BRING THE FIGHT TO THE BAY AREA OR SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA IN LOS ANGELES, I GUARANTEE WE WILL COME.


Oh yeah, Manny Pacquiao fought Velasquez at the Staples center in Los Angeles. What was the Pinoy turnout? It was around 3000 out of 10,000 fans according to my cousin who went to the fight. Unlike Vegas, there's nothing to do in Texas. We all know Filipinos love to gamble, and Filipinos from around the country travel to Las Vegas to gamble. If this fight were in Vegas, then there would've been a higher turnout of Filipinos.


Plus this wasnt a huge fight against Velasquez like Pacmans fights with Morales. I was at their 3rd fight in Vegas, Huge Filipino/Mexican environment.

People should go to the Cotto fight. Maybe they can get Pacquiao, the true lb 4 lb, as a bonus feature. The Mexican closet fans of Pacquiao should really come out now. Stop hating the man for beating your countrymen.



Pacquiao was flooded with warm beer during his ring entrance perhaps because Mexican boxing fans did not really believe he deserved to be in the main event. They knew it was going to be a boring and one-sided fight, and hence showed their disgust by hurling beer at Pacquiao.


That's really an overstatement Heroe. The truth is the Mexicans was throwing their warm beer like Corona, Tecate in exchange for a cold and crisp San Miguel beer. The Mexicans were shouting wala kang katulad Manny!!!
