Manny Pacqiuao Abandoned His Religion, Rosary, and Sign of the Cross Lost the Fight Big Time against Juan Maquez December 8, 2012
The rise and fall of Manny Pacman Pacqiuao – His rosary and sign of the cross helped and gave Manny Pacqiuao 8 divisions and 10 world titles, but then when he got rid of his rosary and sign of the cross he fell flat on the ring for 2 minutes and unconscious.
Manny Pacqiuao is so used to wearing his rosary and doing the sign of the cross in all of his previous fights. His rosary and sign of the cross were his tools that gave him extra focus and confidence on each fight. Whenever he gets in trouble during a boxing match he was able to recover quickly and knocks out his opponent. Taking away his Rosary and sign of the cross were big factors on his defeat, a part of him was missing, he was not able to focus like he used to do.

Mendoza also addressed questions on whether Pacquiao’s renewed religious zeal may have affected the outcome of his fight.
Mendoza said Pacquiao’s refusal to wear a rosary might be part of his new beliefs as a Bible preacher. He said he will leave it to Pacquiao and his friends to explain why the former welterweight champ had discontinued the ritual.
