UFC fighters BJ Penn and Frank Mir credit and praise Manny Pacquiao
December 13, 2009 · Filed Under Featured, News, Videos
Fresh off of their impressive victories at UFC 107, Lightweight champion BJ Penn and former heavyweight champion Frank Mir had both mentioned Manny Pacquiao as an inspiration, Frank Mir credited his knock down punch of Cheick Kongo as “The Pacquiao” punch, the same type of overhand left that Pacquiao knocked out Ricky Hatton with.

Mir who looked like a heavyweight version of Manny Pacquiao in his Dec. 2008 fight against Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, used the same tactics he used in the Nogueira fight against Cheick Kongo.

In an Article by Gareth A. Davies of the Telegraph, Frank Mir had this to say about his overhand left after his submission win at UFC 107 “It’s something we’ve been saying the whole training camp. We call it “The Pacquiao,” because Manny Pacquiao will step off as a southpaw and throw the overhand left. As soon as I hit Kongo I went to catch him with the uppercut and I didn’t see him, he was on the ground.”

BJ Penn dominated and defeated the durable Diego Sanchez by TKO. At the post fight press conference (video below) he praises Manny Pacquiao and compares his strategy to what Pacman does in the ring. Freddie Roach, Pacquiao’s trainer, has said in the past that BJ Penn has the best Boxing in all of MMA.

The Yankees are interested in hosting a Pacquiao-Mayweather fight next spring

Pacquiao-Mayweather a Match Made in Heaven (or Yankee Stadium?)

LAS VEGAS — Three hours after Manny Pacquiao dispatched Miguel Cotto on Saturday night to capture his record seventh title in seven weight divisions, he jogged onto the stage at the Mandalay Bay Events Center.
Skip to next paragraph
Pacquiao Claims Seventh TitleSlide Show
Pacquiao Claims Seventh Title
Behind the Fighter Manny Pacquiao, the Fight for His Favor (November 13, 2009)
With Pacquiao-Cotto, Boxing Is Ready for a Rebirth, Again (November 15, 2009)

Pacquiao wore a bandage over his right ear, which had been drained, a fedora and the smile of a man who had just made at least $13 million and won his seventh title. But while Pacquiao and his band launched into “La Bamba,” the boxing world had already turned toward his next potential fight, against Floyd Mayweather Jr., a sure blockbuster if it happens.

“I get chills just thinking about it,” said Ross Greenburg, president of HBO Sports. “The reality is there’s only one fight to be made. We’ve waited a long time to get one of this magnitude.”

With the undefeated Mayweather and an international superstar in Pacquiao, the biggest draws in boxing, Greenburg said the bout would deserve a “Super Bowl-type stage.” That presents an enticing option, as early as next May — Yankee Stadium.

The Yankees are interested in hosting a Pacquiao-Mayweather fight next spring, according to a person in baseball who spoke on the condition of anonymity. There have been no formal discussions, and there will not be before an agreement is reached between the fighters, but high-ranking Yankees employees have told boxing officials of their interest.

The Yankees held a news conference for Pacquiao and Cotto this fall, part of the effort to showcase the Stadium as a multipurpose site. Yankee Stadium has three times the capacity of the MGM Grand Garden Arena, the site for the Pacquiao-Cotto fight, which holds just over 17,000.

Freddie Roach, Pacquiao’s trainer, said he believed Pacquiao and Mayweather would sell out Yankee Stadium. “That’s a fight the world wants to see,” he said.

Still, obstacles remain.

Mayweather used to fight for Top Rank Boxing, but when he left he said that Bob Arum, Top Rank’s chairman, shortchanges his fighters for money and opportunity. Arum did not hide his dislike for Mayweather on Saturday, but said personal feelings would not interfere with business.

Considered the best in boxing until he retired for more than a year, Mayweather made serious money after leaving Top Rank, in bouts against Oscar De La Hoya, Ricky Hatton and Juan Manuel Marquez. The Marquez fight surpassed one million pay-per-view buys, according to HBO, fueling Mayweather’s contention that he remains the biggest draw.

