HBO Presents: 24/7 Pacquiao vs Marquez 4


While waiting for the Pacquiao vs Marquez 4 bout why not watch some HBO 24/7 Pacquiao vs. Marquez 4 Episodes?

We all know that Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao will be fighting Juan Manuel Marquez for the 4th time on December 8, 2012 (December 9 in Manila). But as of writing this post it will be several hours away so I suggest you watch some special HBO 24/7 Pacquiao vs. Marquez 4

Here is Episode 1 of HBO 24/7 Pacquiao vs. Marquez 4

And here is Episode 2 of HBO 24/7 Pacquiao vs. Marquez 4

Pacquiao vs Marquez 4 Ilemi TV, Sopcast, Justin TV


Update:

Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao will be fighting Juan Manuel Marquez for the 4th time on December 8, 2012 (December 9 in Manila). The WBO ‘Champion of the Decade’ belt will be at stake and the match will be held at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.

Pacman is sporting a 54W-4L-2D card while Marquez got a 54W-6L-1D card.

Pacman is coming from a controversial loss against Timothy Bradley last June 2012. Marquez was victorious in his last bout against Serhiy Fedchenko last April 2012.

For this boxing match I will be in Manila, Philippines like the Pacquiao Marquez III, Pacquiao Mosley, Pacquiao Cotto and Pacquiao Margarito matches.

Of course the usual PPV channels like HBO-PPV are the best choice if you got lotsa money. Toprank.com also offers live screening via TopRank.TV

Again this is the time when people are planning where to watch Pacquiao vs Marquez 4, but if you have extra money to spare and you are in the Philippines, try the nearest cinema at the mall nearest you. Almost all the major cinemas (SM Malls and Robinsons Malls) are offering Pacquiao vs Marquez 4 live screenings so why not try to watch it there in wide screen.

Some restaurants are offering Pacquiao vs Marquez 4 live screenings too so look for the best bargain ok? Some town plaza and city gyms are also playing Pacquiao vs Marquez 4 bouts live courtesy of their local government officials so it will be a good choice.

For me (and I know a lot of other folks in the internetz), it will be online diskarte time again hehe 🙂

Disclaimer: I do not guarantee if the channels below will work. Some of them worked in the previous Pacman fights against Marquez III, Mosley, Margarito, Cotto and Clottey. But I will try my best to update this one with available channels and links.

Pacquiao vs Marquez 4 Ilemi TV (Ilemi.TV)

Ilemi TV is a free streaming site. Over the course of time Ilemi have changing domain names. Before they were at Ilemi.me, then they moved to Ilemi.com and now they seems to be Ilemi.tv or Ilemi.eu

This is for me the best option for Pacquiao vs Marquez 4: Ilemi, just remember and try their sites (go to ilemi.com or ilemi.me or www.ilemi.tv or ilemi.eu) and look for Pacquiao vs Marquez 4 related channels.

Just be vigilant because Pacquiao and Marquez have fought several times already and you may be viewing the old Pacquiao vs Marquez bouts.

Pacquiao vs Marquez 4 Sopcast

Sopcast is free program that offers video streaming services. You have to download Sopcast client and then know specific channels playing Pacquiao vs Marquez 4 Sopcast. This worked on previous Pacquiao bouts but the issue we got last time is that Sopcast was heavily policed. By “policed” it means the website is monitored well and unofficial streams of boxing matches are disconnected. As of writing the all my known Pacquiao and boxing channels return error messages. But I will share if there will be available channels.

Pacquiao vs Marquez 4 Justin.TV

Justin.TV is another favorite streaming site whenever there are sporting events like boxing or football.

You need to go to Justin.TV website, and during popular boxing bouts like Pacquiao vs Marquez 4, Justin.tv usually highlights that they are serving it live. But just like Sopcast, the problem we got with Justin.TV was that it was also heavily policed and channels streaming Pacquiao were either removed, or maximum connection allowed were reached. But again Justin.TV is definitely a free choice.

I will update this post if I have other choices.

Of course I’m rooting for a Manny Pacquiao win!

And this post is my good luck shout out post to Pacman and to Team Pacquiao!!!

