Filipinos Celebrate Online as Manny Pacquiao Wins Fight vs. Margarito

(Monitoring feed at Twazzup)

I haven't watched a live Manny Pacquiao fight on television for quite sometime now. Twitter has served as my theatre as dedicated fans of the match tweet blow-by-blow developments. Although with more folks using Twitter and boxing fans of both camps active online, tweets have surged to thousands per minute when it used to be in the hundreds.

Like in real world fights, it is also amazing to see fans of Floyd Mayweather Jr. still turning down the Pacman for his ability to fight. I guess they can't stand the attention and love that Pacquaio is getting right now.

I will leave the blow-by-blow coverage to the experts. But for now, I encourage all Pacquiao fans to celebrate this victory by giving congratulatory words to the "Pambansang Kamao".

On my end, I will savor this Pacquiao victory reading the feeds of Pacquiao followers cheering right now via:
  • Google (monitor the latest news and updates about Pacquiao as they appear today)
  • Twazzup (you will find Hollywood celebrities tweeting Pacquiao)
  • Twitoaster (follow-up on threads missed earlier like Mommy Dionisia watching the fight for the first time)
  • Trendsmap (shows Pacquiao being discussed in different parts of the world)
  • Trendistic (shows that 3% tweets were about Pacquiao from start of day to an hour after fight.)
  • Crowdeye  (more than 37k tweets as of this writing)
  • What the Hashtag (#pacquiao hashtag was used by more than 3k Twitter users today)
  • Amplicate (96% said they love Pacquiao)
Oh and don't forget to visit our Manny Pacquiao fan page and leave a congratulatory note for the Pacman. Congratulations Manny!

Win a Manny Pacquiao versus Antonio Margarito fight pay-per-view ticket, watch at SM Mall of Asia

A few years back, we watched a pay-per-view fight of Manny Pacquiao at SM Cinema North EDSA. It was my first then where Pacquiao won the fight by unanimous decision. For sure, for those fights where technical knock-out or TKO is achieved, the energy in the theatre would be totally different. For those who want that kind of experience, here is your chance of winning a pay-per-view ticket at SM Mall of Asia courtesy of Alaxan FR.
  1. Like the Alaxan FR Facebook page.
  2. Take a picture of you wearing the new Alaxan FR Pacman Tshirt and make that your default Facebook profile photo. (here's how you can get the shirt)
  3. From November 8 to 12, wait for the announcement of Alaxan FR Facebook page when you can post words (at least 100 characters) of encouragement for Manny Pacquiao. The first 5 posts each day will win one (1) free pay per view ticket of the Manny Pacquiao vs. Antonio Margarito fight at SM Mall of Asia ONLY.
Check out the announcement at Alaxan FR Facebook page.

WatchPad users can watch Pacquiao vs. Margarito fight live, free, no commercial breaks

My PLDT DSL Internet connection at home is quite slow these days and working on an upgrade of connection speed to 768 kbps or higher so I can have the option viewing the Pacquiao-Margarito fight as being offered now by PLDT. This means plan 990 subscribers will need to upgrade to plan 1299.

WatchPad users can reserve their slot on or before November 8, 2010 at

For non-WatchPad users like me, one can sign-up at

I hope that WatchPad can extend their promotion for this. For more updates, you can “like” WatchPad on Facebook or follow them on Twitter.

Best of all, WatchPad users can watch the fight live, free and with no commercial breaks.

With Manny Pacquiao now serving the country as a Congressman, I am quite nervous with his chances on this fight knowing also that Margarito is one big boxer and known for some "tactics". But hopefully, with Filipinos love and prayers for the PacMan, I hope our champion will once again prevail on this fight.
