Will Pacquiao of Philippnes make it?
PHILIPPINE lawmakers on Friday rallied behind their colleague Rep. Emmanuel "Manny" Pacquiao of Sarangani Province as they expressed confidence the Filipino boxing icon would win convincingly over Timothy Bradley during their much-awaited rematch this Sunday in La Vegas, Nevada.
Nueva Vizcaya Rep. Carlos Padilla said Pacquiao is blessed with all the necessary assets to defeat Bradley.
"Manny has the guts, confidence, ring intelligence, stamina, speed, punching prowess and aggressiveness to overcome Bradley. These assets are also backed up by rigid training and a well-thought rematch strategy," said Padilla.
He said that once again, the House of Representatives and the entire nation would be cheering for Pacquiao in his quest for another victory.
"No less than Manny himself has confirmed that he still has the killer instinct and is unafraid to use his power and go for the knockout. Let's all pray for his safety and victory," said Padilla.
Rep. Rodito Albano of Isabela Province wished Pacquiao the best as he expressed confidence the boxing icon will get his revenge against Bradley.
"To Manny, continue to do us proud. You are a true icon and inspiration for every Filipino. No doubt you will emerge victorious during this Sunday's bout. We are fully behind you through our cheers and prayers," Albano said.
Rep. Isidro Ungab of Davao City said the Filipino people's overwhelming support for their boxing hero counts a lot to the morale of Pacquiao in his fight against Bradley.
"I also agree that Manny is the people's favorite since he has already regained his old form and 'fighting stance' in the ring," Ungab said.
