Pacquiao Is Bigger Than He Seems

Never again will I judge a boxer by his size...

The fist-fight of the year kicked off like a box-office thriller, the kind that misleads audiences to believe that the hero in the movie is faced with a taller, all-powerful force that just might win, whether the Filipinos can take it or not. But lo and behold, Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao, with hardly a scratch on his million dollar mug, has brought his opponent, Miguel Angel Cotto, and everyone else who gives a damn to his knees.

Pugilism reminds us of a thing or two. Enormity does not matter, and perfect practice does make perfect -- spanking new Welterweight Champion Pacquiao is legendary living proof.

Yes, I agree with you Kate 100%. Pacquiao has brought honor to our country like nobody else did before. His humility and dogged determination and preparations for all his fights has endeared him not only to Filipinos but to all people of the world. Mabuhay si Pacquiao. Mabuhay ang lahing Filipino. Thanks for your post. God bless you always.
