No can do dat. By nature, human are sexual animals, and the main purpose of food and nutrition is to prepare them for procreation. Make 'em look yummy and giving 'em staying power to do yummy-yummy with a dashing six-to-12 pack tummy. Okay, OKAY! Holla at this quickie fix: a couple of scoops of ube (purple yam) Filipino ice cream, a couple of tablespoons of maca powder, a couple of piece of 2x3-inch ginger, a few almonds and walnuts, some lemon and kalamansi seeds and blend everything at a high speed for a minute in 10-to-16 ounces of coconut water of lemon juice in it. And then sip away the whole drink within five minutes a couple of hours between meals. And don't blame me when a thing between your navel and thighs start increasing in hardness and length and width. And get you on da go go to you know. And it could be better than a boksing show. Hehehe! Holla!

Da Manny's first sparring session with Martyinouk went wonderfully. C-Al's chances are that of a snowball in hell. But he is going to beat Da Manny/3m, he is still trying to sell. What's with him and his trainer Tim Lane, the kissing cousin of Lois Lane? Hurry up and get to Sin City, Team C-Al. You cats will start working out there this week, right? Don't worry. We got some spies on C-Al. Everywhere he goes, our spies will go. "Let's go, [gift-receiving verdict over tSR] champ!" There will be no gift of a decision or mercy for you in Macau, Champ! You've been fibbing that Tim Bradley gave Da Manny/3m a lot of problems and beat him. WITFIWWY? Da Manny/3G beat Bradley 21 out 24 rounds, so cut the make believe out. No problem, though, C-Al. Da Manny/3m is going to beat you for three rounds and KYTFO in the fourth. Holla!

I agree there will be no gift decision on Novemember 22. Algieri will win and he will will handily and convincingly. He will get credit for each of the eight or nine rounds he wins. I do not expect him to outpoint Pacquiao, only to have Da' Manny win the fight. All of us will see Algieri's victory. So will ther three judges. Algieri will be a unanimous choice for "Fighter of the Year" honors. -Randy G.
