It cost me $49.99. It ended 2:59 into the second round. It was worth every penny.
Watching Manny Pacquiao, right now, aged 30, with it all clicking, is like watching Michael Jordan go for 41 a game in the Finals against the Suns in 1993. It's like watching Babe Ruth club 60 homers in 1927, more than any other single team hit that season. It's like watching Tiger Woods win the 2001 Masters, completing the "Tiger Slam."
We get to see a historically significant boxer, athlete, and A-list entertainer, during a period when few will ever match his prowess -- his natural ability meeting halfway with his learned skills, a simultaneous happening of physical superiority peaking and years of practice and fine-tuning culminating.
A great star at his greatest.
