Pacquiao-vs-Mayweather Set on May 3, 2015 (Manila Time)

>> Saturday, February 21, 2015

Finally, it has been set. ESPN reported what all Filipino boxing fans have been waiting for.

The Manny Pacquiao - Floyd Mayweather fight is set on May 3, 2015 (Manila Time) as confirmed via Mayweather's post in the social media app, Shots.

In this post, Mayweather shared a photo containing signatures with the caption that both fighters have signed the fight contract.

I wish that Manny Pacquiao will train as hard as ever.

I wish that he take a leave of absence from Congress and the PBA.

I wish that he will do everything to make this fight exciting and end up with a win.

Go, Manny!


Kobe Paras Saves My Sports Weekend

>> Sunday, February 1, 2015

Kobe Paras could very well be the first Filipino to play in the NBA.

And that realization more than made up for my gloomy sports weekend.

My sports week consisted of the following not-so-fun results:

  • Roger Federer losing in the third round of the 2015 Australian Open
  • Tiger Woods missing the cut in his first tournament of the year.
  • Brgy. Ginebra Gin Kings continue to not living up to their potential

But this Kobe Paras dunk during a recent game more than made up for those.

And with this dunk, I have high hopes that Kobe Paras could very well be the first Filipino NBA Player.


Maria Sharapova in Manila

>> Saturday, November 29, 2014

My girlfriend and I was channel-hopping late last night when we chanced upon a tennis match coverage of Channel 23 that featured Maria Sharapova here in Manila.

I thought the venue was somewhere out of the country but to my amazement, it was at the Mall of Asia (MOA) Arena in Pasay City. At least to me, the camera angle made the tennis court seemed like at some other stadiums abroad.

Anyway, Maria Sharapova was great in TV. And the fans at the venue were treated with a come-from-behind 1 set win over Kristina (I forgot the surname) 6-5.

It was only an exhibition match made more interesting by a shot clock for serving and the annoying buzzer signifying nearing the time limit or its expiration.

Maria Sharapova's acknowledgement of the warm welcome she, and the rest of the players who were part of the exhibition, received sound sincere. And I felt that the gesture will surely endear her more to Filipinos.

The exhibition tennis match is part of the International Premier Tennis League (ITPL) . I learned more about ITPL via
