Remember when Shane Mosley just could not deal with Vernon Forest and Winky Wright? Pacquiao, if he gets by Bradley, should avoid Juan Manuel Marquez at all costs. Time to just move on when someone has your number. Manny really did not deserve the win in any of their fights.

Pacquiao the stinking liar. He swore he did not have an affair with Krista Ranillo. She admitted it later on. If Manny lies to Jinkee, do stupid Pactards think he cares about them?

Bruce Lee smashes Manny’s legs, takes his eyeballs out, then destroys him! Manny can’t get out of the way of telegraphed punches. Some forget that Margarito made Manny piss blood after the fight.

While many have speculated as to whether or not Manny Pacquiao has truly conceded to all of Floyd Mayweather’s terms, his adviser, Michael Koncz, recently confirmed that they have not agreed to the random blood and urine drug tests that Mayweather wants prior to all of his fights. “Yeah, well we agreed to, in the past, random testing as long as when we get tested, he gets tested, up to 14 days,” Koncz revealed in an interview with FightHype’s own Ben Thompson, making it clear that they’re still asking for a cut-off date some time during the weeks prior to the bout. “We’re not going to test on the day of the fight. I’m not going to sit here and tell you yes, we’ll agree to do tests that day or not, but What we’ve done in the past, we’ve agreed to give blood immediately after the fight, but then the problem is the commission told us that they won’t do that because it’s not sterile in the dressing rooms. Will we give blood 5 days, 7 days before the fight? You know, that’s something I have to talk to Manny about, but we have nothing to hide. I certainly can tell you we will not give any type of blood on the day of the fight,” Koncz continued.

TO ALL THOSE WHO ARE NOT BLIND TO SEE THAT PACQUIAO’S LEGACY IS AGAINST PAID OFF BUMS AND BADLY DAMAGED HAS BEENS, GO TO FORUMS AND POST THE REAL TRUTH WHY PACQUIAO REFUSED BLOOD TESTING AGAINST MAYWEATHER—————————————————————-as I have been personally told by Pacquiao’s personal physician, a graduate of the very respected University of Santo Tomas, the oldest university in Asia… PACQUIAO IS AND NEVER WAS ON P.E.D. That Pacquiao was sternly advised by his political party and advisers to STAY AWAY FROM MAYWEATHER BEFORE THE ELECTIONS OF MAY 2010 AND USE MAYWEATHER’S DEMAND TO BACK OUT OF THE FIGHT. Even Arum, who went here early 2010 to personally talk to Pacquiao and was telling ABS-CBN and GMA news media that Pacquiao should not dilly dally with Mayweathere and should take this opportunity as Mayweather is so slippery to deal with, but soon thereafter Bob Arum realized he was up against PACQUIAO’S PERSONAL POLITICAL ASPIRATIONS and Pacquiao is ready to quit boxing to pursue his POLITICAL CAREER. Pacquiao will NOT LOSE AGAIN as this was the second time Pacquiao ran for office as he lost the first time against a solid congressional candidate in his hometown that is why PACQUIAO CHANGED RESIDENCE AND RUN AGAINST A LESSER OPPONENT AND MAKE SURE HE DOESN’T LOSE HIS ELECTIONS (similar to how he does in boxing after Marquez). Pacquiao’s political advisers WARNED PACQUIAO THAT IF HE LOSES TO MAYWEATHER, and his political advisers are SMARTER AND MORE INTELLIGENT THAN ALL OF BOXING, as they know Mayweather can and will beat Pacquiao so IT IS A MUST TO AVOID MAYWEATHER or Pacquiao will LOSE AGAIN A SECOND TIME IN HIS CAMPAIGN FOR POLITICAL SEAT…………………. ALL OF YOU IDIOTIC IDIOTS, SPECIALLY YOU S REDMOND CAN GIVE YOUR STUPID ASSESSMENTS BUT WHAT YOU WILL NEVER ACCEPT AND WILL TRY TO AVOID IS THE TRUTH THAT I DIVULGE BECAUSE YOU KNOW, DEEP WITHIN YOU, THAT IT IS TRUE AND IT WILL SURELY HURT PACQUIAO’S FAKE MADE UP, LIP SYNCHING BRITNEY SPEARS LIKE LEGACY

Pacquiao looks like he’s starting to slow down as a fighter By Robert Brown: After the May 7th 2011 mega hyped bout against Sugar Shane Mosley, which fizzled out to an anti-climatic and unsatisfying result, it is clear to me, even though Manny Pacquiao coasted to an easy victory against an extremely defensive and often retreating Sugar Shane Mosley, that Pacquiao’s prime has officially passed him by.

For those of you who jump to question this statement all you have to do is look at the trend, and the trend is that Pacquiao has been getting hit more consistently in his most recent fights than he ever had been during his entire career with Freddie Roach, excluding the Hatton fight of course, which is nearly impossible to compare as it only lasted 1 ¾ rounds.

Pacquiao, more noticeably in his fight against Mosley, was unable to throw multiple combinations in consistent bursts like he had done in the past. Some people will say that this was due to the defensive mindset Mosley took into the fight, and I somewhat agree with this. Mosley’s attitude was in part a reason why Pacquiao was not able to dominate in the way he and his team would have liked, however I do believe there is more involved.

Mosley’s style was turning Pacquiao around, making him lunge and reach for his punches, more than any other time in the past five or six years. And an even more worrying factor for Pacquiao was that Mosley was able to easily slip and dodge so many of Pacquiao’s punches, even though Mosley is not considered a great defensive fighter, compared with Mayweather for example, who is a master of defense. I believe Mayweather will be able to turn Pacquiao around and pick him apart fairly easily.

Manny has also appeared to have lost his killer instinct since the De La Hoya fight. Granted his bout with Clottey was destined to go the distance, as Clottey is a resilient fighter who has never been stopped, but in the Margarito fight he could have finished Margarito off, but he quite clearly eased off on the gas when he knew he had the points, and saw Margarito was getting battered which lost him the hunger for the ko.

Again in the Mosley fight there were several opportunities for Pacquiao to step on the gas and go for the kill, but it appeared, at least through my eyes, that Manny had too much respect for Mosley, and therefore passed up many of those opportunities. It wasn’t until Mosley was incorrectly credited with a knock down that Manny fired up and began to land some combinations, but by then the fight was basically over.

Now I’m a huge admirer and a fan of Manny Pacquiao, and of what he has accomplished in the ring over the past 5 ½ years, but I feel that unless Pacquiao can get his killer instinct back, the killer instinct he possessed during the De La Hoya and previous fights, and unless he can stop himself from being turned around in the ring, I’m afraid that the biggest fight of this generation “Mayweather Vs Pacquiao” could be yet another anti-climatic result At the moment from what I saw Mayweather wins easy u.d because if Moseley can turn him and slip his punches Mayweather certainly will, and he will counter with speed and accuracy.

Manny must work on these flaws an rediscover his desire for the ko for this fight to deliver up to and beyond expectations

• METRO: PACQUIAO GOES INCOGNITO IN QUEZON CITY COURT

METRO MANILA, March 15, 2006, (STAR) By Perseus Echeminada – Boxing idol Manny Pacquiao yesterday slipped into the Quezon City prosecutor’s office unnoticed by a horde of reporters who were waiting for him to appear at the court to answer a paternity suit filed by a 24-year-old woman who claimed that the boxing champ was the father of her baby boy.

Wearing big, dark glasses and oversized baseball cap, Pacquiao reportedly climbed the stairs of the Quezon City hall of justice unnoticed and went straight to the office of city assistant prosecutor Ma. Gracia Cadiz Casaclang to sign his counter affidavit.

“I was surprised to see him in my office,” Casaclang told reporters during the preliminary investigation held at noon yesterday.

Even court employees who were preparing for lunch did not notice Pacquiao.

The city prosecutor said she allowed Pacquiao to take his oath with his lawyer Jose Crisostomo but did not accept the documents Crisostomo officially submitted.

Lawyer Vic Rodriguez who accompanied his client, Joanne Rose Bacusa, and her two-year- old son said the more Pacquiao avoids confrontation with her client, the more the case will build up against him.

Bacusa for her part expressed disappointment over Pacquiao’s failure to show up at the preliminary investigation.

Earlier, Bacusa and her son went to the St. Luke’s Hospital to undergo DNA testing. However, doctors deferred the procedure pending the appearance of Pacquiao, which is a requirement for any paternity test.

The hospital visit was in response to Pacquiao’s earlier statement that he is willing to undergo DNA test to determine if he is really the father of the child.

The test did not proceed due to the hospital policy which requires both parents to be present during the blood sample gathering to preserve the integrity of the test.

“If respondent Pacquiao will honor and be faithful to his words befitting his lofty stature

If the auditing firm VisionQwest is correct in their latest press release, Manny Pacquiao has problems. VQ layed out a laundry list of financial problems. Everything from missing money, lack of financial records, under-reported PPV figures, tax problems, and relying on cash advances. Read the entire list of allegations HERE
When VisionQwest was initially brought in, they very successfully found a plethora of discrepancies with Manny’s money. In the latest VQ press release they stated that they themselves loaned money to Pacquiao and Koncz so that a house could be purchased for who? Michael Koncz? The first question that this writer has is, why would VisionQwest be loaning money to Manny Pacquiao for anything? Why would Manny need money lent to him in order to buy a house for Michael Koncz if he’s a multimillionaire?
There are several questions that have yet to be answered with this ongoing saga. Why is Manny Pacquiao having to rely on cash advances from Bob Arum? If it’s true, why would he need cash advances if he’s a multimillionaire? Why would Pacquiao fire VisionQwest and then not pay them a nickle for any of their services? This is another allegation that VisionQwest is making. They are saying that not only have they not received the money that they lent to Pacquiao so that he could buy Koncz a house, but they also have not received a penny for any of their work when they audited Manny’s accounts.
So here we go again, another questions. If Manny is a financially free multimillionaire, why has he not paid VisionQwest back any money? If all of these allegations by VisionQwest are all lies, then Manny Pacquiao should summon his attorney and file suit against them for defamation of character.
Why would Pacquiao fire VisionQwest after they completed most of their work only to hire a new company that does exactly the same kind of work? The questions just keep popping up, and it all stinks. Pacquiao is behaving like a man that has boxed himself into some sort of corner with little options to get out of it.
If it’s true that the IRS is knocking on Manny’s door, he won’t be able to throw those combinations and hope for a knockout Vs. them. He will need to pay up or pay a price. Manny’s a nice guy and he’s done so much great things for people all over the world.

“o The third round was particularly frustrating, since Arum and Pacquiao were up for a fight against Mayweather when it looked like a pending jail sentence would derail the bout. Their act was so convincing, Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Melissa Saragosa postponed Mayweather’s sentence, opening the way for the highly anticipated super-fight which would have been a tremendous boost to the city’s economy.

Then Arum and Pacquiao ran away from the negotiating table, trying to convince the world that Mayweather was, once again, at fault for the failed negotiations

“Floyd Mayweather Jr., The Pound 4 Pound King.
Floyd agreed to all of Manny Pacquiao’s demands from glove size, ring size, weight limit, 50-50 purse split and even agreed to Pacquiao’s $10 million dollar fine for every pound Mayweather weighs beyond the welterweight limit. All Mayweather asked for was Olympic style drug testing and that it had to be random, Pacquiao couldn’t give Mayweather that one stipulation and the fight was called off. People wrongfully accuse Mayweather of being a diva or wanting all the favors, but he bowed down to every single one of Manny Pacquiao’s requests, but Manny couldn’t even give Floyd one. There are only two reasons why someone wouldn’t comply to the tests, one; they are guilty or have something to hide, two; they are scared.

Manny Pacquiao is arguably the greatest prize fighter of all time, and with good cause. Manny Pacquiao’s answers and body language cannot be deciphered by what a person thinks he sees. Everyone has their own perception, and it’s ludicrous to think Manny is even remotely unsure. Trust me, I know the man better than most, and if there is someone qualified to read the man, it’s me. First off, I think it would appropriate to have a qualified translator to get Manny’s point across clearly. He occasionally has difficulty using the correct words to describe what he wants to get across. If he was explaining something in his native language, there would be no miscommunication in any way. Secondly, Timothy Bradley is trying to ruffle his own feathers by talking the talk, and posing like he’s always been confident that he could beat manny Pacquiao. He sure was singing a different song after their first fight. Bradley now beats an aging Marquez, and now he thinks he has the strategy and ability to beat a Manny Pacquiao that he sees as lacking in confidence and has lost his killer instinct. Fighters don’t lose their killer instinct. They lose their will to compete. Manny Pacquiao has lot neither. As a matter of fact, as I closely watch and study Manany Pacquiao, I see a Monster that is about to painfully destroy anyone, not just Timothy Bradley. Manny Pacquiao will begin his second reign of terror as readies himself to beat Bradley, Garcia, Porter, Broner, Canelo and Mikey Garcia. Do not underestimate a fighter of Manny Pacquiao’s ability and intelligence. If Ped Man Marquez wants another fight, please come on and bring that beat up, substance abused, fragile body to the table so that the ring legend, Manny Pacquiao ends your career for good. Floyd obviously wants no part of Manny, and once he sees Manny destroy Timothy Bradley, Mayweather will keep his phone off and doors locked. I took a glimpse of Manny’s sparring earlier, and I will tell you one thing right now. Manny will stop Bradley inside of 4 rounds or no later than 9. Ali, Duran, Robinson, Bruce Lee, Hulk Hogan, Leonard, Chavez, GSP or any other fighter beats manny Pacquiao when he is physically and mentally ready and focused, no one. Forget the cold that he had. Forget his age. Forget who’s in his camp. A few things you don’t forget about Manny Pacquiao is his extraordinary boxing skills. You don’t forget his God given natural power. You don’t forget what he is capable of doing. And you don’t forget that this fighting machine is one of a kind. He will do what everyone thinks he can’t do. Keep your eyes open on April 12 because Manny Pacquiao will defeat Timothy Bradley in a dramatic and stunning fashion. Once the fight is over, everyone will believe and agree that Manny Pacquiao should be considered the greatest fighting machine of all time. Don’t miss this fight. manny is going to do something special. Trust me on this. Manny is the best!

HECDOG, the performance by Manny Pacquiao vs Rios is an exact carbon copy of his performance vs David Diaz, both slow, come forward, face first sluggers, who cannot defend a jot.
If you are a true Pac fan you would remember his one and only dip into the Lightweight division. Manny had never been able to box like this against a real, bonafide boxer who can jab and move and defend. He knows he would be taken to school, and therefore he has to come forward and draw their leads and try to get his shots off from mid to close range exchanges.

Manny Pacquiao, arguably the greatest fighter of all time will have no mercy on Timothy Bradley this time around. Some of you must recall that Manny came back from the loss to Ped Man Marquez, took a year off and put on one of the greatest boxing clinics ever seen. No one had ever thought that Manny Pacquiao could reinvent himself from the greatest offensive fighting machine in boxing history to a graceful, agile, poetic boxer with a defensive mechanism that only technology could create. A master performance that no one expected. The crowd in attendance gasped in awe as they witnessed Manny Pacquiao turn boxing into an art of beauty. This is a man that no one thought could ever come back. Today, he continues adding to his legend at the famous Wild Card Gym. One sparring partner for Manny Pacquiao, Lydel Rhodes said after sparring the legend “I can’t see his punches coming.” This gives you an inside glance as to what Timothy Bradley will be up against. There are current rumors at the Wild Card gym that sparring partners for Manny have given orders to their trainers to actually yell out “Incoming” 5 seconds before Manny throws his punches. Manny Pacquiao is on fire right now, and he means business. I have been following Manny Pacquiao for awhile, and I can tell you with certainty that Timothy Bradley will be stopped before round 4 or no later than round 9. Forget what Manny seems like or what Timothy Bradley says, Manny is correct when he says “My time is not yet over.” Every great fighter has more in the tank than people know. We know of a handful of great fighters that have suffered bad defeats only to come back with devastating wins. This will be the case with Manny Pacquiao. He is a fighter that stands alone and a foot above any fighter that has ever stepped into the boxing ring. Most boxing observers and fans have seen only half of what Manny Pacquiao is capable of. Those that don’t like Manny Pacquiao are coming up with their wishful thinking as to why he won’t be the same. Mayweather and Ped Man Marquez are shaking in their shoes hoping Manny doesn’t win. They fear what monster has been let loose. The heart beat of Boxing is riding on Manny Pacquiao. More fans in the USA are pulling for Manny to win this fight than in the Philippines, and that speaks volumes about Manny Pacquiao’s popularity and the love people have for him. His current training in Los Angeles has set attendance records at Griffith Park from fans wanting to catch a glimpse of this warrior. The world will stop for a brief moment on April 12 because this is an event of epic proportions. Manny’s time is not finished yet, and he’s going to prove it on April 12, trust me on this. Manny is the best!

