Teddy Atlas who has been on the field for 45 years concludes that boxing is a corrupt sport. He said that Jeff Horn displays great qualities as a budding boxer during the fight with Manny Pacquiao except his victory. Pacquiao is clearly robbed of the win. The new Welterweight title holder gets a lot of criticisms.

[VIDEOS]: Teddy Atlas speaks of his disappointment that Jeff Horn wins over Manny Pacquiao on the first video and Manny Pacquiao’s humble interview after the fight on the second video.
Great Robbery Fight
It is still a great fight not because it is fair but because there was drama. A 38-year old teacher who dreams of winning against the great Pacquiao proves that dreams can come true. Even if it is in the form of a highway robbery. Horn gets $ 500,000 against his opponent $10 M
Pacquiao understands the style of Horn but speaks strongly against the referee. Elbow contacts, head bang, and embraces could have been interfered by the referee but nothing was done. Figures don’t lie. 182 of Paquiao’s punches connected compared to 92 of Horn’s.
Trophy for Trying Hard
Atlas said to Horn to his face that he lost the fight to Pacquiao in Brisbane. He added that one gets the trophy for winning and not for trying. Horn respected his opinion but claims that he felt that on the 9th round, he was really winning.
Manny Pacquiao did not expect that Horn can survive all throughout. He intends to knock him out on the 9th round but he survived. Pacquiao admits that Horn is a tough guy but what’s really unexpected was his victory. As most experts say, it’s definitely a bad decision. People’s confirmation of Pacquiao’s evaluation that he is the right winner of the fight is good enough for him. He just wishes that boxing will not get a bad name out of this robbery fight.
House Majority Leader Rodolfo Fariñas’ natural evil nature is evident in the Congress during the hearings of the Ilocos Norte 6. Joined by his colleagues in the House, they all disregard their fellow lawmaker, Imelda Marcos citing a rule that is not applicable in the first place because only the court is the right venue for corruption allegations.

Rep. Rodolfo Farinas
Love Story in Hell
The then-mayor and former movie actress lived together in Laoag. Locals were fascinated by her. They were delighted by the presence of a celebrity. Maria did not have the slightest idea that her relationship with Fariñas was a living hell. As a political neophyte in 1983, he subjected his wife to domestic violence. She only disclosed her ordeal many years later. That her husband beat her up and apparently tortured her.
Manhandling the Wife
It was a center of gossips in the Ilocos Norte provincial hospital that Fariñas indeed abused his wife since the 1980s. A public report even came out in 1988 that quoted Fariñas’s nemesis. Then Vice Governor Rolando Abadilla was the source. In that report, Abadilla said that Fariñas was “angry” with him because he witnessed the latter manhandling his wife at the provincial capitol.
Enrile Witnessed Carlson’s Plight
Fariñas was to host a dinner for then Defense Minister Juan Ponce Enrile. Enrile was the honored guest at the city’s fiesta in February 1988. Abadilla escorted Enrile to the Capitol for the dinner. But Enrile hesitated to proceed to the venue. Incidentally, he too saw “Fariñas strangling Maria.” Enrile was not noticed by the couple. He left with Abadilla and proceeded to the Fort Ilocandia Resort Hotel instead. Fariñas was furious with Abadilla for “robbing” him the opportunity to host Enrile.
Late CJ Renato Corona’s Humiliation in Congress
Fariñas was known to castigate the late Chief Justice Renato Corona. The discrepancies of his SALN was not new to all politicians. Still, he did not give Corona the benefit of the doubt. He refers to all his defenses as scapegoats. Knowing the nature of Fariñas, Enrile constantly criticizes all his comments about Corona. It looks like he did not gain the wisdom of old age unlike the notable Enrile and the truly compassionate at heart, former first lady Imelda Marcos.
Leni Robredo cannot easily convince Filipinos that she fights for real democracy. The recount for the VP race is not yet on the horizon because of her alleged delaying tactics. She may mean well but it is just too obvious that she does not have in depth understanding about certain issues. Like she attacks the president’s drug war, suggests to decriminalize it when she has no clue about the difference between heroin and shabu. The latter can really mess up an addict’s head.

