    Phl confident of Pacquiao victory

    THE Philippine government on Saturday expressed confidence that boxing icon and Sarangani Rep. Manny Pacquiao will triumph over U.S. boxer Timothy Bradley on Sunday’s (Manila time) boxing rematch.
    Pacquiao and Bradley's first boxing fight in June 2012 became controversial after judges in a split decision favored Bradley. Later, the World Boxing Organization eventually announced that Pacquiao won that fight.
    In that fight, Bradley ended Pacquiao’s seven-year, 15 fight winning streak and also took from him the title.
    The rematch will be held at MGM Grand Garden ring in Las Vegas.
    “We hope that another knockout would happen,” Deputy presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte said in an interview over state-run dzRB Radio-Manila.
    She added: “We are confident that Manny Pacquiao would win over Timothy Bradley.”
    Reports showed that crime rate in the country lessened every time he fought as Filipinos would be glued to their television sets.
    “Many of us are behind Congressman Manny Pacquiao in his fight against Timothy Bradley,” Valte said.
