The Cullens Vs. Manny Pacquiao? No Contest


The Examiner's Twilight Examiner, Amanda Bell, has an interesting article discussing a match between the Cullens and fighter Manny Pacquiao. Obviously, we all know who would win.

Sure Pacquiao's a great fighter, a philanthropist (richer than his own government, so he hands out food and necessities to the poor out of his own pocket), and he has a great deal of promise with his career, but take on Edward Cullen? Not so sure.

In the Twilight series, Edward Cullen (played by Robert Pattinson in the film version) is lightning fast (and I don't mean in the float like a butterfly sense, I mean lightning), "impossibly" strong (as Bella, played by Kristen Stewart, would say in the film version), practically made of concrete and marble, venomous, and a mind reader. So, Pacquiao's chances against Edward? Slim to none.

Same goes for Emmett Cullen (played by
Kellan Lutz in the film). He may not read minds, and he may not be quite as fast as Edward, but he will still just be a blur in your vision that you weren't sure you even saw as he pummels the next bear in line without an unnecessary blink of the eye. So, Emmett Cullen, Mr. Marley? No-sir.

Jasper, dear Jasper (played by Jackson Rathbone), would kill Manny Pacquiao. While the boxing ring, as he says, may be "filled with bloodsuckers already," it has nothing on this Confederate soldier turned fighter and war hero (who could probably also convince Pacquiao to relax by just looking at him).
