I started writing about the NBA finals between the Lakers and the Celtics in my blog and now that it is over I feel like I need to write something about another sport that I like to watch. Boxing, and the upcoming match between Pacquiao and Diaz is something that I am waiting for.
I have been reading a lot of articles about this fight (thanks to www.mannypacquiao.ph and www.philboxing.com) and I can say that the stakes are much higher for Pacquiao. Why? Because he is going to take a shot at a historic event by being the only Asian, (pinoy to that matter) to become a 4 weight division champion. I know some of you might ask, what the heck or would even comment that I don't like boxing, errr but even if you don't know about boxing and you don't like to watch it, this is something I am proud of since I am like Pacquiao, to say the least. (You know what I mean..)
The last match that Pacquiao had with Marquez, I watched it together with my Dad via the PAY PER VIEW in SM and to be honest my heart was pounding fast everytime I see Pacquiao gets hit with a counter punch from Marquez, maybe this is caused by too much caffeine that I get in the office but it gets me excited everytime I see Pacquiao step into the ring. I wanted to buy tickets for the Pacquiao vs. Diaz bout but I guess the timing is not right, I don't have the dineros to spend since I need to bring my Dad along with me and that would cost like Php 1000 just for the 2 of us.
I'll just watch it delayed :( and I will definitely turn my cellphone off so that party poopers will not spoil the day. If I can just watch it for free via the web ( I know there is something out there....) I'd definitely to do that.
June 29th will be another bonding moment for the whole family because we are sure to watch this blockbuster. I am a pinoy obviously and I am rooting for Pacquiao to win this match when he fights Diaz on the 29th, it is history in the making and I definitely wouldn't miss it for the world.
