Spent the Sunday morning, cold and all, at my brother's place watching the BIG BIG BOXING match!
Aiyar- i've never been a real boxing fan really. Still am not, really, except i do like Manny the Pacman Pacquiao. Bro introduced me to him last year before his last big fight with Hammon, and though i did hear about his fight with Cotto in the news i didn't expect that we'd be able to catch it on HBO pay per view this time.
We arrived early this morning for blueberry pancakes and scrambled eggs while bro screened the 24/7 pre-match build up docu-show about the 2 boxers (which he got from god knows where? HBO probably). Help set the context and give you an inside look into their pre-match preparations. How could you not feel for Manny who was training in Philippines with the backdrop of the typhoon and floods which hit Phillippines? I was set to cheer on Manny, anyway he fellow Asian what (plus i have a whee lil crush on his coach- heh)!
But wahliao- the guy is a fighter lah. He was amazing..although i still don't understand why people would box. I think a boxer's IQ drops 5 points everytime he steps into the ring and get his head boxed in. =(
but good to watch. poor cotto kena beat up teruk man! he was bleeding all over the ring. my sis-in-law kept squealing everytime blood squirted across the screen. Match lasted 11 rounds. And the referee stopped the match on a technical knock-out cos poor Cotto looked like his head was going to get pummelled off. Aiyor these people and their pride, i'd have been on my knees begging for mercy in the first round- "tolong, tolong jangan pukul saya lagi!" (imagine saying that in a puerto-rican accent, hahahah)
Now that Manny has won Cotto, the fans want him to fight Mayweather. cool- looking forward to that- bro said he'd throw a big big party for that fight.
