The People’s Champ was Taken to the Hospital

MANILA, Philippines – World boxing champion Manny Pacquiao was taken to a hospital on Sunday for a stomach ailment, but his lawyer said it was not serious and that he would likely be out the next day.

Pacquiao, who was recently elected as a legislator, was taken to a suburban hospital in Manila after feeling pains in his stomach, said lawyer Jesus Gacal.

“It was just his usual acid reflux. The doctor told me there is nothing to worry about,” Gacal told AFP.

“There was even no need for him to be confined but he wanted to take a rest after the (election) campaign,” the lawyer added.

He said Pacquiao had suffered from this stomach problem before.

The 31-year-old fighter, who was elected on May 10 to represent the impoverished southern province of Sarangani, has been preparing to take up his post in the Philippine parliament.

Boxing promoters are also working to arrange a bout between Pacquiao and American Floyd Mayweather in November, to settle once and for all the fighters’ claim to be the best fighter, pound-for-pound, of his generation.

Pacquiao has said he can handle the simultaneous burdens of being a legislator and training for a major fight, remarking that this required only proper “time management.”

Boxing victories as well as his commercial endorsements last year made Pacquiao the world’s sixth-highest paid athlete, with earnings of 40 million US dollars, according to Forbes magazine. (read more on AFP and Yahoo Philippines News!)

Pacquiao – Mayweather jr. Closer with Cotto’s Refusal

manny "pacman" pacquiao Last Tuesday May 19,2009, uerto Rican newspaper, Primera Hora, that he would not fight pound-for-pound king Manny Pacquiao at a weight below 145 pounds, a declaration that, if he sticks to it, seems to all but negate the possibility of the two men ever fighting each other.

Despite the public’s clamoring for Pacquiao to fight the returning Floyd Mayweather Jr. later this year, Bob Arum of Top Rank, who promotes both Pacquiao and Cotto, has been pushing this potential Pac Man/Cotto matchup in the press since Pacman defeated Ricky Hatton in two rounds earlier this month.The weight issue, though, looks to be a major stumbling block. Where Manny’s team was willing to take a gamble at 147 pounds to face the aging Oscar De La Hoya, now it insists Pacquiao stay in the 140-pound zone, especially if he is going to step in there with a welterweight monster like Cotto. Clearly, they feel that with Manny’s star power growing by the day, they have the juice to dictate the terms to anyone who wants to face the Pac Man Express.

One of Pacquiao’s advisers, Michael Koncz, said as much recently to The Philippine Star: “It’s really up to Manny at what weight he’d like to fight Cotto, if at all … Manny might want to bring it down to 142 … This fight would mean more to Cotto than to Manny. If a limit of 142 is agreed, let Cotto struggle to make weight, not Manny.”

Manny Pacquiao’s last fight is slated for October

Nilinaw ng boxing champ na si Manny Pacquiao ang binitiwan niyang statement na magre-retire na siya sa boxing kapag naging pulitiko na siya.

 ”Actually, sabi nga ng mama ko, magretiro [na ako sa boxing]… Dapat hindi na ako lalaban ulit. Sabi ko, puwede pa siguro ako lumaban isang beses,” lahad ni Manny, na binigyan ulit ng victory party dito sa Pilipinas ng isa sa mga advisers niya, si former Ilocos Sur Governor Luis “Chavit” Singson.

Sayang naman kung magreretire na si Pacquiao, wala ng mapapanood ang mga pinoy na magandang boxing fight.

Who’s richer, Willie Revillame or Manny Pacquiao?


Luxury cars, vacation houses, a yacht – seems like everything is just within Wowowee host Willie Revillame’s reach. Could it be that he’s got more in the bank than boxing champ Manny Pacquiao?

“Mahirap i-compare ang money ko kay Manny kasi ang pera ni Manny ay million dollars ‘yan,” Willie explained. “Ako kasi, akala lang mayaman ako kasi mahilig lang akong bumili ng kotseng mamahalin. Pero lahat ng ito pinag-iipunan ko para makabili.”

Its hard to compare them. For me I believe that they are both rich. Rich not just because of money but also rich in different aspects.

Manny or Willie, who got more billions?

2milionaireManny Pacquiao’s destruction of Ricky Hatton brings once more the unresolved issue who is richer between him and “Wowowee” host Willie Revillame. When it comes to net worth, will he also destroy Will, Willie’s new official nickname. That’s probably easy to figure out. Manny earns in mostly in US dollars while Will in Philippine Peso.

Manny earned an estimated P580 million in his win over Ricky. That’s US$2 million or P50 million per minute for the entirety of the match. Manny earned the amount in one day but involving many days of preparation. According to experts, Manny is now comparable to Muhammad Ali as an all-time boxing great. With all the money he had earned in boxing,  Read more…