BRUCE LEE (cont’d)
Jeet Kune Do

The Jeet Kune Do emblem is a registered trademark held by the Bruce Lee Estate. The Chinese characters around the Taijitu symbol read: “Using no way as way” and “Having no limitation as limitation” The arrows represent the endless interaction between yang and yin.[45]
Main article: Jeet Kune Do
Jeet Kune Do originated in 1967. After filming one season of The Green Hornet, Lee found himself out of work and opened The Jun Fan Institute of Gung Fu. The controversial match with Wong Jack Man influenced Lee’s philosophy about martial arts. Lee concluded that the fight had lasted too long and that he had failed to live up to his potential using his Wing Chun techniques. He took the view that traditional martial arts techniques were too rigid and formalistic to be practical in scenarios of chaotic street fighting. Lee decided to develop a system with an emphasis on “practicality, flexibility, speed, and efficiency”. He started to use different methods of training such as weight training for strength, running for endurance, stretching for flexibility, and many others which he constantly adapted, including fencing and basic boxing techniques.
Lee emphasised what he called “the style of no style”. This consisted of getting rid of the formalised approach which Lee claimed was indicative of traditional styles. Lee felt the system he now called Jun Fan Gung Fu was even too restrictive, and eventually evolved into a philosophy and martial art he would come to call Jeet Kune Do or the Way of the Intercepting Fist. It is a term he would later regret, because Jeet Kune Do implied specific parameters that styles connote; whereas the idea of his martial art was to exist outside of parameters and limitations.[46]
Fitness and nutrition
Lee was renowned for his physical fitness and vigorous, dedicated fitness regimen to become as strong as he possibly could. After his match with Wong Jack Man in 1965, Lee changed his approach toward martial arts training. Lee felt that many martial artists of his time did not spend enough time on physical conditioning. Lee included all elements of total fitness—muscular strength, muscular endurance, cardiovascular endurance, and flexibility. He tried traditional bodybuilding techniques to build bulky muscles or mass. However, Lee was careful to admonish that mental and spiritual preparation was fundamental to the success of physical training in martial arts skills. In Tao of Jeet Kune Do, he wrote
Training is one of the most neglected phases of athletics. Too much time is given to the development of skill and too little to the development of the individual for participation. … JKD, ultimately is not a matter of petty techniques but of highly developed spirituality and physique.[47]
According to Linda Lee Cadwell, soon after he moved to the United States, Lee started to take nutrition seriously and developed an interest in health foods, high-protein drinks and vitamin and mineral supplements. He later concluded that in order to achieve a high-performance body, one could not fuel it with a diet of junk food, and with “the wrong fuel” one’s body would perform sluggishly or sloppily.[48] Lee also avoided baked goods and refined flour, describing them as providing calories which did nothing for his body.[49]

Bruce Lee was an actor… Name a well known fighter he faced!!!! Benny “The Jet” Urquidez tried to get Lee to fight, without success.

Pacquiao would knock Lee’s head off like he did Ricky Hatton’s.. Only Pacman would put Lee down and out harder and faster.. and his head would bounce higher off the canvas.

TARK talking bs again. Please read the many bits in the internet re Bruce Lee or any of the books and it will show up once again TARK’S lack of knowledge of martial arts as well as boxing.

Below is an except from Wikipedia on Bruce Lee:

BRUCE LEE

Bruce Lee (Chinese: 李小龍; born Lee Jun-fan, Chinese: 李振藩; 27 November 1940 – 20 July 1973) was a Hong Kong American martial artist, Hong Kong action film actor, martial arts instructor, filmmaker,[3] and the founder of Jeet Kune Do. Lee was the son of Cantonese opera star Lee Hoi-Chuen. He is widely considered by commentators, critics, media and other martial artists to be one of the most influential martial artists of all time,[4] and a pop culture icon of the 20th century.[5][6] He is often credited with helping to change the way Asians were presented in American films.[7]
The largest influence on Lee’s martial arts development was his study of Wing Chun. Lee began training in Wing Chun at the age of 13 under the Wing Chun teacher Yip Man in 1954, after losing a fight with rival gang members. Yip’s regular classes generally consisted of the forms practice, chi sao (sticking hands) drills, wooden dummy techniques, and free-sparring.[24] There was no set pattern to the classes.[24] Yip tried to keep his students from fighting in the street gangs of Hong Kong by encouraging them to fight in organized competitions.[25]
After a year into his Wing Chun training, most of Yip Man’s other students refused to train with Lee after they learned of his mixed ancestry, as the Chinese were generally against teaching their martial arts techniques to non-Asians.[26][27] Lee’s sparring partner, Hawkins Cheung states, “Probably fewer than six people in the whole Wing Chun clan were personally taught, or even partly taught, by Yip Man”.[28] However, Lee showed a keen interest in Wing Chun, and continued to train privately with Yip Man and Wong Shun Leung in 1955.[29]

After attending Tak Sun School (德信學校) (several blocks from his home at 218 Nathan Road, Kowloon), Lee entered the primary school division of La Salle College at the age of 12. In around 1956, due to poor academic performance (or possibly poor conduct as well), he was transferred to St. Francis Xavier’s College (high school) where he would be mentored by Brother Edward, a teacher and coach of the school boxing team.

