Pacman makes us Filipinos proud

Manny "Pacman" Pacquaio has done it again!

The man from very humble origins has made millions of Filipinos in the world (including me) proud yet again. In a devastating show of boxing prowess, Pacman destroyed his long-time nemesis, Mexican legend Erik 'El Terrible" Morales in the 3rd round of their much-anticipated 3rd fight in Las Vegas last Saturday.

The fight, aptly billed "The Grand Finale" was the 3rd battle between Pacman and El Terrible; the first two fights were fought like gladiators and were split between them. This time around, there was no doubting who was the better boxer; Pacman attacked from the first round, knocked Morales in the 2nd with his trade mark left hook and finished the fight with a devastating combination of punches in the 3rd.

A few months back, Manny also signed a multi-million contract with Nike, making him the first boxer to be endorsed by Nike, putting him the ranks of other Nike-sponsored athletes like Lebron, Kobe, Ronaldinho, etc.

For everything he has done on and off the ring, Pacman is a source of national pride amongst Filipinos.

I salute you Pacman! You make me proud of being a Filipino!
