We were at Monte Vista yesterday, June 29, 2008 to celebrate my tito's birthday. It was a fun day though the weather was a bit gloomy. Arrived there are aroung 9:30 am and was surprised to see that they were showing the Pacquiao-Diaz bout live on Pay-Per-View. There were a group of people huddled infront of the makeshift white screen that beams the fight live from Vegas and they are eagerly waiting for the main event. I myself was excited since I was not expecting that the resort would air the fight (at least i saved around 3hundred pesos... :D)
I wrote in my previous article that I would not miss the fight since Pacquiao shoots for his 4th world title in 4 different weight classes. I was expecting at least a Unanimous Decision in favor of Pacquiao but never a KO. Until round 9 came and Pacman ended Diaz's reign as lightweight champ. And ALaS! I lost a hundred bucks on a winner take all friendly bet with some officemates on predicting what round Diaz would be knocked out. Though I lost, I am still happy since another Filipino has shown the world that showcases the Philippines are home to great talents and is not just about Corruption and Dirty politics.
