Postscript on a Punching Stat of the Mayweather-Pacquiao Fight

Time was, when boxing greats like Muhammad Ali show up for a match inside the boxing ring, one is guaranteed not just a sport but some kind of total entertainment. Boxing was called boxing because the boxers box.

Today, a new sport was started by Floyd Mayweather, and from the parlance of well respected boxing critics and analyzers, a new terminology has emerged. It is called defensing. It is a Mayweather invention, scientifically and statistically proven effective, wherein a fighter, when being punched, swaggers, hugs, scratches with unnecessary punches, and runs.

Thus the demise of a sport called boxing. Do you think that celebrities who flew in style. via private jets to Las Vegas, would ever purchase a boxing ticket again just to watch defensing. Nope. They won’t. These celebrities had been had by a scheming Mayweather Promotions who made sure that they collected their money. They played by hook and by crook, if the reports that even Manny Pacquiao‘s entourage was treated very ill, are true.

These very important people who watched the fight knew what they saw, even if the commentators were saying something much different from what was happening. It’s a brainwashing game.

And in the aftermath, the supposedly whiz of critics, like the father and son tandem, Recah and Chino Trinidad, exposed their envious vehemence of Manny Pacquiao by justifying with numbers. Or that what’s his name? Philip Guico?Tcheh. No different from those Las Vegas conspirators who attacked a seemingly lone Pacquiao from all angles: from a prejudiced referee, to biased judges, to unfair conditions. These sinister boxing aficionados could have given a spectacular bout, but they angered the viewers with boos. I am disgusted more with our own people vilifying our own People’s Champ. Talk about betrayal being a most grievous sin.

Las Vegas and Mayweather played with the minds of the children, by brainwashing them. making everyone believe Mayweather is a great defensive, scientific boxer. When Mayweather lies alone in bed at night, does he really believe he is great? Come on, stop deceiving yourself. No sinister scheme could make you a person great that you really want to be. And stay away from Bieber, he is so young and so repulsive.

At the end of the day, Manny Pacquiao, consoling words must be pouring in, and let me add some more to the litany: the greatness of a man comes from what he has done, not from what he ran away from.

Do not look at this tally. it is an added ploy to insult the already injured.

And a footnote to America: stop deceiving your people, especially your children. Doom looks like it is in the offing. Your people are going self-destruct. Because even with a simple game as boxing, you cannot come clean and true

Licensed To Drive

Spent two hot mornings @ LTO, Agora, San Juan. The land transportation office was filled with applicants, the long line that started way before the sun was up, shows a system still rotten. What could have been done in less than an hour was prolonged, because those who are in charge allow the pathetic system to persist, am sure, they do not want to clean up because they earn that way. In the meantime, the people’s time are wasted, and they endure the unhygienic toilets for drug testing, the smelly canal that leads to the office, vendors and smokers all contributing to polluting the small space where my daughter queued up for her driver’s license. And the Estradas/Ejercitos talk as if they had done so much for San Juan, so they would be running for posts again this coming election. Go to Agora and feel the ambience of Estrada country, you might want to ponder about your ballot come 13th of May.

Anyway, Tish is now licensed to drive. She had been pestering me for the longest time if she could drive, and I had been adamant, NO!, can’t allow her driving without a license. On the way back home, she slept in the car, maybe due to the fatigue from the hassle of applying for a license. When she woke up, I asked, You want to drive? She said No. Okay, I said, just asking, because You don’t wanna be accused of being licensed without driving. The old joke worked, she brought us safely home. 🙂
