Long live the Filipino people!

What a stunning victory! a 2nd round stoppage of the "HITMAN" Ricky Hatton by Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao. It only took just 359 seconds to add the latest devastating chapter to a legacy that will last for decades.

This fight puts another accolade not only to the Filipino fighter who now for sure is the undisputed "Pound-for-pound" king of the ring and the Greatest boxer in the world today, but this fight brought honor and prestige to the Filipino people.

Manny once again lifted up the image of his fellow countrymen as a resilient people with a heart to win in spite of the many odds we are facing.

With all the cheers, the zests and the celebration of this momentous event in Boxing History, let us not forget to first give God all the glory and honor He deserves. Let us not also forget that with this win, we are not above any other race but rather remain humble for being given a chance to excel in the arena of sports and world competition.

Still we give our respect to Ricky Hatton for the the spirit of sportsmanship he showed during the fight. Our hearts goes with him too and the thousands of English fans out there. Once again, my warmest congratulations to Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao and to the millions of people who believed on him.

This is my message for Manny, always remember that "The way to going UP is down". always stay humble, trust God and put Him first in everything you do. Your success today is a gift from God, what you will do with it is your gift to Him.
