In the last 6 moths, we saw Pacman in a different state. He is singing and praising God. We have always seen him going to church and attending masses especially before and after his fights. But Pacman himself revealed that in the past months he turned his back on his ugly ways. He no longer gambles, drinks, or womanizes. He looks so much at peace now and closer to God.
What can I say about his defeat now? It's the "baptism of fire". He may have been in the ring for the longest time already, but this is his first time fighting in the ring as a true soldier of the Almighty. Every soldier has to undergo baptize de feu. How he faces this stunning defeat is the real test of his heart.
No matter what the outcome has been, Filipinos still adore and love the world's only holder of 8 titles in 8 weight divisions in boxing. One snatched belt is something. But hey, he still has 7 belts. LOL. He can always get it back, right? Who can say what's in store for Pacman?
Here's our fireworks. We still celebrate your "more important" personal victory!
