CEBU CITY, Philippines –The Pacquiao-Ugas fight that happened today, August 22, provided temporary relief to people, who have been under quarantine as they stayed in their homes and spent their time with their families.

However, as to how the fight between Manny Pacquiao and Yordenis Ugas has ended, netizens have different reactions to it. Some netizens, who have watched the game, were satisfied with how the game went through and some did not.

On the matter of whether Pacquiao would need to resign from boxing, some said yes over his age which was already 42 and some said no provided that both had performed nearly equal earlier.

“Retire na lang kay tiguwang na, Alkansihun jud sya ato duwa-a kay taas pa si Ugas niya. Sakto ra kay to duwa-a. Di lang jud ka igo iyang mga punch,” a netizen said.

(He should just retire because he is now old. He is at a disadvantage in this fight because his opponent is taller than him. His fight plan was okay. His punches just could not hit the opponent.)

“In relation to boxing lang jud, dili pa siya need mo retire. Iyang performance ganina may not have been satisfactory para sa uban, but I’d blame it mostly on the length of time nga wala siya’y match,” another netizen also shared her opinion over Pacquiao’s recent fight.

(In relation to boxing, he should not retire yet. His performance earlier may not have been satisfactory to others, but I’d blame it mostly on the length of time that he had no match.)

Pacquiao has been off the ring for about two years already.

Yordenis Ugas retained his WBA world welterweight title via unanimous decision versus Manny Pacquiao today, August 22.

With the Pacquiao-Ugas fight today,  people were able to take a break from their worries and feeling of discomfort caused by the quarantine. Most importantly, watching the fight was a family bonding like it always has been with a Pacquiao fight.
