Manny Pacquiao Has No Plans Of Retiring From Boxing

LAS VEGAS, Nevada (The Adobo Chronicles, Las Vegas Bureau) – Filipino Senator and champion boxer Manny Pacquiao beat Keith Thurman today to become the oldest welterweight champion in boxing history.

So is it time for Pac Man to retire from this violent sport?

Not if you ask him. And we did.

In an exclusive interview with The Adobo Chronicles, Pacquiao , 40, said that while his elective post as Philippine Senator comes with a term limit, his being a professional boxer doesn’t.  So he plans to keep fighting in the ring for as long as he has challengers.

We sought the help of FaceApp to provide us a photo of Pacquiao 20 or 25 years down the road, and the people behind the photo app obliged.

MMDA To Charge Toll Fee To Cross the EDSA Kamuning Footbridge

QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manil Bureau) – Victoria Sports Tower, located next to GMA Channel 7 on EDSA in Kamuning, is reportedly the largest indoor sports complex in the world. One can only imagine what it would cost to become a club member.

Well, leave it to the smart officials of the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) to come up with a much cheaper alternative to a daily workout for just P5 a day!

Today, MMDA announced it will begin charging a “toll’ fee or P5 each time someone crosses the  “footbridge to heaven.”

The footbridge, located just next to Victoria Sports, has been criticized for being too steep, especially for seniors and people with disabilities.

But the MMDA thought of a brilliant scheme for the “toll” which would be a thousand times cheaper than becoming a member of Victoria’s gym. Not to mention being a more effective way to lose weight and tone muscles.

So what are you waiting for?   The choice is yours: P5 each each way, or thousands of pesos for gym access?

 

NBA Champion Warriors Visit The President of the United States

WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles, (Washington Bureau) – It has become tradition that whenever a sports national league champion team visits the nation’s capital, it gets invited to meet with the President of the United States.

But in 2017, Donald Trump rescinded the invitation for NBA Champion Warriors to visit The White House  in the midst of the President’s comments about black NFL players kneeling during the National Anthem. Since then, the three-time champions were off limits on Pennsylvania Avenue.

This year, however, the Warriors visited with the President of the United States during their trip to D.C.

The 44th President, that is.
