Pound for pound titans Manny Pacquiao (55-5-2, 38 KOs) and Timothy Bradley, Jr. (31-0, 12 KOs) will go mano a mano in their eagerly-anticipated WBO welterweight championship rematch in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday night (Sunday morning, Manila Time).

When Pacquiao and Bradley rumbled the first time, on June 9, 2012 at MGM Grand, Bradley's hand was raised via a controversial split decision, ending Pacquiao's welterweight title reign as well as his seven-year, 15-bout winning streak.  Though both fighters claimed victory neither was satisfied.  Destiny may have played a hand in their first battle but it will be survival of the fittest that determines the winner of this exciting rematch.

Pacquiao, the lone congressional representative from the Sarangani province in the Philippines, is the only fighter to win eight world titles in as many different wei…

The Pinoy teen started skating in 2005 after discovering the sport in a shopping mall ice rink. He began competing in 2008 and has since collected over 100 medals and trophies. He won his first senior international title at the Crystal Skate of Romania last year.

A home-grown talent, Martinez received early this year P1 million from SM Ice Skating to help him achieve his Olympic dream.

"A graduate of the Chelsea academy, the English-born Younghusband moved abroad and continued to bang in the goals for the Philippines," Mail Online wrote.

Poul Nielsen has the best goalscoring record in history, netting 52 goals in 38 games.

Other names included in the list are Sven Rydell (#2), Gerd Muller (#3), Ferenc Pukas (#4), Kunishige Kamamoto (#5), Pele (#6), Luigi Riva (#7), Chan Siu Ki (#8), Ali Daei (#9), Jorgen Juve (#10), Godfrey Chitalu (#11), Gabriel Batistuta (#12), Davur Suker (#14), Didier Droba (#15), Wlodzimierz Lubanski (#16), Rashidi Yekini (#17), Damian Mori (#18), Dimitar Berbatov (#19), and Stern John (#20).

Peyton Manning Hoax Claims Athlete Broke Both Legs In Car Accident

Peyton Manning broke hit two legs in a car accident, according to a hoax that circulated in social media sites over the weekend.

"A spokesperson for the Denver highway safety authority (HSA) has confirmed that Peyton Manning has broken both of his legs in a traffic altercation," states the false report. "He has been transported via ambulance to a local Denver hospital for treatment, and the full extent of his injuries are not known at this time, however, both of his legs were visibly broken and not life threatening according to sources."

Peyton Manning didn't break his legs because he was never in a car accident. The Denver Broncos quarterback is well.

The rumor originated from Global Associated News, which is a "celebrity hoax generator" website. All the news in the said website are fabricated and are not true.

Global Associated News had caused commotions in the past when it featured hoax reports of popular celebrities such as Justin Bieber, 50 Ce…

Michael Jordan Coming To The Philippines?

Michael Jordan is set to visit the Philippines this year, according to a rumor that circulated on social media sites on Wednesday.

The rumor claims Gatorade Philippines will sponsor the legendary basketball icon's tour in the country.

Sadly though, the rumor is not true. Gatorade Philippines has released a statement on Facebook, saying, "We currently have no plans to bring in Michael Jordan to the country, but we’d love to have him visit in the future!"

The rumor about Jordan's supposed Philippine visit came a day after it was announced that NBA superstar Kobe Bryant is going back to Manila in August for his Lenovo Philippines endorsement.

Aside from Bryant, more NBA stars are set to fly to the basketball-crazy Philippines this year, including LeBron James, James Harden, Eric Gordon, and the team members of Houston Rockets and Indiana Pacers.

LeBron James is set to visit Manila, Philippines on July 23, 2013.

The NBA superstar will be attending an event organized by Nike Philippines. The event, which venue has not been announced, is part of Nike's "Leave a Message" campaign which aims to inspire  Filipino hopefuls to strive for greatness just like the two-time NBA champion.

Tickets to the event are for free and will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis at Nike Park in Bonifacio Global City starting Wednesday, July 17, at 12:00 noon. Only two tickets will be given to each individual.

Also scheduled to fly to the Philippines this month are Houston Rocket star James Harden and New Orleans Pelican Eric Gordon, who will be gracing the NBA 3X Philippines 2013 on July 26 to 28 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena.

More NBA stars will be heading to the country in October for the NBA pre-season game between the Houston Rockets and Indiana Pacers. Read more details here: http://noypistuff.blogspot.com/2013/03/nba…