Lee in 1958, dancing Cha-cha.
In the spring of 1959, Lee got into yet another street fight and the police were called.[30] Until his late teens, Lee’s street fights became more frequent and included beating the son of a feared triad family.[citation needed] Eventually, Lee’s father decided for him to leave Hong Kong to pursue a safer and healthier avenue in the United States. His parents confirmed the police’s fear that this time Lee’s opponent had an organised crime background, and there was the possibility that a contract was out for his life.
The police detective came and he says “Excuse me Mr. Lee, your son is really fighting bad in school. If he gets into just one more fight I might have to put him in jail”.
—Robert Lee[20]
Jun Fan Gung Fu
Lee began teaching martial arts in the United States in 1959. He called what he taught Jun Fan Gung Fu (literally Bruce Lee’s Kung Fu). It was basically his approach to Wing Chun.[34] Lee taught friends he met in Seattle, starting with Judo practitioner Jesse Glover, who continued to teach some of Lee’s early techniques. Taky Kimura became Lee’s first Assistant Instructor and continued to teach his art and philosophy after Lee’s death.[35] Lee opened his first martial arts school, named the Lee Jun Fan Gung Fu Institute, in Seattle.
Lee dropped out of college in the spring of 1964 and moved to Oakland to live with James Yimm Lee (嚴鏡海). James Lee was twenty years senior to Bruce Lee and a well known Chinese martial artist in the area. Together, they founded the second Jun Fan martial art studio in Oakland. James Lee was also responsible for introducing Bruce Lee to Ed Parker, American martial artist, and organizer of the Long Beach International Karate Championships at which Bruce Lee was later “discovered” by Hollywood.
Long Beach International Karate Championships
At the invitation of Ed Parker, Lee appeared in the 1964 Long Beach International Karate Championships[36] and performed repetitions of two-finger push-ups (using the thumb and the index finger of one hand) with feet at approximately a shoulder-width apart. In the same Long Beach event he also performed the “One inch punch”,[37] the description of which is as follows: Lee stood upright, his right foot forward with knees bent slightly, in front of a standing, stationary partner. Lee’s right arm was partly extended and his right fist approximately an inch away from the partner’s chest. Without retracting his right arm, Lee then forcibly delivered the punch to his partner while largely maintaining his posture, sending the partner backwards and falling into a chair said to be placed behind the partner to prevent injury, though his partner’s momentum soon caused him to fall to the floor. His volunteer was Bob Baker of Stockton, California. “I told Bruce not to do this type of demonstration again”, Baker recalled. “When he punched me that last time, I had to stay home from work because the pain in my chest was unbearable”.[38]
It was at the 1964 championships where Lee first met Taekwondo master Jhoon Goo Rhee. The two developed a friendship – a relationship from which they benefited as martial artists. Rhee taught Lee the side kick in detail, and Lee taught Rhee the “non-telegraphic” punch.[39]
Lee appeared at the 1967 Long Beach International Karate Championships and performed various demonstrations, including the famous “unstoppable punch” against USKA world Karate champion Vic Moore.[36] Lee told Moore that he was going to throw a straight punch to the face, and all he had to do was to try to block it. Lee took several steps back and asked if Moore was ready, when Moore nodded in affirmation, Lee glided towards him until he was within striking range. He then threw a straight punch directly at Moore’s face, and stopped before impact. In eight attempts, Moore failed to block any of the punches.[40][41]
Fight with Wong Jack Man
In Oakland, California in 1964 at Chinatown, Lee had a controversial private match with Wong Jack Man, a direct student of Ma Kin Fung known for his mastery of Xingyiquan, Northern Shaolin, and T’ai chi ch’uan. According to Lee, the Chinese community issued an ultimatum to him to stop teaching non-Chinese. When he refused to comply, he was challenged to a combat match with Wong. The arrangement was that if Lee lost, he would have to shut down his school; while if he won, then Lee would be free to teach Caucasians or anyone else.[42] Wong denied this, stating that he requested to fight Lee after Lee issued an open challenge during one of Lee’s demonstrations at a Chinatown theatre, and that Wong himself did not discriminate against Caucasians or other non-Chinese.[43] Lee commented, “That paper had all the names of the sifu from Chinatown, but they don’t scare me”.[44]
Individuals known to have witnessed the match included Cadwell, James Lee (Bruce Lee’s associate, no relation), and William Chen, a teacher of T’ai chi ch’uan. Wong and witness William Chen stated that the fight lasted an unusually long 20–25 minutes.[43] According to Bruce Lee, Linda Lee Cadwell, and James Yimm Lee, the fight lasted 3 minutes with a decisive victory for Lee. “The fight ensued, it was a no-holds-barred fight, it took three minutes. Bruce got this guy down to the ground and said ‘do you give up?’ and the man said he gave up” – Linda Lee Cadwell.[42]
Wong Jack Man published his own account of the battle in the Chinese Pacific Weekly, a Chinese-language newspaper in San Francisco, which contained another challenge to Lee for a public rematch.[43] Lee had no reciprocation to Wong’s article, nor were there any further public announcements by either, but Lee had continued to teach Caucasians.

In a boxing match Pac would cap Lee. But in an open fight, Lee would cap Pac. Bruce Lee was as good with his feet as he was with his fists.

Bruce Lee was an actor… Name a well known fighter he faced!!!! Benny “The Jet” Urquidez tried to get Lee to fight, without success.

Pacquiao would knock Lee’s head off like he did Ricky Hatton’s.. Only Pacman would put Lee down and out harder and faster.. and his head would bounce higher off the canvas.

Anonymous my friend, I understand that Bruce Lee was quite an iconic figure that was a very inspirational man. He frequently participated in many spectacular exhibitions. I was and still am a big fan of his. Manny Pacquiao has so many similarities. As a matter of fact, Manny looks up to the legendary martial artist. I merely brought up the possibility of Manny Pacquiao fighting Bruce Lee in a imaginary fight. I know this would never happen, but the mere thought peeked my interest. I without bias went into deep thought about this match up and came up with a conclusion. Manny destroys him and hits Bruce Lee with his own one inch punch and sends him 20 feet down the road. Manny is faster, stronger and is a trained fighter. Manny is one of those rare breed of fighters that defeats any fighter in any era. And Manny Pacquiao actually started this breed. This is a man that will undoubtedly be studied for his extraordinary skills in the art of fighting. Manny Pacquiao could have dominated any sport he chose to be involved in. He’s a great athlete, and his intelligence inside and outside is incredible to see. Remember when he slowly dissected and destroyed another great fighter, Miguel Cotto or how about Oscar De La Hoya. This is greatness in the flesh. 8 division champion is unheard of in any sport. Imagine Bruce Lee moving up 8 weight classes? Impossible to do, and Many did the impossible. I won’t even mention his other accomplishments, which I have mentioned in previous posts. Manny is a Marvel when it comes to the sweet science. There has never been a fighter that can match Manny’s reign of terror as he fought and not only beat, but devastated an army of great fighters. Morales, Barrera, Marquez, Hatton, Diaz, Cotto, De La Hoya and Margarito. There was mass hysteria as the accumulation of bodies left the squared circle after having stepped into the ring with Manny Pacquiao. Today, the legend is just as popular and as effective as he was back in 2009. The brilliant, strategic boxing exhibition he displayed against Brandon Rios was one for the ages. No one in the history of this great sport has ever been able to change from a destructive, aggressive, power punching monster to a poetic, graceful, strategically brilliant, technically sound pure boxer like Manny Pacquiao did. Once again, this was greatness right in front of our eyes. Macau China is still reeling with amazement and appreciation for Manny Pacquiao. Los Angeles has been feverishly insisting that Manny Pacquiao continue to train in the city of angels for one more week. The Los Angeles Times has been following Manny almost on a minute to minute basis. Las Vegas is rolling out more than one red carpet just in case Manny comes from another direction. Sin City is alive and well, and eagerly anticipating their favorite son’s return. The greatest fighter that has ever lived will be put on display for the world to see on April 12th. My tickets were bought the first day. This is the most historic fight in boxing history. I will be watching live a man that will never be duplicated again. Manny Pacquiao will win his title back in dominating fashion. Trust me on this. Manny is the best.