Pacquiao vs Bradley: Ilemi TV, Sopcast, Justin TV


Update: 2012.06.10 1:10PM (GMT=8)
Bradley wins via split decision.

Manny “Pacman’ Pacquiao will be battling TimothyDesert StormBradley on June 9, 2012 (June 10 in Manila). The WBO Welterweight belt will be at stake and the match will be held at MGM Grand Garden Arena, in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.

Pacman is sporting a 54W-3D-2L (with 38 KO’s) card while Bradley is undefeated with 28W-0D-0L (with 12 KO).

For this boxing match I will be in Manila, Philippines like the Pacquiao Marquez, Pacquiao Mosley, Pacquiao Cotto and Pacquiao Margarito bouts.

If you have money to spare, try the nearest cinema in the mall near you. I saw some cinema posters (I believe in SM Malls) offering Pacquiao vs Bradley live screenings so why not try it. Some restaurants (like Sambokojin and Dad’s) offer Pacquiao vs Bradley screenings with eat all you can buffet too.

But for me, no free PLDT MyDSL Watchpad event with free pizza and drinks for me like in the Pacman Marquez, so it will be FREE TV or Online Diskarte time again hehehe 🙂

Pacquiao vs Bradley Sopcast

Sopcast is program that offers video streaming services. You have to download Sopcast client first and then know specific channels playing Pacquiao vs Bradley Sopcast. This worked on previous Pacquiao bouts but the issue we got last time is that Sopcast was heavily policed. The usual known Pacquiao and Boxing channels return error messages when I tried this week. But I will share if there will be available channels.

Pacquiao vs Bradley Justin.TV

Justin.TV is another favorite video streaming site whenever there are sporting events like Boxing.

Viewers need to go to Justin.TV website, and during mega-popular boxing bouts like Pacquiao vs Bradley, Justin.tv usually highlights that they are serving it live. But just like Sopcast, the problem we got with Justin.TV was it is heavily policed and channels streaming Pacquiao were either removed, or maxed out on the connection allowed. But Justin.TV is worth a try.

I will update this post if I have other choices.

Btw, I’m rooting for Manny Pacquiao!

Good luck to Pacman and to Team Pacquiao!!!

Pacquiao vs. Margarito on November 13, 2010

Update:

Manny Pacquiao wins via Unanimous Decision!!!

MannyPacmanPacquiao will face AntonioTijuana TornadoMargarito on November 13, 2010 (November 14 in Manila) for the vacant WBC Super Welterweight World Title belt at the Cowboys Stadium, Arlington, Texas, USA. I’m rooting for Pacman, just like what I did in the Pacquiao-Hatton, Pacquiao-Dela Hoya, Pacquiao–Cotto and Pacquiao–Clottey fights.

The bout will really be a heated one as I heard of dirty trash talks mentioning the Raps (as in hand wraps) and the Roids (as in steroids).

As Freddie Roach already gave his prediction (Manny will KO Margarito in 1st round) and even the papa of “saling-pusa” joining the prediction fracas, I think its time that I give my share too 🙂

So in the tradition of my free my six free cafe world cheats, my six free social city cheats, my six free petville cheats, my six starcraft 2 crack, my six tagalog love quotes, my six wow mounts and my free six video posts here are my six Pacquiao vs. Margarito predictions (with a twist of course)

  1. There will be no traffic congestion is the streets of Metro Manila during the entire duration of the fight
  2. The one assigned to sing the Philippine National Anthem will make some deviations (whether it be minor or a major major one I don’t know yet)
  3. #pacquiao and #margarito will be a trending topic in Twitter (maybe between 2 to 3 hours before the actual fight)
  4. Pacquiao and Margarito related topics will be in Google Trending and Yahoo Trending (maybe between 3 to 6 hours before the undercard starts)
  5. In conjunction with item 3 and 4, there will be some Black Hat SEO campaign abusing the Pacquiao and Margarito related searches. So be careful OK?
  6. And last but not the least, after the fight, a chicken boxer (with the initials of KFC) will try to steal the show by challenging the winner of the bout! 🙂

Lastly my best wishes to Pacman and Team Pacquiao!

Good-luck and God bless you Manny! Mabuhay ka Manny Pacquiao!
