We told you so, Comrades, last Friday. Mabuhay, Lolo Bobby In a message dated 5/6/2011 9:00:45 A.M. Pacific Daylight Time, writes: Hi, Dido: Thanks for your insight. Here is what I posted on the Facebook: "To Photojournalist Andy Edralin. RE Pacquiao fight, don't worry. As the L.A. Times said, 'At 39, Mosley isn't likely to win against a younger, faster foe.' Unless, of course he uses his cane or walker in hitting the Pacman. I won't buy the Pay-TV coverage, as it will be a dull fight. Mosley will be a punching bag & there's no thrill in seeing a boxer who ought to be in a retirement home do a multimillion-dollar fight. It's again a 'Lutong Macao' bout. & Mosley is the one being cooked. :-)" As pundits put it, "boxers are really old at 35." And Mosley is four years past that line. And one year of professional boxing is equal to about 4 years or more of doing sports like golf or baseball. Boxing is tougher on the body than football (NFL). This is why many boxers fight only two to three times a year. Mosley has been a boxer since age 16 (at the Golden Gloves competition). The toll on his body makes him react like a 65-years-old guy, fit to collect SSI from Social Security. Pacquiao has less-than 3 years to go before he becomes also an "old man" in the ring. It seems that the Pacman does not know when to quit, as he is always chasing the limelight and more fame, if not also skirts. There oughtta be a law mandating that two opposing boxers be represented by two different boxing promoters. As usual, Bob Arum is the "Lagareng Hapon" of a boxing promoter. He makes a killing from the purses of both boxers. But it seems that for all his advanced age and accusation of senility, Mosley is still wiser than Pacquiao. Mosley is paying Arum only 10% as promoter's fee while Arum gets 30% of Pacquiao's purse. Perhaps Congressman Manny should use the title that I suggested for then Vice President Noli de Castro's book. I suggested the title, "Noli Me Tangangere." LOL. My prediction? The winner is Bob Arum. Other winners are the IRS and the Las Vegas casinos. Mosley is not the only loser. The bigger losers are those who will pay $54.95 to watch a senior-citizen-like boxer try to outlast an opponent who is in his prime. :-) The fight will be Mosley, oops, mostly cheek-to-cheek dancing, holding, clinching and grabbing, with Shane melting like sugar and trying to keep his record as a boxer who has never been knocked out. So, "enjoy" the fight, "Suckers" (with due respect to all). Mabuhay, Lolo Bobby M. Reyes
