« on: May 19, 2009, 10:16:50 PM »
Nabasa nyo na ito?

talagang disciplanado sa katawan ni Manny.. idol talaga.
basahin nyo...

What’s your regular workout?

“I don’t do boxing; I play basketball.”

Of course, iba ang workout mo when you are preparing for a fight.

“Iba. Ibang-iba. I jog in the morning as warm-up.”

Nagbo-ballroom-dancing ka ba like Aling Dionisia?

“No, I don’t.”

There are offers (daw) for Aling Dionisia to do a TV show or a movie. Will you let her?

“Kung saan siya masaya, doon ako.”

She will soon shoot (daw) a TV commercial for a laundry soap. Okay lang ba sa’yo?

“Okay lang.”

What’s your diet before a fight?

“Filipino food. Dapat hindi pabago-bago ang kinakain mo.”

What part of your body is your favorite?

(Smiles) “What do you think?”

Of course, your left hand. It’s lethal, pamatay.

“Dati, I often used my left hand. But I have started also using my right hand. During my last fight, I used my right hand for the first time at okay naman.”

So, Hatton was the first victim of your right hook.

“Yes, si Hatton.”

How do you take care of your hands?

“Nothing special. I exercise my hands by just opening and closing them.”

You’re cracking your knuckles. Hindi ba masama ‘yon?

“I don’t think so.”

What part of your body is vulnerable?

“My muscles.”
How much sleep do you get per night?

“When I’m training, I get from seven to eight hours.”

What’s the last thing that you do before you go to sleep?

“I eat and rest a little. And then, tulog na.”

And the first thing that you do when you wake up?

“Brush my teeth.”

What’s your favorite sleep wear?

“Jogging pants.”

Do you sleep with the air-con turned on full blast?

“Yes, malamig. Mga 70 degrees (Fahrenheit).”

What are the upside and downside of being a superstar? Time has chosen you as one of The 100 Most Influential People in the World.

“Siempre, kapag sikat ka maraming taong humahanga sa’yo. I like that. But now, I can’t go around the mall anymore without attracting attention, so I don’t go to the mall anymore.”

But you have bodyguards. How many do you have ba?


How do you unwind? Do you get a massage; do you go to the spa?

“Hindi ako nagpapamasahe; di rin ako pumupunta sa spa. I’d rather spend my free time with my family.” (The Pacquiaos have just bought a $2.1-M house in L.A., occupying one thousand square meters, with four bedrooms upstairs and a den downstairs. According to a Funfare DPA, the house is exclusive for the family and the rented condo unit in Beverly Hills is open to Team Pacquiao when Manny is training for a fight.)

How do you cope with stress?

“I listen to music.”

Are athletes supposed to abstain from sex before a game/fight?

“Oo. Dapat lang.”

Mga how many weeks before a game/fight?

“At least 20 days before a fight.”

Si Jinkee ba kaya kang i-knock-out?

(Doesn’t answer; only smiles)

In the GMA action-adventure Totoy Bato, you play almost a real-life role. Which is harder, acting or boxing?

(Smiles) “Ano sa tingin mo?”

You are good at both, even in singing.

“Mas mahirap ang boxing. Totohanan ‘yon, eh.”

What are your bathroom habits?

“I just take a shower.”

Don’t you sing in the bathroom? Don’t you rehearse in the bathroom since you are also a singer?

“No, I don’t. Basta ligo lang talaga.”

You always pray in your corner of the ring during a fight. Do you have a special prayer?

“Wala naman. I just pray for my safety, na huwag ako mapahamak, na sana iligtas Niya ako.”

Do you have a favorite saint?

“Wala naman. When I pray, diretso kay Lord.”

What’s one thing that you can’t do without?

“Bukod sa wallet ko, palagi akong may dalang rosary.”
