The photographer had every right to be on the apron after the fight was declared finished. Just what part of "credentialed journalist" you folks don't understand? As a reference, just watch the Donaire vs. Arce fight (or any fight for that matter) again and observe the cameramen/photographers on the apron after the knockout when the fight was declared over. Unlike in the da Pilipens where the rule of law takes a back seat while they make up one on the fly for convenience, the US is very particular when it comes to the law. Even if the "credentialed journalist" had no right to be on that apron (not likely) after the fight was "concluded", you can't just manhandle him just because you're pissed off. Not even law enforcement officers can do that without dire consequences. Speaking of which, did you see any of the authorities or officials manhandle that photographer? What does that tell you? It's a straight out "assault and battery" (without provocation) here in the US. Like I said, one would get away with it in da Pilipens (believe me, I have) especially when one is considered "privileged" or "untouchable"; not in the good ol' US of A, I'm afraid. Some say it was just a push (even though the evidence shows Baboy executing a kick and went after his victim by going outside the ring threshhold onto the ring apron). It doesn't matter even if it was only a mere "nudge". The fact of the matter is that there was malice (i.e. intention to do harm) and a consequential physical contact; they constitute "assault and battery" in the U.S. (perhaps not in da Pilipens). Even just touching somebody with apparent malice (physical harm, sexual gratification, etc.) is considered "battery". Heck, people get in trouble by just making verbal threats alone without physical contact.
Baboy and Kuntz were behaving like spoiled brats; they think they're above everything else (especially the law) like they usually are when they're in da Pilipens. The course of action taken by the NSAC is in order but it doesn't end here. I don't think the photographer is done. The next move his counsel would likely make is to formally file a criminal complaint with the law enforcement authorities in the jurisdiction where the incident occurred which would then pave the way and reinforce/support a civil complaint seeking restitution (pun intended since Baboy's first name is "Restituto") for physical, emotional, psychological, punitive and other damages deemed appropriate.
BTW, the dude in the light grey suit seems to be involved and threateningly pointing at the photographer on the fourth photo of a series of five images in the middle of this article:http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/boxing/manny-pacquiao-aides-allegedly-attacked-photographer-brutal-knockout-005405170--box.html
Wakee Salud and "Blow-Blow" Pac knew better and did the right thing -- staying out of the way and not getting involved in the altercation:
