‘Manny’s really hungry for a knockout’ – Roach



By Bombo Ponciano \’John\’ Melo Jr -July 4, 2019 | 3:07 PM

Habang papalapit ang labanan patuloy din naman ang “pagpapatama” ng World Boxing Association super welterweight champion na si Keith “One Time” Thurman sa pambansang kamao na si Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao.

Sa kanyang huling Instagram live na kuha habang papunta sa kanilang interview ni Pacquiao sa Los Angeles, patuloy nitong kinukwestyon ang balak na pagreretiro ng fighting senator.

Ilang beses na rin kasing naging usap-usapan ang isyu tungkol sa nalalapit na raw ang pagreretiro ni Pacquiao.

Ngunit matapos ngang matalo sa kanyang laban kay Jeff Horn noong Hulyo 2017, mariin nitong sinabi na ipagpapatuloy pa rin ang career sa pagboboksing.

“I love this sport and until the passion is gone, I will continue to fight for God, my family, my fans and my country,” ani Pacquiao.

Dagdag naman ng wala pang talo na si Thurman, handa na nitong harapin ang susunod nitong napipisil na kalabanin na si Errol Pence na nakatakdang harapin si Shawn Porter sa Setyembre.

Samantala, nanatiling kibit-balikat lamang ang sagot ng eight-division world champion sa mga pasaring ni Thurman.

Sa halip aniya ayon sa batikang boksingero ay gagamitin niya ang mga batikos bilang inspirasyon sa kanyang nalalapit na laban.

Ngunit ayon naman sa CEO ng Mayweather Promotions na si Leonard Ellerbe sa isang video mula sa, dapat na maging maingat si Thurman sa kanyang mga binibitawang pambabatikos sa pambansang kamao.

“But he’s fighting a straight dog in Manny Pacquiao who’s at 40 years old. To even be having a conversation that can a 40-year old beat a 30-year old, that tells you what kind of level or respect that the fans have for Manny Pacquiao and the accomplishments that he has,” dagdag nito.

“My message to Keith, I can tell you firsthand: it’s a little different how it looks when you first get up in there,” wika pa ni Ellerbe.

Sa estado ni Pacquiao, palagi na ring napatunayan na hindi nakakaapekto ang kanyang edad sa kanyang career sa pagboboksing hanggang sa ngayon.

Patunay nito ay ang kanyang dalawang huling laban kay Lucas Matthysse at Adrien Broner.

Mataas naman ang kumpiyansa ni Thurman na kaya niyang patumbahin si Pacquiao sa kanilang nalalapit na laban.

Samantala, sa kabila rin ng mga pasaring ni Thurman, mas kumpiyansa ang trainer ni Pacquaio na si Freddie Roach na hindi mapapatumba ng kalaban ang pambansang kamao.

Ani Roach, gutom si Pacquiao sa knockout at hindi imposibleng mapatumba nito si Thurman.

“I think we’ll knock him out along the way. I think that Manny’s really hungry for a knockout, I’m really hungry for a knockout. We’ve never knocked anyone out at 147, and that’s something we need to do,” sagot nito sa isang interview mula sa Fight Hub TV.

Banat naman ng huli, kaya niyang ma-knockout si Pacquiao nang hindi lalagpas sa ikalawa o ikatlong round.

Sa kasalukuyan, may 61 na ring panalo ang Pinoy ring icon at 39 dito ay via knockout.

Sa kabilang dako ay may 22 knockouts mula sa 29 na panalo si Thurman.

Despite boxing exhibition, Floyd Mayweather firm on retirement



By Ponciano Melo – Floyd Mayweather once again displayed his amazing showmanship in the sports of boxing. An easy money for an easy fight.

Millions of dollars came flowing right into his account as he made an eight-round exhibition boxing against YouTube personality Logan Paul. The fight went to distance and there was no winner.

Fans and star personalities in attendance were hoping for a more action fight but they received a little power punches and thrill.

Although, many commended the toughness of Paul against the fading power of the 44-year old Mayweather.

Now, the questions after the fight was obvious: will Floyd come back and fight professional once again?

The answer was clear from the legendary boxer.

\”I\’m never coming back to boxing. I\’m absolutely not,\” he said during the post press conference.

He only had praise for his opponent and nothing more.

\”I had fun. You\’ve got to realize I\’m not 21 anymore. He was strong, tough and better than I thought he was. I was surprised by him tonight. Good work. Good little guy,\” he added.

He also insisted that he already made his mark in boxing and he has enough wealth.

\”When the money comes, we\’ll see who is the real winner.”

\”At the end of the day, I\’m going into the Hall of Fame for boxing. I have nothing to prove.\”

Manny Pacquiao is back in training!



By Ponciano Melo – With over two months of staying until his profoundly expected battle against Errol Spence Jr, Manny Pacquaio began preparing.

Generally viewed as perhaps the best fighter ever, the Filipino southpaw has had a renowned lifetime, winning 12 world titles and being the solitary eight-division best on the planet in the game.

He has a severe excellent expert record of 62 successes out of 71 battles with just seven losses up until this point.

Pacquaio\’s last battle was against Keith Thurman in Nevada just about two years prior. In this manner, he won the session through split choice, turning into the most established welterweight champion at 40 years old years and 216 days.

The 42-year-old will next take on Errol Spence Jr at the same scene on August 21, and he\’s as of now began his preparation as the new film demonstrates.

The battle in August is something boxing fans everywhere in the world will be excited about watching. Pacquaio will undoubtedly confront perhaps the most challenging episode of his vocation. On the other hand, Spence, the current IBF and WBC welterweight champion has yet to lose any of his 27 battles and will be excited about keeping up that record.

The 31-year-old\’s last battle was against Danny Garcia, which he won, and that is presumably why he is viewed as the top pick against Pacquaio in August. Nonetheless, the 42-year-old will be a long way from willing to tap out.

Not long back, Floyd Mayweather, who beat Pacquaio in 2015, said, via BoxingNews24: \”He [Pacquiao] is very dangerous still.\”

Spence, who is currently at the peak of his powers, might be the favorite to win the fight in August, but someone of Pacquaio\’s quality should not be written off. With a sea of experience under his belt, the Filipino is more than capable of giving his opponent a run for his money.

Nevertheless, it is a highly-anticipated fight, one which fans can hardly wait for.

It will be interesting to see who comes out on top in Nevada.
