coverage: Pacquiao vs. Rios Fight As One Screening in Solaire Resort #FightForPinas @solaireresort

PB248455
November 24, 2013 is the fight day here in Asia for the Pacquiao vs. Rios Fight as One boxing match, and Its funny that I forgot that the fight will be in Macau and not in Las Vegas, But I’m glad that the schedule of the main fight is also the same sched of their previous Las Vegas boxing match. I got worried in the first place because I woke up late and went to Solaire Resorts for the live viewing of the match at around 9am, and I thought that the main fight will be around 9am or 10am, but its good that the main event occured at around 12nn.

Thanks to Solaire Resorts for inviting me to attend this and also do a blog coverage of the live viewing event. I invited my blogger buddies from our PB Network group, - Enzo of www.juanmanilaexpress.com, Raffy of www.pinoytravelblog.com, and Ian of www.theroguewriter.net, there’s also that PLDT Home sponsored live screening in BGC and I sent Eli of www.lifestyle.digitalspidey.com there to cover and use my slot.

I got pumped up for this match after seeing Pacquiao’s head coach receives a cheap kick in the chest by their former team mate who is now part of Rio’s camp, the incident occurred and was captured in video during the two boxers practice session in a gym in Macau.

let me share here my photo story of our awesome day in Solaire… btw.. Pacquiao won the match!

Here’s our view.
Solaire Resorts did a nice set up of the viewing, they placed a REAL boxing ring and on top is a hanging LED HD TV. Inside the Solaire Resorts Ballroom, we felt that we are there in Macau.
