A taste of his kaldereta version turned Cliff Ramat Manzano from a former Filipino boxer into one of Manny Pacquiao’s favorite cooks.
A dish he prepared before Pacquiao faced off against Adrien Broner last January caught the taste buds of the Filipino boxing icon as he requested Manzano to cook for him again.
“Noong una’y katuwaan lamang sa laban ni Broner, nag-request sila ng kambing at ako’y napagluto nila ng kaldereta. At noong natikma’y hinahanap ay hindi ko alam kung bakit,” said Manzano.
The native from Villasis, Pangasinan got a call from Pacquiao that sent him back to California.
While doing his job as a cook, Manzano was also able to see the conditioning of Pacquiao and as a former boxer, he evaluated Manny at 95% as he continues to increase his training before their fight on July 20 at the MGM Grand Arena.
Manzano hasn’t been a part of team Pacquiao since his last fight but he is with the team whenever they have their training.
And according to him, Pacquiao is doing great on his sparring session with reports that he knocked down one of his sparring partners.
“Ayon sa nakasaksi sa Wildcard gym na hindi natin papangalanan, ay bumagsak. Pinagbagsak niya ang mga sparring partner niya at kinawawa,” Manzano elaborated.
Team Pacquiao is all hands in helping the senator every way possible to be better and win. Manzano’s kaldereta might help Pacquiao dirt the clean record of Thurman.

Tyson Fury's Dad sets constraints on the AJ-Fury rematch

The “Gypsy King” Tyson Fury (33-0-1) is set to rematch with two-time former unified world heavyweight champ Anthony Joshua (26-3-0) next year but Fury’s dad pushes Joshua vs Wilder first.

Deontay Wilder, “The Bronze Bomber” (43-2-1), former WBC heavyweight champ, is the first American world heavyweight champ since 2007. He defended his title for 10 times.

But, Wilder lost to Fury twice after their trilogy last October 9, 2021 in an eleventh round KO.

John Fury blurted to The Daily Mail that many boxers are ducking Wilder because they are afraid of him. He added that only his son defeated Wilder twice yet he praised the latter’s power.

As of this writing, the said rematch is still unclear however, DAZN reported last September 23, 2023 that promoter Eddie Hearns got an venue offer to stage the fight next year.

Pacquiao's alleged illegitimate son Eman Bacosa goes pro.

The 19 year old Emmanuel Joseph Bacosa, who is allegedly the son of Manny Pacquiao, fought Jommel Cudiamat in the “Blow by Blow” undercard event last September 23, 2023.

Cudiamat vs Bacosa resulted in a split draw however, as of today, boxing fans are getting hype with Eman’s physique as it resembles teenager Pacman.

Fans are comparing Eman to the legitimate sons of Manny who are having a comfortable life. They are expecting Jimuel Pacquiao “legit son” Pacquiao vs Eman “bastard son”.

Pacquaio promoted “blow by blow” which is coincidentally the start of his illegitimate son’s professional career.

MP Promotions produced Blow by Blow, a weekly sports television boxing program airing on One Sports channel.

As of this writing, Eman’s photos beside Pacquaio are spreading online.

Joanna Rose Bacosa is reportedly the mother of Eman.

Crawford no match to Canelo at 168 – GGG coach

Gennady Golovkin (GGG) former coach Abel Sanchez presumes that Terrence Crawford is no match to Mexican pound for pound king Canelo Alvarez at 168 lbs.

In an interview by Fight Hub TV last October 9, 2023, GGG coach said that Canelo vs Crawford is laughable.

Sanchez is a Mexican-American trainer and coach of Gennady Golovkin who is the real rival of Canelo.

Undefeated and undisputed welterweight champion Crawford (40 – 0) has defeated his rival Errol Spence jr. last July 29, 2023 but still not enough to win vs Canelo.

It can be recalled that both Crawford and Spence Jr. have been craving to fight the Mexican superstar but to no avail.

When asked if Crawford can win vs Canelo, Sanchez said: “He [Crawford] gets beat. So, in my opinion, that’s not a good fight.”
