Pacquiao vs Marquez

Today, Philippine pride and Congressman, Manny Pacquiao goes back in the ring to fight Juan Manuel Marquez. Crime rates will be low, and there will be very few vehicles on the road. Malls will have low traffic until after lunch time.
Betting stations would probably be full though.
No doubt, Manny is the favorite to win in this round but win or lose, he is sure to bring home a hefty sum. So I guess, more than winning big money, bringing home even more pride to the Philippines is a big motivator for the Pacman.
For those who are veterans in sports betting, this fight is a no-brainer. For other fights though, as in other sports, it would be better to get yourself familiar first with sports gambling terms before placing any bets.
Colleagues from work will be watching the fight at the EDSA Shangri-la, and they get to enjoy the buffet too. One of my TLs one a ticket to this treat but couldn’t go. She offered me her ticket and I’d have taken it if only for the buffet, but my back is hurting more than it has in the past two weeks. Sad smile Alfred and I might have to go to a hospital when he gets off work.
How are you spending fight night/day?
