Pacquiao camp denies Instagram ‘challenge’

MANILA, DECEMBER 1, 2014 (MANILA TIMES) by JOSEF T. RAMOS - MIKE Koncz, adviser of Manny Pacquiao denied on Tuesday that Pacman uploaded a photo in Instagram challenging Floyd Mayweather Jr. to a fight—a supposed response to the unbeaten American’s Internet taunts.

The said Instagram photo account under the name “emmanuelpacquiao” recently posted a picture of Pacquiao and Chris Algieri with a caption: “Stop throwing punches on Instagram and let’s get in the ring!” It has a hashtag #TBE #TheBestExcuses—in response to Mayweather’s TBE that means “The Best Ever.”

“We and Manny [Pacquiao] have no time to answer Mayweather’s childish act,” Koncz, told The Manila Times in a phone interview. “Manny wanted to fight him, but he didn’t like to fight.”

In a related development, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) announced that is willing to give millions of dollars so that the Pacquiao-Mayweather mega bout would finally push through.

Boxing executive M. Akbar Muhammad, one of the principals of a UAE group, has made an offer of $110 million— so far the largest purse in the history of boxing —to make the fight happen in the middle of 2015.

“I’ve been instructed by the group to do whatever it takes to bring this long-awaited and eagerly anticipated fight to fruition,” Muhammad told boxing website boxingscene.com. “There’s absolutely no doubt that each fighter, individually, will receive more money than any other boxer has in the past. The combined purses offered are approaching $200 million,” he added. “And, rest assured, we have the resources to do just that.”

“In addition to receiving a record-setting purse, Mayweather Promotions, LLC will be the lead promoter of the event and a partner with the investment group,” added Muhammad.

Meanwhile, Pacquiao’s Mexican archrival Juan Manuel Marquez has also joined the clamor for the Pacquiao-Mayweather mega fight to happen. “As a fan I think the fight should get done and they need to stop the bickering over who wants to earn more than the other,” Marquez told boxingscene.com. “The most important thing is that the fight is carried out and that both of them stop talking about nonsense and give the fans what they want—the fight.”

“First thing they need to make this fight to make clear who is who.”

Sam Watson: Floyd Mayweather Jr. wants Manny Pacquiao ‘real bad’ December 1, 2014

Floyd Mayweather Jr. wants a fight with Manny Pacquiao “real bad,” according to Sam Watson, right-hand man to Mayweather’s adviser, Al Haymon.

“Floyd wants to fight him real bad. Floyd, that’s all he talks about is fighting Manny Pacquiao,” said Watson during a video interview on FightHype.com in the wake of reports of ongoing serious talk at high levels regarding the potential for Mayweather-Pacquiao. “So once the deal is set and done, you’ll see the biggest fight you ever saw in your life. I believe there’s going to be two fights.”

Pacquiao (57-5-2, 38 knockouts) is coming off a unanimous decision over previously undefeated Chris Algieri, whom he floored six times during a Nov. 22 fight on HBO Pay-Per-View.

“He beat [Algieri] up real bad. He whipped on that boy. He’s back to being Manny Pacquiao. That makes the fight great for Floyd. Floyd wants him to be at his best,” said Watson.

“Everybody thought that he had slowed down. He didn’t slow down. Floyd’s got the best defense. Floyd’s the smartest fighter out there. Floyd’s my best friend in the world. So I can’t wait until that fight happens.”

Mayweather (47-0, 26 KOs) is currently aligned with Showtime, having fought four of six bouts stipulated by a multi-million dollar agreement he signed with the network and its parent company, CBS Corporation.

Coming off consecutive decisions over Marcos Maidana by majority decision in May and unanimous decision in September, Mayweather’s next fight is slated for May 2.

According to the Los Angeles Times, officials from Showtime and HBO have discussed a joint venture between the networks similar to that which facilitated the fight between undisputed heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis and Mike Tyson in June 2002. Lewis scored an eighth-round stoppage victory over Tyson in the bout.

Lewis and Tyson were affiliated with HBO and Showtime, respectively, at the time.

