IN this week’s edition of Boxing News Nigel Collins writes about following the Manny Pacquiao phenomenon:
AT his very best, Manny Pacquiao fought like a comic book superhero come to life. There was a swirl of action almost faster than the eye could see, as he swooped in, unleashed a series of leather-encased lightning-bolts and spun away before your brain could catch up with your senses.
It was intoxicating stuff, a fighter who laughed and waved as he jogged to the ring and then turned into a stone-cold assassin until his job was done. Then he reverted to the humble, fun-loving Pinoy as seamlessly as Superman became Clark Kent.
