Pacquiao shines in defeat

Pacquaio flat on the floor

While most were expressing their disappointment on Manny Pacquiao’s loss to Mexican Juan Manuel Marquez (many even ridiculed him), Ace Esmeralda of Security Matters Magazine made this discerning note:

“The first person I saw who smiled after the knockout was Pacman. How he conducts himself now defines his true relationship with his new found faith. How we treat his defeat defines our own.”

Agree.

In defeat, Pacquiao showed his greatness. He offered no excuses. All he said was :” “I never expected that punch. He got me with a good shot. That’s boxing.Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose.”

Also, Mommy Dionisia, despite her initial hysterics blaming Manny’s new religion for the cause of the his defeat said something reassuring to millions of Pacquiao fans who are in a stateof shock. “Sa lahat ng kababayan, wag kayong mabigo, ganyan talaga ang buhay may panalo, may talo. Akong nanay, natanggap ko. Dapat matanggap niyong lahat mga fans ni Manny,” she said.

What’s galling is boxing promoter Bob Arum talking about a fifth fight, no doubt excited by the big bucks that, that the fight would bring in. “Why not? People love this action.” he said in the post-fight interview in Las Vegas.”This fight will go down in history as a ring classic. “

Pacquaio must still be dizzy because he said he was amenable to a fifth outing with Marquez.”I take a rest. After a few months, back to training and back to fight.”

Mommy Dionisia, upon learning that Arum was planning a fifth Pacquio-Marquez fight, for sure not yet satiated with having her son as their milking cow, wailed: “Hindi hayup ang anak ko. Tao siya.”

She should tell that to her son.

    From Spunky:
    Ito ang araw ng pagkatalo ni Pacquiao kay Marquez.Hanggang round 6 lang.
    Napansin ko ngayon kay Pacquiao na iba na ang ikinikilos niya ngayon!Kung noon palagi siyang nagdadasal sa Panginoon bago sya lumaban sa ring at iniisip niya ang panginoon bawat minuto palagi siyang nag sign of the cross dahil Roman Catholic siya noon, ngayon hindi ko na siya nakitang nag sign of the cross man lang, dahil siguro tinalikuran na niya ang nakagisnan niyang relihiyon at sumali na siya sa mga Born again.
    Nakakalungkot isipin na ang relihiyon kung saan siya sumikat at biniyayaan ng Panginoon at naging famous siya ay basta basta na lang niyang tinalikuran dahil sa paniniwalang nakausap daw niya ang panginoon sa kanyang panaginip kay siya sumanib at naging iba na ang relihiyon niya ngayon.
    Sana matauhan na si Pacquiao. Totoo naman na hindi nag ma matter sa relihiyon unless my tiwala ka sa Panginoon ngunit sa aking pananaw kay Pacquiao ay ginagamit lang niya ang pagiging maka diyos niya para sa kangyang pansariling kapakanan at upang mging kaakit-akit siya sa mga tao para sa pgsabak niya sa politika.
    Mukhang naiimpluwensyahan na si Pacquiao ng kasamaan!

    Sundin dapat ni Manny ang nanay Dionisia nya, masyado ng yumaman ang mga gumagamit sa kanya at opkors sya at pamilya. Baka sa susunod ay iba na ang kahinatnan nya.

    Time to win, time to lose.

    Time to continue, time to cease.

    Frank Cimatu’s FB status:

    I feel for Jinkee because you know she had botox and she wanted to cry/scream internally/rage against the Heavens/CBCP and the spectrum of emotions wouldn’t manifest on her stony face.

  5. Ellen - December 9, 2012 10:53 pm

    Yes, she looked ugly yesterday. She looked unkempt with that extension hair.

    Whether you like the man or not. He had already proven himself as one of the best pound for pound boxer in the world. It would be hard for any present boxers to emulate what Pacman has achieved. He will always be the people’s champ to his millions of fans win or loose, me included. ;)

  7. Mike - December 9, 2012 10:56 pm

    Yung bangs ni Jinkee and dahilan kaya daw natalo si Pacman. :P

    @spunky, hindi ko alam kung sino ang dios mo pero ang Dios ko, sabi niya sa John 3.3 – ‘Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.”’ .. si Juan, sabi niya sa John 1.12-13 – “12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— 13 children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.” sa palagay mo, sino ang may impluwensya ng kasamaan?

    Three reactions to your write-up:

    1) He is indeed gracious in winning or in losing, and that is an attribute that many gain while engaging in sports. And many do not. So he is indeed classy.

    2) He lost. There is no shine to lying unconscious on the canvas. As my young son tells me when he bests me in Angry Birds “You’re a loser”. Period.

    3) One must be wary of the Filipino penchant to accumulate pride based on what others are doing rather than what one accomplishes oneself. Associative pride. It’s needy.

    LUCKY PUNCH! – PACQUIAO, headline sa Abante Tonite. May nagsasabi ring overconfident si MP kaya na-lucky punch. Para sa akin, ang daming distractions para kay MP at aminin nating kulang ang kanyang paghahanda. Ito namang si Marquez, very determined and focused upang talunin si MP.

