Great night at the fights last Saturday. Some notes I mentally took while there.

-Missed the Bautista fight because I foolishly though his fight would take place before Viloria.

-some people sitting next to me felt insulted when they saw words on the philippine flag. it just seem disrespectful to them. i guess you don't degrade or ulter the national symbol.

-alfonzo gomez of the contender sat a couple rows in front me. doesn't seem that different as on tv.

-kingsley ikke is huge! and a middleweight! wow

-undertaker must've been neverous because he kept walking around the arena. he was also is vanes' corner as well

-freddie raoch didn't even bother to stay for vanes' clear decsion win. luckly viloria ended it quick so freddie could properly warm up pacquiao.

-manny's song sounded much better live than on tv. maybe in a future fight the BEPs can do it live!

-a fight broke out during the morales-raheem fight. i was told it was between mexicans and a few black (raheem) fans. cops ran there quickly and nothing major happened.

-as proballey seen on tv there was an afterparty with team pacquiao in a upscale restuarant near LA. still many fans showed up and manny signed everything!!

-at the party, manny seemed like a deer in headlights wakling around from group to group signning pictures and anything anyone had on. he signed jeans polos shirts. etc. manny groupies, ever heard of buying the pacquiao shirt? at least they got to meet him

-manny's now a proud owner of the new Jordan dub-zeros! he adds that along with the flint grey jordan s he got last march.

-and finally the best for las. THE SHERIFF WAS IN TOWN. that's right, the sheriff was as much a part of team pacquiao as many one you saw with manny on tv. he was at the weigh in and had a credential for the fight. he was his usual driver role (hey he doesn't have to follow traffic laws). still a very nice guy to us and seemed not to get into manny's way too much, he just drove!

i guess that's my long winded double trouble notes. ohh yeah did i mention all the mexicans lost on a TOP RANK show in LA? makes you respect boxing more huh?

who won the brawl between the raheem fans and the mexican fans? Its LA...mexicans and blacks do not get along.

Glad to see there was no fights between filipinos and mexicans. I would think that the Contreras story made everyone cooler heads. That was a great show of unity between the 2 communities.

It did occur before the Viloria fight bro. I'm kinda confused now.
