This fight is no doubt a defining moment for Manny Pacquiao as he tries to resuscitate his boxing career after losing to Juan Manuel Marque last December. The Philippines and the recent typhoon Haiyan catastrophe must be weighing heavily on Pacquiao’s mind as well as the people of the Philippines.
But the fight that will determine the 2013 international welterweight title belt between Rios and Pacquiao could also be an uplifting, spirited moment for the people of the Philippines as they cope with recovering from the sever decimation of many of their beloved regions, including Pacquiao’s own region, Sarangani, in which he presides as congressmen.
Rios is coming into this fight as an underdog but has one thing going for him. His up front, relentless style will most surely put some pressure on Pacquiao from the get go. If Pacquiao can weather the storm look for Pacman to send a message about false rumors of his early retirement to rest with some late round domination.
Most boxing experts have Pacquiao winning this fight, but need not forget that if he were to lose it could spell the end of his career. At least in the welterweight division.
