Any fight fan (even the most casual sports fan) knew about the Mayweather – Pacquiao fight on Saturday night. It was called the fight of the century, and the world was watching.
You bet I forked over the pay-per-view to see it… I order most fights anyway so you know I wouldn’t miss this one!”

This dude holds a political office in the Philippines, has played professional basketball and recorded pop music – and he’s a world champion boxer. A few years ago, he was living the life you would expect of a person who has both fame and fortune. The party scene. Bars. Gambling. Women.
