The only thing more fun than attending a boxing match in the Philippines is being in a boxing match in the Philippines.

Even though my match ended before it really got going, I had a blast and it was a great experience. A boxing event in the Philippines is really something to see in person.

The Philippines has a proud boxing history, its forefathers having started to throw jabs and straights even before 1900. The country is one, if not the most prolific producer of world-class fighters in Asia. The global ring's first glance at the Filipino fighting stance was through the legendary Pancho Villa, who did not disappoint. He raised his country's flag to become one of the first Asian boxing sensations. Filipino boxers have not stopped conquering the boxing world since. After decades of reaping titles, the country has now more than 40 boxing champions, and with a fresh core of talents like Boom Boom Bautista and AJ Banal, the future of the sport in the country looks even brighter and there is no one bigger in the sport than Manny Pacquiao.
