As Manny Pacquiao, the new brown hope of boxing (if we are to hear out the hyperbole oozing from the lips of oleaginous US boxing promoter Murad Muhammad in Manila last week), flew out to Los Angeles to start getting serious about his upcoming world championship bout in Las Vegas, all the talk was of the mega-bucks (peso-denominated, that is) that awaited him at the end of the pugilistic rainbow.
 

But according to the breathless whisperings in informed cafe society, Pacquiao allegedly collected what could well shape up to be the biggest paycheck of his life just a day or two before boarding an LA flight when he taped a TV political ad endorsing the presidential candidate of the political party whose campaign treasure trove is handled by Croesus -- as opposed to the opposing lot who are cursed to have Scrooge handling their campaign finances.


Though we don’t believe even a king’s ransom, however handy, will really compensate Pacquiao for the devastating experience of his trusted and shrewd manager Rod Nazario, who has guided his career with consummate skill. To recall, Nazario’s wife, San­ diganbayan Presiding Justice Minita Chico Nazario, was appointed to the Supreme Court a few weeks ago only to see the appointment paper plucked away from under her eyes even as she was on the way to Padre Faure and her appointment with destiny.


Meanwhile, Pacquiao’s camp should be wary of the oily machinations of Muhammad when it comes to the Filipino champ because his language both verbally and bodily, sometimes makes that self-confessed boxing huckster Don King appear like a choir boy.


When a guy goes around town saying that Pacquiao is “the greatest boxer that came along since Muhammad Ali,” you instantly know where he’s coming from -- but more importantly where he is panting to head for (the nearest bank, that’s where).


This guy Muhammad -- at least on his Manila showing last week -- appears too smooth for comfort. And now that he seems to have managed to get both feet inside the Pacquiao camp we bet that it will be he who will end up with the big bucks in Las Vegas -- and dollar-denominated to boot.
