Just a quick blabber. First of all, I’d like to congratulate Manny Pacquiao for once again pulling off another impressive victory, this time against Miguel Angel Cotto. As I’ve always practiced I placed my money on Manny’s opponent and naturally, I lost. It’s not that I don’t want Pacquiao to win, I just want to have some fun because nobody here in the Philippines wants to bet against Manny, I mean NOBODY.
With regards to the match, I think Manny really outboxed Cotto. He was moving really well around the ring and his punching was crisp and pricise. He hurt Cotto a couple of times early and i think that set the tone of the match. Towards the end of the match, Cotto was seen backpedalling from the stalking Pacquiao.
Pacquiao’s win against Cotto filled up the internet chatter with talks of Pacquiao-Mayweather. Personally, I’d like to see another match of Manny and Juan Manuel Marquez first. The first two fights of Pacquiao and Marquez both ended in unconvincing fashion. I’d like to see a third match just to settle everything once and for all. As for Mayweather, Pacquiao will never back down. As long as Mayweather agrees to fight Manny, it’s guaranteed that we’ll see it happen.
Presently, I don’t have any updates regarding Z Gorres’ condition. For those who are not aware, Z Gorres suffered a blot clot in his brain in his last fight when he was hit hard late in the last round. He was able to finish the round and win the match by points, but collapsed before he got out of the ring. He was rushed to the hospital and received medical attention.
From what I’ve read, Z’s health improved progressively which is a good thing, but he still needs to undergo some therapy on his way to full recovery. Let’s just all hope for best.
