In his first game in the PBA the first pick overall Jun Mar Fajardo or "The Kraken" as some basketball fans know him. Fajardo posted 9 points, 12 rebounds and 2 blocks as his Petron Blaze Booster lost to Rain or Shine Elasto Painters 102-86.

It was clear in the game the Booster is still trying to learn Coach Olsen's system or Toromans system as some fans would say. They were clearly outclassed by the Painter in this game, both offensively and defensively. The big boys of Rain or Shine or better known as the Extra Rice Corporation of Belga and Quinahan took turns in shackling the number 1 pick Fajardo.

“As I said before the game, this is the best time to play Petron, they’re still in transition, they have a new coach,” said ROS head coach Yeng Guiao. “They’re going to be a lot more dangerous in the next two to three games and they won’t be the same when we play them the second time around.”

Jeff Chan, the 2012 PBA Gorvernors’ Cup Finals MVP, led the Elasto Painters with 20 points, while the Booster were led by Joseph Yeo with 16 points.

Freddie Roach, Pacquiao boxing coach wants strict "off limits policy" when Manny Pacquiao begins training at the Wild Card Gym in Los Angeles, California.

Roach wants stricter implementation this time around unlike in the past, when Pacquiao hangers, flood the gym premises whenever the boxer trains.

Roach wants an impressive outing against Marquez, especially after the Filipino's lackluster performance in his recent fights. He added that Pacquiao also wanted to put to rest all doubts of his victories over Marquez.

Roach earlier said he wanted nothing less than a knockout from PAcquiao when the Filipino slugs it out against Marquez.

Manny Pacquiao next fight will be on December 8, but his opponent has yet to be named. Pacquiao's next opponent for his December 8 bout will be named on September 18, and talks are there will be a fourth match against his nemesis Juan Manuel "Dinamita" Marquez.

I think I heard a saying that goes "One is enough, two is too much and three??well I forgot if there is a three or even a four" well you get what I mean. A 4th match against Marquez?? I'm not to upbeat on this fight though, if ever it will push through.

The two have fought three times in a span of nine years. They first fought in 2004, which resulted in a draw. The second fight in 2008 was won by Pacquiao via split decision. The third fight which was just last year was again won by Pacquiao with a majority decision.

The last Pacquiao-Marquez fight sold 1.3 million pay per views compared to only 900,000 for Pacquiao-Bradley.

I guess wishing for a Pacquiao-Mayweather fight would never be realize.
