"I am sure almost all Filipinos of all ages will stay glue in their television sets and watch the Pacquiao-Bradley most awaited rematch at MGM Grand in Las Vegas, USA. I got three friends, Zamboanga City Councillor Rommel "Meng"Agan, Zamboangueno businessman and basketball manager Junie Navarro, and Mithi Aquino-Thomas of Jolo, who are there and shares update about our Pambansang Kamao. They said that Manny is a very kind and accommodating man whom they admired not only because of his boxing skills but also the radiation of his godly personality that inspires everyone around.

Team Zamboanga (TZ) Basketball Manager Junie Navarro who became close to Manny Pacquiao because of their common love for basketball is privileged to be part of the MP entourage. TZ has been joining MP Basketball Tournament in General Santos City. It played side by side with Team Pacquiao Basketball Team in a basketball tournament recently at Pasadena, Californa.

Mithi Aquino-Thomas from Jolo, Sulu is the wife of USA Diplomat (former Ambassador to the Philippines) Harry Thomas. She was working in Manila three years ago when Thomas was smitten with her beauty, pleasing personality, and wit. She is now based in Arizona with her husband. Mithi was a teen-ager when I first her in the clinic of her Mom, Dr. Zenaida Aquino in Jolo, Sulu years back. The Aquino Family has transferred to Manila already.

I read in an article that this will be a fight for redemption for both boxers. Their last fight in 2012 was one of the controversial decisions in the boxing history. Despite Pacquiao had a good performance, Bradley won over Pacquiao with a very close score sheet of 115-113.  Pacquiao said that he prayed to God what round he will knock down Bradley but definitely he will do it this time. And I believe he will win.

Deuteronomy 28:1-68. “And if you faithfully obey the voice of the Lord your God, being careful to do all his commandments that I command you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth. And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, if you obey the voice of the Lord your God. Blessed shall you be in the city, and blessed shall you be in the field. Blessed shall be the fruit of your womb and the fruit of your ground and the fruit of your cattle, the increase of your herds and the young of your flock. Blessed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl.”
