Manny eyes 7 th weight
division world title

Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao will be punching for greatness in world boxing history when he faces reigning WBO welterweight title Miguel Cotto in their 12-round fight tomorrow (Phil. Time) at MGM Grand in Las Vegas , Nevada .

More than Cotto's championship belt, should the Pacman prevail as fearlessly forecasted by boxing experts and aficionados, the victory will give him a world title in record breaking 7 th weight division -- flyweight, junior featherweight, featherweight, junior lightweight, lightweight, junior welterweight and welterweight.

Both fighters packed the same power and have a long list of impressive performances atop the ring, Negrense WBO minimumweight titlist Donnie Nietes told the DAILY STAR. moremoremore

Perjury raps vs.
2 media persons eyed


The Bacolod City Legal Office will recommend to Mayor Evelio Leonardia the filing of perjury charges against two Bacolod media practitioners who filed plunder raps against him and two others for alleged payments of professional services amounting to P245 million, Secretary to the Mayor Vicente Petierre III said yesterday.

Franklin Villanueva and Sarah Teresa Esguera, who is a co-host of Bacolod Rep. Monico Puentevella in a local radio program, also filed plunder and grave misconduct charges before the Office of the Ombudsman against City Accountant Eduardo Ravena and City Treasurer Annabelle Badajos.

The complainants claimed that the respondent city officials allegedly used to pay the professional services of consultants hired by the city from 2006, 2007 and 2008, over and above the advise of COA to Leonardia to stop the hiring of consultants whose service did not show expertise or attention beyond optimum in-house capability.moremoremore