Early projections for the Pacquiao-Cotto fight, which ended with a 12th-round technical knockout, suggest pay-per-view buys in the range of 1.3 million to 1.4 million. A fight between Pacquiao and Mayweather would most likely surpass that and rank among the most viewed in boxing history.

“No matter who Manny fights right now, he’s going to draw a big crowd,” said Bruce Trampler, Top Rank’s matchmaker. “That’s the difference between these guys. Floyd needs a Manny. He needs a De La Hoya, a Hatton. And that’s no disrespect to Floyd. But one guy is an attraction and the other is a good draw.”

Perhaps. But boxing optimists hope that how the fighters would split the money will matter less than their interest in the total pot, which would be well into the tens of millions.

Arum said he planned to begin discussions Monday with Richard Schaefer, the chief executive of Golden Boy Promotions and the promoter for Mayweather’s last three fights. But the solution seems obvious at the outset, although in boxing, obvious does not always translate to a deal.

“There’s too much in the pot,” Greenburg said. “There’s too much of an opportunity here. Just take that big wad of money, all those millions, and split it down the middle.”

Greenburg labeled the likelihood of Pacquiao’s meeting Mayweather as great. He compared the level of interest in that fight to those staged in the 1980s by Sugar Ray Leonard, Tommy Hearns and Marvin Hagler.

Still, either Pacquiao or Mayweather, or both, could schedule another bout before they face each other. Greenburg called that prospect ridiculous and said just thinking about it made him ill. But as recently as last month, Roach said he wanted to fight Marquez, who had a controversial loss to Pacquiao.

As evidenced against Cotto, Pacquiao keeps improving and winning in punishing and dramatic fashion. Roach has developed Pacquiao into a devastating finisher. Pacquiao declined Saturday to compare himself to other boxing greats, but Roach did not hesitate, labeling Pacquiao “the greatest fighter of his era, for sure, 100 percent.”

That said, should Pacquiao and Mayweather never square off, their legacies will not be complete, Greenburg said.

“Pacquiao’s place in history is rising on a daily basis,” he said. “But he can only complete it by taking that next step. And it’s an obvious next step. Until he beats Floyd Mayweather, his legacy’s not cemented. And the same goes for Floyd, against Pacquiao.”

Manny Pacquaio vs Miguel Cotto weight in

Manny Pacquiao (144 lbs) and Miguel Cotto (145 lbs) made weight without incident moments ago at an electric MGM Grand Garden arena packed with a frenzied crowd.

Miguel Cottos arival in Las Vegas


A mob scene-and-a-half greeted two world champions today at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Manny Pacquiao got the mob scene, Miguel Cotto got the half, when the two made their grand arrivals at the venue where they will face one another Saturday night on HBO-PPV.

Around 11:30 a.m., Pacquiao made his entrance to a crowd that filled the casino’s front lobby. After speaking to TV media and greeting fans, he made his way to the Grand Garden Arena where, after testing out the ring, he sat down with print media for a 15-minute Q&A session.

One hour later, Cotto’s bus pulled up to the casino where a crowd, not quite so large, but just as loud, greeted the Puerto Rican champion. After a brief wave to the crowd and TV interviews, Cotto, likewise, was hustled to the arena where he will face Pacquiao on Saturday.

Both fighters proclaimed peak form and said they were unfazed by the hype surrounding the fight.

“I’m happy for that and understand this part of it all,” said Pacquiao. “I am focused on the fight.”

Despite diversions in the Philippines, Pacquiao said that training camp has been good.

“I’m, right now, ready to go,” he said, touching on the high altitude of camp in the Philippines, training with former champ Jose Luis Castillo and finishing up camp in Los Angeles at the Wild Card Gym.

Pacquiao shrugged off questions about Cotto being his toughest – biggest and strongest – opponent to date.

“I believe in myself,” he said, laughing. “I don’t want to say anything before the fight, but will wait until the ring.

“My motivation? I am fighting for the people who love boxing.”

How Pacquiao has been able to move up in weight, from 105 lbs., in his pro debut, to now fight as a welterweight, is still a wonder for the champ.

“It just happened,” he said. “I watch the tape [when a 105-pounder] and I’m a kid, cocky. I struggled to make weight and lost my flyweight belt because I couldn’t make weight.

