May 9, 2012 (Las Vegas)- Manny Pacquiao, Philippine’s pride in boxing and Tim Bradley of America battled the “World Welterweight Championship.”
The event started with Jessica Sanchez (Filipino-American-Mexican singer, runner-up of American Idol Season 11) singing “Star Spangled Banner.”
And the young Filipino-American singer, Kirby Asunto sang our Philippine National Anthem!
The battle lasted for 12 rounds…
Those 12 rounds were really bloody!!! But I think “Pacman” had done it well! He really deserved to win the Welterweight Championship…
When boxing referee, Michael Buffer announced that Tim Bradley had won the fight, I was very disappointed because Pacquiao had greater “super punches” of his left hand than Bradley!
The judges had a split decision…Bob Arum, the founder and CEO of Top rank, a professional boxing promotion company based in Las Vegas, called the three judges “The Three Blind Mice” because he said that the judges had the wrong decision and that Pacquiao should’ve won the battle!
Some highlights of the battle:
Many celebrities were team Pacquiao like Heejun Han (American Idol Season 11 contestant), apl. de. ap., and Miley Cyrus, Bruno Mars, Chris Daughtry, and Paul Coelho according to their tweets about Tim Bradley’s victory!
You know what??? I’m not a boxing fan…But ‘am a boxing fan if “Pacman” has a battle, I have my opinion now: Pacquiao should’ve won the fight!
But I believe that this is his first step of having faith in the Lord.
That’s the day when I knew that Pacquiao can be beaten…But I have realized that he is still faithful to the Lord :).
