Ode to Manny

Pacman singing his heart out in Cids Bar Makati even after losing the fight with Morales in 2005

Manny Pacquiao lost to Timothy Bradly through a controversial-split decision win  a few hours ago.  Many people contested the decision of the judges. I was one of them.  But I won’t rant about how foul the results were.  There are enough blogs and analysis about it in Google. The question is: How does Manny cope from the loss?

In 2005, after Manny Pacquiao’s loss to  Erik Morales because of a Head Butt- he was bleeding  profusely, couldn’t see, couldn’t fight Morales well- he  went to a bar with Mrs. Jinkee and entourage, drank a couple of beers,  sang his favorite songs, and had a great time.

Today’s post- loss: Based from several tv interviews, he says that it’s a test of faith (read here).  He said no matter how much he knew he won the fight 100%,  it’s still God’s will. God has a purpose for him. And instead of going to a bar, have a couple of drinks, sing karaoke, Pacquiao says in an interview with the Buzz  that he is taking his family  to Israel, and pay homage to the Lord.

Because of this, Manny deserves a bigger applause! We are proud of you, Manny! Keep the faith!
