Boxing Year in Review-May 2012
Manny Pacquiao pulled a Mayweather, and stepped in it, in mid May. The Congressman gave an interview to a pro-am writer, who had a Bible-pushing agenda. The writer asked Manny (pictured above with his pastor, Jeric Soriano, at the Wild Card in May) how he felt about gay marriage and the born-again hitter gave it a heavy thumbs down.
A charged passage from Leviticus was cited, and Pacquiao had to explain that he didn't recite that to the writer. The boxer came out--LOL--and explained he didn't hate gays, and didn't see an erosion of his fanbase. His skills, that was another matter entirely, some said.
