How will Pacquiao win against dela hoya???

The most awaited fight of the year is cemented and starting to gather voluminous comments and analysis.

The Golden Boy Oscar Dela Hoya the six time world boxing champ against Manny Pacquiao, four time world champion and currently the world’s best pound for pound fighter.

Now how can Pacquiao win in the fight of his life.

First he must be at his best form and complete mind set for the bout.

Pacquiao’s best is really something that Dela Hoya would not want because it has been proven in the past that if the Pacman fights in his best element he is very dangerous and capable of an upset against the highly favored bigger and more experience foe.

His mindset must into the fight. He lose to future Hall of Famer Erik “El Terrible” Morales in their fight bout because of obvious over confident thinking that Morales was for easy picking. When they clashed, Morales turn out to be the best his opponent so far that time he had met which eventually resulted to his last defeat.

When they had their rematch and eventually their third battle, the pacman was much prepared and had put his mind into it. It resulted to convincing fashion victory.

Another advantage for Pacquiao in his upcoming dela hoya bout is his tremendous hand speed and youth.

It goes with saying that he quicker than dela hoya which is his answer to the five inches reach advantage of his opponent.

Move around him and try to go inside.

This can be done because he is much younger at 29 compared to dela hoya’s 35 summers.

Pacquiao  should go to the body in the early rounds to weaken the dela hoya’s body and hope that he will bring down his defenses to open for head hunting.

It is in the latter rounds that pacman will have a chance to win by knockout or points if he will be able to out box dela hoya which i must advice to be his aim.

Pacquiao should also listen to Freddie Roach’s game plan and practice it and perform to perfection during the bout.

Remember that Roach, a two-time trainer of the year awardee, knows how dela hoya fight by like the palm of his hand having handled and was at his corner when he fought the former world pound for pound best boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr though it was a defeat.

Roach have a clear idea on what is dela hoya’s strength and weaknesses. He will surely impart that all to Manny.

Another is for Pacquiao to start finding much bigger sparing mates.

For him to feel the power of the legitimate welter weight and middle weight fighters.

Their punchers are much harder.

Last is for pacman to ask for guidance from the lord.

Pacquiao vs dela hoya:Pacquiao self distracting again?????

The much hype and mega bout of boxing superstar and legend Oscar Dela Hoya and boxing most exciting and current boxing’s best pound for pound Manny is taking a new twist.

Aside from the boxing bout, Pacquiao is again hot this time in his political plans as he was recently sworn in as Kampi member, a political party of the Philippine President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo.

The new political development in Pacquiao’s case again put added distraction to Manny even tough he immediately shrugged off.

Obviously there is and will be distractions again.

His training will surely be affected.

Why? because he had open again an avenue for people from all ways of life, all with different interest to approached him.

His obvious interest in politics will force him to bend and give attention to people not related to his upcoming mutli million fight.

Pacquiao is already the under dog and will be hard press to win in this bout and still find another distraction.

Dela Hoya or more popular as the golden boy will put everything on the line in this bout so expect him to give his all.

Beside the recent betting in the world’s gambling capital, La Vegas, show that he is the clear winner as of the moment.

Will the bettors put their hard earn dollars just in exchange for nothing.

Pacquiao should connect now with his world famous trainer freddie roach.

Roach had always been very honest and straight forward in his comment for Pacquiao be it in his favor and against him because of his concern to his prized catch ward.

Pacquiao admitted that he will be in for the fight of life. he should show signs and start proving it.

Forget for now politics, it will not help but deter his slim chances.

think after he hang his golden gloves.

For now concentrate on boxing because it is where he made a name for himself and currently on top of the world.

Going to historic Bessang Pass in Ilocos Sur, Philippines

Glimpse of Bessang Pass Trip

It was almost noon under the scorching heat of the sun, I and two good friends on top of our respectively motorbikes, transversed the more than 60 kilometers Suyo- Cervantes Road to go the famous Bessang Pass Shrine in Malaya, Cervantes, Ilocos Sur.

The area is very historic and significant part of Philippine history as it is the site where 3, 400 people perished.

It led to the conquering of the Japanese Imperial Force under General Tomoyuki Yamashita by the combine United State Army Force in Philippines and Filipino Soldiers.

As American soldiers admitted as “it is one of the most terrible and incredibly difficult battle of the entire World War II”.

The photographs were taken as we proceeded and when we go down at about two o’clock in the afternoon.

The more than one hour trip going up and equally the same time going down was worth every moment because of the rare experience to be too close to nature and appreciate its beauty.
