Pacquiao shows heart
By Ronnie Nathanielsz

International Boxing Federation junior featherweight champion Manny Pacquiao, who showed he had the strong heart of a ring gladiator when he annihilated the legendary Marco Antonio Barrera, the featherweight king, last Wednesday showed that his heart also possessed a soft and noble side.

Following a thunderous ovation he received at the start of Game 2 of the PBA Reinforced Conference semifinals between Talk N Text and Coca-Cola at the Philsports Arena where he was presented with a beautiful silver plaque of recognition by Commissioner Noli Eala, Pacquiao motored to Cainta, Rizal to visit his former trainer Eling Alberto, one of the best in the business, who was recovering from a stroke he suffered some time ago.

Pacquiao was mobbed by people from all walks of life in the Cainta subdivision home of Alberto as friends and neighbors shouted his name and jostled to get a glimpse of the country’s latest and most exciting sports hero amidst shouts of “Idol, Idol.”

The champion and his trainer, who was seated on a wheelchair, embraced over and over again and it was obvious that Alberto had to fight back the tears at the sight of the world champion to whom he once taught the rudiments of boxing. Pacquiao and his mentor exchanged memories of the early days as the 24-year-old southpaw recalled the lessons he had learned which he still uses to get the better of opponents like Barrera.

Pacquiao, with a smile across his face, said Alberto had helped him strengthen his forearms and taught him some great defensive tactics in the ring and how to throw devastating punches. The two even threw a couple of jabs at each other to the delight of the crowd.

Pacquiao quietly delved into his pocket when inside the house and handed Alberto some money which he hoped would help buy the maintenance medicines the trainer needed even as he promised to visit him again when he returns from his hometown of General Santos City.

THIS GOES TO SHOW HOW HUMBLE AND HOW GREAT OUR CHAMPION IS !

Well-meaningful voters might vote for him....but in these days, who can decide who is the patriot and the *****?

Is it MP who might be leaving a very lucrative endeavour that places him in the pedestal of modern boxing history?

Or is it the voters who from time to time have been the victims of smart politics or smart politicians who thrive on promises and graft?

Bottom line, MP's decision does not sit well in the boxing world and the plain masa.

I wonder if the same can be said if MP would enter politics when he is retired from boxing when his looked upon as hero and pride of our race. Alas, this thing won't happen for the simple reason....matigas ang ulo ni MP. :biglaugh:
