I know it’s hard to believe, but Manny Pacquiao has haters. So jealous and envious of his achievements that they have to find the littlest things to nitpick to discredit him saying things like he drains fighters, is the catchweight king, is taking steroids, he fights fighters coming off a loss or washed up, etc.
Pacquiao is loved by many but the few that hate him are a despicable bunch because they make up rumors to slander his name out of jealousy, maybe their fighter isn’t getting much praise compared to Manny and it pisses them off?
The haters who don’t wanna let go of the past and constantly dislike Manny Pacquiao calling him the catchweight king, or a hyped up fighter, remember this, Manny Pacquiao used to fight at 126 pounds and even before the Oscar De La Hoya fight people said even a “WASHED UP” Oscar De La Hoya will beat up a blown up super-featherweight in Manny Pacquiao.
Remember after the fight when Pacquiao beat Oscar, the excuses came in, instead of crediting Manny Pacquiao for the win the haters had to make up some lies about Oscar not being allowed to gain weight after weigh-ins, that was all BS started by a Pacquiao hater and possibly a Floyd Mayweather Jr. fan.
Why can’t they give this man credit? All we can do is speculate, we will never know the real reason unless they reveal it to us.
But tonight at Cowboys Stadium when Manny Pacquiao steps into that ring against Antonio Margarito he will be facing yet again another bigger guy and this time he gives up a major height, reach and weight advantage.
Win or lose against Antonio Margarito, Manny Pacquiao deserves credit for what he has done in his boxing career. He has won 7 titles in 7 different weight classes, he won 4 titles in the original boxing weight classes of 112, 126, 135, and 147 pounds, and has beaten men far bigger than himself — overcoming size with his speed and skill.
Most importantly why I believe Manny Pacquiao is so special is because he fights to inspire those who grew up with nothing like he did, to show them if you fight and never quit you can accomplish your dream no matter how big the obstacle is there is always a way around it.
