Filipino Reporter Exclusive

As Manny Pacquiao steps on boxing scales with seeming abandon for size disparities, you have to wonder if — at 150 pounds — “The Pacman” is close to biting off more than he can chew.

DALLAS — Manny Pacquiao’s trainer Freddie Roach questioned his fighter’s dedication to boxing in recent weeks following a training camp that was more chaotic than usual, he told Reuters on Tuesday.
Pacquiao (51-3-2, 38 KOs), who takes on Mexico’s Antonio Margarito (38-6, 27 KOs) Saturday (Sunday in Manila) in Cowboys Stadium in Texas for the vacant WBA super welterweight belt, is known for being heavily involved in extra-curricular activities.

SAN FRANCISCO — It was a night to remember for baseball fans. For the first time since the Giants moved to San Francisco in 1954, they became world champions.
Filipino fans joined the tens of thousands who flocked in front of the City Hall Monday night to root for their team against the Texas Rangers.
Game 5 of the World Series may have been held in Texas, but Giants fans in San Francisco felt victory was within reach.

MANILA — No matter the outcome of his fight against Antonio Margarito this weekend, Manny Pacquiao will continue to be recognized as WBO welterweight champion, it was disclosed yesterday by Filipino boxing referee and judge Danrex Tapdasan who attended the governing body’s annual convention in Colombia recently.
Pacquiao is moving up in weight to battle Margarito for the vacant WBC superwelterweight crown at the Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, this Saturday night (Sunday morning, Manila). Win or lose, the Filipino ring icon will stay on the WBO throne.

DALLAS — This former world champion knows a good matchup when he sees one.
Saturday’s fight between Manny Pacquiao and Antonio Margarito, to him, is far from being a good one.
“I don’t see the fight going past three rounds,” said Gerry Peñalosa, the crafty Filipino fighter who just recently announced his retirement from boxing.
