    Pag wala ang Dyos sayo, kahit anong “best” pa yang sinasabi mo, matatalo ka parin…

    Kaya kung ako sayo, magbalik loob ka na sa Dyos… iwanan mo na yang mga Pastor na pera lang habol sayo!

  • zeroko

    He he he. Sige, punta lahat kayong sore looser sa ring at labanan ninyo si Marquez. Mas marunong pa pala kayo ke Paquiao. Sige, Lusob!  He he he. Joke lang…………

  • zeroko

    Tama naman si Paquiao. He did his best.  Under the circumstance, he alone can say what he did, his state of mind, his physical attributes, and etc. He can speak for himself. These hordes of bad-losers who has nothing good to say in the first place are mocking him. Buti pa, kayo na lang ang pumasok sa ring………. Mga sour grapes. He he he. Pasuntok kaya kayo ke Marquez ng pasalubong? Pag hindi kayo lumipad, aywan ko lang. Maswerte si Paquiao, hindi siya nadisgrasya.

    Giving you an idea. A boxers and karate kids are train to put their weight on their knuckle while moving forward. The technique is to move forward and at the same time give your best punch while doing so. This way, your body weight is all concentrated on your knuckle. He he he. What more when you hit the target while he is moving forward too. He he he. Ang lakas ng tama! Terrible!

    But good news. May 5th bout pang darating. Sabi ko na, hindi aatras si Paquiao. Lucky punch is lucky punch. Pag nag materialize ang 5th bout nila, sigurado ako, ibabalik ni Paquiao ang dati niyang lakas ng idad 20 years old. He he he.  He again will “Dance like a Queen and sting like a bee”, as said by Mohammed Ali. He he he. Baka ako ma accuse ng Plagiarism kung hindi ko babangitin si Ali. He he he! Si “Dakilang Sotto, kapal moks, ayaw paring aminin.”

    So, good luck Paquiao, take a rest for one month and start training again. Kaya lang, huag mong iinumin ang ihi mo katulad ni Marquez. Habang nag jo-jogging, tingin diretso. Huag titingin sa mga young and beautiful. Focus ka sa shadow boxing. He he he. Joke lang………

    Pacquiao: ‘I did my best…That was not your Best Manny, that was WORST.

    • zeroko

      “I did my best but my best is not good enough.” He he he. Lucky punch!

  • VitalianoEspinosa

    Kawawa ka naman Manny.  The best mo na pala yon?  Dapat pala may award ka na Best in Sleeping.

    The difference between this fight and the previous 3?  JMM packed more power and/or Manny’s chin is not as good as it was before.  If you’ve seen their previous fights, they were all the same.  Manny got hit square in the jaw by JMM before.  

  • engroom

    ang sabi ” i never expected the punches”
    lol! akala pala nya hindi sumosuntok si marquez… acheche..

    • VitalianoEspinosa

      Yung mga ka sparring niya kasi hindi sumusuntok sa kaniya.  Ganoon ang training nila ni Buboy.
