I am a government executive in the Philippines who served in the Airlines (PAL), Agricultural Finance (DA), and Construction and Development Industries (BCDA MHI). I was into sports early in life and I use to be part of my school's varsity swimming team and played and couched basketball a lot. I studied Karate and Judo in my High School days and I am presently gaga about badminton. Since playing basketball is not anymore advisable at my age, I turned to badminton in which sport I am part of the Men's Doubles Team that is the defending champion in our office intrams. I used to go hunting wild chickens and the like and goes to the shooting range with my 1911 A1 and 9mm pistols. I have a nice airgun that shoots straight and could hit the provervial dime at 50 meters (with a good scope of course). I have my personal gym at Diego Silang where I keep my body fit and I love to read history and sports. And just like the rest of my countrymen, I am proud and crazy of Pacman.
I noticed that you responded to a comment I left on someone's article.
I feel the need to address you personally as I know you have supported my articles in the past.
Firstly, let me say that my comments were not as a result of any bias towards the Mayweather camp nor were they as a result of any ill-feeling towards Manny Pacquiao.
The fact of the matter is that during the period from Dec 17th to December 29th 95% of articles written in B/R boxing section were either regarding Pacquiao or regurgitated topics relating to the Mayweather/Pacquiao debacle.
I was extremely disillusioned with what B/R had become. Many writers had written solely about Manny Pacquiao and had given me no reason to think they would dissuade from such a theme.
My love lies with the sport not with one boxer- fighters come and go. Sure some are special and deserve more column space than others-but no one fighter is bigger than the sport.
You see if writers invest all of their time in one man, not only do they become one-dimensional, when then man vacates the sport there is a sudden void not only for the writer but his fans that he has accumulated aswell.
You say that you love the sport 'far more than I can imagine' well when all of your articles are based around one man thats all that I can do-Imagine. The only way to evidence such knowledge is to contribute through your musings.
The author of the piece in which you made the comment-Lorne Scoggins-and I have since come to a mutual understanding. I by no means degraded his quality of content- In fact its of a high standard, what Lorne needs to do and he appreciates this is display more variety.
I hope that has clarified my feelings for you and I look forward to reading your future pieces and hope you will continue to offer me your readership

Check my new article- it may be on the horizon but it should be shelved.
Just wrote a new article. My first boxing interview really. Hope you guys can check it out.
Consider this: Where's Pac if Cotto never loses?
Take a read and give it some thought...
As you may have noticed, I have not been able to contribute as much to the B/R Boxing community as I have started my own boxing blog. I will try to drop a line or two but my entire focus will now shift to my chosen career path.
Please do visit my blog, http://boxerscamp.blogspot.com/, subscribe and leave your thoughts and comments. I really enjoyed my run here at B/R and will always be forever grateful to the people I have met and became online buddies with because we all share the same passion for the same sport.
Until the next hurrah.
My legendary interview!
Kabayan, I got your message regarding the typo. Don't worry about it. I do it all the time when typing a long text.
If u need to write something very personal, you may use my email posted in my profile here at B/R. In a few days, I will erase that information. But if u prefer to continue using this board to communicate with me, so be it. It's perfectly fine with me.
Have a wonderful chess game today!
