Filipinos can watch the match live wherever they are in the world.

With the International Superfeatherweight Championship Boxing Council on the line, expectations are even higher for the precedent-setting Pacquiao-Larios bout than the Pacquiao-Morales fight. The latter shattered television ratings as it garnered the highest viewers in Philippine TV history.

Of course Manny wants to give pride to his country once again. He will be facing probably the toughest boxer in history. Oscar Chololo Larios even toppled boxing greats Wayne McCullough and Israel Vasquez. The Pacman will be training once more in the US at the Wild Card Gym which his coach Freddie Roach owns in Los Angeles, California. Manny will be undergoing the same training he went through for his match with Eric Morales. He will be leaving on May 13 and will return to the country on June 14. “Hindi po ako nagsasalita ng tapos, gagawin ko po lahat ng aking makakaya para maibigay ulit ang karangalan sa ating bayan. It was Manny’s humble message to his kababayans.

Larios promises to show off his superb fighting skills by delivering punches like a machine gun. His manager described him as a tough fighter with nothing to lose and everything to gain. When asked how sure he is that he can survive 12 rounds with the Pacman in the ring the Mexican fighter said that all he knows is that he has confidence in himself. I can’t tell you exactly myself but I am going to win. I want to thank Manny for giving me this opportunity. I am not sure but I am going to try.

Mano A Mano is a boxing event fought by a Filipino, promoted by Filipinos and broadcast by Filipinos. To pull off this major project is a distinct honor for all Filipinos. From all perspectives, Mano A Mano is the fight for all Filipinos.