“This is the biggest fight ever. … Tyson and (Evander) Holyfield was big, Tyson and Lennox Lewis was big, Mayweather and Canelo (Alvarez) was big, but this would be the biggest fight ever. Ever,” said Watson.

“Everybody wants to see Floyd lose. They want to see Floyd lose to Pacquiao. Floyd is ready, Floyd wants it. Floyd asks me every day. Floyd says, ‘I want that fight, Sam. I want him.’ Now he’s speaking out on it, and I hope that he gets it.”

Pacquiao hinted at his desire to make the fight in a humorous commercial for Foot Locker, then called Mayweather out after the win over Algieri.

Pacquiao turns 36 on December 17, and Mayweather turns 38 in February.

“It’s going to be a great fight. Pacquiao’s going to hit him too. Pacquiao’s going to hit him just like (Miguel) Cotto hit him,” said Watson, referring to Mayweather’s unanimous-decision over Cotto in May 2012.

“It’s going to be a real fight. Ain’t no fight easy. At this stage, no fight is easy. That’s why they fight for millions and millions of dollars. And Floyd loves spending money, so Floyd is gonna fight his ass off.”

Marquez picks Mayweather over Pacquiao, calls for megabout By Alder Almo (philstar.com) | Updated December 2, 2014 - 12:48pm 75 3045 googleplus0 1

Juan Manuel Marquez sees Floyd Mayweather Jr. defeating Manny Pacquiao in a superfight. File photo MANILA, Philippines – Manny Pacquiao's fiercest rival Juan Manuel Marquez has joined the growing clamor for Floyd Mayweather Jr. to stake his perfect record against the Filipino ring icon.

Marquez told ESPN Deportes' Salvador Rodriguez last weekend that Mayweather has nothing to worry since he would win if ever both camps find the middle ground to stage the super fight.

"As a fan, I think the fight should be done and stop the bickering, and the talk of who wants to earn more than the other, and vice versa. The most important thing here is that the fight should be done and stop this nonsense talking and give the fans what they want and make it clear who is who," Marquez told the ESPN Spanish website.

Marquez has fought both fighters and based on his experience, he believes Mayweather will likely win the super fight on points.

"For me, Mayweather is not a puncher. He's best in defense, and he's very fast. That's what hurts Pacquiao. He handles punches very well and has a good timing, which are important and can be very harmful to Pacquiao's weapon," the Mexican boxer said.

Marquez, who lost to Mayweather on points in 2009 but knocked Pacquiao out cold in the sixth round of their fourth meeting three years later, thinks that the super fight will go the distance.

"He (Floyd) would win not by knockout but on points, but he would need to see the speed and power of Pacquiao. Although we know that defensively Mayweather is the best in the world, he is listed as the best pound for pound," Marquez said.

Marquez, from a fan’s standpoint, said that it will be a great robbery if the super fight will not happen.

"If that fight is not reached, it would be bad for boxing. The important thing is to be carried out and show who's who, stop the talk and put to work for the good of boxing and fans," Marquez said.

MANILA, Philippines – Manny Pacquiao welcomed his arch-rival Juan Manuel Marquez joining the growing clamor for Floyd Mayweather, Jr. to finally fight him.

Marquez told ESPN Deportes over the weekend that both camps should stop the non-sense talks and get the fight down. The Mexican counter-puncher, who dealt Pacquiao his worst loss in his career but bowed to Mayweather on points, believes though that the undefeated American fighter would prevail.

Pacquiao is growing tired of all these speculative talks about the super fight.

Speaking to Philstar.com after his Kia Sorento ended their playoffs hopes in the PBA with a tough 99-93 loss to the Meralco Bolts, Pacquiao has nothing more to say than just wait for Mayweather's camp to finally agree to a fight.

"Kailangan matuloy muna ang fight na yan. Kasi paano pag-uusapan kung sino ang mananalo kung yung mismong laban, hindi pa nakakasa (The fight should be scheduled first. How can we talk about on who will win if there is no fight in the first place)," Pacquiao said on Marquez’s prediction.

Mayweather continued mocking Pacquiao on social media and the Filipino ring icon has grown tired and shot back with an Instagram post of his own.

A business group from the Middle East has reportedly came up with $110 million as initial fund to make the super fight happen but Mayweather has been silent.