“Now, I feel strong. Like David and Goliath, as an example. But if you believe in God and train hard, if you love your opponent and love everybody, it is good.”

As Pacquiao fended off questions about size and strength, Cotto was asked to explain how he would handle the Filipino’s speed.

“I’m prepared for the speed of Manny,” said Cotto. “I have equal hand speed and prepared well with my sparring partners.

“I’m prepared for anything.”

Though Pacquiao has left reviewing tapes to his trainer, Freddie Roach, Cotto says he has studied his opponent – mainly his first fights with Erik Morales and Marco Antonio Barrera.

“We have the key to the fight,” said Cotto. “Our camp has made the difference.”

When asked about who’s next, after Pacquiao, Cotto would not comment, but he did talk about those who are prematurely writing about a future Pacquiao-Mayweather matchup.

“Manny is the only thing in my mind right now,” said Cotto. “I don’t know what Manny thinks, but when we’re in the ring together Saturday night, he can think about whatever opponent he wants.

“It’s going to be just Manny and me and the referee. There’s nobody else.”

2009 H1N1 Flu by the Center for Disease Control

2009 H1N1 Flu

What is 2009 H1N1 (swine flu)?
2009 H1N1 (sometimes called “swine flu”) is a new influenza virus causing illness in people. This new virus was first detected in people in the United States in April 2009. This virus is spreading from person-to-person worldwide, probably in much the same way that regular seasonal influenza viruses spread. On June 11, 2009, the World Health OrganizationExternal Web Site Icon (WHO) signaled that a pandemic of 2009 H1N1 flu was underway.

H1N1 Influenza virus imageWhy is 2009 H1N1 virus sometimes called “swine flu”?
This virus was originally referred to as “swine flu” because laboratory testing showed that many of the genes in this new virus were very similar to influenza viruses that normally occur in pigs (swine) in North America. But further study has shown that this new virus is very different from what normally circulates in North American pigs. It has two genes from flu viruses that normally circulate in pigs in Europe and Asia and bird (avian) genes and human genes. Scientists call this a "quadruple reassortant" virus.

2009 H1N1 Flu in Humans

Are there human infections with 2009 H1N1 virus in the U.S.?
Yes. Human infections with 2009 H1N1 are ongoing in the United States. Most people who have become ill with this new virus have recovered without requiring medical treatment.
CDC routinely works with states to collect, compile and analyze information about influenza, and has done the same for the new H1N1 virus since the beginning of the outbreak. This information is presented in a weekly report, called FluView.

Is 2009 H1N1 virus contagious?
The 2009 H1N1 virus is contagious and is spreading from human to human.

How does 2009 H1N1 virus spread?
Spread of 2009 H1N1 virus is thought to occur in the same way that seasonal flu spreads. Flu viruses are spread mainly from person to person through coughing or sneezing by people with influenza. Sometimes people may become infected by touching something – such as a surface or object – with flu viruses on it and then touching their mouth or nose.

Can I get 2009 H1N1 more than once? Nov 5
Getting infected with any influenza virus, including 2009 H1N1, should cause your body to develop immune resistance to that virus so it's not likely that a person would be infected with the identical influenza virus more than once. (However, people with weakened immune systems might not develop full immunity after infection and might be more likely to get infected with the same influenza virus more than once.) However, it's also possible that a person could have a positive test result for flu infection more than once in an influenza season. This can occur for two reasons:

1. A person may be infected with different influenza viruses (for example, the first time with 2009 H1N1 and the second time with a regular seasonal flu virus. Most rapid tests cannot distinguish which influenza virus is responsible for the illness. And,
2. Influenza tests can occasionally give false positive and false negative results so it's possible that one of the test results were incorrect. This is more likely to happen when the diagnosis is made with the rapid flu tests. More information about flu diagnosis is available at

What are the signs and symptoms of this virus in people?
The symptoms of 2009 H1N1 flu virus in people include fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue. Some people may have vomiting and diarrhea. People may be infected with the flu, including 2009 H1N1 and have respiratory symptoms without a fever. Severe illnesses and deaths have occurred as a result of illness associated with this virus.

