Manny Pacquiao - Boxing Hero

Last Sunday, October 7, was the day our home grown boxing champion, Manny Pacquiao defeated Marco Antonio Barrera of Mexico.

Early in the day (that's Saturday night in Las Vegas) we were tuned in to the radio hoping to catch a live telecast of the event. Television coverage is usually way soooo delayed, you see. (Except for those watching expensive PPV offerings from large cinema houses)

My son fortunately found this web video streaming coverage live through CCTV5 which I think is a chinese cable channel. Although, the transmission left much to be desired, it was better than none at all or the radio.

To think that it was FREE made it all better. I love the Internet!

Cheers!
