Our Super Hero so to speak, has just renew his winning and send his army of adoring fans in cloud nine again. This, after earning his incredible 8th World Title in Arlington Las Vegas 3 Sundays ago. Don Manny "the Destroyer" Pacquiao no doubt is the Man!, the real Pride of Pinoys and the rightful heir to the throne of another boxing legend Mohammad Ali. Adding to our super Hero's bloody Collection, another Mexican Fighter was stripped of fame and glory, - the nearly paralyzed Antonio "Tornado" Margarito this time - after Pacman's mouthful of punches, so speedy and solid, landed w/o ado on all parts of the tall man's face, body and internal organs. News says, whilst Mexico's deglamourized gladiator is holidaying in the hospital for a complete make-over, ours is having a thanksgiving concert in Vegas, singing and partying there like a rockstar as if no eye-closing combat happened 2 gory days ago in the same US state.
For the love of a mother who fret too much, a posh car is said to be the great son's token, forget not his unwavering gift of charity to all those who queue before him. Money, it seems, is synonymous to Manny these days. Heck, even a gradeschooler knows it: the Lotto's grand prize is no match to the People Champ's one-time salary making him among of the top 10 of the Planet's richest athlete.
Come his next Fight, Let us all pray for our hero's safety.
