Thanks Tedster for “taking over” this website, but I got this post.

In an article by Ivan Natividad from the website, AsianWeek, Nativdad writes:

Boxer Pacquiao Fights for History: Philippine hero aims to become first Asian to win titles in four weight classes

In the sport of boxing, there is no quit. There is no shade from the flashing lights and eyes of the world. There is only the fighter and the fight, fixed in a true moment of honesty with no room for faking. Months of tribulation coming down to one night, to stand toe-to-toe in front of someone who wants to take your head off.

This is where the spirit of a fighter appears, where the willful are separated from the gutless. It tests the backbone of true champions to dig deep after facing devastating blows and still prevail through pure determination.

There is perhaps no other fighter in the sport today that personifies the excitement and heart of a champion as much as the man they call “Pacman.”

What does it mean To Be Calimquim? Are you a city? Are you a country? Are you a fruit? It is none of the above. It is actually a Filipino family name.

How do you pronounce Calimquim? My preference is to say it as Ka-LIM-kim. Although, the American-ized way of saying it is KA-lim-kwim.
