“Don’t be surprised if this fight ends in the first round”
This was the bold prediction of Freddie Roach on the Pambansang Kamao and ertswhile congressman of Sarangani’s fight this coming Sunday. A bold prediction that could go either way depending on the result of the bout. If Manny, er, Rep. Manny wins, it will cement his legendary status in the sporting world. If he loses, then that would make Mexicans happy to say the least.
The fight is sure to make everything standstill in the country, the only time when even criminals take a break just to watch a boxing match. And even if Pacman will actually lose, he sure wins in the money game. From the prize berth to the endorsement deals which range from ice cream to deodorant, he will be laughing all the way to the bank long after he gets mauled in the ring.
And of course Mommy Dionisia (formerly known as Nanay Dionisia), will be there in Dallas praying the rosary and asking the almighty to favor his son. She will do this while clad in her skinny jeans with a designer bag in hand. Well, thats a different post altogether.
Till my next rant. Peace. Wala kang katulad Manny. 🙂
