Pacquiaos Latest Statement on His Previous Fight

After their third fight against Juan Manuel Marquez, which had resulted in a controversial win for the Pound-per-Pound King, Manny Pacquiao’s reign as the people’s champion is slowly coming to an end, according to many boxing experts. Pacquiao’s poor performance in the ring resulted in dismay among Pacquiao fans. This, along with his controversial win, Pacquiao’s ranking in the boxing industry had drastically dropped. According to latest Pacquiao news, his poor performance in his last fight had lost his ranking as the top boxer in Yahoo! Sports, though Pacquiao had put this aside. Pacquiao, however, had called for his fans by giving them a message of what he has to say about his performance against Juan Manuel Marquez. Pacquiao’s Side “Magpakatotoo ka…maging Filipino ka (Be true to yourself…be a Filipino).” Manny Pacquiao said this line himself to his Filipino critics, especially those who rooted for Mexican fighter Juan Manuel Marquez during their bout in Las Vegas which resulted in a controversial finish. But before lobbing this jab at his critics, the Sarangani lawmaker, speaking in Filipino perhaps to avoid being misinterpreted, thanked his countrymen who supported him in the hard-fought contest. “Salamat sa sambayanang Filipino sa pagsuporta. Sa awa ng Panginoon, nanalo tayo, (I thank the Filipino people for their support. With God’s mercy, we won),” he said at a press conference at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport. Pacquiao, who arrived Monday aboard a Philippine Airlines flight from California with a brief stopover in Guam, and his wife Jinkee were welcomed at the airport by their four children Jemuel, Michael, Princess and Queen Elizabeth, and friends including former Manila Mayor Lito Atienza and son Ali. His View-Point When Manny Pacquiao was probed about his performance, the pound-per-pound king had only to say that he was also dismayed on how he performed in the ring. He, however, concluded that “Ang paniwala ko, bago natapos yung 12 rounds ay lamang ako at panalo ako (I believed that before the 12 rounds were through, I was ahead and I won).” “‘Yung inisip ko na ibigay ko ‘yung magandang laban ay di ko nagawa (I was not able to make good my plan to give a good fight),” he added. According to latest news of Pacquiao, Pacquiao had also made this statement, that “Naintindihan natin na di sa lahat ng panahon ay pwede tayong manalo ng one-sided fight. Tsaka, di pwedeng lahat ng kalaban bubugbugin. May kamay din ‘yan. Dumating lang ‘yun pagkakataon na naging close ‘yun fight (We can understand that we cannot expect to win a one-sided fight all the time. Our opponents also have fists. It only happened that we had a close fight).” For more information visit to our site at http://www.inquirer.net/
