Did you watch it Saturday night? The Big Fight? The Fight of the Century no less? Personally, I didn’t; it was very expensive and a man in the pub persuaded me that watching people take punches to the head was morally wrong. But however you feel about the fight itself it’s impossible to deny the thrill of an event that’s captured imaginations worldwide.
The most enjoyable bit of footage I’ve watched has come from the Pacquiao camp, with sponsors Nike following his exhaustive training regime. Like a good Rocky montage Manny runs, jumps, skips, sparrs and executes a mind-blowing number of sit-ups, and still manages to find time to sign autographs for his fans. Sure he lost, but what a dude!
