While I was having my nails done yesterday over at my parents’ house, I could hear my cousins’ cheers and boos as Marquez and Pacquaio fight over the WBO crown. I was not able to follow the whole fight as I was too busy with my own thing but I could sense that they were not happy about the majority decision that the 3 judges declared and that is remaining Manny Pacquaio still the World Boxing Organization Welterweight Champ!
Whatever debates and controversy that this fight has brought to many Filipinos, this still marked and gave another great achievement to our country. Kudos Manny Pacquaio! You’ve just made us proud again!
Oh and by the way, I also vouch Maria Aragon for singing Lupang Hinirang, the Philippines National Anthem confidently. It may not be as perfect as how others sung our National Anthem but you still made me proud knowing that Tagalog was not your everyday language.
