Few days from now we will all be witnessing the most awaited, the most talked about, the most exciting boxing match the whole world has been itching to watch (especially us Filipinos). Whether you are a boxing fanatics or not, as long as you are a Filipino, I’m sure you know Manny Pacquiao. And this coming fight against Mayweather will be the greatest milestone our “Pambansang Kamao” will add to his phenomenal boxing career. A historical fight that will happen on May 3, 2015 8AM (Philippine time).
In my point of view, this event will be sealed in history books, and I want to be part of that. I want to be part in a way that I want to watch the boxing match live. But since I can’t afford going to MGM Grand, Las Vegas and buy those expensive tickets, the next best way to be part of it is to watch via pay-per-view at the comfort of my house.
Honestly, this will be my first time to subscribe via pay-per-view. The last time I paid to watch for a Pacquiao match was against Oscar Dela Hoya via SM Cinema (and I never regret watching it live especially with a match outcome like that… it’s pricelss!). I watched his other fights through free TV with overwhelming commercial breaks and it’s a pain to watch especially when people around you keep on spoiling the result. I also tried watching Pacquiao matches via the internet with those sites providing free live streaming. Some are legit but most of them are pure scams who just want to gain traffic on their websites. Overall experience with those free live streaming sites are not so good.
So for this Pacquiao-Mayweather fight, never mind the pay-per-view fee. I will watch this match live and I will be part of this history. This time it’s my time to spoil the result to those who doesn’t know the outcome yet (just kidding!). How about you? What’s your plan on that historical day?
