- 0 comments

The much awaited welterweight title showdown is about to happen, Manny Pacquiao vs. Chris Algieri Live in Macau!



The championship match between Filipino superstar Manny Pacquiao (56-5-2, 38 KO) vs. Chris Algieri (20-0, 8 KO) will take place at the Cotai Arena in Macau, China on Saturday, November 22, 2014 at 9:00PM. (PST 0900H, Sunday, Nov.23)


GMA Network will telecast the "Pacquiao vs Algieri: Hungry for Glory" showdown via satellite starting at 11 a.m. today. The live blow-by-blow action will also be aired over Super Radyo DZBB 594, Barangay LS 97.1 and on all RGMA stations nationwide beginning at 10 a.m.


WATCH: Pacquiao vs. Algieri Weigh-In Results:




On the undercard, Zou Shiming (5-0, 1 KO) will face Kwanpichit OnesongchaiGym (27-0-2, 12 KO) in a 12-round flyweight bout; Vasyl Lomachenko (2-1, 1 KO) defends the WBO featherweight title against Chonlatarn Piriyapinyo (52-1, 33 KO); and Jessie Vargas (25-0, 9 KO) will put his WBA paper belt on the line against former lightweight titlist Antonio DeMarco (31-3-1, 23 KO) in a 12-round junior welterweight fight.


PREDICTIONS


According to boxingnews24 prediction, Manny Pacquiao will win a unanimous decision. While Algieri has the ingredients to annoy many fighters out there, you shouldn't expect him to win against Pacquiao. A knockout seems highly unlikely since Algieri will undoubtedly get on his bike and ride like it's Tour de France. This coupled with Algieri's rather low knockout percentage against largely unknown competition and what you get is a recipe for a decision, one way or the other. Pacquiao is no Provodnikov, and he will be moving his head much better while cutting angles so Algieri will have a harder time landing his punches and racking up points. For Algieri to win, it will have to happen based on what occurred outside the ring – the long hours of pounding pavement and sharpening of skills out of the spotlight of the ring and in the darkness of the gym. It's a long shot, and one I wouldn't put money on. But if you are an underdog, and you are looking for something to derive confidence from, know that Pacquiao's excessively large entourage (it took two planes to fill…so yeah, excessive) followed him to Macau, and this has concerned his trainer Freddie Roach. Let's not also forget the distraction of owning a basketball team in the Philippines and suddenly pulling a "Jackie Moon", to go and play for the very team that he owns.


Algieri's key wins were against Emmanuel Taylor, who was coming off 11 months of inactivity and Ruslan Provodnikov, a rising star, to be sure. Both men gave Algieri a still target. Some boxing personalities interviewed on the subject (Tim Bradley, for example) said that Pacquiao struggles with movement. Okay, I'll buy that. But what I have a hard time believing is how that isn't also a problem for Algieri. He needs his opponent to stand in front of him, even more than Pacquaio does. He won’t have any answers for the speed. He won't have any answers for the feints. And he won't have anything to throw Pacquaio hasn't seen before. Pacquiao wins.

BELIEVE IT OR NOT: Bicycle Faster Than a Ferrari F430 (Video)

- 0 comments

Believed it! This bicycle can run up to 207 mph (333km/hr) leaving a Ferrari F430.



French daredevil Francois Gissy did is absolutely insane. Gissy fastened a hydrogen peroxide-powered rocket with three thrusters to the frame of his bike, allowing him to go faster than many sports cars.


Gissy break the bicycle world record by riding at 207 mph.




Gissy hit that 207 mph mark in just 4.8 seconds, at the 300-meter mark of the run. This incredible speed was reached last November 7, 2014 at Circuit Paul Ricard which can be found at Le Castellet, South France.

Kiefer Ravena Eyeing to Become a Member of Gilas Pilipinas

- 0 comments

UAAP Season 77 Men’s Basketball Most Valuable Player Kiefer Ravena is eager to once again represent the country in the international basketball scene by joining Gilas Pilipinas.



“I want to try out and showcase that I am deserving to have a spot in Gilas Pilipinas,” he reveals in “Tapatan Ni Tunying” airing this Thursday (Nov 20).


Kiefer previously competed in the Southeast Asian Games as a member of the Sinag Pilipinas team that bagged championships in 2011 and 2013.


Despite the popularity he enjoys not just because of his basketball skills, but also of his good looks, Kiefer insists he will not pursue a career in show business.


“I laugh whenever I imagine myself acting or crying. That is really not for me,” says Kiefer.


Meanwhile, if Kiefer intends to land on the national basketball team, Gilas Pilipinas captain Jimmy Alapag opens up about retiring in the “Tapatan Ni Tunying” episode and shares his plans on the next chapter of his career.


“I know my career in basketball is about to end, but I’m just focused now on getting back to the Talk N Text team to try to help them win another championship. We’ll just wait and see,” bares Jimmy.


Jimmy, who is expecting his second child with wife LJ Moreno, says no prize is as satisfying as becoming a parent.


“Those awards don’t come close. It’s different. Championships are nice and they are something that you could be proud of, but being a parent is so much different. It makes you much happier,” Jimmy says.


When asked if he is ready to become a full-time dad, Jimmy answered, “Absolutely!”


Don’t miss “Tapatan Ni Tunying” this Thursday (Nov 20) at 4:30 PM on ABS-CBN’s Kapamilya Gold. For updates, follow the program’s social media accounts www.Twitter.com/TNTunying, www.Instagram.com/TNTunying, and www.facebook.com/TNTunying.