Contact your for erections lasting more than 4 hours” Some of you guys are hilarious with your posts. Man that one had me laughing. Listen gentlemen, Timothy Bradley is in serious, serious trouble. I’m not sure if you saw what I saw in Manny, but he has that look in his eye that means business. He’s fighting himself from leaning over the table and slapping Timothy Bradley for an hour. Timothy knows he will be for the fight of his life. He’s been hit and damaged a lot since he fought Manny. His body will eventually crack. Provodnikov won that fight, and that kind of physical abuse lingers around each and every fight. Manny can still punch, trust me, he’s going to put on the most memorable and exciting fight to date. Manny is biting at the bit like a race horse raring to go. Don’t leave your seats. Manny Pacquiao may end this fight befor 4 rounds, and no later than 9 rounds. The graceful movement he had against Rios will be there. The solar punching power he had against Hatton will be there. The viciousnes and pin point accuracy he had against Oscar De La Hoya will be there. Do not count this man out. Manny will turn back the hands of time and will get his revenge. This fight will start off quickly,a nd Timothy will try and box for 2 rounds until he gets caught by the straight left hand. He’ll resort to his weaving and moving low to the side, but he will be bombarded with speed. Bradley will not be able to control his emotions when he gets hit and hurt, and he will fight. Manny will then end matters with vicious body punching. Manny will have learned from the first fight. The body will take punishment before the end of the fight. Fans will once again witness what a great fighter does after he faces adversity inside and outside the ring. Thisis a legend that will be remembered for centuries to me. Trust me on this Bradley will be stopped. Manny is the best!

Hidaldg0 my friend, thank you for at least acknowledging Manny Pacquiao’s sensational singing ability. There’s a touch of Bruno Mars, Adam Levine and Chris Brown. IMHO, I think his rendition of the popular John Lennon song, Imagine was worthy of a Bill Board Music Award. Manny puts passion and soul into each of his songs. I’m not saying he’s the best singer ever, but he’s at least in the top 3. Two of Manny’s songs Para Sa’ Yo Laban Na’lo or Ipatika Mo are tremendous. Have any of you ever heard other boxers sing? Joe Frazier, bless his soul and Joe and the knockouts tried, but “Smokin” Joe just couldn’t sing. If Manny Pacquiao ever decides to pursue singing full time, I can get guarantee you right now that he will win a few Grammy’s. I highly suggest and urge you to buy one of his CD’s and or attend one of his performances. f you do, you will be humming or singing his music for months. Manny is incredibly talented, and I’m happy to know that there are some fans out there with ability to hear talented singing from him. His singing will either have you in tears or jumping out on the dance floor. Manny is the best!

This fight is a wash who wants to watch Manny fight the same guys over and over, now there is going to be a Marquez 5 are you serious enough already. I am so glad the boxing public is smart enough not to fall for this BS. Arum pits all his dogs against one another and will continue to do it as long as he is getting all the money. But look how fast Manny has declined. Not only in his ppvs but in his abilities as well. He climbed 8 divisions and KOed junior middleweights nowhere in the history of the sport as anyone came up in weight that much and actually gained speed and power. Then he goes to get beat by Marquez and Tiny Tim? look at how fast others who where on the juice declined as well. Roy Jones, James Toney, Holyfield, Barry Bonds the list goes on. Now days its harder to get away with PEDs. Manny was never this superman that he became when he was fighting the Morales of the world all of the sudden he becomes a wrecking ball. And would not submit to random blood unless his Jew Master could manipulate the testing they even had it down to days something is a foul about that. Now he cannot even KO Rios who stood in front of him all night what a joke. Hell no he was on the juice now he is clean and he will get his ass handed to him he is no sht without that in his syatem…

As far as this fight goes or either fighter’s careers go, it has no baring on the Holyfield Tyson fight. But Tim is no slouch, and he has a good chance in this fight. He has the speed and ring intelligence to cause Manny problems, but I doubt he has the power to break Manny’s, surely, damaged chin. But anything can happen in this sport.

