​Today, we cheer for Uncle Sardo and take a moment to appreciate. Without Uncle Sardo, there would be no Manny. And tomorrow evening, Manny will make the Philippines stand still for one last time.

In Defence of a Progressive Society

In some sense, Pacquiao is only a product of his upbringing in the same way that we all are. Nonetheless we can consciously change the environment of any upbringing. In doing so, we make wider and more forceful efforts in society at large to collectively foster considerate and mindful approaches to homosexuality, something which is to me necessarily progressive.

Boxing is sport in its rawest, most primitive form - two men, in a cage, trying to beat each into next Christmas, until one of them falls down and can't get up. It is a mind numbingly simple equation. Mayweather v Pacquiao didn't offer us much more than that brutality. It's a sign of how boxing has fallen.

In the run up to Floyd Mayweather Jr's eagerly anticipated fight with Manny Pacquiao, lighting up the billboards of boxing websites, I wanted to find out how Mayweather Jr compares with the great boxing Welterweights of old, why he should embrace his talent, not his treasure and question what the future holds for the sport.
