FREDDIE ROACH: It's WHITE RICE & MALUNGGAY Leaves, not Steroids that Makes MANNY PACQUIAO STRONG

Freddie Roach says it is white rice and not steroids that make Manny Pacquiao strong. Also the 'malunggay' leaves in Manny's dishes that makes him stronger.


Floyd Mayweather Sr. accuses Manny Pacquiao of taking substances or power enhancing drugs particularly steroids in the Grand Rapids video interview (posted in the Pinoy Biscuits earlier).

Freddie Roach has also said that Manny Pacquiao was blood tested twice for substances and Manny hasn't tested positive yet.

Also in the video, San Diego Padres declared Manny Pacquiao Day

BOXING FANS, LET'S BOYCOTT the MAYWEATHER-MARQUEZ SEPTEMBER 19 Fight

The repetitive blows to the head of Floyd Mayweather Sr. have inevitably mashed his brain. The speech impediment is an obvious sign. It will not be surprising that in future TV interviews, there will be subtitles to help viewers understand him.



Even before the very first hit to his head, Floyd Sr, was not expected to articulate a scholarly dissertation but with his recent accusation that Manny Pacquiao is using a performance enhancing substance clearly shows that his intellectual capacity has reached nadir. There are no more neurons left to exercise any rational thought process. The space between his ears has become a vast wasteland akin to the day after a nuclear blast.



But is it really just the blows to the head? Or is it in the DNA. Even the most level- headed of the Mayweathers, Jeff, seems to give credence to the outrageous allegation.



If there is any performance enhancing substance Pacquiao is taking, it must be the world infamous balut. No need to explain, just Google it.



The Mayweathers are hitting below the belt. Boxing fans and specially the formidable Pacquiao fans worldwide, the Mayweathers can be hit where it hurts the most, the pocketbook.



Just say no to September 19 2009

Manny Pacquiao "Kumbinasyon" Huwag Pong Mabahala Sept. 6, 2009

"Kumbinasyon"
By Manny Pacquiao
Huwag Pong Mabahala
MANILA—Magandang araw po sa inyong lahat. Sana ay malugod ninyong matanggap ang aking pagbati at paghangad ng kaginhawaan ng kalusugan ng pag-iisip, pangangatawan.

Kahit na siguro araw-araw po ninyo akong nababasa sa mga pahayagan at nababalitaan ninyo ang aking bawat galaw, marami pa rin sa inyo ang hindi tunay na nakakakilala sa aking pagkatao dahil na rin sa marami at iba’t-ibang opinion na aking naririnig tungkol sa aking hindi pa pagsabak sa training para takdang laban sa November 14, sa Las Vegas,
Nevada.

Nitong darating pang mga araw, pilit kong tinatapos ang marami pang mga commitment bago kami tuluyang lumipad sa New York kasama ang aking koponan upang i-promote namin ni Miguel Cotto ng Puerto Rico ang aming laban sa MGM Grand Arena. Talaga rin namang hectic lagi ang aking schedule at kahit na enjoy akong sobra sa paggawa ng mga TV sit-com, commercials at pelikula, medyo nakakapagod din. Marami ang nagsasabi tuloy na parang binabale-wala ko ang paghahanda laban sa kampeon ng welterweight division.

Ang pagpaparatang sa akin na hindi ako seryoso sa aking laban kay Cotto ay lubhang masaklap pero sa isang banda, hindi ko masisi ang marami na mag-isip ng ganoon dahil na rin siguro sa pagmamalasakit sa akin. Kung minsan nga lang, ang lahat ng tao ay nagiging eksperto na rin sa pagbibigay ng kanilang opinion at inaayunan na rin ng marami.

Sa tinagal-tagal ko na sa pagboboksing, alam ko po ang aking sariling kakayahan at ang aking limitasyon. Marahil, nag-aalala lang kayo dahil sa mga balitang nagsimula nang magpa-kundisyon si Cotto kasama ang kaniyang grupo ng mga eksperto sa training, nutrition at conditioning.

Sa totoo lang po, hindi lumilipas ang isang araw na hindi ko iniisip si Cotto at kung ano ang aking gagawin upang labanan at talunin ang isang boxer na likas na mas malaki at malakas sa akin. Kung kayo po ay lubos na nag-aalala, alam kong natural lang iyan sa mga nagmamalasakit at nagmamahal sa akin. Huwag po kayong mabahala, everything is under control.

Marami ang marahil hindi pa nakakatanto na dahil malaking di-hamak si Cotto, mahalaga para sa kanya na mag-umpisang magbawas na ng timbang upang maeksakto ang 145 pounds na limit kung saan kami magtutuos. Dahil sa ako ay hindi likas na welterweight, hindi na ako lumalayo sa timbang na 145 at halos sampung pounds na lang ang layo ko sa catch-weight na iyan.

Kahit na matindi ang schedule namin sa shooting, hindi ko naman po inaabuso ang aking katawan at sa haba ng walong linggo ng training, tinitiyak kong sapat lang ang panahon upang maghanda kasama si coach Freddie. Opo, wala naman pong alitan sa pagitan namin ng aking coach na pilit ginagawan ng intriga ng ilan. Sa aking palagay po, ang Baguio City ang pinaka-safe na lugar upang mag-train sa ngayon at tatapusin namin ang lahat sa Wild Card gym sa Los Angeles.

