It is really strange how you sometimes get possession of an item of boxing memorabilia from the strangest of connections. I have recently got and autograph of Manny Pacquiao from a friend who was visiting his father out in the Philippines. This is an amazing item of signed sports memorabilia, it is the first item of signed memorabilia I have had in my possession from the great boxer himself. The signed boxing glove will certainly not be amongst my autographs for sale and it ranks as one of the best sports autographs I have received in many a year.
I am hoping that the next time my friend goes across to see his father he will bring me back some more sport memorabilia signed by Manny maybe even some signed pictures or signed boxing shorts.
Talking about boxing myself and two friends are trying to put on an evening of boxing in Aberdeen along with a former two weight British World champion. I am unable to mention any names as the deal has not been concluded but for boxing fans this is going to be a real treat. Not only will they see some great bouts but they will be able to collect items of celebrity memorabilia and many authentic autographs on the night from Scottish world champions and boxing legends.
I will keep you all informed of the progress of the boxing night in my next update, however I must sign off as I am going down to Glasgow to collect some music memorabilia this evening then staying overnight and trying to get a couple of autographed photos at the Rangers F.C. training ground as my best friends birthday is coming up and he is is desperate to get a certain football autograph before the gentleman retires at the end of the season. Sorry I cant mention the name as it is strictly hush hush and of the record!
