Glory for Paradise Philippines

Once again, our Pambansang kamao Manny "Pacman" Paquiao gave glory to Paradise Philippines, He won a unanimous decision against Antonio Barrera of Mexico.

Manny Pacquiao proved his first win over Marco Antonio Barrera four years ago was no fluke as he again beat the Mexican fistic icon Sunday with a lopsided 12-round decision before a crowd of 10,112 at the Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Unlike their first meeting where Pacquiao dominate Barrera via a resounding 11th round technical knockout, the return encounter was more subdued as the protagonists took a more tactical approach. Still, Pacquiao proved stronger and more powerful even against a better prepared Barrera and Filipinos are really proud to our pambansang kamao in Paradise Philippines.

The Barrera fight may also be Pacquiao’s last fight in the junior lightweight division. Pacquiao struggled to make the 130-pound limit and was still a pound overweight on Saturday.
