Global Pinoys Catch Pacquiao vs Margarito in a Texas Tussle Live on TFC!

The highly-anticipated match between Manny Pacquiao and Antonio Margarito is to be telecast on TFC.

It’s that time of the year again when Pinoys from across the globe are at a standstill – worries are forgotten, feelings of sadness and loneliness fade away, replaced by excitement and anticipation for one big event. It’s not Christmas, and he isn’t Santa Claus, but Manny Pacquiao sure packs a wallop every time he enters the ring. The Filipino Channel (TFC) will once again be right in the center of the action as the “Pambansang Kamao” takes to the ring once again. Broadcasting live from Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, TFC will once again give Global Pinoys premier access to Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao’s fight as he stakes his claim for a historic eighth world championship when he takes on Antonio Margarito on November 13 (November 14, Manila time).

TFC subscribers from the Middle East, Europe and Australia will have the special opportunity of watching the Pacquiao-Margarito fight for the vacant WBC Super Welterweight title, as it happens with veteran sportscaster Ronnie Nathanielsz providing ringside analysis with fellow boxing aficionado Ed Tolentino. “Watching Manny in action is always exciting,” says ABS-CBN Global Content Head Ned Legaspi. “We at TFC feel however that having a blow-by-blow account in our native tongue will make the fight resonate even more with our Kapamilyas.”

The legend of Manny Pacquiao has done nothing but continue to grow over the past few years. Even as he has taken down the likes of Oscar dela Hoya, Erik Morales, Juan Manuel Marquez and Miguel Cotto, TFC has been there to bring his fights to as many Filipinos as possible worldwide.

Margarito has a lot at stake as he‘s aching to rebuild his reputation that has been tarnished by controversy after he used illegal substances in his boxing gloves. Now, he sees defeating the man credited in international boxing circles as the pound-for-pound best fighter alive today as his one big opportunity to return to the top of the mountain.

TFC enjoins the rest of the boxing world to witness war in the ring with Margarito setting his sights on redemption. “We’re excited at the prospect of once again bringing a Pacquiao fight to our Kapamilyas around the world,” Legaspi says. “There’s nothing quite like the spectacle of a Manny Pacquiao bout that can thrill so many Global Pinoys and we at TFC can’t wait to share it with our subscribers once more.”

  1. ang cover ng gma ay ang pinas lng ndi po cover nila ang worldwide…….kasuso talaga

  2. TFC has been carrying Pacquiao fights kahit pa nung lumipat si Manny. Ang coverage ng rights ng Solar Sports to air the fight eh sa Philippines lang. Since nagkaroon ng di pagkakaunawaan ng Solar at ABS kaya sa GMA nila binigay to air it on free tv.

  3. it’s my first time to see that lady on t.v

  4. @ 5, Oo nga, kakatapos lang ngayon at puro patalastas pa kuripot talaga ang GMEEW. Suportado pa rin ng ABS-CBN si Manny kahit lumipat siya sa GMEEW. Eh kung hindi kaya? Siguro wala pa silang pakialam kung manalo si Pacman at sinisiraan pa nila si Manny hanggang ngayon.

  6. I thought the fight is exclusive to GMA?
    I smell a lawsuit.
    Oh well. Good one ABS-CBN! *Thumbs up*
    You upped the competitor. They can only show it Philippine-wide, but you can show it worldwide.
