Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao who is currently regarded as the best boxer in the world has accepted the call of the Catholic Church for him to be the Church’s Goodwill Ambassador. Because of this, he already sold his shares in the casino and nightclub in Manila because according to him, he will not engage in gambling business and any vices anymore.
But what about his roosters for cock-fighting? He also said that he will no longer participate in the cock-fighting betting. But he did not say that he already sold his roosters and his fighting-cocks breeding farm. And if he will abandon his farm, people who found their living attending his roosters will be affected with this changes.
By the way, I found a report that his 1,000 roosters which are worth $700,000 are already given to a friend. It was not mentioned who this friend is but I guess its the Governor, Chavit Singson, Pacquiao’s best friend. It was not mentioned too that his employees in the rooster farm are given to his friends too.
Talking about Chavit Singson, he is always seen in every fights of Manny Pacquiao. He even shared with Manny Pacquiao in a presidential table in every important occasions. But Chavit is not Pacquiao’s promoters. He’s not even a fund raiser of Manny. Chavit is simply a gambler betting on Pacquiao.
Betting in boxing is jut normal. It was not reported on the news but many think that Manny Pacquiao is one of those bettors in the boxing world. He bets not only his crown or the world boxing titles but also money. That’s what many think why Pacquiao is more richer compared to when he would just receive his purse.
Now, since Manny Pacquiao is quitting as a gambler for the sake of his salvation, then he needs to quit boxing too. While he is still in boxing, he will always be tempted to bet for himself, is always a gambler.
