This guy sent Hatton kissing the canvass with a powerful punch and so with the ego of thousands of Britons who supported the champion. Hatton lost and Pacman received the belt of a champion. He brought honor to his country and makes himself richer by millions again. He is unstoppable in the ring and so with his political ambition.
As a welcome home gift, the COMELEC approved his political party. He is really determined to go go to Congress and be called Hon. Cong. Manny Pacquiao. He came home and no body could stop him. Not even the typhoon, for Pacman is mightier than Mr. Weatherman. As usual he is swarmed again by politicians like Lito Atienza and Chavit Singson. Yes Pacman does not only want to be called a great boxing champion but a politician who may be a champion of the masses. With that let us say Mabuhay (long live) to Pacman!
Pacman’s improved boxing skills shocked the world. But will he improve his skills as a politician? Right now local politicians already signified their intentions to join Pacman’s party. Yes this party could give an instantaneous knock out punch to their political rivals. But is Pacman aware that winning may not necessarily mean rightfully delivering the goods to his constituents? For what good does it make a boxer to win only to disappoint his constituents for undelivered goods and services? I hope Pacman may prove his critics wrong.
Now Pacman has landed and he had been interviewed by the news hungry media. There is no victory parade as a usual practice everytime he brought home a championship belt, the WHO prevailed for the safety of thousands of fans who’ll come to see and cheer their idol. No problem anyway for Pacman, it may soon come in another time. Social distancing however was not observed as the champion embrace, shake hands, and kiss people around who came to greet him.
What is important he does not talk about politics this time, he wants the entire country to be united and cherish his victory. After attending a Thanksgiving mass at the Black Nazarene Church in Quiapo, Manila Pacman thanked millions of his fans and supporter for their prayers. He is just happy as the entire nation is with his victory. But many of his critics are not happy with his outfit, while he looks macho with his hat he is not far also from portraying a gangster in the movie.
But whatever we say, Pacman is a hero who deserves a hero’s welcome. But wait, there is still Mayweather to contend with, will he seal another victory the second time arouny? And as Kim Atienza says, “ang buhay ay weather-weather lamang (life is just like a weather).
