We’ve seen him took legends and soon-to-be legends apart. We’ve seen him shrug off all the controversies and distractions, and make his way to history every single time he’s given the opportunity. We’ve seen his growth, from the humble Blow by Blow days up to the pay-per-view cash cow that he is now.
Yet, people have the audacity to question Manny Pacquiao‘s greatness each time he prepares for a fight.
People say Miguel Cotto‘s going to beat him like he’s never been beaten before, boxing experts took his name down a notch to give way to Floyd Mayweather‘s return to the top of the pound-for-pound charts a few months back. And, to my dismay as I read the news, some people from his hometown of General Santos City actually placed their bets against him during yesterdays fight.
But after it was all said and done Saturday night (Sunday morning here) in Las Vegas, it was the Pacman who, not only prevailed, but also cemented his place in history. Seven world titles in seven weight classes. 10 straight victories for Manny Pacquiao. And people still had time to doubt how good Manny is in the ring.
Cheers to the Pacman! Who’s next?
