I created this news article since the World with bated breath awaits this $ 100 million fight. The landmark fight will be viewed here in the Philippines on December 7, Sunday, at 8 a.m.--Florentino Floro (talk) 14:32, 6 December 2008 (UTC)

I agree that this should just be merged[edit]

Since I am new here, and note further that there are just 2 articles here on Pacquiao, with very few sports articles on boxing, what I did, was to follow the precedent set:

I thought that before a great boxing event is reported, the pre-weig-in plus the media press conference must be reported too. I further note that the creators of these 2 articles were not registered users, but that doesn't matter.

Since not only Filipinos but the entire boxing world had awaited this biggest event, maybe, in boxing history, even, non-title bout, I happened to have witnessed the last moments of this fight live via radio here in the Philippines. Forthwith, not more than a minute, though, I created the news article, (since news must be reported fresh) and I am happy to be the first to share this Wiki news with the world. (Not because I am a Filipino, but as Wiki reported; in fact, I do not like boxing, since my heart is in horse racing since 1972, but I do not like to venture into this news, it is tough for me).
IN FINE, since the second article overshadowed my created first article, then, the second literally obliterates my previous article. Hence, if not proper for deletion, it should be, as I opine, merged with prompt attention, in view of the current landmark nature of the Paquiao thing. NOTE further that the gross sales stands about or more than $ 100 million dollars. And the total prize will be 60-40%: Pacman gets not less than $ 20 while De la Hoya shares not less than $ 40 million roughly, including the pay-per-view.--Florentino Floro (talk) 04:17, 8 December 2008 (UTC)