How severe is illness associated with 2009 H1N1 flu virus?
Illness with 2009 H1N1 virus has ranged from mild to severe. While most people who have been sick have recovered without needing medical treatment, hospitalizations and deaths from infection with this virus have occurred.

In seasonal flu, certain people are at “high risk” of serious complications. This includes people 65 years and older, children younger than five years old, pregnant women, and people of any age with certain chronic medical conditions. About 70 percent of people who have been hospitalized with this 2009 H1N1 virus have had one or more medical conditions previously recognized as placing people at “high risk” of serious seasonal flu-related complications. This includes pregnancy, diabetes, heart disease, asthma and kidney disease.

Young children are also at high risk of serious complications from 2009 H1N1, just as they are from seasonal flu. And while people 65 and older are the least likely to be infected with 2009 H1N1 flu, if they get sick, they are also at “high risk” of developing serious complications from their illness. See People at High Risk of Developing Flu-Related Complications for more information about who is more likely to get flu complications that result in being hospitalized and occasionally result in death.

CDC laboratory studies have shown that no children and very few adults younger than 60 years old have existing antibody to 2009 H1N1 flu virus; however, about one-third of adults older than 60 may have antibodies against this virus. It is unknown how much, if any, protection may be afforded against 2009 H1N1 flu by any existing antibody.

How does 2009 H1N1 flu compare to seasonal flu in terms of its severity and infection rates?
With seasonal flu, we know that seasons vary in terms of timing, duration and severity. Seasonal influenza can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to death. Each year, in the United States, on average 36,000 people die from flu-related complications and more than 200,000 people are hospitalized from flu-related causes. Of those hospitalized, 20,000 are children younger than 5 years old. Over 90% of deaths and about 60 percent of hospitalization occur in people older than 65.

When the 2009 H1N1 outbreak was first detected in mid-April 2009, CDC began working with states to collect, compile and analyze information regarding the 2009 H1N1 flu outbreak, including the numbers of confirmed and probable cases and the ages of these people. The information analyzed by CDC supports the conclusion that 2009 H1N1 flu has caused greater disease burden in people younger than 25 years of age than older people. At this time, there are relatively fewer cases and deaths reported in people 65 years and older, which is unusual when compared with seasonal flu. However, pregnancy and other previously recognized high risk medical conditions from seasonal influenza appear to be associated with increased risk of complications from this 2009 H1N1. These underlying conditions include asthma, diabetes, suppressed immune systems, heart disease, kidney disease, neurocognitive and neuromuscular disorders and pregnancy.

How long can an infected person spread this virus to others?
People infected with seasonal and 2009 H1N1 flu shed virus and may be able to infect others from 1 day before getting sick to 5 to 7 days after. This can be longer in some people, especially children and people with weakened immune systems and in people infected with the new H1N1 virus.

Manny Pacquiao appeared as a guest on one of America's most popular evening talk shows "Jimmy Kimmel Live"

part 1


Celebrity boxer Manny Pacquiao appeared as a guest on one of America's most popular evening talk shows "Jimmy Kimmel Live", where he talked about his acting career, his training regimen, and where he gets his orange juice.

Here is the transcript of the interview, which aired on ABC:

Jimmy Kimmel: You've got a superhero character.

Manny Pacquiao: Oh, that's my movie.

(Audience laughs)

JK: What are Whapakman's powers?

MP: Everything.

JK: Everything? Can you fly?

MP: Yeah, I do my own stunts in the shooting.

JK: Can he get invisible?

MP: No but um...

JK: Oh, not everyting...

MP: (Laughs). Yeah a lot of things. It makes like a Superman, Spiderman, you know.

JK: You like acting? Is that what you want to do in the future?

MP: Aside from boxing, I like acting.

JK: So you're boxing, acting and you do some singing also.

MP: Singing.

JK: You've recorded an album? Another album, I hear?

MP: Yeah.

JK: It's usually not a good idea for boxers to record albums. You feel like it's a positive experience for you?

MP: We'll I'm enjoying doing it, you know.

JK: You're like the most popular guy in all of the Philippines, right?

MP: (Nods, then laughs)

JK: When you go back there, it must be crazy. You must not be able to go anywhere.

MP: People recognize me, they get excited. They want to take a picture.

JK: So it makes it difficult for you to go around?

