It's Independence Day and most Filipinos and boxing fans of the world still can not get over the pay-per-view robbery committed against Manny Pacquiao.
An American boxing Youtube commentator, Bigragu, has apologized "for the awful judging and "hometown" Bullsh*t. I am embarrassed for my country from a boxing standpoint."
Conrado De Quiros gets away with "F-ked" as his column title today. "This was in-your-face shoving the dirty finger and saying “F–k you.” In the face not just of us Filipinos but of boxing itself, in the face of those who elevated the game from savageness to human striving, from primitiveness to art."
At least GMA robbed our country of the presidency in the dead of night, and orchestrated that midnight appointment of Chief Justice Corona with only a handful of people present. The crooks in Las Vegas robbed the boxing world blind in pay-per-view, in arenas, in public squares, in cinemas, in multimedia, and yes, before "the thousands in attendance, and the millions watching around the world." I hear you Michael Buffer. I'm not saying GMA and Corona are decent cheats. I'm saying, the western world sucks as much. But that's another story.
Manny, hang those gloves. Don't renew your contract with Top Rank. You know who screwed you. Don't dignify this travesty with a rematch.
