    Kaso nga eto, before the fight pa lang "namigay" na si Pacman. Galante pala talaga ito sa mga "friendsters" nya..........Grabe! Free hotel accomodations at namigay pa ng iPhones.

    Santa Claus!..........Well, pera nya yan eh. Wala na tayong magagawa riyan.

    Here's a few lines from PhilStar's Joaquin Henson column before Pacman's fight:

    "The night before the weigh-in, he was preoccupied with making sure his relatives, friends and fans had tickets and accommodations. Pacquiao should be spared from the stress of allocating tickets and checking if there are enough rooms available for his guests at least a week before a fight.

    A source said Pacquiao spent $150,000 of his own money for tickets to give and also coughed up some more dough for at least 10 hotel rooms. The same source added he treated some 10 friends to free i-phones (about $500 each).

    Pacquiao also spent a tidy sum to provide plane tickets for guests. In his fight contract, the promoters gave him only 10 hotel rooms and 10 plane tickets. Anything more than that was for Pacquiao’s account."

    Zero crime rate on day of Pacquiao-Barrera rematch
    By Julie M. Aurelio

    Last updated 06:39pm (Mla time) 10/08/2007

    MANILA, Philippines -- The National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) on Monday reported a zero crime rate in Metro Manila during Sunday's seven-hour telecast of boxing champ's Manny Pacquiao's fight with Mexican pugilist Marco Antonio Barrera.
    Newly installed NCRPO chief Police Director Geary Barias noted there were no reported incidents in all precincts and stations on Sunday afternoon, despite the heightened alert.

    "Sana ganito palagi, tahimik, maluwag ang kalsada at walang anumang insidenteng nagaganap kahit na walang laban ang ating people's champion (If only it were always like this -- peaceful, no traffic in the streets and no crime whatsoever -- fight or no fight)," Metro Manila's top cop said.

    Top boxer Pacquiao on Sunday won by unanimous decision over his Mexican opponent in a historic bout at the posh Mandalay Bay in the city of Las Vegas, Nevada.
    Barias said his visits to the different police stations in Metro Manila revealed practically zero incidents recorded in police blotters during the seven hour delayed telecast on Sunday afternoon.

    He however assured the public that despite the merrymaking after Pacquiao's victory, cops in Metro Manila still went on with their regular duties and operations during the boxing match.

    "We cannot also afford to lower our [guard] because there are always those lawless elements who will take advantage of the situation while everybody else is glued to their TV sets," Barias added.

    He said the police had expected a zero crime or incident rate during the Pacquiao-Barrera rematch, given past experience during Pacquiao's other bouts.
    Barias took over the NCRPO last week from ex-chief Deputy Director General Reynaldo Varilla, who was reassigned to head the operations division of the Philippine National Police (PNP) in Camp Crame.
    The new NCRPO chief earlier announced that he would adopt a "micro-operational approach” in lowering the incidence of street crimes in Metro Manila by bringing down the police's resources to the precinct level.
    "We will utilize our men in the precincts to be able to give the same kind of service we give to residents of posh villages and in slum areas," Barias said last week.
    Barias formerly headed Task Force Usig and also served as director for investigation and detective management and as director for comptrollership of the PNP.
    He claimed resources such as funds, gas and other logistics will be set aside for police precincts in Metro Manila to help beat and foot patrollers carry out their duties.
    "As much as possible, we want cops to be just a kilometer away from the citizens," he said, adding that he will conduct dialogues at the precincts to identify their problems.

    [SIZE="4"]P308-M Payday for Pacquiao![/SIZE]

    LAS VEGAS -- Manny Pacquiao earned a whopping $7 million (about P308 million) from his recent fight with Mexican legend Marco Antonio Barrera, according to a source close to the Filipino ring celebrity.

    The source, who is part of Pacquiao’s entourage in the United States, said the hard-hitting southpaw collected as much as $3 million in prize money, $2 million from United States pay-per-view sales and another $2 million from his share of the local pay-per-view pie.

    The fight’s co-promoters, Top Rank and Golden Boy Promotions, officially pegged Pacquiao’s fight purse at $2 million.

    The source, however, said Pacquiao was assured of an amount “very close to $3 million” after his abrupt decision to train for the Barrera fight in Cebu two months ago.

    Meanwhile, the Pacman could be headed to more mega-buck bouts, triggering a scramble among a slew of elite fighters to book a ticket opposite the Filipino.

    Another Team Pacquiao source said there are plans to increase to at least four per year the number of times he fights in the next two years. And the cash windfall he normally gets from his fights could turn into a hurricane.

    The leading candidate as Pacquiao’s next foe, though, is World Boxing Council lightweight champ David Diaz.

    “I would like to go up to the 135-lb division and challenge David Diaz for his WBC title,” Pacquiao told Filipino reporters after a Mass was said Monday inside his suite on the 61st floor of The Hotel at the Mandalay Bay.

    “Then I could go down anytime to 130-pounds to fight anybody,” he added, opening the doors to a possible rematch with WBC super featherweight king Juan Manuel Marquez.

    It is the fight against Diaz, though, that promises a hefty payday for the Pacman.

    Former Pacquiao manager Shelley Finkel said -- after the Filipino won his match against Erik Morales in November last year -- that hurdling Barrera would serve as the Pacman’s ticket to multimillion fight deals. He also said Pacquiao could be eligible for $5 million paydays.

