Six days from now, on November 14, Filipinos and boxing fans all over the world will be glued to their TV sets and big screens to watch Philippines’ Pride, Manny Pacquaio, battle Antonio Margarito for the World Super Welterweight Championship title. Like all Filipinos, I am crossing my fingers that Pacquiao will once again bring pride to our ountry and pummel Margarito to defeat with his iron fists.
But more than the match, I am looking forward to spending the time with my family. You see, boxing matches are like family reunions for us. We usually gather in my mom’s house and wait for the match to end. That usually happens around lunch time so my mom makes sure she has enough food to feed her battalion of kids and grandchildren.
But we are doing it a little different this year. We will be watching this historic boxing event at my brother’s house. He recently bought a 32-inch Sony Bravia TV which he would connect to their desktop. Since he is subscribed to PLDT MyDSL’s 1299 plan, he already reserved his privilege to watch Pacquaio’s match on PLDT Watchpad. If you are on a similar plan as my brother, then you can register for PLDT Watchpad and reserve your slot to watch Pacquiao’s legacy-defining fight at this link: http://www.pldtwatchpad.com/PacmanMargaritoFight.html
For those who are subscribers to Plan 990, you need to upgrade to the plan 1299 . This will give you the necessary Internet connection speed of at least 768 kbps to watch the live streaming of the Pacuqiao-Margarito match. For more updates, you can “like” PLDT WatchPad on Facebook
