My beer buddy, Jingo – if I may say – boxingworld’s oracle – augured an “unwatchable” fight to be perpetrated by Barrera – but nevertheless predicted a unanimous decision in Manny’s favor. The best chance for Barrera is to fight an ugly fight, he says. Unwatchable, oh well…
I’m not a boxing sage as my friend is – but my heart says it’s a TKO win for Manny and the fight’s going to be exciting as hell. For cryin’ out loud, I’ve already shelled out precious pesos for a pay per view.
Well, here’s for another thumping thrilla tomorrow… and I wish all the best for our boxing hero.
(update: Pacquiao wins by unanimous decision. No knockdown in any round. Jingo was right (as usual)… except that it was not an “unwatchable” fight.)
