I just thought of it now. I just turned the TV on as I am writing this post. I've never been a fan of boxing. But from as far as I can remember, I have been watching Paquiao's fight here on free TV since he was made known to be the Philippines' pride in boxing.
Before I went here I saw a lot of streamers outside inviting people to watch it in pay-per-view. If you're here in the Philippines, you have to fork over almost $10 on regular establishments like restos and dining halls. It can go as high as $15-$30, depending on the location (and if free meals and drinks are included in the package).
This event also affects some call center operations as they receive a lot of calls in relation to this fight. I even heard some agents talking about their bet and almost everyone seem to be an instant boxing expert as they strongly share their opinions about it.
Let's see if this event will also hit YouTube in the coming days.
Update: Pacquiao won the fight. Check the videos uploaded from YouTube
But what I know now is a lot of people all over the globe are glued on TV, even bloggers, while waiting for the best time to write a blog post in relation to this event.
How about you? Aside from watching international events like Pacquiao-Hatton fight, what triggers you to write a blog post?