Legendary boxer Manny Pacquiao reacquainted himself with the Wild Card gym after taking a few days off due to a cold that most athletes could not have come back from in such a short period of time. This is Manny Pacquiao at his best. No one or nothing can stop him when he is 100% focused on his profession. Los Angeles has been the fortunate city to house the top P4P fighter in boxing today. As is customary during his training in Los Angeles, Manny Pacquiao continued to run at Griffith Park, which led his legion of his adoring fans to bring their cameras, camcorders, tape recorders and many of them even brought their camping gear with hopes of possibly having an encounter with Manny himself. Manny Pacquiao is constantly treated like royalty everywhere he appears. Somehow he is able to not get distracted and handles all of his responsibilities daily. Manny Pacquiao interestingly enough did have an idol of sorts. Bruce Lee. I often wonder about the similarities between them. Both small in stature, powerful, blinding speed and the aura of invincibility. Both had magnetic personalities that made them bigger than life. If both of these giants ever had to compete against each other, the world just might end. If I had to make a choice, which would be very difficult, I would take Manny by first round knockout. I mean no disrespect to Bruce Lee, but Manny Pacquiao would simply be too much. Freddie Roach made a few brief comments regarding Manny and his return to the gym. He was ecstatic to see the same form, power and speed that he’s been seeing in Manny for the last month. Timothy bradley is in serious trouble, and i don’t think he really believes he should be in the same ring with Manny Pacquiao. The same goes for Mayweather, Broner, Garcia, Canelo, Porter Marquez and Thurman. None of these guys want to take the first shot at Manny so they all have tickets to the fight and are anxiously awaiting as all boxing fans are to see Manny Pacquiao return. This fight is bigger than the NCAA College Basketball Tournament. In this fight, one and you’re done applies. There is no second chances, and the loser may have lost his career for good. During the second Rocky movie, as I have mentioned in a past post. Apollo was yelling at Rocky in the gym while they were sparring and Rocky wasn’t throwing back. Apollo yelled “There is no tomorrow, there is no tomorrow, there is no tomorrow, there is no tomorrow.” And those words speak directly to both Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley today. The Dessert Storm cannot and will not match up with the Hurricane that is Manny Pacquiao. The pressure is on. The bright lights are beaming. Center stage is where both combatants will be at on April 12th. Timothy Bradley felt Manny’s power last time. Freddie said that power actually broke both of his ankles. This time around, Manny Pacquiao will brutally stop Timothy Bradley, and the world will know why Manny Pacquiao is considered the greatest fighter to have ever lived. Trust me on this, no beats Manny Pacquiao when he’s motivated and focused, no one. Manny is the best!

Roach said one of his former fighters, Justin Fortune, was known to have used PEDs and James Toney twice tested positive for steroids, once when he was working with Roach.

“I won’t say I didn’t know,” said Roach, referring to Toney. “I never asked him, though. I never had a conversation. I could see his body structure had signs, his traps and stuff. He was either lifting a lot of weight or he was on (something).

“… I think I had one other fighter on steroids also, Justin Fortune. … I know he’d been there before.”

HE NEVER ASKED TONEY YET KNEW HE JUICED????

FORTUNE AS WELL???

So he’s in control of a fighter considered one of the greatest of all time, thinks the nutritionist is “SHADY”, doesn’t get answers to his questions regarding his suspicions of PED’s and his fighters nutritional intake/consumption yet does not fire him on the spot?

I wonder how Amir Khan managed to stay upright in his fight with Marcos Maidana

Freddie 2009:

We can’t have that five days or three days out from the fight. [With calls for random blood tests from Mayweather right up to the day before the fight]. I don’t want to send my fighter in there feeling weak mentally or physically, so we would not agree to that.”

HaHaHaHaHa!

Posted March 21, 2014 11:42 pm 


HHLondon

Freddie 2009:

“I know my fighter. I know he’s never taken drugs and never will take drugs. I mean, I have trouble giving him vitamins for Christ’s sake. I mean, he doesn’t like needles; he doesn’t like blood drawn, He does not react well to having blood taken. He’s weak for three days, afterwards.”

Freddie 2014:

“I know he has a new strength coach [Alex Ariza] and I don’t get along with the guy, and one of the reasons why he doesn’t work for me anymore is because I think he’s a little shady, you know. He used to give Manny [Pacquiao] a drink every day before we worked out and I asked him, ‘What’s in that drink,’ and he would never tell me. And I said, ‘I need to know what’s in that drink because, you know, you’re giving it to my fighter and if something goes wrong, I’m gonna get the blame.’ In my opinion, he’s a little shady,”

So it took FIVE YEARS for Freddie to recognise something BOXING, FLOYD, ROGER and FLOYD Snr knew from DAY ONE and still the Pacquiao nutguggers try and blame Floyd for fighting, invoking OST and winning belts from younguns time after time after time …??????????????????

How come Floyd insists on OST for EVERYONE, yet Roach and Pacquiao only ask for it when it suits them????????

Arum is a problem he keeps all his dogs in the same kennel. The problem with that is his fighers don’t get the best fights out there. Floyd is the best so no matter who wins, Manny or Bradley number 2 and 3 but there is only 1. Arum messed Manny up so many times form making the fight happen so much that no one will ever deal with him again. Now Marquez 5 really enough already. Just thin how much Manny or Tim can make fighting Floyd, Danny Garcia or Miadana. Floyd can fight Maidana then most likely Danny Garcia or Kahn and make 200 million easy.

That’s what I thought….lol I guess since he went toe to toe in both fights hbo can sell this lame azz fight no one asked for….bradley vs marquez was a fight that showcased Bradley’s skill set….but it probably won’t help sell this jive…..

Squared-Circle Real Talk (a.k.a. LionKing)

So basically, HBO is going to treat us to replays of two Bradley fights that he really didn’t win, but was given the decisions anyway for some strange reason. PacMan vs. Bradley I was one of the worst robberies in boxing history and Bradley vs. Provodnikov should’ve been scored a Draw. Bradley still owes Provo a rematch after this fight. But I seriously doubt he’ll dare to face Ruslan again.

Lol. PAC has a beard and a thick mop of hair in that photo. I would say Bradley’s head is bigger! … Either way Tim is getting knocked out. After suffering a bad KO loss against JMM, A convincing win for Manny at this point in his career over an elite fighter like Tim would add to his greatness. RJJ couldn’t bounce back after his crushing loss. Decent champs like Hamed, Butt and Lacy couldn’t get back on top either. PAC will prove he’s cut from the same cloth as legends like Louis, Hearns and Lewis.

Bradley by ud. He will outbox manny. K.o. manny? Never that! I dont understand how a guy built like Bradley has absolutely no pop in his fist! But he is tough, good defense, good chin, and an ultimate warrior! Plus is condition is 2nd to none. Thats why he wins! If he had any kind of punching power? Wow!!!

