Was Brian Velasco’s livestream a cry for help?

    Beneath the glass of his casket, Brian Velasco looked dapper in a black suit and necktie, his long hair laid loosely past his shoulders. His face appeared calm, showing none of the restlessness and tension he probably felt before he took his own life in the morning of January 16. «Ang guwapo,» said a female friend who joined me and two members of South Border in the wee hours of Jan. 18 at the wake for Brian. We met Portia Carlos, Brian's girlfriend. «Brian and I lived in the same condo building but in different units,» she said, and, with a tinge of sadness, added that they were a couple who were virtually together but not quite.

Pacquiao, Broner make weight

  LAS VEGAS---Manny Pacquiao has had little trouble making weight since ascending the 147-pound ranks. In fact, Team Pacquiao insiders said the 40-year-old Philippine senator was three pounds over the welterweight limit one day before Friday's weigh-in for his duel with Adrien Broner. But he still managed to tip the scales at 146 lb at MGM Grand's Garden Arena. Broner, who will try to wrest Pacquiao's WBA belt, also made the cut at 146.5. Broner's camp said he is a natural welterweight, just like Pacquiao, the eight-division champion who has fought at 147 in the last decade.
