The Punch Heard Around the World

Everyone watched as boxer Manny Pacquiao fell face first into the canvas after one mean punch in the sixth round from rival Juan Manuel Marquez. After the Dec. 8th bout in Las Vegas, Internet memes and jokes about the boxing congressman were heard around the world, but according to his wife, Jinkee, he has nothing left to prove to the boxing world, and I agree. The 33-year-old Pacquiao is a former eight-division champion who has 17 years of fighting tucked away under his championship belt. I feel that the Nike spokesman deserves a bit more respect, with a list of accomplishments including a lengthy boxing career, multiple television advertisements, a singing career, a movie, and not to mention his political prowess in the Philippines. We say fight on, Manny!
