Not happy about the news that Manny Pacquiao will be fighting in September. That's still a long way. I am not used of seeing Pacquiao for only a fight this year. Usually, Pacquiao has two fights in a year until 2013 when his camp decided to rest him more after the disappointing two consecutive defeats last year, most notably of that Morales fight.
While the 2013 Philippine Election might have affected Pacquiao's preparation for another fight as he again is running for a seat in the government. Even his wife Jinkee Pacquiao is running?
Goodbye Manny for now. What about "The Hawaiian Punch" Bryan Viloria vs Juan Francisco Estrada this April 6? Aside from Pacquiao and Donaire, the third name to be considered currently in the Philippine households is Viloria. Though he is from Hawaii, he is a Filipino. Viloria will be in the spotlight as he fights Estrada in China. Yes, this is the best fight in April as many waits for the Mayweather vs Guerrero. Why wait when we can have this fight on Saturday.
WBA/WBO flyweight titleholder Viloria will have all the means to overwhelm Estrada. However, this is not a pushover fight in favor of Vilora because Estrada has the skills and flexibility to match the speed and power of the Hawaiian. Thus, it is a toss up match in my opinion.
How to watch Viloria vs Estrada in the Philippines? This is yet again a question to be ask like me who lives in the Philippines. I will update you about this question for I couldn't answer for now. But if you have a cable tv, just try checking on the Solar Sports. It might be also be on ABS-CBN or GMA.
What about the Viloria vs Juan Francisco Estrada fight time? Viloria vs Estrada will be broadcast on HBO2 Saturday April 6 2:00 PM ET.