MP: Yeah I can't go around... even to the mall.

JK: You can't go to the mall? Where do you get your "Orange Julius"?

MP: (Laughs) I send somebody to get it for me.

JK: I heard your entourage is enormous. How many men and women are in your entourage?

MP: A lot... like more than 30.

JK: More than 30? What are their jobs? Do they all have jobs?

MP: They have their own jobs... They are, have assignments.

JK: Each one has an assignment? Seems like someone could double up though, right? Like the one like, 'You're the guy who gets me coffee'?

MP: There's a guy who cook for me, wash my clothes, clean my room...

JK: All separate guys? And I heard you live with a lot of people, like, you live with 15 people in a place here in LA? Is that true?

MP: In my apartment. Not 15, it's like 8.

JK: Wow. that's a lot of people. You ever wish that you could be by yourself?

MP: Sometimes I'm thinking it's good to be alone.

JK: Just like Pam Anderson who lives in her trailer.

MP: (Laughs)

JK: You get to meet her at all?

MP: No.

JK: You're a married man, right? You have kids? How many kids do you have?

MP: The first one is Junior, the second one is Michael Stephen, the third one is Mary Divine Grace, and the fourth is Queen Elizabeth.

JK: Queen Elizabeth? Not THE Queen Elizabeth. Why did you name her Queen Elizabeth?

MP: Well, I like that name.

JK: Have you ever met the queen?

MP: No.

JK: I think that you'd be interested. You named your daughter after her.

MP: You know, it's kind of, I like to watch the movies you know...

JK: I think you mean Queen Latifa.

MP: (Laughs)

JK: You're training very hard. In fact, I find this very hard to believe. Is it true that this is a stick that, part of your training is you get hit with this stick?

MP: Yeah, it hurts.

JK: This is serious. yeah, (calls to man off-camera) come over here for a second. Beat Manny with this stick and let's see what happens.

MP: (Stands up. Man taps him with the stick at the abdomen, Pacquiao tries the same thing on JK)

MP: It's like a mind conditioning for the pain.

JK: It doubles the pain and desensitizes you? That's a bad idea i think... (audience laughs) You're fighting on Nov. 14, you're fighting a good fighter, Miguel Cotto from Puerto Rico. I think it's interesting that you haven't been bragging that you'd knock the guy out. You have respect for him as a fighter.

MP: Yeah, I respect Miguel Cotto. He's the champion for this fight and I'm the challenger. He's a good fighter also.

JK: You're going up the weight class to fight him.

MP: Yeah.

JK: It's a big fight and has many millions of dollars. Once you fight him, you feel like you would have done everything or you continue to fight?

MP: I don't know, it's hard to say right now. But this fight is very important to me because if I win this fight, it will be a history in boxing.

JK: Once you have $30-40 million in the bank, it seems like you've left this stick even less pleasurable.

The New York Yankees are the MLB World Series Champion for the 27th time.

The 2009 season.

The Yankees opened the new Yankee Stadium at the beginning of the 2009 season, which quickly acquired a reputation as a "home run-friendly" ballpark. The Yankees set a major league record by playing error-free ball for 18 consecutive games from May 14 – June 1, 2009.[28]

After the All-Star Break, the Yankees started the second half of their season 8–0, and would go on to have a 52–22 record through the rest of the season, finishing eight games ahead of the Red Sox in the AL East. They would face the Twins in the ALDS, who had just won the Central off a one-game playoff with the Tigers. The Yankees defeated the Twins in a sweep, and faced the Angels in the ALCS, a team which had eliminated them from the playoffs twice in the previous seven years. After losing two out of three in Anaheim, the Yankees won the series in Game 6 at home, clinching the American League Pennant. They defeated the Philadelphia Phillies in Game 6 of the World Series 7 to 3, to take the series 4–2, their 27th World Series title

It has become popular to begin comparing this Yankees team to the best of the dynasty years -- that 1998 championship club -- because of the resiliency displayed within 15 regular-season walk-off wins and now two more in the postseason.

While Girardi has deflected those comments by saying the 2009 Yankees must win the World Series to march among the best, there are those who want to believe this Yankees team is better equipped to raise the 27th championship flag than almost all of its predecessors from the last decade.