The powers that be are really trying to sell this BS fight, how many times do we need to see Manny fight the same people. Hell this fight wont even sell 1 million ppvs. Manny is a wash until he starts fight real fighters and I don’t mean the Marquez, Bradley or Rios of the world. He needs. Floyd, Danny Garcia, Kahn or even a guy like Maidana to get back in contention otherwise is career is over and its because Top rape has no big name fighters to chose from…

Pac’s head is HGH larger than Tim’s. That is irrefutable. Make up more excuses. In fact, Pac’s head is larger than Barry Bonds’ who has never failed a test neither.

Tim is DOING VADA voluntarily. How can anyone say Tim is on PEDs? He’s feather fisted.

“Look at Pac’s HGH head. It’s bigger than Tim’s.” – Pac has long hair. Shave hm bald like Tim’s and you’ll see Tim has a gigantic beach ball head. In fact it makes me wonder why you don’t call for Bradley to go through random testing like Pac has?

Even after his gift, no one gives a toss about Bradley. His fixed fights did nothing for him but get him some pay days. He will never be popular.

Look at Pac’s HGH head. It’s bigger than Tim’s. No wonder there is no VADA.

Headsup. The WBO ordered Gary Russell vs Vasyl Lomachenko for the vacant WBO featherweight title. High risk fight for both guys, and a good rumble.

llocano… Yep hopefully Boxnation come up trumps. I hate handing over 10-15 quid for the dodgy shows primetime produces… I will for a Pacquiao fight, but I refuse for anything else.

KC … Yes. After hearing the scorecards of their first fight I felt like I’d been watching a theatre show or WWF match. It seemed more like a big Bob Arum con job, not a sport at all. To casual fans who only follow the big fights it must make them think boxing is a joke. …. … If it really was an underhand move by Bob greasing up the judges, well it paid off for him. Bradley is now P4P no.3, and a big name in the sport. If he’d been given the loss against PAC he wouldn’t hav got JMM and nobody wud giv a toss about him now.

@Popkins. I was about to raise the same question as yours & I am feeling disappointed at the moment because it seems like Sky Sports & BoxNation is not in their schedule. BoxNation’s boxing schedule is up to the 26th of July & Sky Sports schedule is up to the 31st of July. Both channels neither had the Pacquiao vs, Bradley 2. Primetime, am not sure if they’re still broadcasting. I’m hoping BoxNation will give us a big surprise which they often does!! So, yeah, UK viewers please keep us posted about whichUK channel will deliver us the goods! Good day everyone or let’s say boxing fans.

Worst scored fight ever….Has caused me and many others I know to lose interest in this so called sport….

Replays of the very obvious: Bradley lost both fights. The fates have been extremely kind to him. Pacquiao will be at his very best to break the three-times lucky charm.

i would love to see a KO, but Bradley is tough….but i think Pacquaio will look impressive/dominant for a win

Posted March 21, 2014 2:55 pm

Anyone know who has got PAC-Brad 2 in the UK? Hope it’s not crappy primetime. Boxnation or Sky?

No
A clever yet cautious animal
But scenting blood becomes ravenous and animalistic in its blood thirsty craving for the finish
Just like we trained for

Unlike Rocky Balboa chasing chickens in a bomber jacket and beanie
PAC will be chasing stray dogs and biting their heads off
Just like we trained for

I disagree, I like Hecdog´s comments.

DMX – I don’t think he’ll be on “animal mode”, he was given a vicious reminder that he CANNOT be wild and reckless, animal mode implies there’ll be some sort of wildness.

Manny will be animal mode
This fight will make everyone wake up
The beat down and knock out will be chilling

Manny Pacquiao is classified by boxing fans around the world as an ATG, and that goes without question. The vast majority of them regard him as the greatest fighter of all time. Manny himself will not claim either. He is a man with dignity and humility. He neither boasts or brags. I was watching Timothy Bradley on a news clip the other day and was bothered tremendously, and even today I’m somewhat shook up by words that came out of his mouth. He was speaking to the commentator telling everyone that he would not lose this fight. He then said the unthinkable. “Manny will have to kill me to beat me.” I am a man of peace as is Manny Pacquiao. Manny Pacquiao is already considered an assassin type of fighter inside the squared circle. He takes people out as a hit man does. I truly want Timothy Bradley to apologize and take those chilling words back. This is a sport of gentlemen, and hurting someone to that extent is unfathomable. Timothy Bradley’s mouth is creating a dangerous environment for him. First he says that Manny has lost his killer instinct, there goes that word again. He continues to say he won the first fight. It’s one thing after another, and finally he says he’ll have to be killed to lose. Manny’s beautiful wife Jinkee has stated that she will not be coming to the fight due to her pregnancy. Their child is due in late April. This is a good move because the outcome of this fight will be horrific. Manny Pacquiao is more than just serious about this fight. I have heard through the grapevine that Manny has cancelled his sold out singing engagements in order to stay focused. This is a catch 22 situation because on one hand, he will stay 100% focused on the fight, and on the other, myself and thousands of other Manny fans just lost out on a concert that was rumored to a new string of unheard Manny songs that will go straight to the top of the charts. This is Manny’s time to revive the sports world and the entertainment world will have to wait for a brief moment. The movie “Manny” continues to receive great reviews. This is a must see movie that will enlighten your heart as you see the life of Manny Pacquiao unfold. This is an emotional roll coaster that will leave you in tears if you appreciate life and care about people. Directors from Hollywood have already started on a sequel. This is the greatness of Manny Pacquiao. Everything he touches turns to gold. The biggest fight in boxing history is only weeks away. I’ve been preparing for 3 months doubling my work load at the office on a daily basis. This has become a bit hectic, but worthwhile. We’re having a Manny Pacquiao victory party at my place 2 days before the fight. Boxing is alive and well, and you can give Manny Pacquiao all the credit. Los Angeles is a mad house, but Las Vegas will be an insane asylum when Manny Mania arrives, trust me on this. Manny is the best!
