Pacquiao on the floor as Marquez looks on

Marquez KOs Pacquiao! That punch could very well be "the" punch of the year! Based on the judges' scoring, Pacquiao was ahead of Marquez in landing punches. However, close to the end of the 6th round, Pacquiao missed a right-hand punch which became Marquez's opening to land a solid wallop on Pacquiao's jaw. It was lights out for the Pinoy boxer amidst the roar of the pro-Marquez camp. The Filipinos were stunned! The undefeated champ was out cold. Manny Pacquiao lost!

There were Filipinos who made fun of Pacquiao's "planking" pose as he laid unconscious on the ring's floor. There were Filipinos who attributed Pacquiao's lost to his renewed relationship with Christ (thus Manny's doing away with his rosary and gesturing the sign of the cross). There were Filipinos who were angered by Pacquiao's lost as they themselves probably lost money on their bet.

How short is a Pinoy's memory? Very short. Have you (yes you!) forgotten the glory and honor that Manny Pacquiao brought to the Philippines? Have you forgotten the humanitarian deeds that Pacquiao has been doing? True, Manny is not perfect. He has erred countless times, just like you and me.  But he has been justified by Christ's death and is well on the path mandated  by God. 

 I am not a fan of Manny Pacquiao  in the strictest sense but I do respect and admire him,  more so when I read his biography. Who amongst you have rose from the slums of Sarangani and went on to be an 8-division world champion and the second highest paid athlete? Not me! Not you! How dare anyone who condemns Pacquiao for committing himself to Christ! I have news for you and your bigoted opinions. God has a perfect plan for Manny Pacquiao. If Pacquaio continues his journey with Christ, He will lead the way for Manny Pacquiao. God bless you Manny!
