The Legend of Danny Macquiao – The English Version


Observe: The individuals and/or conditions on this story are fictitious, any resemblance to any actual particular person and/or scenario is solely coincidental. Not one boxer landed in any hospital and never a single preventing cock obtained slaughtered as I wrote this text.

My story begins in a spot known as Colonel Santos…since our protagonist hails from that city. His was a life mired in poverty; he obtained fed up hawking ‘pan de sal‘ across the neighborhood that someday he determined to strive his luck in Manila.

It was his dream to be knowledgeable boxer, and who is aware of, it would convey him fame and fortune. And so it was in Manila that he turned professional and did I inform you that he packs a imply punch? He is a southpaw and his left is his bread and butter. When he lands a left straight on his opponent’s jaw, it is normally bye, bye birdie.

I first took discover of him in this system “Blow by blow” on nationwide tv and since of his preventing model, which was a bit uncooked on the time, he all the time gained, normally by knockout of course, that is why his followers multiplied. He quickly made a reputation for himself in America when he gained all his bouts there; his identify slowly turned a family phrase amongst Filipino-People. However the bout that basically made him an in a single day sensation was the one with the good champion Barko Antonio Marera…and this made him quite a bit of cash.

However, now here is the massive but–our hero has this annoying behavior of signing contracts right here and there which kind of makes him look silly. By the way in which, Danny Macquiao has a coronary heart of gold, you see, each time he celebrates his birthday, he all the time finds the time to distribute groceries to the poor people in his metropolis.

He’d additionally helped many of his neighbors by using them as caretakers in his cock farm. He had taken a flowery to cockfighting and he quickly discovered himself collaborating in derbies. As a result of he was turning into common, politicians quickly gravitated in direction of him, some of which, hoped to deodorize their foul reputations by being seen with him and hopefully emerge smelling like roses.

Perhaps he spent an excessive amount of time with them politicians, perhaps they made a proposal he couldn’t refuse, I do not know…however he quickly made the announcement that he was going to run for congress. However in case you ask me, no, I do not need him engaged in politics as a result of this sport is simply too soiled.

In boxing, it is very straightforward to find out who your opponent is, he is all the time there standing proper in entrance. Whereas in politics…what can I say, it is approach too soiled?

quickly it appeared like nobody may speak him out of it; his mom couldn’t even persuade him to cease entertaining ideas of working as their district’s consultant in Congress. So how may I even dare to strive?

Rumor has it that his mom as soon as threatened, “Son, in case you enter politics, I will go away…and by no means come again.” Now I do not know whether or not that is true or not, however it’s mentioned that he replied, “It is okay nanay, please go away they keys of the brand new automobile I purchased for you on the desk earlier than you permit…”

His mom made an about face proper there after which, and she or he by no means made one other menace after that…no sense rocking the boat, you see.

When he gained the election(Sure, he gained, so this goes to show that this story is on no account about anyone you and I each know) his household quickly talked amongst themselves that he ought to discover anyone new, anyone who’s a entrance sitter, anyone who should be up there within the prime ten within the Bar exams. In different phrases, they wish to be certain he will not be signing contracts right here and there anytime quickly and not using a sound recommendation from some prime notch lawyer.

Apparently, they thought it is higher to be protected than sorry, you see, many political figures had discovered themselves in sizzling water currently as a result of they authorized authorities initiatives with out going via a public bidding.

A 12 months or two in the past, one may see people ready in an extended line and getting groceries from Danny Macquiao on his birthday. Now, they do it every day; good factor Danny has a boxful of Alazam tablets, you see he will get a headache from seeing these infernal traces each day, too.

Properly, serves him proper; if he solely adopted his mom’s recommendation.
