Fighting For Honor And Country PDF Print E-mail

At 8:00pm, on the evening of November 14, 2009, two great welterweight boxers are scheduled to fight for their honor and their country.
Manny Pacquiao (pronounced Packy-ow) has won forty-eight fights, lost three, with two draws, and thirty-seven knockouts and will be fighting for the Philippines.
Miguel Cotto has won thirty-four fights, lost only one, with twenty-seven knockouts and will be fighting for Puerto Rico.
Pound for pound, these two champions are now considered the two best boxers in the world, and both consider this fight to be the crossroads of their careers.
Former boxing champion Freddy Roach, Pacquiao's trainer, says that Pacquiao may be the greatest Asian boxer and best left-handed boxer of all time. Pacquiao already has six championship titles in the lower weight divisions and recently defeated the famous Oscar De La Hoya, another one of the greatest boxers of all time.   Pacquiao is considered to have the advantage in speed.
Cotto is an extremely aggressive fighter, and is especially dangerous during the first three rounds.   His only loss was from a fighter who was found to use illegally weighted tape under his gloves.
This boxing match will be "The Quest To Be The Best!".   You can find it on HBO pay-per-view television, channel 123.   It  costs $54.95.   Everyone expects this to be one of the most exciting fights you will ever see.

The Changing Dynamic of Fighting
underOvr - 11-20-2009 02:07

Fifty years ago, fighting was a big sport in America. It allowed a kid (particularly an African American) who grew up in poverty to earn a living (provided he was good). Today, that avenue has been replaced by other sports that provide greater opportunities and exposure for success. Boxing today is a sport dominated by fighters outside American borders. These men not only fight for their livelihood, they fight for their country as well. In a way, they have a greater vested stake in the ring. Everytime they fight, the citizens of their country cheer them on. A win means victory for their country, a loss means hurt and shame felt by all back home. Boxers are modern day gladiators; as are competitors in any professional sport. I think boxing, football, and basketball all have that physical aspect in which an individual or team is pitted against another. The outcome is never determined by arbitrary scoring, it is determined by "who is better". U

You are right! However, it now appears that almost all sports in the USA have "Gone Global." A Caribbean invasion into baseball; Pacific Islander's into the National Football League; A myriad of foreigner's in soccer, worldwide students enrolled in our colleges are participating in all sports. As the favorite tune at DisneyWorld & DisneyLand says......"It's A Small World After All." :woohoo:

As an update on the aforementioned boxing match, Pacquiao beat Cotto with a TKO with nly 55 seconds to go in the fight. It was a great fight, as expected, but Pacquiao was just too strong for Cotto. This win gives Pacquiao a 7th world championship title in 7 different weight classes. He is now seeking another title fight with Floyd Meriweather, Jr., which should be another great fight. However, it has been reported that Meriweather has been dodging a fight with Pacquiao, but the money the fight will bring to the fighters, will eventually force them to fight each other. :whistle:

Yep....athletics sure has enhanced my life, & given me a lot of memories, some of which I wrote on my new high school website today. You must share a lot of memories with "The Coach" too. :)
Yuck for fights

Don't like boxing, never did. I feel badly for the guy getting beat up and I can't justify fighting just because a person feels like punching something. One can always buy one of those clowns that when you hit it in the face it wobbles and comes right back for more. You get the aggression out without hurting anyone. Remember those things? I never liked clowns either...they always scared me. Even as a kid...alas, can't justify boxing.

Wrestler's get all banged up too, so do you feel bad for them? However, wrestling is simply putting actors into the ring, just to perform their act for the fans & for the money. The real wrestler's are found in the Olympics! :P
