Pacman did it again!

*Warning: Some images are graphic*

We were prepared for the much-anticipated "Battle of East and West". I took out my Starbucks Mocha Frappucino coffee from the ref and Jeff, his bottle of Budweisser while sharing bags of Tortilla Chips dipped in Salsa con Queso. We were literally camping out in our living room while waiting for the main event of the night, our very own "People's Champ", Manny Pacquiao going against the "Britt Hitman" Ricky Hatton in MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada. Of course, it was just Jeff and me watching the fight but, man, I'm sure it sounded like a whole gang when I started howling, screaming at the top of my lungs, hooting, clapping, and literally jumping up and down out of my seat when Pacquiao unleashed a powerful left hook that knocked Hatton down in Round 2. To be honest, I didn't expect it to be that easy and quick. I've wanted our Filipino champion to win but I've also expected a tough fight considering how good his boxing opponent was. We paid 50 bucks to watch it on Pay Per View and the fight was over in less than 6 minutes, lol! Nevertheless, I'm sure all Filipinos who have watched the show live in Vegas as well as those who watched it on Pay per view didn't mind the quick bout, so long as the result is our champion being triumphant in the end. Manny Pacquiao is the world's greatest fighter in this generation and I'm so proud of him for giving honor to our country once again. Congratulations, Pacquiao! You're the best!!!
