Manny Pacquiao: An Introduction to Margarito Fight

Manny Pacquiao: An Introduction to Margarito Fight

This is brief information about Manny Pacquiao. Manny was born on December 17, 1978, and is now a world-renowned boxing champion. He is also a politician, winning a congressman position in the Philippines. His father is Rosalio Pacquiao and her mother, now a well known actress, is Dionesia Pacquiao. Not many people know that Manny is also a very devoted Catholic, and much like any other Filipino citizens, he always visits the Black Nazarene church in Quiapo, Manila every time a boxing fight has commenced. Manny Pacquiao is also a reservist in Philippine Army, with a rand of Sergeant Major for the fifteenth Ready Reserve Division. Manny Pacquiao has been the Filipino pride. Whenever he is in the ring, it was noticed by many that on that day, crime rate is very low. This shows how much Filipinos value Manny Pacquiao and what he has done to provide glory to his country.

One thing people might notice though is that he appears too much in television, having weekly shows. He has become a big celebrity which other thinks he abuses to gain people’s trust, winning him a congressman position. This is somewhat true because his candidacy could have been a different story had he not been a boxing champion and a celebrity. Many Filipinos nowadays have different problems, ranging from poverty to safety issues to high unemployment rates. Some Filipinos (Pinoys) always gathering and forming a rally just to have their voices heard. This is tiring to some as rallies are formed almost in a weekly basis. Instead of rallying, why don’t they just act responsibly and for alliances with others to generate more success?

Like Manny who started from the very bottom, they too could be as successful as he is, by striving hard and giving a hundred percent all the time. On November 13, 2010, Manny Pacquiao will fight Antonio Margarito for a chance in gaining the WBC Super Welterweight World Title, and in winning will give him eight weight class titles. Maybe on November 13, crime rates in the Philippines will be low again.
