Manny Pacquiao is the new WBC super featherweight title holder. According to him, “the business is over.” The fight that was four years in the making was awesome. It was a close call. I thought the best case scenario was a draw because I’ve always been bad with Math but hey, it’s another reason to celebrate again!
Pacman’s fight has always stopped the clock for the Filipinos. No rally, no traffic jam, almost zero crime rate, a ceasefire between the rebel groups and the armed forces. Celebrities flock to Vegas. Phenomenal. Even the politicians don’t mind looking like fools trying to raise whatever part of Manny’s body in the ring for photo op! And they cross party lines for that. God knows how much campaign money they earned from that bout. I’m sure it was more than enough to ensure a win since Juan Manuel’s Marquez’s great strategy and play made bets soar to unthinkable proportions.
Way to go, Pacman!
After this welcome respite from all the woes that life has to offer, we can get back to business. It’s only Pacman’s business with Marquez that’s over. Not ours. For now, let’s get ready to PARTY!
