The conspiracy continues!
First is the grand larceny last June 9 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
Second is the World Boxing Organization released the result of its pointless review and re-scoring of the fight telling the world that Manny Pacquiao won handily over Timothy Bradley but only for the WBO to assert its rules “which don’t allow the bout being overturned under whatever circumstances.” Paco Valcarcel nails it down hard and proudly in few words, “The only thing that we can do is authorize a rematch. We cannot go any further than that. That is our rules.. If they want to make a rematch, we will approve a rematch, and if they don’t, we will order one.”
Then suddenly those who are “in cahoots” have the gull to talk in serious tone about a “compelling” rematch this coming November as the WBO announced its “findings” and as they heard Pacquiao say in ESPN interview: “My supporters shouldn’t worry, we’re going to get that title” (alluding to an immediate rematch).
Shame of all shame!
Does everything have to always end up in rules when such rules over rule sanity?
If it is bad to call for a Pacquiao-Bradley rematch before “the review,” how much can the call get even worse to being hellish, now that it was “proven” that Manny won or “money” won? The WBO is done with its part going through the motion just to reinforce absurdity and injustice further, giving way to the grandest of grand conspiracies in boxing.
But we saw it coming.
These reprobates and apostates are probably thinking that majority of us are foolish enough to succumb to their schemes when only stray cats and dogs in the city jungles could have the inclination to follow their path, neck-chained.
It’s like a moronic father who learned from outside sources that his son is deep into addiction of illegal substance. So he conducted an investigation with relatives just to find out the truth of his son’s addiction with overwhelming evidences.
But the father simply shrugged off and said: “Well it’s an established fact, I admit my son is into a vicious vice. I am deeply saddened. But I cannot do anything about it because he insists on his addiction after having talked to him for hours, otherwise he might revolt and rebel. It’s his life anyway. Lest I become a dictator, the least I can do is allow my son space to decide for himself and “authorize” him another chance at life. I surely can’t make him quit his addiction by force because the freedom to choose is fundamental in human liberty. Everyone should be accorded such basic right under all circumstances. I am cautious not to violate human rights and if I’m careless, I may even be accused of child abuse.”
Folly of all folly.
That’s how stupid laws or people can be. And that’s exactly how they’ve been doing it in boxing to fool the fans with corrupted rules. Worse, the promoters and their cohorts can so conveniently carry out their masterful boxing “business” plans each time in connivance with some so-called “influential” personalities in the sport, and with the willing consent and backing of the narrow-minded sector of media well along with the support voice of equally beleaguered “experts.”
Good that the WBO came out strongly with their stand not to overturn the erroneous, rather anomalous, decision of the judges in the Pacquiao-Bradley farce because it further strengthens the argument for the world and the entire boxing community to demand the WBO’s abolition with the government’s intervention. The WBO as a sports sanctioning body has no right to stay a day longer unless they change WBO’s meaning to World Bullying Organization. By their mere one-sided “injustice-laden” and “corruption-laden” rule, we as a people have every legitimate and moral ground to “occupy boxing,” just for now.
The WBO’s “rules” obviously and deliberately provide space for wrongdoing and such seemingly tiny insignificant space is worth millions and millions of dirty dollars going into pockets of crooks, straight from the hard-earned money of the innocent unsuspecting fans.
This is no perspective aimed at appeasing the storm by confusion back to status quo, but purely common sense perspective intending to put boxing back to earth. Nothing or nobody could certainly make any headway stepping forward without his feet on the ground. We better heed reason and the truth to stand on solid clay, even in boxing.
If the problem is the people’s hunger, you don’t commit genocide. You feed them. And if the problem is the rule, you overturn the rule to make things right and have life simple. Hence by doing so, you overturn the Pacquiao-Bradley verdict to do justice to the sport and the people, officially. Then we move on.
The world is full of lions, but the world needs Daniels anyway, and those who have the courage to refuse bowing to false gods and to the “one-sided” idolatrous decree of King Darius.
