I have posted some new video on Pacquiao Hatton HBO 24/7 Trailer plus one trainer trash talking.

I was watching TV last weekend and saw several GMA-7 Flash Report on the PacquiaoSolar SportsABS-CBN love triangle issue. The lawyer of Pacquiao is reading some prepared statement affirming that the coverage of his May 2 fight with Hatton is still with Solar Sports (and subsequently GMA-7). I asked my brother why the news and the statement needs to be aired several times, he just smiled and said that it must be in response to ABS-CBN report that Pacquiao is already moving to the ABS-CBN stable. Checking the details today and reading and GMANews.TV report, it seems that this is another messy issue and Pacman is being dragged into the television network war.

As a boxer, I love Manny Pacquiao. He brings glory and pride to our beloved country every time he fights in the ring. I wish him well on his May 2, 2009 fight with Ricky Hatton. But my unsolicited advice to him now is to prepare for his bout and let the lawyers and publicist do the talking. It is good to hear that he is on the right track. To quote another GMANews.TV report:

To make Pacman more focused on his training, Team Pacquiao prohibited media coverage at the Wildcard Gym and scheduled autograph signing and photo sessions with the boxer only every Saturday.

Hats off to Team Pacquiao on that rule.

I will try to post other updates on Pacquiao-Hatton bout as the fight night nears.
