caloycomment: Boxing is alive in Cebu. The more promotions, the merrier. It is a good thing to see many promoters helping the quest in finding the next Manny Pacquiao. The major networks are also helping in giving our current crop of future world champions a venue to showcase their ring savvy and potential. If you have nothing to do tomorrow night, go watch some BOXING. :)
