Manny Pacquiao vs Brandon Rios in Macau

This is one of the most exciting event this year after Yolanda tragedy. Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao dedicated this fight for his fellow Filipinos and victims of the said killer typhoon. Few days ago, I saw a 'news confrontation' of the boxers' coaches, and tension rises...

According to Freddie Roach, Manny trained so well and his intensity to fight is really high. I've read that this is his first major international fight to be held in Macau (Sand's Venetian) which is one of the most famous gambling destination in Asia.

Since the venue is very near in the Philippines, I guess many celebrities and personalities are now in Macau to watch this exciting Pacman bout even former England soccer star David Beckman (saw it in the news yesterday) is present to support Manny!

Out of topic but speaking of Venetian, Macau

I visited this place around 2009 when me and my fan girlfriends were in Hong Kong and stayed overnight in Macau. We went to different attractions in Macau and this one of our favorite destination - The Venetian Macau.

The Venetian Macao is a luxury hotel and casino resort in Macau owned by the Las Vegas Sands. The Venetian is a 40-story, $2.4 billion anchor for the seven hotels on the Cotai Strip in Macau. (Wikipedia)
