I really wanted to see the fight, but norwegian TV never airs boxing matches... He is so fast that his poor opponents aren't even able to see where his fists are coming from! He is disfiguring the faces of every person he fights ;D And what's Manny's number of knockouts now, 38? He truly is a legend

As a sidebar, I just got back from General Santos and Sarangani Province last week -- my second trip to the Pacman's home. Pacman fever is all over the place, and his Gen San home is on the itineary of any local tour.
The first time I went was during his election to Congress (that he lost), but I learnt that he is running in Sarangani Province next year, and not Gen San city.
I always take some Asian pride when we succeed at manly pursuits. Do you think people would still be doubting on Manny if he were black or latino?
On a similar note I was proud as hell of Hideki Matsui too, even though I'm neither a baseball nor a Yankee fan. Maybe we need some more Asian sports celebrities who aren't so humble and gracious - some bad boy arrogant types - to balance things out and dispel the stereotype that Asian athletes are honorable and classy.
I'm a distant cousin of Singaporean pop sensation Dìck Lee. Bruce would have been a lot cooler but I'll take it.
I hope you realize Floyd is not really like that, it's all to hype the fight and publicity. He said it himself people like controversy and drama.
Actions speak louder than words though.
He wants a 65:35 split of the prize money for a bout with Manny, which is just ridiculous. I stand to be corrected though.
He is in a bad spot, if he loses and if he wins. It's going to look bad. I think it's probably going to come down to 55/45 or 50/50. I believe in Roach but I don't think Manny will be able to beat Floyd after watching the Cotto fight. Just the way Cotto begin to outbox Manny and begin to win some rounds. Defensively he didn't have an answer to that jab.
Truth is Shane causes more problems for Mayweather than Manny.
Is there an indelible line between sanity and insanity?