"The similarities are just good teams," Andy Pettitte said. "Good starting pitching, good bullpens. Obviously our lineups are a little bit better from the standpoint of power. We had great lineups from the standpoint of throwing at-bats at you, but our guys have unbelievable power and are throwing great at-bats at guys right now

Hatton, stopped in 10 rounds by Mayweather and two rounds by Pacman, had this to say when I asked him who would win if Pacquiao and Mayweather were to ever get it on:

“I’d like to think Manny would win. I’d hope he’d win because he’s a gentleman, really nice guy, family man. Everything about him I really admire. But as much as I don’t like Mayweather, he’s one hell of a fighter. Mayweather would probably pip him.”

Of course, Pacquiao must first get past Miguel Cotto

Insider trading is the trading of a corporation's stock or other securities (e.g. bonds or stock options) by individuals with potential access to non-public information about the company. In most countries, trading by corporate insiders such as officers, key employees, directors, and large shareholders may be legal, if this trading is done in a way that does not take advantage of non-public information. However, the term is frequently used to refer to a practice in which an insider or a related party trades based on material non-public information obtained during the performance of the insider's duties at the corporation, or otherwise in breach of a fiduciary or other relationship of trust and confidence or where the non-public information was misappropriated from the company.[1]

In the United States and several other jurisdictions, trading conducted by corporate officers, key employees, directors, or significant shareholders (in the U.S., defined as beneficial owners of ten percent or more of the firm's equity securities) must be reported to the regulator or publicly disclosed, usually within a few business days of the trade. Many investors follow the summaries of these insider trades in the hope that mimicking these trades will be profitable. While "legal" insider trading cannot be based on material non-public information, some investors believe corporate insiders nonetheless may have better insights into the health of a corporation (broadly speaking) and that their trades otherwise convey important information (e.g., about the pending retirement of an important officer selling shares, greater commitment to the corporation by officers purchasing shares, etc.)

Illegal insider trading is believed to raise the cost of capital for securities issuers, thus decreasing overall economic growt

The Pacqaio vs Cotto boxing match is expected to be among the best fights in boxing history.

This boxing match is expected to be as an exciting and action-packed classic such as Hagler vs. Hearns and Ali vs. Frazier III produced by Top Rank. On November 14, Pacquiao vs. Cotto will join that list of boxing classics."

Pacquiao (49-3-2, 37 KOs), of General Santos City, Philippines, has won six world titles in as many different weight divisions ranging from 112 to 140 pounds.

This year, he picked up where he left off last year – winning another world title in a new weight division -- dealing defending junior welterweight champion Ricky Hatton a one-punch second-round knockout on May 2.

Cotto (34-1, 27 KOs), from Caguas, Puerto Rico, has sold more tickets to Madison Square Garden in this millennium than any other fighter. He has held a world title every year since 2004. Puerto Rico's most exciting fighter, Cotto held the WBO junior welterweight crown from 2004-2006, successfully defending it six times before vacating it to capture the World Boxing Association (WBA) welterweight title at the end of 2006, a title he held for nearly as long. He won his second welterweight title in February this year, knocking out Michael Jennings in the fifth round at Madison Square Garden to become the WBO welterweight champion.

Manny Pacquiao vs. Miguel Cotto, “FirePower” will take place Saturday, Nov. 14 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena and will be televised live on HBO Pay-Per-View beginning at 9 p.m. PST/6 p.m. PST.

Top Rank is currently working on a major media tour to commence immediately following Labor Day weekend.

Chief promoter Bob Arum of Top Rank announced that Pacquiao and Cotto will embark on a four-city press tour starting on September 10 in New York, September 12 in Caguas, September 13 in San Francisco and September 14 in Los Angeles.

Cotto unconvinced that Pacquaio will beat him.

Miguel Cotto(34-1 with 27 KOs) beleive that Pacquiao doesn’t have the physical attributes to topple him even at the catch weight of 145 pounds.

In an interview with Puerto Rican newspaper Primera Hora on Friday, Cotto said his only concern about Pacquiao was his speed although he noted that he could neutralize it with a “good defense.”

