Reposting: Why Manny won:
From Bro Jong Saberola FB account
… If a judge can’t decide who won the round, it is scored 10-10.
Now if u are the challenger, u must be the aggressor (Pacquiao vs Cotto) in very close rounds the Champion gets the 10.
For example if Pacquiao would just stay still and Marquez does not attack, Pacquiao gets the 10 and Marquez 9.
In this case Manny(champion) was always aggressive while Marquez(challenger) waits for an attack and counters.
Marquez’s body language fooled a lot of people. Making people feel that he was the winner or at least it was a draw. It may look like he was landing more punches but the tricky part here is he was on the defensive, luring pacquiao into his tactical traps (remember the challenger must be the one who is aggressive to be awarded 10 ).
So even if Marquez did connect more punches he gets only 9 for being defensive and Manny gets the 10 for being the attacker.
Pacquiao got more “10″s than Marquez. Manny wins.
Man that was a fight I nearly fell on my chair, when Marquez was punching hard Manny during rounds 5 and 6 onwards… That anchorman should have been pulled out or fired, to me that newscaster was pro-Marquez, but whenever Manny delivers good punches he doesn’t acknowledge and recognize that Marquez was hit! Manny Pacquiao’s fight tonight was really a sudden death, yet only one needs to win, good thing it was a Majority Decision that Manny should win the fight! My other side is telling that’s an inch to defeat for Manny.
That’s a fight! I’m still in euphoria! Accoding to Yahoo! Sports: “Judge Robert Hoyle had it a draw, 114-114, as did Yahoo! Sports. But judge Dave Moretti favored Pacquiao 115-113 and and Glenn Trowbridge had Pacquiao winning 116-112. Thus, Pacquiao retained his World Boxing Organization welterweight title and kept alive a mega-bout against Mayweather.”…and…”According to CompuBox(a computer that records punches), Pacquiao landed 176 of 578 punches. Marquez connected on 138 of 436 punches, preferring, as in his first two fights, to counter punch. Pacquiao had a 117-100 edge in power shots.”
With that it is very clear that Manny is the winner!
From time to time I get mail from readers, but this one is an exception because I don’t know what’s the going… The mail is asking me how much is the Memorial Lots in Midsayap? If you know something pls leave a comment below…
And if you are selling your memorial lots, pls leave us a message here, certainly a lot of Midsayap-OFWs will be interested.
Few moths ago, I read about an article about pregnant Chinese women who somehow goes to the United to States to give birth so that their child can claim US citizenship. AND I know a Filipino Mom too who applied for Tourist Visa for US which she got, and came over to give birth to her son, and now the son is already a US Citizen but they are in the Philippines right now and one day the investment will pay off and this is very legal.

Parents are funny aren’t they? It’s only when you get to be a parent that you understand the reason why. Taking responsibility for your life needs guidance from our parents, which I am guilty many times. As to the bigger level, we really need guidance from our almighty God. Amen.
