SPORTS: Pacquiao: The passion of the ring, Showdown with American Jessie Vargas

Jesse Vargas and Manny Pacquiao

Senator Manny Pacquiao is a busy man but in this busy world the act that you are busy translates itself to mean that you are gainfully employed and flourishing too at the same time.

And, this analogy could not be more applicable to anyone more than Manny Pacquiao, the boxer turned politician people has added to his popularity and his packed schedule is simply overloaded because he has taken up public service and has been serving as a Senator to give something back to his homeland.

If you do anything sincerely, it requires time and effort to do a reasonable job and politics is one hell of a complex job. But, profession and occupation always come first; so, it was nothing surprising that Pacquiao announced that he was likely to be in the thick of action soon; there were plans afoot to fight in the ring to challenge the current Welterweight champion of the world Jesse Vargas.

Hence, a bout has been arranged during November 2016 to make a go at the Welterweight title. Disclosing more details he stated that the final details would come later but it has been firmly fixed up.

The main details were sorted out and a final decision was confirmed to hold the fight in November after an extensive meeting stretching to more than two hours was conducted in Makati under the tutelage of the renowned fight promoter Bob Arum on Tuesday night.

The fight for the Welterweight crown is slated for a November 5 showdown as indicated by the Senator who is a neophyte Senator and this is the first time that he will be fighting a bout after his election to the house.

It is very easy to understand the passion that he mentioned while announcing the upcoming engagement; after all, he is a sportsman and it is quite common to miss the involvement with the sport which is your first love, a comeback bid is always irresistible when you feel and know that you still have it you to give the sport and your motherland, something to applaud and cherish.

He went on to add that, since Boxing happened to be his passion, he had been missing it quite a lot; most of all THE WORKOUTS IN THE GYMNASIUM. I miss what I’d been doing inside the gym and atop the ring,” he said.

A Wednesday announcement just mentioned that Senator Manny Pacquiao had agreed to a title bout with the current reigning World Welterweight champion and title-holder of the W