    Headline sa Abante Tonite: LUCKY PUNCH!- PACQUIAO
    Maaaring totoo yan dahil may nagsasabing overconfident si Manny lalo na’t alam nyang nakakalamang siya sa scorecards. Pero sa akin, hindi na talaga siya ang dating Pacman at sa dami ng distractions, kulang na ang kanyang training para magpahandaan nang husto ang kanyang laban. Sa kabilang dako, determined and focused si Marquez para talunin si Pacman and it was not just a lucky punch.

    Days before the fight, boxing trainers/experts and Freddie Roach are already voicing the unusual strength and bigger muscles displayed by a 39 year old, Marquez.

    Mike, sino pa? Hahaha!

  14. chi - December 10, 2012 5:50 am

    Hinahanap ko photo ng bangs ni Jinkee pero tinanggal na yata dahil yun ang dahilan, ng matingin sa kanya ang asawa ay hindi nakabawi ng tingin, nalihis ang mata from the kamao ni Marquez. :)

    Seriously, napatunayan na ni Pakyaw na he’s one of the best in the ring. Tigil na at baka hindi ka makabangon sa susunod, what is your yaman for?

  15. joeseg - December 10, 2012 9:38 am

    There’s a photo of the younger Pacquiao still struggling to have a place under the sun with this caption which I would like to quote: “The Pacman I choose to celebrate. When dreams had the density of hunger. When humility had the weight of honor. Before power–fortunes parlayed into politics; his wife wearing the mask of glamour; his mother strutting into the stage of caricature–preceded the fall. Many talk of the Manny-splendoured thing: his generosity, his godliness, his go-sing-like-no-one’s-listening ease. Yes, it was gobsmacking good while it lasted, but it would be lovely to see him rising again with his feet firmly rooted where his fundamentals were fairly easy enough to believe he was, indeed, one of us”….

    Alisin niya ang mga amuyong na demonyo sa tabi niya at mag stick sa boxing lang katulad ni Marquez. Puro siya celebrities party st pa interview sa iba ibang tv. Iyan ang nakuha niya na gusto laging center of attraction diya. Makikita mo ang ganda ng katawan ni marquez kesa kay pacman. Masyado siyang over confident sa sarili niya.
    Kasalanan ni Manny kung bakit siya natalo. Si Marquez ay iisa lang ang ginagawa kundi boxing at walang pa tv tv na interview at stick siya sa kanyang relihiyon.

  17. vonjovi2 - December 10, 2012 1:26 pm

    sino ba dapat sisihin dito sa pag katalo ni Manny? Walang iba kundi siya dahil pabaya siya at laging nasa TV para mag pa interview or di naka pokus sa pag boxing. Si Marquez ay boxing lang ang nasa isip.

  18. saxnviolins - December 10, 2012 11:02 pm

    Yung aking welcome back was premature. Let us see if the blog has actually recovered.

    Hindi pa ba nagbababang luksa ang madla? Si Manny naka-recover na.

    Manny is a true sportsman. But Marquez was also gracious in victory. He said, in the ring, “Thanks Manny. You are a great fighter.” He said it in English, not in Spanish, para maunawaan ni Manny.

    Yan na ba ang bagong sport? Ang extensions ni Jinkee?

    As always mother knows best. When bibs was still a young babe, she confessed in confidence that Mom was always buffering her to do this and do that and not to this and do that.u only piece of advice is Mom is always right even when she is damn Wrong. now bibs is a woman, made her way through with one of US Prestigious Universities and mom is her best friend. They still argue and I am having fun just on the sideline. About Time Manny give a time to Listen to His Mom. She is the one who brought him in this world…wasn’t she???

    Pasensiya na muna ha for the delay in the posting of your comments because all comments go to spam and I have to de-spam them to have them posted. Medyo sobrang busy with all the deadlines and Christmas parties. I was not able to open this blog whole day yesterday.

    Our administrator is still doing the VERA Files website. Madugo ang trabaho.Once he is through with VERA Files he will attend to this site. He said he will re-design this.

    Nami-miss ko na rin yung ating balitaktakan. Thanks for your patience.

  22. saxnviolins - December 12, 2012 4:51 am

    You could have just put up a new blog. Many IT guys I know say it is easier to construct than to repair.

  23. jdeleon5022 - December 12, 2012 11:41 pm

    Okay lang matalo si Pacman kung desisyon tulad ng kay Bradley, pero yong style ng pagkatalo kay Marquez, ang dami ng Pinoy na halos hindi makatulog sa pag-iisip at isa na ako doon. Sana kung gusto pa ni Manny magtuloy ng boxing, iwasan niya lahat ng kaniyang activities at mag focus ng husto sa boxing hanggat nasa training, saka na yang pag-arte sa harap ng kamera pagkatapos ng laban. Maraming Pinoy ang naaapektuhan ng masaklap niyang pagkatalo.
