Well we know number 4 is made up since Ali's fight in Manilla was in 1975 and Manny wasn't born till 1978.

He mentioned it in the radio a long time ago. "Napanood ko ang laban ni Ali..." "I saw Ali's fight..." I think he meant in the TV. Yup the top 5 is accurate.

:lol1: Busted.

But mate, everyone saw that fight. Everyone! The whole damn world saw it....Honestly though, who cares anyway? What the hell is this in boxing history for? Take it back out to NSB where it belongs.

No you're right. :bottle:I'm quite a dumb****. I don't know it was 1975. I thought it was 1990 when pacquiao is still selling donut, he use his Donut money to buy plane tickets to Manila and then he use his Donut money to buy tickets for the Ali fight.

:twak::dunce: yup i'm dumb.

This thing is obviously fake ... wondering why he mentionned Tyson? It's because of his generation or?

this is true, however manny said that Muhamed Ali became popular in the Phillipines after this fight!! so it probably was passed down from someone there.

I saw the fight as well............ on VHS. 20 years later lol!
