Horn’s Camp: Not ‘Robbery’ Win but No to Manila Boxing Rematch


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Only the camp of the new WBO Welterweight title holder, Jeff Horn and some Australians, of course, are convinced that it was not a “robbery” win for him as claimed by many boxing personalities. However, they already said no to a Manila rematch but the new champ is ready to defend his title anywhere but not in the Philippines.

[VIDEO]: Jeff Horn wins unanimously against Manny Pacquiao…HOW THE HELL??? Oh, and Stephen A. Smith does not agree with this at all.

Twitter Sentiments

Sports journalists, basketball stars players, fellow professional boxers and popular actors aired their sentiments via Twitter after the shocking decision that Horn won the fight. They are unanimous in declaring that Pacquiao got robbed in his opponent’s country, Australia.

Miracle Decision

Horn snatched the WBO welterweight title from Manny Pacquiao at the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, Australia. Horn won with scores of 117-111 and 115-113. Pacquiao said that there are many miracles that happened. Like the referees’ biased actions and the decision itself. However, he does not plan to make an appeal so as not to ruin the name of boxing. He is leaving that to the people.

Double Boxing Robbery

Sports writer Robert Flores of ESPN said the scores for the Pacquiao-Horn fight were “terrible.” “Manny is robbed twice,” he said. He refers to the earlier fight with Timothy Bradley as the first robbery. “Manny Pacquaio got robbed… Ridiculous,” the former American football tight end George Wrighster III also said.

Pacquiao is Clear Winner

Filipino fighter Brian Viloria admitted that the match was tight but disagreed with the unfavorable decision against Pacquiao. “Close fight, but Pacquiao won that fight,” Viloria said. “I love the sport. But sometimes it kicks you in the teeth when you least expect it,” he added. NBA player Karl-Anthony Towns of Minnesota Timberwolves and retired NBA star of Los Angeles Lakers player, Kobe Bryant, plus actor Samuel Jackson were all disappointed over the fight like many Filipinos.

How do we go about Crimes not related to Drugs?


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Incitement or resort to violence is the result of the President’s drug war. Crimes not related to drugs continue to happen in the Philippines. Little has been done about it. In fact, the PNP justifies that crime rate has gone done. Why is this not felt?

[VIDEO]: See the problems of society that include heinous crimes like rape and murder, robbery, arson and hostage dramas that are not caused by illegal drugs. Often due to poverty, anger mismanagement, mental illness and simply bad attitudes. How can these be prevented?

International Criminal Court

The International Criminal Court’s chief prosecutor, Fatou Bensouda will be closely following developments in the Philippines in the weeks to come and record any instance of incitement or resort to violence

Inciting to Killings

Bensouda also raised the alarm over earlier pronouncements of government leaders which she said seemed to condone killings and encourage State forces and civilians to target individuals “with lethal force.

President’s Defense on Crimes

President Rodrigo Duterte in his speeches is far too defensive in his drug war. His announcements and comments in public did not help solve drug-related crimes. Instead, they incite or condone (inspire) other crimes not related to drug abuse.

Robberies, Rape, Arson and Murder

Robberies, rape, arson, and murder are crimes committed by some individuals without the influence of drugs. Oftentimes, it’s crime of passion that root from mental instability, aggression, and anger mismanagement.

Mental Health Care

When the poorest of the poor are stressed out and don’t know what to do, where can they go? The people they knew would likely have the same problems. This is one government public service that must be enhanced the same as the drug war.

Ills of Society

Social problems cannot be dealt with by the president alone. Each citizen of the country has the responsibility to take care of another or contribute to the community. If resources are scarce, services will do. But government agencies must initiate these moves to get a wider coverage.
