God answered my prayer for Manny Pacquiao.
Because at the end of the boxing rematch last Sunday between him and Timothy Bradley, I heard the words I was hoping to hear.
And these words, which are music to my ears, and perhaps to every Filipino boxing fan, say “Pacquiao defeats Bradley in their rematch.”
I thank God for this answered prayer. And I thank Him even more for making Pacquiao’s victory sweet.
I say Pacquiao’s victory in this rematch is sweet, because he did not only get his championship belt back from Bradley, but he also gave him a taste of his first ever loss in his boxing career.
Now it is crystal clear that Pacquiao is the true champion between him and Bradley.
The next rematch I am hoping to watch is the fifth fight between Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez.
And I am sure in their fifth fight, which I am hoping to happen soon, it will be Pacquiao who will emerge victorious.
But, for now, I will rejoice and join everyone in congratulating and thanking Pacquiao for his sweet victory against Bradley.
And so for Pacquiao, congratulations and thank you for your well-deserved victory.