Cotto said “good defense” would be his answer to Pacquiao’s speed, indicating he would use the ring and his boxing skills in his coming mega fight at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas.

While showing tremendous respect for Pacquiao, Cotto said he does not think Pacquiao could overcome his physical advantage and strength, which he added would be the key to his victory.

Paul Malignaggi predicts a Cotto knockout over Pacquaio

According to Paul Malignaggi, Cotto ,the Puerto Rican (34-1 with 27 KOs) is simply “too big and too strong” for Pacquiao, the pound-for-pound king, who is a 2-1 favorite in early betting odds. Malignaggi who loss to Cotto by unanimous decision three years ago, said Cotto would knock Pacquiao out and retain his World Boxing Organization welterweight crown. Unconvinced of Pacquiao’s punching power, Malignaggi even suggested that South African Joshua Clottey is capable of knocking Pacquaio.

The Pacquiao-Cotto showdown, which is also for the newly created World Boxing Council Diamond Belt, is already a guaranteed blockbuster with only a few $750 and $1000 tickets available.

There is a posibility Manny Paquaio will fight Miguel Cotto this November 09 in Madison Square Garden

Promoter Bob Arum said on Saturday night he would like to see Manny Pacquiao face Floyd Mayweather Jr., and the Filipino’s next likely opponent would be Puerto Rican puncher Miguel Cotto sometime in November or December with New York as venue.

Miguel Cotto will have a homecourt advantage in New York because all the people outside Puerto Rico resides here about 99.9%. I'll guarantee Fat Joe and Jennifer Lopez gon be in da buildin on da big day.

If the Cotto match do happen, this will be good news to all Filipinos in the East Coast of the USA, who will not have to make a long trip to Las Vegas, the new Mecca of boxing, as well boxing fans all over the globe.

The Pacqauio-Cotto fight will be an excellent product for Top Rank to produce and the fans will love it. It is a neccesity for Top Rank to make this happen and make boxing exciting again.

I wrote in my earlier blog about Miguel Cotto althought this is a Manny Pacqauio zone because he is one of my favorate boxer too, but i will have to go with Manny again on this match.

Its nice to hear Boboy Fernandez, Manny Pacqauio's trainer instructing Manny in Bisaya (Filipino) at to hit the body a couple of times then follow up upstairs with an uppercut with filipino language. Finally this bisaya/filipino dude made it to the Big Dance in Boxing. I dubbed the Battle of the East and West as Bruce "Manny" Lee vs Chuck "Rickey" Norkis. Just a joke. Credits to Top Rank Boxing and Golden Boy promotion for matching the best boxers of the world and givng enjoyment to boxing fans.

Ricky should have watch this video and watch the slides and then the sureball (left hand bomb that this bisaya/filipino dudes were talking about in the video cause this was demonstated in the May 2 2009 match with Ricky Hatton. Manny is known to knockout boxers with his left hand bomb. I guest its to late.

peace out

There have been kidnap threats on his children

It is written into Philippine law that the army will go to Pacquiao's aid if his family is in danger.

He is a close friend of President Gloria Arroyo, and was visited by Bill Clinton this week

He trains for his fights up until one day before he goes into the ring

In 14 years as a professional, Pacquiao has won world titles in four weight divisions – from 7st 8lb to 9st 9lb, at flyweight, super bantamweight, super featherweight and lightweight. He has also fought at the 10st 7lb limit.

In a Time magazine online poll to find the 100 most influential people of 2009, Pacquiao has so far garnered more than 20 million votes.

His early life was spent living in a shanty town, sleeping on cardboard boxes.

In 1990, he witnessed James 'Buster' Douglas defeat the seemingly invincible Mike Tyson in Tokyo – Pacquiao's first encounter with boxing, which led him to dream of a career in the ring.

He made his first punchbag out of a cardboard box stuffed with clothes

He has worked as a gardener and construction worker, and sold donuts and iced water on the streets.

He turned professional at 17, and became a rising star on a televised weekly boxing show in the Philippines called Blow by Blow.

Since 2001 only four of Pacquiao's 18 fights have taken place in his native country, with half of them in Vegas, the world's fight capital.