And Pacquiao seems to be losing hope.

"Kailangan muna lumaban siya. Kaso ayaw naman niya. (He needs to fight me first. But the problem is he doesn't want to fight me)," Pacquiao said.

MANILA, Philippines - Meralco cut short Manny Pacquiao’s initial foray in pro basketball as the Bolts survived a second-half breakdown and eventually eased out Kia Motors, 99-93, in the PBA Philippine Cup at the Smart Araneta Coliseum last night.

Cliff Hodge rifled in 10 of his 17 points in the fourth quarter and Mark Macapagal fired all his 10 markers in the last six minutes of play as Meralco blew a 22-point bulge but recovered in time to clinch its fifth win against the same number of losses

With the crucial victory, the Bolts stayed in the fight for the Top Six and at the same time gave idle NLEX (3-7) a free ride into the quarterfinals.

Pacquiao and the Sorento bowed out of the race for the next phase of the all-Filipino tourney as they reeled with a ninth straight loss after a triumphant season debut against fellow PBA newcomer Blackwater.

Kia and NLEX play a non-bearing game Sunday also at the Big Dome. Going to that game, Pacquiao holds a 1-2 record as the Sorento playing coach.

The boxing icon saw action for the second time last night, getting two rebounds against two missed three-pointers, one turnover and one foul in six minutes and a half.

Kia was trailing by 17 at 6-23 before Pacquiao decided he had played enough.

The Sorento fell behind by as many as 22, 41-63, later on before Reil Cervantes, Eliud Poligrates, Hyram Bagatsing, Kyle Pascual and Hans Thiele got the team going and Kia stormed ahead at 72-71.

The Sorento sustained a good ride until a a contested call by the refs stopped their momentum early in the fourth.

Talk n Text simply refused to lose in a dogfight with Purefoods Star, carving out a 100-96 win in overtime to safely make the Top Six later in the night.

The Texters fought big plays for big plays and big shots for big shots, and hacked out the win that assured them as well as idle Barangay Ginebra of a twice-to-beat incentive in the quarterfinals.

“It’s always tough to play Purefoods and so we’re happy we pulled through in this game,” said Talk n Text coach Jong Uichico. “They’re used to playing this kind of game. They keep their poise and they’re so disciplined. That’s why it’s hard to play Purefoods in a close game.”

“They went up by three (81-78). And at that point, there’s the possibility we could lose,” said Meralco coach Norman Black of the scare put up by Kia.

“The game was a story of two halves. In the first half, we played very well. In the second half, we forgot to play. Maybe, until the last six minutes,” Black also said.

Largely behind Macapagal and Hodge, the Bolts regained momentum on a 14-2 attack that made it 92-83 for Meralco.

“At one point, I told the players either we let this go, as we’d really messed it up, or we compose ourselves and win the game. They responded well although it’s still a struggle in the stretch,” said Black.

“At this point, our season is a roller coasterride to say the least. But I take the win and I’m happy with it,” Black also said.

Macapagal drained two treys and two free throws to help spark their decisive endgame run.

Earlier, Jared Dillinger, John Wilson and Gary David provided the firepower as the Bolts dominated the first half. Dillinger led all scorers with 25 points while Wilson and David, just back from a bout with flu, combined for 21.

The Bolts carved out the important win minus injured players Reynel Hugnatan, Simon Atkins and Anjo Caram.

The scores:

First Game

Meralco 99 – Dillinger 25, Hodge 17, Anthony 14, Wilson 11, David 10, Macapagal 8, Morrison 4, Cortez 3, Ferriols 3, Ildefonso 2, Sena 2, Buenafe 0, Guevarra 0.

Kia 93 – Cervantes 18, Poligrates 11, Revilla 10, Bagatsing 10, Thiele 9, Alvarez 8, Pascual 8, Dehesa 7, Custodio 6, Webb 4, Burtscher 3, Pacquiao 0, Buensuceso 0.

Quarterscores: 34-19; 60-39; 73-72; 99-93

Pacquiao to spend P295M to build worship house in General Santos Aquiles Z. Zonio

GENERAL SANTOS CITY, Philippines – World champion and Sarangani Representative Manny Pacquiao has formally announced that he has set aside around P295 million ($US6.7 million) out of his earnings from boxing for the construction of a house of worship here.