Sa mga hindi pa po nakakaalam, kapag naumpisahan ko nang mag-ensayo, wala nang makakapigil sa akin. At sa walong linggo, ipinapangako kong makukuha kong abutin ang 100 percent condition upang maiwagayway muli natin ang ating bandila at sabay-sabay tayong magsasaya bilang isang bansa sa ilalim ng iisang Diyos.

Hanggang sa Muling Kumbinasyon. God Bless Us All.

MANNY PACQUIAO will start training for MIGUEL COTTO Fight - Sept. 7, 2009

It will be the last shooting day for the Pacman tomorrow Sept. 8, 2009 and after that he will start training for his upcoming fight against Puerto Rico's Miguel Cotto in Nov. 14, 2009.

Manny Pacquiao is still finishing all his showbiz commitments. Manny had just finished two movies 'Wapakman' and 'Pangarap Kong Jackpot' and on his last day of taping of the season one of the TV sit-com 'Show Me Da Manny'.

I just hope Manny Pacquiao knows what he's doing and doesn't put his upcoming fight lightly, Miguel Cotto isn't a pushover and the man from Puerto Rico means business because he has been training for a month now while the Pacman is busy making movies.

Walt Disney Co. and Marvel Entertainment Inc. Join Force

Walt Disney buys Marvel Entertainment Inc. for $4 Billion! Wow

It's the kind of merger that would get DC Comics jealous and I am just happy about it. Anything Disney and anything Marvel are some of my favorite icons. Imagine seeing Wolverine, Spider-man, the Incredible Hulk, Captain America, Iron Man inside Disneyland theme parks. I am sure there would be a conflict of interests between theme parks of Disney and Universal Studios because some Marvel characters can be seen inside Universal Studios theme parks.
Some insiders say that Warner Bros. company who owns the DC character rights haven't done anything to push its DC characters to another level. I'd rather see Spider-man mingling with Mickey Mouse than Superman with Donald Duck. With the merger of Disney and Marvel expect wonders and amazing attractions to be unveiled in the future.

Disney buys Marvel for $4B

Spider-Man joins Mickey Mouse

WASHINGTON – The Walt Disney Co. added "Spider-Man," "Iron Man" and the "X-Men" to its vast cast of characters on Monday with a surprise agreement to buy Marvel Entertainment Inc. for some $4 billion.

The deal, Disney's biggest since its acquisition of animation house Pixar three years ago, will combine the comic book giant and its huge stable of action heroes with the entertainment empire of Mickey Mouse.

"Adding Marvel to Disney’s unique portfolio of brands provides significant opportunities for long-term growth and value creation," Disney president and chief executive Robert Iger said. "We are pleased to bring this talent and these great assets to Disney."

Disney and Marvel, in a joint statement, said that Marvel shareholders would receive a total of $30 per share in cash plus approximately 0.745 Disney shares for each Marvel share they own.

It said that based on the closing price of Disney stock on Friday, the transaction value is $50 per Marvel share or approximately $4 billion.

Shares of Marvel soared 25.36 percent in New York and were trading at $48.45 near the close of trading. Disney shares were trading 2.61 percent lower at $26.14.

The deal, which caught analysts and the market by surprise, was announced shortly before the opening bell on Wall Street.

Besides "Spider-Man," "Iron Man" and the "X-Men," Marvel's cast of over 5,000 characters includes "Captain America," the "Fantastic Four" and "Thor."

Marvel chief executive Ike Perlmutter said Disney is "the perfect home for Marvel’s fantastic library of characters given its proven ability to expand content creation and licensing businesses.

"This is an unparalleled opportunity for Marvel to build upon its vibrant brand and character properties by accessing Disney’s tremendous global organization and infrastructure around the world," he said.

Disney and Marvel said Perlmutter would continue to oversee the Marvel properties, which include Marvel Studios, Marvel Animation and Marvel Comics.

Perlmutter will "work directly with Disney’s global lines of business to build and further integrate Marvel’s properties," their joint statement said.

Disney and Marvel said the boards of directors of both companies have approved the transaction but it still needs the green light from US anti-trust authorities and Marvel shareholders.

Iger said the companies hope to conclude the deal by the end of the year.

He compared the purchase of Marvel to Disney's 2006 acquisition of Pixar Animation for 7.4 billion dollars, saying it presents "similar opportunities."

Pixar is the San Francisco-area studio behind such hits such as "Toy Story," "A Bug's Life," "Finding Nemo," "Ratatouille," "WALL-E" and "Up."

The agreement drew a thumbs-up from most analysts.

"Strategically, we view Marvel as a good fit for Disney," said Hale Holden of Barclays Capital. "We expect Disney to drive synergies across the Marvel characters at its parks and cable networks."

Standard and Poor's announced however that it was putting Disney's long-term 'A' corporate credit rating and short-term 'A-1' rating on credit watch with negative implications.

"In our view, Disney may need to issue debt to supplement its cash for this transaction," the ratings company said.

Marvel is celebrating its 70th anniversary this year. It was founded in 1939 as comic book publisher Timely Comics.

Besides comics, Marvel characters also feature in movies, animated features, videogames and toys such as action figures.
