In two days, the most-awaited bout between People’s Champ Manny Pacquiao and the undefeated Floyd Mayweather will be happening! Dubbed as the “fight of the century”, this, among all other previous fights of our “Pambansang Kamao” should not be missed. The Filipino nation is once again expected to be all in this together.
I’ve personally encountered Manny Pacquiao when he spearheaded the grand opening of the Hoops Dome in Lapu-Lapu City in 2011. He entertained his supporters by performing seven of his hit songs, the lyrics of one song he changed to suit his Cebuano audience. The thing that struck me during the performance was that Manny Pacquiao is just so simple. He does not move a lot on stage, he didn’t have any costume changes, he just sang from the heart. That moment made me realize that he is not just a good fighter, but a good man, a passionate and focused one, with a heart for his countrymen.
Here’s a video of mine taken during the event:
Anyway, what are your plans for the weekend? I know a lot of my friends are in Boracay for the annual Labor Day Weekend celebration in the island paradise. Meanwhile, I will be flying to Davao today for the Davao Food Appreciation Tour. But with mobile technology nowadays, nothing seems impossible.
