MANNY PACQUIAO: Looking Back to June 23, 2001 vs. Lehlohonolo Ledwaba, undercard fight for the OSCAR DE LA HOYA Main Event

It's ironic how life could be. Manny Pacquiao was just having his debut fight in the U.S. on June 23, 2001 against IBF Super Bantamweight Champion Lehlohonolo Ledwaba as an undercard for the Oscar De la Hoya main event fight. Nobody inside the arena even Pacquiao himself would know that 7 years and a half later Pacquiao and De la Hoya would clash with one another for the biggest event in boxing history.

Here's a video, Manny Pacquiao winning the IBF Super Bantamweight belt from Lehlohonolo Ledwaba, circa June 23, 2001.



Here's an article from Manny Pacquiao...

GENERAL SANTOS CITY -- Kumusta po ulit sa lahat ng masusugid kong tagasubaybay at sana ay nasa mabuti kayong kalagayan saan mang panig ng mundo kayo naroroon.

Opo, siguro, kung hindi pa ninyo nababalitaan, sa Disyembre 6, malamang magkakasama tayong lahat ulit upang bilang iisang lahi, bansa at liping Filipino ay sabay-sabay tayong manonood ng aking laban. Matapos ang maraming araw ng pag-iisip at negotiations, tuloy na po ang sagupaan namin ng Golden Boy ng boxing, si Oscar Dela Hoya.

Gaganapin ang laban sa MGM Grand Arena sa Las Vegas at ito ang sinasabi ng lahat na siyang pinakamalaking boxing event na mangyayari sa taong ito. Opo, mas malaki pa ito kaysa sa pagkakapanalo ko ng World Boxing Council super-featherweight title noong March 15 at ang pagkopo natin sa WBC lightweight crown noong June 28 lamang.

This is going to be a worldwide event where not only Filipinos will be watching me fight one of the best fighters in the sport of boxing and probably one of the richest and most influential superstars in all of sports. Everyone will be watching.

Naaalala ko pa po noong taong 2001, June 22 to be exact, nang una kong makasama at makita si Oscar Dela Hoya sa isang promotion, sa weigh-in ng kanya-kanya naming laban. Siya ang main event sa laban at ako ang isa sa undercard. Kasama dun ang yumaong si Agapito Sanchez na isa rin sa mga makakalaban ko sa susunod na ilang buwan, at ang sumisibol pang si Jermain Taylor, na lumaban sa isang four-rounder.

Sa poster ng fight, si Oscar ay lumaban para sa WBC light middleweight title kontra kay Javier Castillejo habang ako naman ay sumagupa sa kinatatakutang Afrikano na si Lehlo Ledwaba para sa IBF super-bantamweight championship. Maituturing na baguhan pa lang ako sa pandaigdigang audience noong panahon na iyon. Speak little English pa ako noon. Nakakatuwa pero iyon naman po talaga ang totoo. May interpreter pa ako noon.

Nakakatuwang isipin na pito at kalahating taon ang makakalipas, kaming dalawa ni Ginoong Dela Hoya ang magkakaharap ulit para sa main event ng pinakamalaking laban ng 2008, sa parehong hotel sa Las Vegas, Nevada. Siya ang tinanghal na 154-pound champion seven years ago. Ako naman ang 122-pound champion that time.

Seven years more from 2001 and 25 pounds heavier, I will face the man who I admired most for his speed and wisdom in the ring. Oscar and I will be fighting for boxing's most glorious win in the 147-pound limit.

Para tayo ay magwagi dito sa laban na ito, importante para sa akin ang maging mapagkumbaba at ang pagbalik-tanaw sa aking nakaraan, gaya noong araw ng aking unang laban sa US at sa pay-per-view. Ang taong hindi marunong tumanaw sa pinanggalingan, hindi makakarating sa paroroonan. Naniniwala po ako diyan.

Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think and imagine that I will be fighting the same man who was then a superstar and is still the sport's biggest draw. But I believe that after seven years of fighting, I have grown better, more mature and wiser as a fighter and as a person. I also know that I have the capability of scoring an upset over my boyhood idol.

Ito ang isa sa mga magiging batayan at marka ng aking boxing career at gaya ng dati, hihingin ko po ulit ang tulong at dasal ng bawat isa sa inyo upang sa huli, lahat tayo pa rin ang magwawagi.

Hanggang sa muling Kumbinasyon. God bless us all.

Rey 'Boom Boom' Bautista is back on track after he impressively demoslished his Mexican rival KO artist Eden Marquez in the 2nd round before a delighted packed audience at the Grand Ballroom of the Waterfront Hotel & Casino here tonight to successfully defend his WBO Superbantam Intercontinental title.

