(The Pacman with Marinduque Congressman Lord Allan Q. Velasco)
Yes, the Eighth Wonder of the World, who has made all Filipinos proud and the world applaud in admiration for his style in the boxing ring, showing intelligence, strength and mercy to bloodied opponents, did it again by adding another crown to his credit.
Manny Pacquiao, Congressman of Saranggani is the new WBC Super Welterweight Champion, his tenth world title in eight different weight divisions. He must now be considered the greatest boxer that ever lived. Born of very humble beginnings in a small and remote town in Bukidnon, the family, says his colleague, Senator Juan Miguel Zubiri of Bukidnon, moved to General Santos city when he was six to seek a better life. “His life is an inspiring rags to riches story”.
Asked in an interview why he did not knock out Margarito in the last two rounds when he could have, Pacquiao replied: “Hindi naman patayan ang boxing!”
Something a lot of people couldn't say of local politics.