    The other fighters who want to be Pacquiao’s next foe include WBA superfeatherweight champ Edwin Valero, WBO superfeatherweight king Joan Guzman, WBA lightweight champ Juan Diaz, WBO lightweight king Michael Katsidis, and even WBA featherweight champ Chris John of Indonesia.

    No parade for Manila this time...

    'Manny-la,' no; champ to call on Arroyo, Atienza

    MANILA, Philippines--MANILA IS "MANNY-LA" no more, and neither will there be motorcades.

    Citing "prior commitments," Filipino boxing sensation Manny Pacquiao will skip a hero's welcome in Manila when he returns home at daybreak Thursday after skillfully demolishing Mexico's Marco Antonio Barrera in the United States on Saturday night.

    Pacquiao's handlers relayed his decision Wednesday to the city government, once ruled by one of his staunchest patrons, Lito Atienza, who is now environment secretary.

    "It's disappointing because we have made the initial preparations already for a hero's welcome for him," said Mayor Alfredo Lim, who defeated Atienza's son Ali in the May elections.

    "I don't know the reason," Lim said in Filipino at a National Press Club forum.

    Pacquiao owes P120,000 in concessionaire's fees to City Hall, which was incurred by his Knockout Bar in Baywalk along Roxas Boulevard. The bar and other business establishments in the area were dismantled shortly after Lim's election win.

    The mayor has remained firm that he will not rescind the boxing champion's debt.

    Debt of gratitude
    Pacquiao, though, seemed inclined to pay a debt of gratitude anew to Atienza, who had seen him rise to his current status. The boxer had given his word to the former mayor to show up exclusively at the Department of Environment and Natural Resources office and at Malacañang after the fight with Barrera.

    Atienza was at ringside when Pacquiao fought Barrera in Las Vegas, Nevada. He returned to the country Wednesday.

    On Monday, the DENR confirmed that it would roll out the red carpet for Pacquiao upon his return, the first time it would honor a sports icon.

    The boxing idol is expected to arrive at 5:30 a.m. Thursday at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport's Centennial Terminal on a Philippine Airlines Flight PR-103 from Los Angeles. He had earlier been set to come home on Friday.

    Airport officials have placed a security detail for Pacquiao and made arrangements for media coverage.

    "There won't be any motorcades," Atienza told reporters. "He just wants the usual warmth we give to him, because Manny is one of us."

    A red carpet on the DENR lobby and huge streamers on the facade of the newly spruced building, however, awaits the 28-year-old Pacquiao.

    Not proper time?
    Asked about the cancellation of a planned motorcade in Manila after Pacquiao turned it down, Atienza said: "They probably did not invite him at the proper time."

    "The coordination is tight. And no matter how you'd want to invite Manny, he has to make sure his schedule allows it," he added.

    The environment secretary said he stopped short of asking Quezon City Mayor Feliciano Belmonte to organize a motorcade for Pacquiao Thursday to avoid loose political talk.

    From the airport, Pacquiao, together with his wife and entourage, is expected to head for the Renaissance Hotel in Makati City. After a rest, he will proceed to the DENR office and later to Malacañang.

    Earlier, Lim offered to host Pacquiao at City Hall and ordered his officials to arrange a motorcade for him around the city, as was done previously by his predecessor, Atienza.

    'Maybe, on next fight'
    In a text message, the boxer's business manager, Eric Pineda, Wednesday confirmed to city administrator Jesus Mari Marzan that the champion had "prior commitments" and could not grace the event.

    "Maybe we can do it on his next fight," the message read.

    Marzan said he immediately placed an overseas call to Pineda to confirm the message, but the official received the same reply that Pacquiao's "welcome party" had been arranged a month ago.

    "There will be no more preparations, because it's all centered on Manny. If he's not coming, then there's no need to plan (a hero's welcome) ... We have to respect their wishes," Lim said.

    The mayor said he was not blaming the ring superstar, but expressed sadness that Manila residents would not be able to see him this time.

    Despite the rejection, Lim said banners and streamers would still be put up in strategic places in the city, including the whole stretch of Roxas Boulevard, to congratulate Pacquiao for his victory.

    He said his offer to host Pacquiao would still remain. "As long as they want it, we are here all the time to give a warm welcome. It's because of the honor he carries, for the nation and our people," he said in Filipino.

    Giddy with excitement
    On Wednesday, DENR employees were giddy with excitement about Pacquiao's courtesy call on Atienza. They were preparing to shower him with confetti.

    Atienza said "this has been the tradition at Manila City Hall in almost eight years. He'd come to City Hall before anything else to get a warm reception from the very appreciative City Hall employees."

    Pacquiao himself has made it a point to visit Atienza, whom he looks up to as a father figure, before and after a fight.

    "This is a personal thing between my family and his family. The most natural thing for him is to come home, and he will motor here," said the environment secretary, who became close to Pacquiao through his son Ali in the late 1990s.

    "Win or lose, he comes to us to talk about his fight.... He'll talk about his fight and the treacherous blow that he got from Barrera," said Atienza.

    From the DENR, Atienza will accompany Pacquiao to Malacañang.

    The bout with Barrera was "very critical" because Pacquiao wanted a second conquest and a rebound from a stinging loss in the May 14 congressional elections in South Cotabato, according to Atienza.

    "Defeating Barrera started him on the path of stardom. It was a question of supremacy," Atienza said. "After his frustrated experimentation in politics, deep within him, he wanted to win."