Photobucket
Not having seen any of his opponent's previous fights, Bautista wisely studied his opponent's moves in the first round choosing to defend instead of attacking immediately. In the second round however, Bautista unleashed combinations after combinations as he caught Marquez early in the round to score a knockdown. Marquez was able to beat the referee's count but Bautista immediately put pressure on Marquez hitting Marquez with solid combinations afterwards. Referee Bruce McTavish stopped the contest as Marquez was driven in the corner unable to defend himself. Time was 1:08 of the second round.

I have to figure out a way to pull the trigger, and I have to find a way to increase my speed." obviously refferring to Freddie Roach (De la Hoya's trainer in Mayweather fight) statement that De la Hoya can't "pull the trigger anymore."

"I know I can still do this." De la Hoya said. "My reflexes are still there. My speed and strength is still there."

One of the finest RAGS-TO-RICHES Story I've read and what's really amazing is that the guy in the story is a Filipino in the form of MANNY PACQUIAO. With a sure fee of $ 15M he'll get in the De la Hoya fight on Dec. 6, 2008 plus the earnings he'd earned since his U.S. debut in 2001 Manny Pacquiao becomes the first Filipino athlete to earn more than a billion pesos from the boxing sport in a span of only eight years ! wow ! and that doesn't even include Manny's commercial endorsements on TV and print-ads.

The curvaceous and delectable actress in the form of Iwa Moto comes of age and it's her birthday today August 29, 2008, Happy 20th Birthday Iwa ! She's the cover babe in FHM PHILIPPINES September 2008 Issue, what a way to celebrate a birthday.

MANNY PACQUIAO's Topsy-Turvy Outings at the MGM GRAND ARENA, Site of the PACQUIAO-DE LA HOYA Bout December 6, 2008

Photobucket

The Manny Pacquiao vs. De la Hoya fight is now set at the MGM Grand Arena on December 6, 2008. MGM Grand Garden Arena is located in the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. The arena has a seating capacity of 17,157 people and is located at 3799 Las Vegas Boulevard South.

The MGM Grand Arena is also the site of 3 Manny Pacquiao bouts in topsy-turvy fashion. He made his debut fight in the U.S. at the MGM Grand Arena knocking out previously undefeated Lehlohonolo Ledwaba in the 6th round winning the IBF world super bantamweight in June 23, 2001. He knocked down Juan Manuel Marquez three times in the first round also at the MGM Grand Arena in May 8, 2004 but the fight ended up in a draw, one of the judges later admitted a scoring error of 10-7 in the 1st round instead of the mandatory 10-6 score for 3 knock downs. Manny Pacquiao was defeated by Erik Morales by unanimous decision in their 1st bout of their trilogy at the MGM Grand Arena, March 19, 2005. Manny Pacquiao won over Erik Morales in the 2nd and 3rd bout of their trilogy later on.

A win in 2001, a draw in 2004 and a loss in 2005 by Manny Pacquiao at the MGM Grand Arena. I don't see any connection with those years, it seems random to me or I am not good in Chinese Feng Shui and I am not chinese. 2008 seems unlucky for the Filipino athletes at the just concluded Beijing Olympics for garnering zero medals. But 2008 seems to be the lucky year for Manny Pacquiao because he won the WBC Super Featherweight belt from Juan Manuel Marquez last March, 2008. He won the WBC Lightweight belt from David Diaz last June 2008. Hopefully Manny would be lucky on December 6, 2008, third time's (in a year) always the charm!

Snapshot of a Las Vegas Newspaper headlining the Pacquiao-De la Hoya done deal, taken by my brother Darwin.


Manny Pacquiao has sparred and fought with boxers taller than him, Nedal Hussein comes to mind...the dirty fighter Hussein who's a notch taller than De la Hoya, Manny won that fight despite being KOed by Hussein in the 4th round in October 2000, well the strength and power of the Pacman was just developing back then.

Win or lose Manny is the clear winner yes, but money isn't everything, mayaman ka nga pero ano maipagmamalaki mo sa mga anak at apo mo, 'anak dami kong milyones pero talo ako sa laban na yan' (You got millions of dollars but what can you tell your children and grandchildren ? that you earned millions because you loss ?) Of course, a victory over De la Hoya sweetenens not only Manny's legacy in the history of boxing but also as a personal pride to his children.

If there's someone who has the credibility and the authority to say that Pacquiao will win the fight against de la Hoya it's none other than Freddie Roach, who have trained De la Hoya and Pacquiao. I'll bet all my life savings that Manny will win this fight based not on Freddie Roach credibilty but based on Manny Pacquiao's flexibility as an indirect follower of Bruce Lee's principles. 'Be water, my friend...'