Pacquiao, a born again Christian, told the Philippine Daily Inquirer that the five-hectare lot alone, on which, the church would rise would cost P95 million.

“I owe to God everything that I have right now – wealth, health, fame, success, a dutiful and beautiful wife and my wonderful children. I have to give it back to Him. The amount is nothing compared to what God has done to my life,” Pacquiao said in the vernacular.

Pacquiao said building the worship house would be his way of glorifying and thanking God.

“We came into this world bare and naked. In our final rendezvous with the Great Beyond, we can bring nothing,” Pacquiao added.

According to Rey Cortez, project engineer, two hectares of the five-hectare lot will be devoted for the church two-storey building and an annex. The total cost of the project would be around P200 million, he said.

The two-story building, Cortez said, would serve as the main worship area while the annex building will house the Bible school, Bible study room, a pastor’s lounge and commercial offices.

“We target to finish the project within an 18-month period. But he asked us to expedite the construction so it can be used by December 2015. I think the two-story main building will be finished and will be ready for use by then,” Cortez said.

Pacquiao is currently renting the entire third floor of the Maduramente building here for church service every Sunday.

He said spreading the Word of God would be among his jobs after his retirement from boxing.

“The Words of God strengthened my faith and protected me from evil. That’s why I always bring and read my Bible,” Pacquiao said.

“Aside from my legacy in boxing and politics, I want to leave something more important and special – a legacy of faith and a House of God. This one is much, much more self-fulfilling than my achievements in boxing and politics,” the Filipino boxing superstar said.

MANILA, Philippines –”I drink, I womanize, I gamble,” boxing champion Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao said of his sinful past before he discovered and embraced the Evangelical Christian church.

Pacquiao went to the Court of Appeals to preach at the Christmas party of Christian employees of the appeals court.

Those who were able to attend the event told INQUIRER.net that Pacquiao recalled the days when he thought that going to church three times a week and praying fives time daily were enough to make him a “godly person.”

“I drink, I womanize, nagsusugal ako (I gamble). Hindi ako nahihiya (I felt no shame then). Yan ang buhay ko noon (That has been my life). Ako pala ay hindi godly person (I realized that I can’t call myself godly person). I only know God,” Pacquiao was quoted as saying.

But now, Pacquiao said the Bible is his manual for righteous living. He said he was taught to follow the commandments and understand God’s will.

The get-together initially was exclusive to Born Again Christian employees of the Court of Appeals, but eventually they allowed other employees of various religious beliefs to attend the gathering.

However, members of the media were barred from attending the assembly because it was supposed to be exclusive to two media organizations only.

MANNY WITH MAKATI MAYOR JUNJUN BINAYPhoto by Noy Morcoso/INQUIRER.net

MANILA, Philippines–It may be more than a year to go but 2016 is looking like a target for one of Manny Pacquiao’s jabs.

During a press conference at the Hotel Intercontinental in Makati City Thursday noon, Pacquiao said he was considering running for a position in 2016 but he first wanted to focus on the task at hand as the congressman of Sarangani province.

“I’m considering it, 2016, but it’s still too far away,” Pacquiao said after his victory parade with Makati Mayor Junjun Binay. “My decision, though, is not yet final if I will run for a national position.”

Boxing’s only eight-division World Champion was welcomed in Makati by Vice President Jejomar Binay and his son Junjun after Pacquiao’s triumphant defense of the World Boxing Organization Welterweight Championship against Chris Algieri last Sunday.

Vice President Binay earlier said he was courting Pacquiao to run as senator under his United Nationalist Alliance.

Pacquiao on Thursday said he would first concentrate on the matter at hand and not the near future.

“I must fulfill my responsibilities as a congressman, as a boxer and as a family man.”

Afterwards, the Binays accompanied Pacquiao in a 30-minute motorcade along Ayala Avenue, JP Rizal Street, Gil Puyat Avenue and Chino Roces Avenue.

Thousands of cheering fans lined the streets to see the world champion.
