Waiting for the Pacquiao-Margarito Fight

Tomorrow will be the Pacquiao-Margarito fight. Like many Filipinos, Time Travelling is hoping for another spectacular Pacquiao win. In two previous blog posts, we covered Manny’s fight as seen from the perspective of Filipino fans based in Puerto Rico (i.e., these blog posts were published by a local news daily):

Manny Pacquiao’s Greatest Hits

Tomorrow will be the fight of boxing’s best pound for pound fighter and fellow Filipino, Manny Pacquiao. I’ve blogged about his previous fight with Puerto Rican Miguel Cotto before, which appeared in a two-part series in a local Philippine newspaper.

I am still looking for a place to watch Manny’s match against Joshua Clottey. Boxing fans here in Puerto Rico have been marking their calendars for every upcoming fight that Manny is in, so I’m sure finding a place will not be much of a hassle. In the meantime, enjoy this HBO tribute on the Filipino pugilist.
