Will the Pacquiao-Solis fight push through?

Golden Boy Promotions is seeking a court injunction to stop the fight between Manny Pacquiao and Mexican Jorge Solis in San Antonio, Texas on April 14. The irony of it is that GMA TV and Solar Sports were also announcing a deal of their partnership in broadcasting the fight in the Philippines. As with past fight, this one comes with agony over his preparations cramming and being not fully committed. Although that can also be seen as a publicity stint.

Back in General Santos politics, Pacquiao gave away free health cards to fellow town citizens. His opponents were complaining but he can't be made liable by Comelec as he is not officially a candidate yet. Despite his glamorous beginnings, Pacquiao is know for getting into trouble with his career management. Observers now asked, "will Pacquiao do any better in politics?" This is a growing sentiment as Pacquiao finally decided to run for Congress.