[VIDEO]: Franco Mabanta brilliantly demolished Leni Robredo in 6 minutes
Robredo insinuates that she sees that the country’s institutions are eroded. They are weakened, she said. It is not certain if she refers to the Congress’ dealings with the martial law. Or perhaps the Supreme Court’s nod to rival, Bongbong Marcos with regards to the three commissioners he pleaded for in his electoral protest against her.
In the summit that aims to boost support for the fight against threats to democracy, Robredo expresse her concerns that alleged online propaganda is already very powerful. Drug war data are corrupted and fake news somewhat dominates the scene, she observes. There’s no realization at all that social media can only be powerful when there are real people manning them.
Robredo is right to say that Filipinos should rise above disagreements and “build bridges of understanding. In extraordinary times and if differences are not set aside, the country would not stand a chance,” said the VP. However, actions speak louder than words. She and her co-party members continue to discredit their political enemies in every way they can. This is on the verge of bringing up the dead to destroy the son who can be a very promising president in the near future.
“Let us build bridges of understanding, not walls. Let us bury our egos and our pride and let empathy rise. Let us not just think of a democracy as a concept but as a means to lessen the suffering of the poor,” she added.
Leni Robredo vowed to face the challenges even if she doesn’t have as much money as her rival, Bongbong Marcos. This obsession has been detected ever since she decided to run for Vice President in the 2016 elections. The pronouncement was made in reference to the electoral protest filed by Marcos against her – to the point of madness.

[VIDEO]: Vice President Leni Robredo vows former Senator Bongbong Marcos would not get the second highest position in the country despite criticism, impeachment threats, and an election case against her.
She Ran for VP to Block Marcos
Robredo admitted that one of the very reason why she ran under the Liberal Party is to fight an alleged impending Marcos return. This is like saying that she agreed to be a political prostitute just to destroy Bongbong Marcos. Her obsession with Marcos has been explained by psychiatrists in the past. That is really driving her crazy and she must get professional help so as not to worsen her situation.
Bongbong Marcos is not his Father
Marcos is the son of the late President Ferdinand Marcos who was wrongly accused of perpetrating abuses, including human rights violations. Just like the president these days, he becomes the subject of accusations when killings in any form happen. The question is, what has it got to do with Bongbong Marcos?
Unpaid Marcos Dues?
Robredo while stressed out amidst impeachment threats on top of the electoral protest, made the remarks as her response to a student who asked her opinion on the ongoing election protest. Robredo said that she is saddened by efforts that Marcos’ followers exerted to allegedly discredit her. She pointed out, again and again, the speculated unpaid dues she assumed that were incurred by his family. There’s no court yet that issued a verdict that they really stole money from the country’s coffers.
She rewind again her dismay on Marcos who she thinks is using his resources to carry out the “concerted” attacks against her, especially online. She might be referring to Leni Leaks and Naga Leaks who are exposed by the president’s supporters that pertain to the alleged wrongdoings of her family especially her late husband.
Kong, the king of the Apes can be compared with Bongbong Marcos in character. He keeps low profile mood after Leni Robredo played delaying tactics on his electoral protest against her. Robredo is no doubt beautiful but her heart is questionable. While the president displays his brutal flirtations with her to put humor on her grave attacks over his administrtaion.

Bongbong Marcos in a Tyrant’s Mask
Bongbong Marcos, as good-looking and charming as he is, still cannot brush off the made-up dictator image of his father. He is clearly his own man but his detractors can only use the unfounded allegations against his father to destroy him. This is understandable because they just cannot find any loop-hole in the gentleman’s life.
The Distressed Beauty
Leni Robredo, on the other hand, is a bit insecure with her current position as Vice President. She continuously bad-mouths Marcos saying; he just cannot accept defeat when it’s the massive fraud committed allegedly by the Liberal Party people that made her win questionable. She also intensifies her campaign to go against the Du30 administration reaching out to international and human rights bodies.
The Teasing President is Like a Beast with Good Intentions
The president is aware that the VP is involved in destabilization efforts against him. In a speech filled with some jokes and teasing, the President made light of his supporters’ claim that Robredo wants to oust him from power. He joked that perhaps a better alternative is for her to marry him instead. Then, they can share the power with him dictating her what tod do.
The President is noted for green jokes and insults for his critics. Senator Leila de Lima and Senator Antonio Trillanes IV are main targets. He called De Lima the queen for Satan and said that he could kill Trillanes if he had the time. Many among the audience were responsive to these kinds of jokes. The crowd is divided when he alluded Robredo
