Who’s afraid of KIA Sorento? »

Sorry to say this but, as things stand, Manny Pacquiao, the dedicated cager, honestly can’t hope to land even a tryout slot with the New York Knicks scrub team in the NBA. Remember how promoter Bob Arum quipped that Pacquiao, preparing for his world welterweight title defense in Macau next month, could go seek a slot with the Knicks—but only after he’s done with his next big bout. Arum was, indeed, kidding.…

Pacquiao hosting rich National Open billiards »

MANILA, Philippines — After boxing and basketball, billiards is Manny Pacquiao’s other passion. Fact is, the eight-division world champion is hosting the $150,000 (about P6.7 million) Philippine Open 10-Ball Championship slated Dec. 8 to 16 at SM City in General Santos City.

MANILA, Philippines—If there's anyone who knows Manny Pacquiao well, it's his younger brother Bobby Pacquiao. And Bobby, a former featherweight and lightweight contender before hanging up his gloves, knows the Fighter of the Decade is in laser-light focus for his upcoming bout against unbeaten Chris Algieri next month. "Nasa sarili na niya ’yon. Magaling si Manny mag-adjust (It's in him. Manny's good in managing his time)," said the 33-year-old Bobby, whom Manny…

GENERAL SANTOS CITY —The man leaned on the railing of JMP Arcade’s front pillar here one humid evening recently. Like the superstar fighter’s fans, street hawkers and security personnel, he was patiently waiting for Manny Pacquiao. Now 57, Rolando Navarette remains muscle-bound, his black hair still thick and curly. He was clad in a dark green T-shirt and khaki cargo shorts. Unlike the others huddled near the main entrance, though, he preferred to…

SACRAMENTO, California—Manny Pacquiao scored a knockout of sorts while his once heir-apparent Nonito Donaire Jr. suffered a powerful one Sunday. Pacquiao made a safe debut in the Philippine Basketball Association, entertaining an opening-day crowd of close to 53,000 by starting and playing for less than seven minutes. He led his KIA Sorentos to an 80-66 win over Blackwater Elite by primarily staying on the bench. Heeding the desire of his trainer Freddie Roach,…
