (37-0, 32KOs), which takes place on May 5th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Cotto refused to accept Manny Pacquiao's demand for a "welterweight rematch" on June 9. Pacquiao demanded a contract weight of 147, while Cotto would not go a pound under 150-pounds. With Mayweather willing to face Cotto at the full junior middleweight limit of 154, it was easy for the Puerto Rican superstar to embrace the alternative direction. Floyd Sr. doesn't expect a mismatch, but he does expect his son to beat Cotto - and he doesn't believe the weight will be a factor. "I think it's going to be a good fight. I don't think the weight is going to be an issue [for Mayweather]. You see Pacquiao is a small guy, so he's going to try to get [Cotto] to come down as much as possible. In terms of skill, I have to go with my son to beat Cotto, but anything can happen in that fight. Here is the thing about Pacquiao, he's scared. Cotto is not. That whole thing, with [Floyd Jr. rejecting] the 50-50 [revenue split], was just their excuse to avoid the fight. Pacquiao knows....the day he fights Floyd is the day his career is over. Once he takes the test, he will be put to rest," Mayweather Sr. told BoxingScene.com