He has a Jack Russell terrier - with whom he shares the nickname 'Pacman'. The dog comes with him on training runs. When he was younger, his pet dog was cooked and eaten by a friend of his father’s.

Cortez was covered in controversy for the way he handled Hatton's clash against Floyd Mayweather junior who knocked out the Hitman in the 10th round.

But Kenny Bayliss, who handled Hatton's last win against Paulie Malignaggi, will officiate on Saturday night.

Meanwhile all tickets have been sold and promoters are now arranging venues up and down the Strip to screen the bout on closed circuit TV.

Hatton will be backed by thousands of his fans inside the MGM Garden Arena on Saturday night.

Dad Ray, his manager, revealed: "We've sold almost 10,000 tickets back home in Manchester and the travel agent has had to delay his arrival here to deal with everything.

"We've asked our agents in Las Vegas to organise CCTV sales until he gets here."

Hatton is good for Vegas business with around 20,000 tickets for CCTV coverage available from one end of the Strip to the other, generating around £7million alone

MANILA, Philippines – Two boxing analysts believe Manny Pacquiao has enough in his arsenal to bring down Ricky Hatton in their May 2 superfight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Michael Koncz, Pacquiao’s Top Rank coordinator, and Matchroom Sports Ltd. Managing director Eddie Hearn said in a 24 Oras report that they chose Pacquiao based on the reigning World Boxing Council (WBC) lightweight champion’s skills. Koncz said Pacquiao’s speed would again be a factor in the match. "Manny’s hand speed is faster than Hatton, but more importantly, Manny’s ring presence is better. Hatton is a one-dimensional fighter, and he is going to come straight forward. And Manny is maturing as a boxer," Koncz said.

Hearn, meanwhile, believes Pacquiao will try to tire International Boxing Organization (IBO) welterweight title holder Hatton. "Hatton will come forward, come forward, and Manny will pick him off and soak him up. (By) eight, nine, 10 rounds when Ricky is tired that is when Manny’s strength really comes through," Hearn said. "That is when he’ll push him on the back ropes and I’m not sure Ricky will going to take more." Hearn expects an exciting match between the two fighters. "Both fighters have huge hearts, huge courage, and huge talent," he said. "They will both come forward and be aggressive. Both fighters will never give in." With the fight still three months away, Pacquiao is savoring his time with his family and friends before plunging into another eight weeks of hard training to prepare for his megabout against Hatton. Pacquiao is expected to begin training at Freddie Roach’s Wild Card Gym in Las Vegas in March

Im so excited for the May 2, 2009 " The Battle of East and West "boxing main event in Las Vegas

Freddie Roach in Cebu, Philippines with a fan

How many rounds is this gonna last? I would say this one will end early. You have 2 boxers who are friends outside the ring but with bad intentions to knock each other out after the sound of the bell. Both fighter are agressive and will not gonna use up all 12 rounds and let the judges decide. Manny can afford to use up all the rounds but Hatton needs to convince the judges with a KO. No way the judges gonna give this to Hatton winning without a knockout because Manny got to this title after defeating all the best boxers from Mexico. We all know Mexico aint shit, Mexico is a boxing power house, son.

Who do i pick? without a doubt, I pick Manny Pacquaio because we have the same hometown. If you look at his boxing records, it says he is fighting out of General Santos Mindanao but his family is from Pinamungahan, Cebu. When i visited the town
people were saying he is a very strongman also he is a very kind person. He give money to the people in his hometown. My uncle in New York has a group of doctors who performs medical mission annually to perform operations to the needy in the Phippines wrote to Manny and Manny never responded. Maybe its because he is busy at the moment with fight coming up. Hes busy with training, press conference the business involve with his May 2, 2009 affair.

After hearing that he was a very strongman, that validates in investing $100 on Manny. This is my last in investing with Manny because i dont want to be a part of the Maywether match if there is any beacause Manny could loss to Floyd via judges decison. Floyd cant knock Manny out because Manny is strong, Floyd strategy involves using up the ring efficiently dancing around and getting a decision victory out of Manny. Thats the reason I dont want to be a part of it.

Last week my friend tried to hustle me. He said is Mike Tyson fighing soon. He then said he will pay me double if Hatton wins and i have to bet on Hatton. Should i accept his offer?
