Disappointed with the Result

Manny Pacquiao won over Marquez via unanimous decision.

My husband went home yesterday after watching the live telecast of Pacquiao-Marquez third boxing match at the clubhouse but not like the previous fights, he did not asked me to open the television and watch the delayed telecast of the fight, he was not even happy to inform me that Pacquiao won.  He said he was disappointed with the fight and the result.

After watching the news and reading comments of boxing fans on the internet, I learned that my husband is not alone in his disappointment.

Well, that's the sport called boxing.  Like any other sports which requires judges to determine the winner, the issue of human error, negligence, favoritism or whatever you call it will always be present in every match.  But can we blame the judges? ... at their place, they see what we might have not seen and they might have not seen what we have seen ... so in boxing it would be better for a boxer to knock his opponent out so that all these doubts will be erased.

For Manny Pacquiao, win or loose, I'm still proud of him.  He have done a lot to put the Philippines in the spotlight and besides whatever the decision was, he has nothing to do with it.

    Yes its true, just that other dont accept the decision. But they make their own criticism. Another celebration for the Filipino people.
