Pacquiao will run!

By Nick Giongco

Manny Pacquiao reiterated on Monday his desire to run for public office when the Philippines holds its national elections in May of 2010. The boxing star told a handful of scribes from Manila Bulletin, Star and Inquirer–the Philippines’ major broadsheets–that there’s no turning back from his decision to seek the congressional seat in the province of Saranggani, in the island of Mindanao. Pacquiao’s wife Jinkee hails from the town of Kiamba, while the pound-for-pound king is a native of neighboring General Santos City. “I have been preparing for this since 2008,” said Pacquiao after he graced an event in a downtown Manila hotel. Pacquiao had tried to wrest the same post in his native South Cotabato but failed after being denied by Darlene Antonino-Custodio. Meanwhile, Pacquiao also revealed his choice for the next Philippine president during the same interview. “I would like Lito Atienza (the Philippines’ secretary of natural resources and a dear Pacquiao friend) to be the next Philippine president,” said the 30-year-old fighter. “Lito Atienza is pro-people and God-fearing.” Pacquiao’s next fight is not yet etched in stone but ringsiders are looking at Nov. 14 as the date of his much-awaited return to the ring possibly against Miguel Cotto of Puerto Rico.

You are about to fight in South Africa – the land of your birth against former world title challenger Phillip Ndou. What are your thoughts in boxing in South Africa where your boxing career began?

Campillo upsets Garay!

Claims WBA light heavyweight title

By Lee Bates

In a stunner, now former WBA light heavyweight champion Hugo Garay of Argentina (32-4, 17 KOs) was defeated last night by challenger Gabriel Campillo of Spain (18-2, 6 KOs) in Sunchales, Santa Fe, Argentina by majority decision. Garay came out very strong for the first six rounds of the fight throwing a large volume of punches and simply outworking the retreating Campillo for the most part. The southpaw Campillo was blocking a lot of the punches and moderately throwing some in return while circling from left to right. It appeared that it was Campillo’s strategy to tire Garay out and it appeared to work. From round seven on Campillo seemed like a different fighter as he became the aggressor and was snapping Garay’s head back on several occasions from his southpaw stance. Garay showed heart but tired down the stretch. In the end, the judges had it 115-114 and 114-113 for Campillo and 114-114.

All three judges scored the contest 29-28, two awarding the bout to Sanchez, and one to Guida.

The second Ultimate Fighter trophy would be claimed by James Wilks, who submitted Andre Winner with a rear naked choke with less than ten seconds left in the first round. (more…)
