  1. FYI, the rating of 63.8% of Lethal Combination last June 29 was the fight of Pacquiao vs. Diaz alone. The previous ratings of other Pacquiao's fights included the undercard fights in average airtime. The record is still held by Pacquiao vs. Larios fight which got a whooping 65.8%. Its 54.8% is the average rating of Mano A Mano on its entire airtime.

  2. Paki-update mo yan kasi sabi ng AGB, they made a mistake on the rating.

  3. Hanggang ngayon hindi pa pala na-correct ito ng blogger, so maraming mami-mislead pa nito.

    Anyways, para sa mga readers na marunong magsuri, ito po ang patunay na mali po ang rating na nakalagay sa article na ito. Pacquiao-Larios remains No. 1 in Mega Manila among pacquiao's fights:
