BP - I am going to make sure that this time around I will win this fight convincingly, without any doubt.

BT - Bobby there is a huge Manny Pacquiao website called Pacland, where all of his loyal fans gather to talk about him, and you are included there as well. Have you heard or visited Pacland, and what do you have to say to your fans there?
