HOLLYWOOD – Manny Pacquiao is calling on Gerry Peñalosa to hang up his gloves.
Pacquiao took it with a heavy heart after watching his dear friend drop a one-sided contest against reigning WBO super-bantamweight champion Juan Manuel Lopez Friday evening in the latter’s hometown in Puerto Rico.
“I felt so uneasy as early as the first round. My hands were sweating,” said Pacquiao as he emerged from the bedroom of his posh La Palazzo apartment where he caught a live coverage of the fight.
I think Manny Pacquiao wants to protect Gerry’s dignity as a friend and an avid fan. Sure enough, Manny is right, there’s nothing to prove, because we all know that Gerry is great.
