    Pacquiao knocks out Solis to keep title

    San Antonio, TX (Sports Network) - Manny Pacquiao retained his international WBC super featherweight title with an eighth-round knockout of Jorge Solis.

    Pacquiao (44-3-2, 35 KOs), a congressional candidate in the Philippines, dominated most of the bout and ended it by flooring his Mexican opponent twice in the eighth round.

    Solis (32-1-2), in his first world title fight, couldn't keep up with the fast pace of "Pacman" Pacquiao.

    Solis used a stunning right to the face in the fifth round, and Pacquiao sustained a cut above his left eye via a head butt. The cut was noticeably deep in the sixth and blood was trickling from near the left eye, but Pacquiao continued to pound away, and Solis was pushed to the canvas.

    Solis landed a strong uppercut, but Pacquiao dominated the sixth round. The Filipino star continued to wince in pain from the cut near his eye in the seventh, but kept landing jabs and forcing Solis to retreat.

    Pacquiao's aggressive boxing paid off in the opening minute of round eight, when he sent Solis to the canvas with a right uppercut. Pacquiao then used a solid left to floor Solis again, and referee Vic Drakulich counted out Solis at the 1:16 mark.

    Eeeerrrr ,sorry to all the avid ,die hard fans of Manny Pacqiao.I tell you people,I am SICK of him ! He can flaunt himself with his Philippine boxing celebrity status and be loved by people forever.But his current involvement and ambitions getting into politics ,as a CONGRESSMAN? That made me like to puke.His mentality of just only a High school graduate,how can his brains tackle to understand the mind boggling issues in this country.His intentions might be honest ,but sadly his educational background is a great disadavantage in making better decisions for this country to propel.In his position he can easily be manipulated by the big conning BUWAYAS (crocodiles),the trapos and hell bent corrupt ones that had already established their positions and dynasties long in Philippine politics.Looking at his face... geeeeee.He will be better off leaving and dying himself as a known beloved boxer representing the filipino people rather than an added political puppet and failure for this country!

    I think he is more likely motivated with greed and selfishness ,riding on in the edge of his growing popularity , rather than honestly to serve the people.If he will be the next Philippines president, I think the PI will nose dive to hell!:mad: :mad: :mad: :mad:

    manny pacquiao and politics

    I do not think it is his (Manny Pacquiao's) educational background that is important for his future "political career". I believe that is one's desire to serve and one's true intentions for the country that counts.

    I have never knew Manny's background and profile, though, and more I can not say about his political ambitions.

    But I am afraid that the rest of the political aspirants who have unpure intentions (whom pickled_newt called Buwayas) who will form a party with Pacquaio will gain votes thru Pacquiao's name.

    I don't agree with Manny's decision to join politics either. However, it's his life and he can do whatever he wants to do. I just hope that IF he wins, he'll do good things to the people who believed in him. If not, boxing is his forte not politics so he should stick to what he's good at.

    About Manny getting involved with politics : well yes he is not the best guy to get into this stuff! but he has a right to have an opinion, but he is probably being manipulated by other parties, and is only a front man as he is popular with the people, well doesn't every politician do that? also have a look at the Presidents you have voted for in the past? THEY ARE ALL CORRUPT. Even the one you got now is not too bright. Film stars??? yeah vote them in! thats the trouble with the phils its not what you know its who you know and you got to be a celebrity, like USA... Swarzenegger??? what a joke!...So do not knock Manny, he is only in it for the poplularity but who is behind him? that more worrying. For me the best President you had, and he was not sqeaky clean, but for me it was Ramos, I could see he was genuine, or at least TRYING. And He did achieve alot in a short time, I think he should have stayed a bit longer. For me the phils is dogged by one thing, Filipinos cannot look at the problems head on and deal with them, they tend to dodge, ignore, sidestep, go over the top, underneath, ANYTHING but face the problems. A lack of will, thats why corruption is winning. OK thats my rant over.

    I have mentioned the same line of argument about Manny in my initial post , succeeding people's posts basically agrees the main point. This is the starting move by some politicians using his popularity .

    Manny himself should have known his very limitations accordingly being aware of his very limited educational level ,to handle Congressional office .He has not achieved any obvious track record of public service ,at least as a civil servant or a respectable barrio captain .

    It’s the obvious of the most obvious that he is manipulated,with no argument most people here agree with it .But can people allow such to happen ,let it go reluctantly with no cares, only because of sincere,kind self respect of Manny Pacqiao’s personal interest to help . But is he capable ? It doesn't only need overwhelming charisma ,goodness and sincerity ,but intellectual capabilities . He's physical punches are extraordinary , but not sure about his brains in making HIGH PROFILE DECISIONS esp for his countrymen.I mentioned this before,although his intentions perhaps are right but he will certainly be used up for the interest on the few .

    And for PhilT ,I am not mocking about Manny Pacqiao . I am rather only more realistic and concerned.Anybody who comes out into the limelight of politics ( as you should be aware of it ) has to face up public scrutiny of their private lives ,including the candidates’ capabilities and limitations to take up such big role and responsibilities they are about to be elected for. You should have known that ,LMAO .This is NOT entirely about the life of M .Pacquiao and his personal life’s decision, that I am making fuzz about .This is concerning significant issues that will affect the fate of the majority Filipino people in the long term scenario .I am a Filipino PhilT , so I think I am entitled to join many discerning Filipinos who are deeply concerned about this trend.

    Everything is all predictable in Philippine politics. Foreseeably ,next to being a congressman ,Manny P. will be tossed up to the Senate post by the next election and eventually as Presidential Candidate . Any MASA popular candidate will have big edge of winning . Because majority of the masa .The maj of masses never question ,they all agree ,they love celebrity stars as presidents ,senators and what have you .... Having a high school educated president, he’ll be in Malacanang as figurative hallow entity,just as a nodding puppet. Who will be signing/ agreeing to new laws & govt policies in favour of the few mega elites' interests .

    I have more respect for Manny Pacqiao if he was contented for humble role to begin with ,like as counsellor for his district or even as MAYOR,but thinking big as a CONGRESSMAN ? d*mn,he knew his limitations, let's be realistic ,he must be aware that he is being used up ,and he is riding on it too.I think that is an act of stupidity and selfishness ,at the cost of the majority of the filipinos .



    For you PhilT ,a person living your good life in Britain ,never share the tears and blood and sufferings of many Filipinos should minimize at least those rantings.Because, whatever happens to the Philippines comes to worse ,you will remain either in Britain or retire in a diff country to continue enjoying your good life. You’ll never partake the pains we all have here.People like you should never plan to live in the Philippines, honestly. Your whinings is an added insult to injury .:rolleyes::confused:
